Chanel Rouge Distinctif & Rouge Imprevu Rouge Allure Ink Liquid Lip Colours Review & Swatches

by Joseph K. Clark

Rouge Distinctif (842)

Chanel Rouge Distinctif (842) Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($40.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a medium-dark orange-coral with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage paired with a lightweight, spreadable consistency that was more watery and thin but still managed to go on evenly and kept its coverage level in the first layer.

The formula was quick to dry down to a transfer-resistant finish that felt flexible and relatively comfortable to wear. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and felt non-drying over time.

Formula Overview

$40.00/0.2 oz. – $200.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “ultra-intense, ultra-matte, longwearing lip color” that “fuses” for “lightweight” and “comfortable coverage.” The coverage was more semi-opaque than “ultra-intense,” but the finish was flat, matte after the product dried down. A second layer could be applied for more pigmentation (once the initial layer is set).

The initial texture was thin, watery, and fluid than I expected, and it almost seemed more like a blotted effect after it dried down. The product had more stretch and flexibility marginally to it after drying down, so it was more comfortable to wear and felt very lightweight on. I would recommend exfoliating before applying this formula to ensure a smoother application.

They lasted between five and six hours and felt non-drying for the most part. There was a very subtle, floral scent but no discernible taste.

Rouge Imprevu (844)

Chanel Rouge Imprevu (844) Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($40.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a brighter, pinky-red with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one layer, which could be built up by applying a second coat on top (but wait for the initial layer to dry down).

The liquid lipstick had a smooth, fragile consistency that felt watery but had a little more substance to it, which allowed the product to spread across my lips but go on evenly overall. It stayed on well for five hours and felt non-drying over time.
