Enviree is in my favorite lipstick formula, the rouge allure. It is a rose pink with shimmer that's quite flattering on my skin tone. However, I fear this shade may not be as forgiving on dry, flaky lips.
Sweet Beige is also another lovely pink-beige with visible gold shimmers that's slightly milky. It will look great layered on top of Enviree if you want a glossier, more shimmery punch of color.
Sparkle D'Or is really more of a layering color since it's not as pigmented by itself. You can add a lot of shine and gold shimmers on top of any lipstick shade with this.
Rouge Allure Lacque is one of my all time favorite liquid lipstick formulas from Chanel. It's always my go-to product when I need a long lasting lip color. I own all of the lacques from the permanent line except for Coromandel. At $32USD a piece, you can imagine how much I love these to buy so many!
Empire is a gorgeous color addition to the family but sadly it is limited edition. Dragon is permanent. If you're looking for a pigmented pink with subtle gold shimmers, look no further. Below is a shot with Empire in the bright sunlight so you can see the shimmers better.
Insouciance Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss is a brown-beige shade with shimmer. You can see the above picture of the gold and pink shimmers in bright sunlight. It's certainly a nice nude color.
Or is a gold eyeliner that hardly budges once it dries.
Famous Rouge Allure lipstick is a nice red to explore. I love the formula and the lipstick glides on smoothly. I wasn't particularly blown away by the shade but it is great for those who are generally afraid of reds.
Triomphal reminds me of Rouge Byzantine lipstick in a gloss formula. The shade packs an amazing punch of deep red with pink shimmers. It is simply gorgeous. Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss are slightly tacky but not sticky, and have great pigmentation. Below is a shot of Triomphal under the bright sun where you can really see the shimmers.
Overall, I love all of the pink lip colors and Triomphal. I would say the most outstanding pieces, if I really had to pick, are Triomphal and Empire. I think both of the formulas are outstanding and the colors are incredibly beautiful. They will look good on all skin tones. What makes them unique is the addition of gold and pink shimmers, which gives them an extra oomph under the sun or incandescent lighting. I didn't expect much from the glossimers but did end up liking Sweet Beige.
Bottom Line: Empire and Triomphal are must-haves if you're on a budget. Enviree and Sweet Beige are also beautiful shades to check out. I am definitely taking home all the pinks and Triomphal.
