I love this lip gloss. I love the color and formula. Itís a warm dusty rose with pink micro-shimmer. Great for all skin tones and shades. Smooth, moisturizing, non-sticky and glossy, but like a glossy lipstick. Someone on YouTube called it the steak of lip glosses. Itís the filet mignon of lip glosses. I want another color. They just came out with a red one and I already snatched that one up. I now want a bright pink one. Itís pricey but I see it as an investment. Lol. Confidence is limited edition shade so get it while you still can. Hmm, come to think of it, I need a back up.

Finally I caved and purchase this gloss after reading about and seeing how beautiful this colour is on blogs and swatching it in person. Initially I had wanted to buy this gloss in Imaginerie after seeing Lisa Elridge using that colour in one of her videos. Then when I swatched that in person, I found it too light for my Asian skin tone. Then I was torn between getting Confidence and Rouge Allure Laque in Santal or Ming :( finally i swatched all 3 on my arm during lunch and get my office folks to poll and majority go for this :D So I finally got it and I am happy with the colour, texture etc. One lippie less cos the price is pretty high.

I am lighter than NW15, neutral-toned but leaning towards cool. I wear Make Up For Ever Face & Body Foundation in #38. I purchased the new Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in 3 shades: #55 Confidence (LE), #58 Emoi, and #61 Fatale. Confidence is neutral rosy-pink color with very, very small and very, very subtle silver shimmer. It is great paired with any neutral pink lipstick, like NARS Dolce Vita or MAC Angel. The formula is very nice - thick, but not sticky, with a jelly-like finish that is slightly more opaque than you'd get with most Glossimers. The applicator is a double-sided doe-foot that is a littly flimsy, but nearly as much as I'd expected. The packaging is classic Chanel - opaque black with gold accenting (not see-through glass tubes as the testers are at counters), slighly taller than the the lipsticks or Rouge Allure Laques, but not as tall as the Glossimers. The RA Extrait de Glosses contain slightly more product than a Glossimer as well - 0.28 oz as opposed to 0.19oz. They are quite expensive glosses at $32 (Glossimers are $27), but I find them to be well worth the price. Unfortunately this shade is limited edition, but if it wasn't I would probably repurchase. As it is, I will absolutely repurchase more Rouge Allure Extrait de Glosses in the future.
EDIT 1/11/11: After wearing these glosses for a couple months, I've noticed that they tend to bleed more than any other glosses that I've tried. I decided to take 1 lippie off for this. It's not a huge problem, and wearing a lip liner can help, but it is annoying and I have never had this problem with the glossimers. I still love these glosses though and still recommend them.

Confidence is a really pretty pink colour that suits my skin tone (NC 40) really nicely. I've seen online swatches of this on many other skintones as well and they look great on them as well. I think this colour would look great on many skintones.
1. This colour is very wearable and work-appropriate. I wear this with Pink Explosion blush (also Chanel) on the cheeks along with MAC Patina and Chanel Mahogany (eyeshadows) and MAC On the Hunt (black liquid liner) on the eyes for a pretty but not overly done daytime look.
2. The staying power is actually really good too and the feel is nowhere near as sticky as the MAC glosses.
3. This product has a faint powdery smell that I find pleasant. Reminds me of baby powder.
4. I really like the applicator! The applicator is kind of wedge shaped and feels like a makeup sponge. Not hard at all like many other gloss applicators and you get no gloopy mess on your lips or on the tube.
1. It comes in a black tube (I have to look at the bottom so that I don't confuse it with Emoi and I have no idea how much product I have left)
2. The price is quite steep at 37 CDN dollars. But then again, there is a lot more product in it than MAC glosses so if you use these, then it is totally worth it.
Despite the above cons, I know I will be using this one up and I will definitely repurchase!

Once again this is a perfect MLBB kinda of color! It is in the newest range of glosses which are very different from the other Chanel's offerings. The SA shared that this is Gel based, for longer wear, more intense colour when you layer the gloss! Thus can play from sheer wash to intense full on color. I tried the matching lippie RA #66 Confidentelle but in the end I rather match it with Rouge Coco #10 Camellia which is very very similar. RA are more satin thus a bit too "smooth" to layer gloss. Rouge Coco isd a bit more creamy, lets Extrait Gloss kinda "grab" on and stays beautifully! This is more towards a rose shade with hints of medium toned brown to make it look very narural indeed. A bit of pearlised effect and the gel texture really makes the lips look full and plump.

The new formula- I have tried glossimers, aqualumiere gloss, rouge allure laques and now this formula. This feels the thickest on my lips. It is about the same sticky consistency as glossimers, but the glossimer formula feels a little lighter on the lips.
As to this particular shade- some have compared it to Ming Rouge Allure Laque and I have that shade. I don't agree. I think that Ming shows up more of the pinkish color it shows when swatching than this one does. This shade is like a rosy/pinky nude on, somewhat of a MLBB shade on me personally. My lips are somewhat pigmented though so that could be different for others.
As to the applicator- It is ok for the most part. I think I have to get used to it. I still like the aqualumiere gloss and rouge allure laque applicators better. The shape of this one just feels strange, but maybe it won't as time goes by.
The packaging is great in my opinion- I love all of the Chanel packaging, but like the Rouge Allure packaging most on the lipsticks and glosses.
