Love this one. It is the greatest lipstick I have ever had. It dries my lips a bit after several hours, however it is not critical as a lip balm improves the situation properly. The lipctick is applied evenly and does not need a lip brush or a pencil to apply the product and shape the lips. It adds volume a bit. Feels rather good. Will last through coffee break or lucnh.
The only thing that disappoints me in this product is the way it vanishes from the lips after four hours of wearing. The layer may seem uneven and to apply a new one I need to clean the previous layer to get an even coverage again.
Chanel Melodieuse (136) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright coral red.” It’s a brightened, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a soft, luminous shine. It had full color coverage applied to lips, and the consistency was lightly creamy so the lipstick glided across lips without pulling or tugging during application. The color distributed evenly and left lips looking smoother. It wore well for four and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating during that time. Too Faced Bon Bon (P, $21.00) is lighter. Givenchy Magnolia Organza (301) (P, $36.00) is slightly pinker/darker. Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) (P, $36.00) is similar. Maybelline Shocking Coral (P, $7.49) is darker, brighter, redder. MAC Elegant Accent (P, $22.00) is lighter. MAC Watch Me Simmer (LE, $16.00) is a bit lighter, warmer. MAC Heart to Heart (LE, $16.00) is very similar. Guerlain Giulette (P, $49.50) has a faint gold shimmer. Chanel Genial (LE, $34.00) is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches.
