Chanel Roman (208) & Recit (212) Rouge Coco Stylos

Chanel Roman (208) Rouge Coco Stylo
Chanel Roman (208) Rouge Coco Stylo

Chanel Roman (208) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark, raspberry pink with cool, blue undertones and very fine fuchsia shimmer dusted throughout (it’s not very prevalent). The consistency is lightweight, balm-like, soft and creamy, so it melts as it glides on effortlessly. The texture is thinner than you’d expect, so I didn’t have any issues with it feathering or looking streaky applied. This shade wore for four and a half hours and left behind a moderate stain. It was hydrating both during and after it wore away. Tom Ford Beauty Dangerous Beauty (P, $54.00) is more muted, warmer (95% similar). Bite Beauty #004 (LE, $36.00) is brighter (95% similar).

Chanel Recit (212) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, reddish plum with a fine dusting of gold micro-shimmer paired with subtle, cool undertones. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a lightweight, emollient consistency that was easy to apply and comfortable tow ear. This shade lasted for four hours on me, while the formula was hydrating.

Formula Overview

Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to offer the “intensity of a lipstick” with the “shine of a lipgloss” and “comfort of a lip balm.” The consistency of this formula is incredibly soft and melts against the lips, so it is easy to over-apply (and subsequently, easy to run through the product!) with a butteriness that you typically find in more emollient lip balms. In general, color coverage is semi-opaque to opaque, with wear coming in at three to five hours, depending on the shade. The formula is comfortable to wear and very hydrating both during and after wear. The downside is that these types of twist-up lipsticks (in the slim casing) tend to contain noticeably less than a standard bullet lipstick (0.10 to 0.12 oz. usually!) and the more pliant formula makes it easy to reapply and run it back and forth more than necessary (for the coverage). There’s a light rose scent to the formula, subtler than the Rouge Allure lipsticks, though.

Bite Beauty Rhubarb Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “rich plum rose.” It’s a muted, rosy mauve with subtle, warmer undertones with a soft sheen. It had rich pigmentation that applied with smooth, even color. The formula had a light creaminess to it and was a bit more emollient (and had more slip) compared to some shades in the range.

Formula Overview

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is supposed to have “bold, creamy color” with “extreme moisture, soft texture, and creamy wear.” The majority of the range is very pigmented–typically opaque with one pass–with a few shades being semi-opaque but usually buildable. All 34 shades are shimmer-free and vary being a soft satin finish to a natural finish (light shine but not glossy). The consistency is very lightly creamy to lightly creamyu with some shades requiring light-medium pressure and can pull the lip a bit when gliding it across the lips, though the color doesn’t appear ragged and the bullet itself doesn’t feel stiff (while other shades applied without tugging, so check individual shade reviews!) The majority of the shades I’ve tested have been lightly hydrating to non-drying and fairly comfortable to wear for the long-haul. They wear longer than average, from four to eight hours, depending on the intensity and propensity of the shade to stain.

In comparison to the Luminous Creme formula: The level of color payoff and lemony scent are the two things that are similar, but they feel quite different on. If you have drier lips and need the intense hydration that the Luminous Creme formula offered, I don’t know if you’re going to like these. The Luminous Creme formula had a thicker consistency with a very creamy texture that glided on and never tugged at all, and the thicker consistency paired with the glossier finish was more forgiving on lips as it didn’t emphasize lines, natural texture, dryness, or flaking. Some had issues with the Luminous Creme formula bleeding/feathering and shorter-wear due to the amount of slip (high), and the Amuse Bouche formula has much, much less slip, so the wear is longer. I didn’t typically experience bleeding/feathering with the Luminous Creme formula, and that is also true with Amuse Bouche, but I would expect less with this more satin-finish formula for most (but not all). The scent seemed slightly stronger in the Amuse Bouche range, but it wasn’t noticeable after I was done applying the color.

