Chanel Le Blanc: Rouge Allures Désinvolte 86 and Joyeuse 87


This will be my last Chanel Le Blanc feature. Rouge Allures Désinvolte 86 and Joyeuse 87 are beautiful combination of bright and fresh. Désinvolte is a soft pinky-peach with a soft sheen. Joyeuse is a sheer hot bright pink. Both go on with a natural sheen and fairly sheer on my lips. These are of the typical Rouge Allure texture - smooth, soft and creamy.


Désinvolte looks like a straight soft peachy-apricot in the tube, however it goes on very sheer on my lips and looks like a pinky-peach than peach. See the hand versus lip swatch. There is a soft silvery sheen to the color which I think is why it goes on so sheer. Due to the limited nature of these I know many of you are wondering if there is anything similar. For Désinvolte, I would say yes. It reminds me of a softer/sheerer version of Chanel's long discontinued Lola Hydrabase. I think MAC has made quite a few Lustres with a similar finish. Compared to Peregrina Rouge Coco from Spring, Désinvolte is similar but softer.




Joyeuse is a cool bright hot pink with a soft sheen. I love it. For me it's hard to find a cool hot pink that doesn't look blueish on my lips (since I have a lot of olive). This one is hard to dupe in my opinion. NARS Venice is significantly more frosty, NARS Roman Holiday is significantly more pastel, MAC's bright pinks are all a lot more sparkly or opaque. Compared to Jersey Rose, it's a lot cooler and sheerer.



Here are my comparisons to the peach and pink Rouge Cocos from the Spring 2011 Collection (previously reviewed, swatched, and compared here) plus a few a few more.

As of now, I believe these two are still exclusive to Asia. The Chanel Beaute Studios I called have said no, they will not be receiving anything from the Le Blanc collections. I have not contacted Chanel.com to inquire about it though. If you don't want to scour e-bay or have a friend in the Asia regions able to do a custom purchase, you might want to keep your eye on Izzy's Perfume & Beaute Shoppe, I know in the past they have carried Asia/Europe exclusives from Chanel and Dior. (Not affiliated with them and FYI they have their own prices that are higher than US retail.)

  2. OMG stunning! I need to try both of them ASAP. I had EB Forbidden Flower and it looked horrid on me. My lips have almost no pigment.

  3. They both look beautiful!

    I already have Peregrina, so I probably don't need Desinvolte. Joyeuse would be fairly unique in my collection, but blue toned pinks don't usually suit me - could be why it'd be unique!

  4. Beautiful! But Désinvolte definitely looks too much like Peregrina.
    Joyeuse on the other hand has already been paid for. :)

  5. I'm so happy to see the collection. I thought the Joyeuse would resemble Coquette on my skin but I believe I will be in for a pleasent surprise. Thanks for providing the extra boost of confidence with my overseas purchase.

  6. I guess I need to find one of my readers in Asia to shop for me. You have given me the I-wants.

  7. Nice shades in pink and nude shades.It also depends what the skin tone is for the shade to stand against and sow it's color.

  8. Gorgeous items, but what else can you expect from Chanel?

    How does Joyeuse compare to Rouge Allure Laque in Phoenix? Do I need both?
