Chanel Conte (202) Rouge Coco Stylo

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.

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, $38.00) is brighter (90% similar).

Guerlain Kiss Blossom (LE, $37.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Have We Met? (108) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar).

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. It had mostly opaque coverage that covered evenly and smoothly, while the shiny finish made my lips appear plumper. The color wore for three and a half hours on me. Tom Ford Beauty Pipa (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Out for Passion (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Cle de Peau Lotus Flower (P, $65.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Oooh, I really like the looks of Lettre, but if I add my usual SPF lip balm on top, might slide off my lips since the formula is already so emollient. And since I’m usually sipping water and tea all day long, I might run through this .07 tube super fast, so at $37 a pop, might last longer with a liner, will have to think about this one….

My best advice is to just be very careful about how much you apply. They just go on so easily and melt more readily that just being aware of how much you apply seems to help me manage the amount! It’s what I’ve done in the past with very similar formulas like Cle de Peau + Dior!

My experience with this new lippie is very similar to yours! I like how glossy and pigmented they are, but I think they’re a bit too soft. Like I told you in your sneak peek post, mine broke the first time I used it with a big chunk that just detached, and at least two of the testers did the same thing when I swatched them at a counter, getting smushed on my arm although I’m pretty light-handed.
Between that, the small amount you get, and the tendency to over-apply, I agree that they won’t last long at all!

Well, part of me would love to use up a lipstick, which I have never done before… For someone with a small collection who actually uses up their lip products, it’s probably not a good value, but that’s not a deal-breaker for me. I might not buy it again, but that would most likely be because there’s something newer by the time I finish it!

First of all, your eyeshadow is gorgeous! Lettre is beautiful. Do you find that these sink into chapped lips (emphasizing dryness)? Or do they soothe them, since they are supposed to feel like a lip balm?

These two shades look so summer fruit juicy! I especially love how Lettre looks, but as I am quite guilty of applying these sheerer lipsticks with multiple passes, it would be gone in no time. Hence, I will stick to a less pricey dupe such as UD Sheer Streak, perhaps just regular Streak instead.

Wow… Loving the shade lettre on ur lips. Waiting for all the reviews And then will pick my choices. But lettre is definitely beautiful. Btw, Christine; do u know if Chanel has discontinued velvet matte no 36 la caline. It was one of my favs; but cant seem to find it anywhere now; not even on their website. But chanel has not added it in their discontinued shade list either. Ohhh; how much I am lusting for that one.

Maybe it’s a good idea to keep them stored cool, in the fridge, so you do not over-apply that easily? Or wouldn’t that work Christine?

I’m super-interested in these 🙂 I love the slim packaging, and since they’re so sheer and glossy, I could probably wear all of the colours. I’m not overly concerned about how long they’ll last as I never use up a lipstick anyway! Can’t wait to see your reviews on the rest of the shades, Christine.

Haha! So true, Quinctia. It is a treat to wear something that IS hydrating after so many matte finishes (which, while maybe not drying at times, at the very least aren’t exactly richly moisturizing!).
