The next few weeks promises to be a confusing time on Messy Wands. Fall collections are in (yay!) but the weather and I are remaining resolutely summery, so do expect vacillating coverage between both seasons.
L-R: Dior Addict Wild, Chanel Troublant
In my sneak peek to Chanel Fall, I described Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss 68 Troublant as My Lips in Fall and my personal must have. Now that I've had time to play with it for a few days, I still agree, though I wish the microshimmer we see in the swatch is more prominent on the lips. Troublant is a very grown-up gloss in that I feel like my mother wouldn't be opposed to wearing it, and I say this in the best possible way.
The color is a plum rose (I guess it's not as brown as I previously thought) and such an easy shade to pair with fall makeup. The only deterrent I can think of is that it's just slightly sticky (and when I say that I compare it to LMdB lip stuff, not say, MAC Lipglasses), but it makes the gloss last on and on – I took a nap with it on the first day and when I woke up it's still there. That said, if you're limited to only one thing from Chanel's fall collection, I do think Troublant should be it.
