I'm a lipstick junkie and have tried many brands from d/s to higher end department stores. I had a makeover at the Chanel counter and purchased this lipstick along with an eyebrow pencil, foundation and powder. It's a nice neutral color-pinky/chocolately, but it is too dry. My lips feel chapped and dried out after a few applications. I should say that I have tried many longwearing lipsticks and products, and I don't like any of them. I really like a moisturizing, creamy feel with full pigmentation. This one has good pigment, but is just not worth the high price. I've had better d/s lipsticks including L'Oreal, Revlon, Rimmel and No. 7 Boots. I do love Mac and Clinique l/s, too. So, no repeat purchase on this one.

Silhouette just doesn't work color-wise for me. It appears on me as a vivid rose, with no brown or plum tones. I can't "do" pinks without some brown in there somewhere, and I just don't see that with this shade as it appears on me.

I was given a gift cert for Nordstroms and spent part of it on this. It was recommended by the MUA and it turned out to be a great color on me. I love the elegant case and the fact that there is no fragrance (a problem I have had in the past with Chanel lip products.) It is a perfect balance of plum and brown--more plummy pink than brown.
Took it to the South of France with me and wore it most of the time.

Slihouette is my newest RA and so far quite possibly my favorite except for Naive. Like Naive, Silhouette is a pinky mauve-y browny color, but whereas Naive is nude, Silhouette is darker. Like Georgiasweety and kinonyc said, Silhouette is a little too mauve or a little too dark to be YLBB, but it is a lovely, subdued, low-drama color that is nice enough to wear alone, but strong enough to be paired with a full face. What I like doing is wearing Naive during the day, then if I have to go out, I wear Silhouette in the evening- they truly are the same color family, but Silhouette is more intense.

I quite like this lipstick. On my pigmented lips, it's a very cool-toned brown-pink. It's not something I'd wear everyday, I prefer it with heavily-lined 60s' eyes. I think I'll have to try it with a nude liner to see if I can get more wear out of this. The packaging is amazing, it makes me feel like a spy :) I would definitely buy more Rouge Allure lipsticks, maybe not this one, though. The formula is just amazing, so creamy and hydrating, and doesn't give me that white-ring thingy.

Love the formula of this lipstick. Its creamy, full coverage, yet feels lightweight & is long wearing. I also love the fact there is no scent! Silhouette is a mauve with a slight pink to it on the cool toned side. It can be worn lighter or layered for a darker look. Its not YLBB for most people imo, its darker then that and on the stronger mauve side to look natural, but still a lovely shade. This is my first Chanel lipstick and I absolutely love the creamy, moisturizing formula. The finish is a lustre so it looks alive on your lips without extra sparkle or frostiness.

My favorite lipstick. I use it over my Estee Lauder spice writer or benefit flush lip liners. The casing is so gorgeous and sophisticated! Every woman should have own at least one of these, go find a shade !!!
worth the 30USD!!

I love this color. On me it's too dark to be YLBB, but it's just a wonderful neutral cool mauve-nude color. I think it's probably a little reminiscent of Fresh Rendezvous Point, except it has that fabulous Rouge Allure matte texture, which means it settles in like a stain. I love it. And suddenly, it's reminding me of something--those old Prescriptives "Suede" lipsticks--same wonderful lightweight semi-matte texture.

I have waffled a lot about this lipstick...currently I like it. After I first got it (based on good reviews at MUA) I was very disappointed, feeling that it was too greyish/dull for me and almost worse than Nothing. MLBWorse instead of better! (It's a subtle browny mauve. Resembles Key Largo in the Aqualumieres but is prettier.)
Then I began to relent. Why do my lips have to look so phony? Can't they just look more - natural? or fake natural, since their natural color is sort of dead-flesh with a pinky-purple outline?
I have been influenced by a couple of things: 1) the current trend for nude lips, seen in many lines, including Dior and L'Oreal and 2) a costume flick I saw, a version of a Jane Austen novel, in which when the heroine* got better-looking, her (supposed to be natural) lips were not pink, but a kind of dusky confused purply-brown. We pink-nipple types (don't be grossed out!) don't get this dusky look on our own, but ISN'T THAT WHAT MAKEUP IS FOR??!!! Changing our looks?!
My favorite day lip makeup now is to put Silhouette on my upper lip, some sheer Revlon long-wear thing (any of several, sort of pinky rose) on the lower, and rub my lips together just once. Voila! I turn into a witch/fairy who can fly..... No, I don't. I get pretty lips without the upper lip looking too bright -- for me it looks best to have the upper lip more subdued.
By the way, here's a sneaky makeup trick for brighter or darker colors: apply them more heavily at the inner part of the lips and fade to something softer at the edges, even a different/lighter shade. This looks more natural/less fake-o, unless you are going for the Retro Movie Star thing, in which case do whatever you like.

