Chanel recently released a mini collection of their new lip gloss formula (Extrait de Gloss), 3 nail polishes and some more Rouge Allure lipstick shades.
The gloss has a flocked wedged shaped applicator that it a bit springy. It applies the products really well and is good for getting into the corners. Although the texture is quite thick it doesn't feel particular heavy on and has an almost gel like feel and applies very smooth. I do find it a bit more sticky/tacky than I would prefer and this is the only reason I would be hesitant to buy more.
I bought shades (£22.50 each) in #55 Confidence (neutral medium pink/rose) and #56 Imaginaire (pinky/peach), neither shade is shimmery as such, just a high gloss/shine finish.
Swatches L-R: RA in Confidentielle, Confidence, Imaginaire
On the face of it the colour sounds very dupable, however I 'm not sure if its to do with the finish but the high gloss and clarity of colour makes these that little bit special.
The collection has some really nice reds, pinks and nudes with a coral thrown in. I think all of them are meant to be permanent apart from Confidence. I also bought one of the new Rouge Allure lipstick shades in #66 Confidentielle (£22.50).
It is a neutral pink that has a little bit of brightness to it and has almost a slight frost in the finish. I quite like the RA formula, its creamy and long lasting although not that lightweight nor particular moisturising but nevertheless a good standard.