Chanel Article (204) Rouge Coco Stylo

Chanel Article (204) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and fine gold and fuchsia shimmer. It has a more multi-dimensional sheen to it in person, as the cooler flash of fuchsia shimmer is more striking against the warmer base color. This shade had opaque color payoff with a lightly glossy sheen that went on evenly and smoothly. It’s hydrating, wears for four and a half hours, and was comfortable to wear. MAC CB96 (P, $17.50) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Coral Optix (LE, $17.50) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Chanel Histoire (206) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, coral-red with subtle pink tones and a glossy sheen. It’s red, but it’s pink, but it’s coral, but it’s so red! It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft, smooth, creamy consistency that melted against the lips but didn’t over-apply too easily (but I still caution you about that!). On me, the color wore well for four hours and was hydrating while worn. Guerlain Rouge Kiss (325) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Bite Beauty Liquorice Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as an “oxblood.” It’s a rich, medium-dark burgundy red with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. The consistency was lightweight, lightly creamy without being too slippery or too firm, and applied with even, smooth color. It was mostly opaque, but there was slight translucency that let the natural lip color come through still. A little color gathered into my bottom lip lines, but the color seemed to be so rich and hugged just enough that I didn’t have issues with the color really gathering further while worn. This shade lasted for over six hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. I didn’t have feathering with this shade, but it was hard to get a crisp line with this straight from the tube so I would recommend a lip brush for cleaner edges. MAC Dionysus (P, $21.00) is glossier (95% similar). Urban Decay Shame (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). NARS Bette (P, $34.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Bite Beauty Black Truffle Amuse Bouche Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “black violet.” It’s an intense, deep purple with subtle, warmer reddish undertones and a natural sheen. This is one of the glossier shades in the range, but it is quite a bit less glossy compared to most of the Luminous Creme range. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that didn’t tug when applying but still had streak-free color. I had very slight feathering on this shade, which isn’t something I normally experience, but there are a few very deep shades I’ve had issues with. The color wore for over six hours with minimal fading, and while I worried the color might settle into lip lines, I didn’t notice it doing so over that time period. It was lightly hydrating. Bite Beauty Black Truffle (P, $24.00) is darker (95% similar). Pat McGrath Deep Void (LE, $38.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Feminist (LE, $5.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Chanel Conte (202) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and fine pearl shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a very soft consistency that glided across the lips, as if it was melting, with ease. This shade was more visibly streaky than other shades in the range. It was hydrating over time, but the color only lasted for three hours on me. Chanel Fleurie (139) (LE, $37.00) is brighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Lettre (216) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium, rosy coral with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish.

ColourPop Chi Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Chi Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Chi Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “cool-toned nude beige.” It’s a muted, medium brown with subtle, neutral-to-cool undertones and a slight rosy tint. It had a matte finish with rich, opaque coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. It dried down to a transfer-free finish, but it wasn’t as flat/pure matte as a lot of liquid lipsticks can be. It tended to stretch and show lip lines when I smiled, though the color itself lasted for six hours before fading. It was slightly drying.

ColourPop Kae Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep warm yellow brown.” It’s a muted, dark brown with warm, reddish tones and a matte finish. The consistency was thin and runny but applied fairly smoothly and evenly. It dried down fairly quickly and tended to emphasize lip lines when I smiled or stretched my lips at all. The color faded a little more noticeably from the center of the lips, though most of the color was intact after seven horus of wear. This shade was moderately drying on me. Colour Pop Limbo (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Coffee Addiction (P, $7.49) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Too Faced Naughty by Nature (P, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar).

ColourPop Rooch Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deepened russet wine.” It’s a dark, burgundy red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It reflects almost copper at times (I noticed this even in person; it’s an effect that seems heightened by camera but I noted it as I watched it dry down before seeing the photos for once!), even though it doesn’t seem shimmery. This one dried down unevenly with some parts of it drying down surprisingly quickly while other areas seemed to take longer to fully dry down. The texture was drier, not smooth to the touch, and flaked away and faded heavily from the center of the mouth. It was pretty drying over the six and a half hours it lasted. Kat Von D Vampira (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Pat McGrath McMenamy (LE, $38.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Deep Love (LE, $17.50) is darker, cooler, glossier (85% similar).