Silhouette is my 2nd Rouge Allure l/s, my first is Attitude, and I find these two completely different in terms of consistency and finish. Silhouette is a pink-beige-mauve, and enhances my medium-pigmented lips with a just-bitten-my-lips tint (I have NC25 skintone). It's fairly well pigmented and slightly thicker and creamier in consistency than Attitude. It's a very neutral and wearable colour, and perfect for days when you can't decide which colour to wear. It's similar to Aqualumiere Barbados but less sheer and longer-lasting.

This is my HOLY GRAIL lipstick - I have searched and searched for the perfect lipcolour that's not too dark and not too light, that has that 'your lips only better' effect and I have to say that this is it! On me, the colour is a mauvey, brownish-pink. During the day I just wear the lipstick with no liner and for a stunning evening look, I pair the lippy with a deeper liner in either the plum or burgundy family. I will continue to buy this product and I intend to keep it as my tried and true HG lipstick!!!!

I prefer Chanel over MAC lippies in terms of staying power. And it makes my lips, way poutier. I'm loving this shade although i cannot use this for all of my blushes especially the peachy-orangey ones. Love the texture, : )!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I got samples of this and another shade. I normally dont like the scent of Chanel lippies, too rosy, but i tried it anyways. Lo and behold, no scent. What a shock. Silhoutte is a mauvey brown in the tube. Unfortunately it is a little too cool and mauvey for my preference. I can get away with it with my NC30 light olive complexion, but i wish it were browner and less mauve. This is very lightweight and moisturizing and lasts a couple hours. Lasts a little longer than normal lipstick but i still need a touchup during the day for moisture, but it does leave a slight stain. Downside is the $29 price tag. I dont love this shade so i would not repurchase.

I've fallen in love with Chanel cosmetics...high quality, beautiful colors, great packaging. And yes, it's a bit more expensive than other brands, but I am a believer that, more often than not, you get what you pay for.
"Silhouette" is a rosy-pink-neutral shade, a truly YLBB color. My lips are frankly very pale, but full, so while I like to look healthy and pretty, I am not going for the Bozo the Clown look. This feminine shade is perfect.
Secondly, Rouge Allure is one great line of Chanel Lipsticks. This is VERY comfortable, very easy to apply, and lasts quite awhile. It has a soft shine, but always looks appropriate. I am always very pleased to say that you only need a swipe, not half the tube, so I expect my purchase to last a good long while.
I would absolutely buy this again, and with my dark hair and pale skin it's perfect. (I wear this with Bobbi Brown Pale Pink blush...its perfect.)

I'm NC20, very pink skin, strawberry blond, blue-green eyes. This is probably the best YLBB shade I've ever tried. I have full, very pigmented lips, and unlike some others who describe this as mauve, on my super-pink lips, this is a pinkish brown/beige, which tones my lips down, makes them a bit more neutral and a lot more shiny and moisturized. I love Aqualumieres, but this formula is it's Autumn cousin - deeper, richer pigment with the same lovely texture and soft shine. I'm in love.

How much can I say I love this color?! I think it's such a great addition to the new Rouge Allure collection. Silhouette is a nice plummy/pinky/neutral color on my lips that just brightens my complexion and makes it seem more pepped up and alive. An Origins MA asked me what was on my lips b/c it was such a beautiful color. She thought it was my own lip pigment so I knew it looked natural but yet it still stood out if that makes any sense. I love the color payoff and the lasting power. I just need to touch up w/ some l/g and I'm good for awhile. FYI, I'm NC25 and this is a great color for me. I'm warm toned but I think just about anyone can pull this off. It looks boring in the tube but I think depending what you wear w/ it, it could be appropriate for office or evening. I love the classy packaging and it's sexy name too! Huge raves for me. I hope they don't discontinue this color!!!!!!

I've been on a bit of a Chanel l/s kick lately, especially the Rouge Allures. I'm a sucker for the cute packaging. But I also like the formula as it seems to last long without drying out my lips. The other three colors I have are a bit more "dress up" than Silhouette. Silhouette is a mauvey YLBB color. It's perfect for the office or any everyday lipstick. The color is just a tad darker and pinker than my natural lipcolor so it gives a nice polished but not overmade look. My coloring is NC15 with mediumly pigmented lips.

A medium plummy mauve that is more warm than cool, Silhouette is an average lipstick colour that does not match the quality of the Rouge Allure line. The shade itself reminds me of the lipsticks that are usually given in GWPs: not outstanding. You could easily find a similar shade for much less. Overall, it is a rather dull colour.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
Silhouette appeared as a beigey brown/red with a hint of mauve on my med. pigmented lips. This color did little for my PPP complexion so I returned this. I can see this shade being more for brunettes. The MA said this is the most popular of the Rouge Allures.
