The New Chanel Rouge Allure Glosses: For Full-Coverage Chanel Firepower When You Need a Little Chanel

Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss

Oh hai, flu shot!

If I’m going to have a stranger stick me with a sharp object, you better believe I’ll be wearing a little Chanel, because Chanel makes everything better (even flu shots).

At least that’s what I told myself when I applied the new Rouge Allure Gloss in 15 Sensible (one of 10 shades, $34 each, available now at Chanel counters and online) before I went to get my flu shot today.

Every year when I walk into the flu shot clinic and catch that first glimpse of the needle, the panic sets in… I start mumbling and sweating profusely, and my eyes expand to double their normal size.

I had hoped that 15 Sensible would make me look less, I dunno, frightened? Rabid? Ready to rumble? I’d always reckoned that full-coverage lip glosses like the Rouge Allures tended to convey the appearance of serenity and properly aligned chakras.

But that could just be the crazy beauty logic talking. πŸ™‚

Today, as I bared my left shoulder, concentrated on kittens, and waited for the nurse to jam the needle into my arm (“This won’t hurt at all,” she said. “Just a little pinch.”), I set my mouth into a stylishly glossy Chanel smile, even though I really wanted to scream, “THAT SH*T STINGS, MA!”

So, yeah. If you anticipate a huge horse needle plunging into your person, consider wearing one of the new Chanel Rouge Allure Glosses.

It may not fully relieve the searing, white hot pain (Just kidding! It’s not that bad.), but at least you’ll look fly…and your lips will feel great, since the non-sticky formula is also super moisturizing.

“The colour intensity of a lipstick. The lacquered shine of a lipgloss. With one seductive click, the sculpted applicator delivers high-precision, long-wearing coverage. The advanced formula, rich in Vitamin E, Sappan Wood and Green Tea Butter, instantly hydrates and comforts lips.

And, as an added bonus, you won’t even have to touch up after you get home and inhale all of those Fun Size Snickers (stress eating, yo!), because the Rouge Allures last about four hours, even through snacks. #glasshalffull πŸ™‚

    Supreme and Affriolant look fantastic. I can’t wait to try these glosses but I haven’t seen them around yet. My Macy’s doesn’t have a Chanel counter πŸ™

    These glosses are really pretty. I like the way they glow without being over-the-top shiny. Affriolant is my favorite here!

    I kind of have a needle phobia too, although it got better with age. When I was a teen I used to have panic attacks and cry like a river if I needed to have blood drawn. I still hate it but at least I’m not terrorized for a week before the appointment!

    I want these just based on the clicky-top packaging, I don’t even care what they look like! I’ve seen a lot of nice reviews of these though and I really want to try them!

    PS your face is looking FRESH as hell, what are you doing?? lovely glow.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Casey,

      It’s because of the new Chanel highlighter — the one from the holiday collection. I layered it underneath my fave Chanel blush, Malice, in these pics. That way the shimmer peeks through the blush! πŸ™‚

  5. Pirate is gorgeous on you!! I liked Supreme as well.

    Whoaaa sorry to hear about the flu shot! Told you these are awesome though! I have Affriolant, Supreme, and Seduction. Love Pirate on you so much as well! I kinda went off the whole red lipstick thing (I KNOW, RIGHT?). Seeing Pirate makes me want to get back on board again!

    I am so wearing chanel for my next shot – in a series of 3 – next week. I am considering to go get my nails done as well – as a bribe since last time was horrible! Blood batch, 4 week bruising and I am still a bit tender in the spot where the needle wenr in, and it has been 2 months.. I do so NOT look forward to this

  8. Affriolaaaaaant, ugh, that one is SO pretty, it’s definitely my favorite!

    Those glosses are beauties! I hope you got a lot of kitty lurvies for your ouchie. πŸ™‚

  15. Christina says:

    Holy smokes you look beautiful in these pictures, Karen! I am really loving your glowing skin lately!

    • Karen says:

      Thanks, Christina! I’ve been using a different brush to apply foundation and I think it’s been making a difference. I’m also wearing a new Chanel highlighter (the one from the holiday collection), which is AMAZEBALLS!

  16. Kalli says:

    Ohhh dang, I have Pirate in lipstick form, I may have to spring for the gloss as a Christmas-present-to-myself this year!

  17. Maybe Sensible wasn’t the right choice and Pirate would have had you all “ARRR-Pirates feel no pain”?
    4 hours with snacks is quite impressive for a non-sticky gloss imo.

    • Karen says:

      Hi LindaLibraLoca,

      Haha, I actually love that shade because of the whole pirate thing. When I get around to dressing up as a pirate for Halloween (one day), I’m going to have to remember to wear it.

      Will Little Bean be wearing a costume this year?

  18. Tatiana says:

    These glosses are gorgeous! Need to make a trip to Nordies to check them out. Thanks for reminding me I need to get a flu shot.
    Hope your arm doesn’t hurt too much.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Tatiana,

      You’re welcome. Treat yourself to a little Chanel before or after your shot! πŸ™‚

      My arm is ok today. A little sore but fine!

      Hope you had a nice day… is it Friday yet? LOL

  19. pegg says:

    You look gorgeous in all the colors! Been seeing these a lot – need to check them out! Wondering when I should get the flu shot this year – a nurse told me to wait as long as possible in the season as they only “last” for so long…

  20. ReneeP says:

    What did you wear on your eyes here? It looks so fresh and natural.

    • Karen says:

      Hi ReneeP,

      Thank you! I’m wearing the Petrouchka Palette for Eyes and Cheeks by Guerlain. It’s from the new holiday collection. I buffed the shimmery beige shade all over my lids, then patted and blended a mix of the copper and gold from the lash line just barely in the crease. I did black liner to tightline the upper lash line, and then I applied a shimmery gold liner (Chanel’s new Or Blanc) on the lower lash line to open up the eye. Then mascara, of course. πŸ™‚

      Happy Friday to you, and let me know if you have any other questions!

  21. ReneeP says:

    Thank you! I think I NEED that. Beautiful!

  22. Ana says:

    First time visitor! I’ve just recently started wearing make up – in my forties. Better late than never right! I was visiting the US and bought some MAC & Chanel as it’s much cheaper there. You mention you are using a new brush to apply foundation. Can you let me know which one? I wished I’d read your blog 3 weeks ago – on second thought that would have been dangerous
