As soon as I saw Troublant on Messy Wands earlier this week, I fell in love and promptly ordered mine from Saks ($32). This elegant gloss indeed is perfect for autumn, though it pulls far more brown on me than it does on Xiao, even when I stand under a brighter and bluer light source. I'm still happy with the color, as it is extremely flattering paired with green-hazel eyes. There is just enough mauve in the shade to make it interesting yet sophisticated.
The consistency is slightly sticky, and you can see from the close-up that it's a bit transparent. Application with the doe foot is a breeze. The gloss lasts for hours on my lips, with the color remaining true throughout.
Chanel's Fall 2012 makeup offerings are all about basic classics, and Troublant Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss fits the plum-brown niche perfectly. It is one gloss that makes sense for autumn.
