Malaysia has lastly joined many different international locations in permitting us to take away our masks in public (with exceptions), after 2.5 years of necessary mask-wearing. I can’t say I’m terribly excited in regards to the information, as I intend to proceed masking for the close to future, however I perceive how that appeals to the sense of normalcy that many individuals crave.
However the mask-off coverage signifies that we are able to return to carrying lipstick!
What higher time then, to inform you in regards to the new Chanel Rouge Attract L’Extrait refillable lipsticks.
Chanel calls this the Rouge Attract l’Extrait Excessive Depth Lip Color, and I didn’t admire that description till I swatched them.
I used to be fairly blown away! Now, THIS is a heat welcome to the return of lipstick! 😀
Chanel Rouge Attract l’Extrait Excessive Depth Lip Color – Refillable lipstick
What makes the Rouge Attract l’Extrait lipsticks particular is that they arrive in refillable instances. As you possibly can see within the picture above, the lipsticks might be eliminated and brought aside, as soon as you might be completed with a tube of color, or if you wish to swap it out for a distinct shade.
This reduces waste, in that you just don’t have a purchase a brand new lipstick every time you need a new color otherwise you end your previous one. You simply want to purchase a refill, as a result of the case will final you far longer than your lipstick will (or ought to!) 😀
However what is de facto spectacular about these lipsticks are the feel and the depth of color. It’s a POW! In your face color, with a depth and opacity that’s really awe-inspiring!
Refillable packaging – 1 case, 20 colors
The brand new Chanel Rouge Attract l’Extrait lipsticks are available in 20 colors, however you’ll solely ever want 1 case for them.
The case comes with the modern lacquered black cowl, that’s slimmer, and a golden base in which you’ll be able to affix the refillable lipstick tube. Like all lipsticks within the Rouge Attract line, the bottom lies flush within the case, with a pop-up contact mechanism. The refill tubes lock securely into the bottom and don’t really feel wobbly or flimsy. It does really feel identical to a model new tube of lipstick.
Every slim refill comes with a lightweight, golden cowl. The entire bundle is stored elegant and modern, consistent with the model’s ethos.
Nonetheless, if you happen to thought you would simply purchase the refills with out having to splurge slightly further for the case, Chanel has thought of that too LOL! 😛
The Rouge Attract l’Extrait refillable tubes can solely be snarled as soon as they’re mounted into the bottom of the case. The mechanism to twist up is embedded inside the bottom of the refill tube. So, in contrast to most manufacturers with refillable lipsticks, you can not simply twist the underside of the refill tube to make use of the lipstick, and forgo the case. Sure, they considered the sneaky particulars! 😛
Personally I discover it slightly gimmicky, just because I don’t actually go for these kinds of packaging. Whereas I can perceive that some folks could like this, as a result of it prices much less to personal extra colors, it nonetheless isn’t that inexpensive.
The amount per tube too appears lower than the common Rouge Attract lipsticks. The Rouge Attract l’Extrait are 2g every, whereas the others are 3.5g. That’s a fairly substantial distinction in a tube of lipstick.
Excessive-intensity, full pigment color
Once I learn the outline, the place it stated ‘excessive depth lip color’, I didn’t assume an excessive amount of about it. I’m accustomed to most of Chanel lipsticks, and when it says ‘excessive depth color’, I are inclined to take it with a pinch of salt.
Nicely, not this time!
These swatches of the Rouge Attract l’Extrait lipsticks have been made with simply 1 cross of the tube on my hand. There was completely no tugging, no dryness, and it went on pigmented, daring and intense.
What a option to have fun the return to carrying lipstick! 😀
The one exception for me was 812 Beige Brut, which seems to be like a uninteresting nude color within the tube, however swatches on pores and skin with a pink-brown hue that’s pure and fairly flattering. There may be simply sufficient pink in it to maintain issues fascinating, so that you don’t appear to be a corpse. Nobody must appear to be a corpse lately!
Nonetheless, I discovered that 812 Beige Brut is a bit more sheer and fewer intense than the title implies. It’s a little clear, which permits on your pure lip color to return via, which I feel helps with the wearability of a color like this one.
The opposite colors I’ve are shiny and daring and intense – wow!
Clean, Light-weight, Creamy Satin texture
The Rouge Attract l’Extrait lipsticks have a ravishing easy, creamy satin texture with a slight shine to the color. It should switch, so if you happen to favor one thing that lasts and lasts, then this isn’t the one to search for.
What I like about it’s the light-weight texture, and the way snug it’s on lips regardless of the daring colors. Historically, lipsticks with satin textures do have a tendency to take a seat slightly extra closely on lips. However these don’t.
I do discover that the longevity is sort of good. That stated, whereas they promise incomparable depth for as much as 8 hours, 12 hours of hydration and 10 hours of safety for lips, I don’t put on lipstick that lengthy anymore so I’m unable to vouch for it.
I do discover nevertheless, that the daring color does ‘stain’ slightly, so even when the shine is gone, the color will nonetheless stay. Elimination with a make-up remover or oil cleanser is beneficial, to be sure you get all of it off.
If, like me, you’re easing again into the world of carrying make-up and never carrying a surgical masks out in public, the Chanel Rouge Attract l’Extrait lipsticks can be a fantastic reintroduction to color and face-painting 🙂
IN A NUTSHELL
The Chanel Rouge Attract l’Extrait refillable lipstick comes with a creamy-satin texture and daring, high-intensity color. The refill mechanism could be very sturdy however proprietary, so you possibly can’t use it with some other lipstick tube. You may’t use the refill by itself, with out the bottom and case, as a result of the mechanism to twist the lipstick up and down solely works with the bottom. This implies you must purchase 1 full bundle lipstick first, then purchase the refills. The colors are stunning. Daring, intense and swipe on like melting butter. They don’t journey, however will switch, and do final lengthy. Like all Chanel lipsticks, there isn’t any discernible scent or perfume, in order that’s one thing I like. In case you take pleasure in daring color lipsticks, then this could be a great one to take a look at.

Are you interested by these Rouge Attract l’Extrait refillable lipsticks? Do you want the concept of refillable lipstick tubes?
For me personally, it doesn’t matter if lipsticks are refillable or not. Once I carry a number of lip colors in my bag, I carry completely different tubes and it doesn’t hassle me. Maybe, if I had simply 1 or 2 lipsticks, it’d make extra sense to personal refills 🙂
