The Best & Worst | Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur

Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur
Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur

Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur ($37.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a lipstick pencil that twists-up (no sharpening required) and has a consistency that is incredibly creamy, soft, and smooth. The coverage varied from mostly opaque to opaque, depending on the shade, and the wear time ranged between three to five hours with some shades (like the reds and fuchsias) leaving a stain behind. It was a very hydrating and comfortable formula to wear, but they’re so soft that I felt like it was easy to over-apply the product when there isn’t much product in each tube (0.04 oz. compared to a standard Chanel lipstick, which is 0.12 oz.). Twist-up pencils usually contain less product than a twist-up tube of lipstick, but I wish these had a little more (like 0.08 oz.) or else not quite as pricey. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

Chanel Nude Le Rouge Crayon de Couleurs ($37.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a soft, medium brown with warm, rosy undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on evenly, but some of the color slipped into my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, creamy, wet but not too slippery, and comfortable to wear, as it was quite hydrating. This shade lasted for three and a half hours on me.

The formula is supposed to have “rich colour in a single stroke” with a “satiny” finish. The lipstick pencil twists-up (no sharpening required), and the consistency is incredibly creamy, soft, and smooth. The coverage varied from mostly opaque to opaque, depending on the shade, and the wear time ranged between three to five hours with some shades (like the reds and fuchsias) leaving a stain behind.

Rouge Corail

Chanel Rouge Corail Le Rouge Crayon de Couleurs ($37.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium coral-red with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had rich color payoff–was one of the most pigmented shades in the line-up–paired with a creamy, smooth, and soft texture that melted on the lips. The formula was very moisturizing but still long-wearing (five hours). There was a slight, reddish stain that it left behind as well.

Chanel Beige Rose Le Rouge Crayon de Couleurs ($37.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a soft coral with warm undertones and a creamy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered evenly, but there was some color that pulled into my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and soft (almost as if it melted upon contact) and comfortable to wear. It wore well for three hours on me and was hydrating.

Camelia de Chanel

Chanel Camelia de Chanel Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a soft, sparkling sheen. There was both finer, more luminous shimmer and slightly larger, more noticeable sparkles in this product.

Chanel says the formula is supposed to be a “sheer highlighting powder.” The texture was fairly smooth, not at all dusty or powdery, and denser but not stiff or difficult to get product onto a brush. The included brush certainly worked for applying to the face, though I still preferred a myriad of other highlighting and blush brushes in my arsenal. It had more medium coverage than sheer, though with a lighter touch, sheer coverage was certainly possible. The coverage was also buildable to full with two to three layers, which I think made it a more versatile product. The highlighter didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture unless worn at more semi-opaque to opaque coverage, and then there was slight emphasis. On my normal-to-dry skin, it wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.
