Beauty PSA: Chanel Rouge Allure Laque shades to be discontinued

... including THE Rouge Allure Laque Dragon.

I realized I posted this on my Twitter account but not on the blog, and it's quite imperative that everyone knows before it's too late. Temptalia tweeted this news some time ago and while there was some misinformation flying around after, she finally confirmed it:

Needless to say, the beauty community was devastated. When news broke, Nordstrom was immediately backordered on Dragon. The Boston Neiman Marcus was already out of stock of it when I checked yesterday. Currently, you can still get all shades from the Chanel website, but do know Dragon, at least, is going fast. Everyone is scrambling around to stock up on their favorite shades. I'm not the "backup" kind of girl, but I did purchase two, and have immediate plans to try out the rest to make sure I won't be missing anything when they're gone.

I have no words for why Chanel would choose to discontinue (in my opinion) their best lip formula.


  1. that is such a shame... I have Ming and Santal and I love them =( Now I feel like I should buy Dragon to see what I'm missing out on haha I know it's pretty for sure!

  2. This is totally shocking! What WILL they bring out as a replacement?! Better be damn good!

  3. This is tragic. I just bought Dragon too and I'm now I'm torn if I should get another or not.

  4. Thanks, you just reminded me! I've rounded out my collection to the complete set for good measure. Neiman's online seems to still have them in stock.

  5. UGHHHH, so sad to hear this news. I've had Ming and Dragon for a while now and have recently rediscovered what wonderful lip products they are. I just got brave enough to wear red lippies too and Dragon is my favorite. I'm not a backup girl either, but these are definitely getting backed up.

  6. Noooo, why are they doing this to me? I'm on a lippie ban right now :( Well, goodbye Dragon...sorry I never got to meet you in person.

  7. Hm, I had thought Dragon was one of those overrated shades, but I just pulled up your modeling shots and the color is gorgeous on you. I've ordered one tube just on principle. :p

    By the way, I have officially called in my order of Antiquite Poupee. Exciting! It was my first time talking to Dustin, and he was extremely helpful. I told him your blog referred me. Now I want to receive a makeover from him in person. That's the nice thing about living in the DC Metro area; Boston and NYC are just a train trip away. Thanks for hooking us up, Xiao.

  8. BlushingNoir- Right?! I'm looking at Dynastie...

    JC- damn right you are!

    Karyn- I'm sorry but I'm probably not the voice of reason for this :P

    J- they're not all out yet i'm sure, but of course if there's something you want better get them now than scramble after them later

    Tina- I feel you :(

    Makeup Morsels- awww. Well hopefully they still have some when your ban is over?

    Leigh- Oh you should definitely make that trip to NY! Dustin would make you so beautiful (not that you aren't gorgeous already of course!) you wouldn't even believe it :)

  10. thats so sad. i'm not a fan of the formula itself, but it sucks that someones HG item is a RAL. let's hope chanel comes out with something better.

  11. I think I'm going to have to finally get one of these but I want to check the ingredients first. Can anyone who still has the box from any shade tell me the ingredient list? I can't find one online. Thanks!

  12. OMG WHAT!? ... just.. ... what!? Did Chanel ever explain why?

  13. Oh, I didn't mean I don't believe you/Temptalia. I just didn't want people to despair, so I was trying to be helpful!

  14. J - nono did I give you that impression? I'm sorry T_T I haven't had time to look at the rest sigh. But it seems like there's still a lot lying around :)

  15. Anna, I don't know if you'll still check this, but here are the ingredients:

    Diisostearyl malate, polybutene, C10-30 cholesterol/lanosterol esters, octyldodecanol, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, dipentaerythrityl tetrahydroxystearate/tetraisostearate, glyceryl behenate/eicosadioate, silica dimethyl silylate, mangifiera indica (mango) seed oil, sorbitan isostearate, ethylene/propylene/styrene copolymer, aluminum hydroxide, phenoxyethanol, tocoppheryl acetate, propyparaben, butylene/ethylene/styrene copolymer, Peg-8, parfum (fragrance), tocopherol, ascorbyl palmitate, BHT, citric acid, ascorbic acid.

    May contain: CI 12085 (Red 36), CI 15850 (Red 6), CI 15850 (Red 7 Lake), CI 15985 (Yellow 6 Lake), CI 17200 (Red 33 Lake), CI 19140 (Yellow 5 Lake), CI 42090 (Blue 1 Lake), CI 45380 (Red 22 Lake), CI 45410 (Red 28 Lake), CI 47005 (Yellow 10 Lake), CI 73360 (Red 30 Lake), CI 75470 (carmine), CI 77163 (bismuth oxychloride), CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (iron oxides), CI 77742 (manganese violet, CI 77891 (titanium dioxide), mica.

  16. Why Chanel would discontinue these is just beyond me. Dragon is a crowd favourite!

    and women think. Also, thank you for allowing
    me to comment!
