Chanel Charmeuse #142 and Fleurie #139 Rouge Allure - Jardin de Camélias Collection


There are two new Rouge Allures in the Chanel.com Jardin de Camélias Collection ($34 each, both limited-edition). Charmeuse #142 is a neutral nude beige with a slight shimmer and Fleurie #139 is a soft bright pink with fuschia sparkles. Both are buildable lip colors with a slight transparent quality so you can see a bit of your natural lip underneath. True to Rouge Allure formulas, they are creamy and easy to apply.



Swatches on the hand show that while Charmeuse is a straight beige nude in the tube it pulls a bit pinkish on my olive-toned hands:

Comparisons swatches for reference: Tom Ford In The Buff (review here, swatches here), MAC Touche Huggable Lip Color (review here), Tom Ford Paradiso (review here) and MAC Out for Passion Huggable Lip Color (review here):



Charmeuse #142 and Fleurie #139 Rouge Allures are both easy to wear lip colors that require no additional fixing. They work straight from the tube and lasting power is quite good. I like both colors but they are very similar to other colors from Chanel and other brands so you may want to skip if you already splurge on MAC Huggables or Tom Ford Lip Sheers. I ordered them sight unseen so I did not  know exactly what to expect from online photos.

Both colors Charmeuse and Fleurie are in the Rouge Allure formula and are limited-edition. In the US they are both exclusive to Chanel.com.

  1. Hi Sabrina,

    I'm intrigued by the soft warmth in both CHANEL Charmeuse and CHANEL Fleurie that seems to make them the perfect colors to bridge between the current and upcoming season! I'm quite tempted, to say the least :)

  2. I have not had the pleasure of enjoying a Chanel makeup product. I would love for that #139 Fleurie to be my first Chanel product to haul and review!

  4. Fleuri is that perfect spring colour: I've been hesitation over Tom Ford Paradiso for being slightly too warm so Fleuri is that bit cooler & pinker

  7. Your photos are always flawless! It makes me wish I lived in CA. This was a very interesting post, especially the comparison. I can't believe how many LE shades from this spring are so similar. Ironically, it pushed me to finally order TF Paradiso rather than Fleurie. I keep looking at the nude swatches and wishing I could pull that off.
