Chanel Rouge Allure Fougueuse (138) and Melodieuse (136)

My final lipstick picks from the Chanel Notes de Printemps Collection (see previous here and here) are the Rouge Allure lipsticks in the shades: Fougueuse (138) and Melodieuse (136).

The Chanel Rouge Allure formulas are meant to be a hydrating, full coverage, long wearing colour. I find that these are quite comfortable on the lips. As they are very comfortable and light feeling they do not provide the wear time that say, a matte lipstick would. These do last a good 4 hours on the lips. The finish of these lipsticks in particular provide a luminous, satin finish.

Fougueuse (138) is described as a bright pink. I would say that it is a bright pink with cool undertones. This shade is beautiful as most blue toned lipsticks can look a little jarred against warmer skin tones but as this is a medium pink shade, it sits nicely on warmer, yellow skin tones.




Melodieuse (136) is described as a "bright coral red". I would call this a dark pink-coral. I adore this shade and is my favourite of the two. Anyone who likes corals would welcome this to their collection as the pink makes it incredibly unique and very Spring appropriate. 



Both shades are almost full coverage and can be built up to full opacity. They both have a nice sheen to them without them being slippy or settling into fine lines. They wear down well and last a relatively long time in terms of the texture of them. They are both incredibly Spring/Summer appropriate shades and would suit a multitude of skin tones however the shades are not "unique" and you could probably find a similar shade to them for much much cheaper.

What are your thoughts on Chanel Melodieuse and Fougueuse?
