Chanel first introduced their range of Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss back in 2010 – I purchased four from their initial launch (swatched and reviewed here) and never found another shade that appealed to me until I swatched Troublant.
Troublant was released as part of their Fall collection and I bought it at TWD890, about S$37. It contains 8g of product, made in France.
I would describe Troublant as a dusty rose with brown-grey undertone, infused with copper and gold shimmer. It has an ultra glossy, gel-like finish which is the nature of all Rouge Allure Extrait de Glosses. They are quite pigmented and can be layered for more intensity.
The texture is smooth and the I like the flexible two-sided applicator – applies easily and seamlessly on the lips.
However, the consistency is rather thick and slightly sticky – not as sticky as MAC lipglosses but along those line. And they are not exactly long-lasting but lasts longer than other ordinary lipglosses on me.
Swatches above taken under natural day light, without using flash. From left to right, we have #51 Insouciance, #52 Genie, #55 Confidence, #57 Insolence and #68 Troublant.
Besides Confidence, Troublant is one of the other shade I really like. I like that it’s not too dull but still bears a hint of rose to brighten up my complexion. I guess the glossy finish also plays a part – very alluring.
I adore this product as its formula isn’t too drying and I really like this shade too. This is probably one of my must-haves from Chanel’s Fall collection this year. Just in case you are wondering, I didn’t pick up any eyeshadows, highlighter or blush from the collection except the nail polishes, eyeliners and this lip product.
Looking forward to include Troublant in one of my upcoming looks.
Thank you for looking.
