Chanel Rouge Beige Confidentiel & Beige Secret Allure Laques Reviews & Swatches

by Joseph K. Clark

Beige Confidential (82)

Chanel Beige Confidential (82) Rouge Allure Laque (2020) ($40.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium-dark, coral-orange with strong, warm undertones and a lightly shiny, satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without catching on imperfections in texture or emphasizing my lip lines.

Laques Reviews & Swatches

The consistency was lightweight, very fluid, and felt like a liquid lip balm as it was pretty creamy going on (while still being relatively thin). However, it set to a lightly tacky consistency that didn’t slide around at all but was still comfortable to wear. It wore well for five and a half hours, which wasn’t quite the 12-hours promised but still longer-wearing and hydrating overall.

Formula Overview

$40.00/0.18 oz. – $222.22 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have an “ultra-intense color with long-wearing satin shine in one swipe” that lasts up to “12 hours” and is comfortable for up to “8 hours.” The majority of shades I tested had more medium to semi-opaque coverage in one layer, which could be built up by applying a second layer.

The consistency felt more emollient and like a liquid lip balm initially. Within 30 seconds, it transformed to something slightly thicker, denser, and tackier, which helped keep the product in place better. I also felt like, over time, the color seemed to look more even and was less likely to sit in my lip lines, but this could take an hour or longer to be visible.

It was felt relatively lightweight and had more of that “satin shine” the brand claimed after an hour or two of wear, and it felt significantly less tacky. Other formulas on the market have a similar start and finish in feel (going from something thinner to something thicker and tackier). Still, the tackiness wearing down faster with Chanel’s formula ended up reducing longevity significantly.

The color lasted between five and seven hours, with more profound, pigmented, and brighter shades lasting longer than lighter ones. They did not survive that well through a meal, and I’d expect better survivability for something that is marketed as lasting up to 12 hours. They were very comfortable and hydrating to wear, though, and they left my lips in better condition after wearing different shades over a few days. They had a floral scent but didn’t yield a noticeable taste for me.

And no, these are nothing like the previously-released Rouge Allure Laque formula. The older procedure has more like a literal liquid lipstick, so it was creamier, thicker, and the system didn’t change or set after a minute or so; at most, it wore down to a more satin to semi-matte finish after a few hours of wear (as any glossier lipstick might). While they share the same name, they’re really different types of formulas.

Beige Secret (83)

Chanel Beige Secret (83) Rouge Allure Laque (2020) ($40.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a muted, reddish copper with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff that adhered evenly to my lips and applied fluidly without settling into my lip lines.

The consistency was lightweight, very creamy, and thin with a fair amount of slip initially but then set to a lightly tacky, very light product that was transfer-resistant. It stayed on nicely for six hours and was hydrating over time.
