Healthy Pink (2)
Chanel Healthy Pink (2) No. 1 de Chanel Lip & Cheek Balm ($45.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium peach with moderate, warm undertones that looked pinker on my lips and slightly peachier and more orange-leaning on my cheeks. The finish was dewier on my lips and more satin-like on my cheeks, as it seemed to melt into my skin and lose some of its tackiness and shine, whereas on my lips, it seemed to melt and be balmier.
It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation paired with a lightly tacky, spreadable texture that wasn’t too thick or too thin. It applied evenly and blended out well as a cheek product over bare skin as well as on top of foundation. The product went on evenly across my lips with a smidgen of product that settled into my lip lines but not enough to be visible in person. It wore well for seven hours as a cheek product and two and a half hours as a lip balm (and was hydrating).

The formula is supposed to have a "nourishing, buttery formula" that "melts into skin" and add a "touch of colour." The brand recommended dabbing it on lips and/or cheeks, though it could be used with precise brushes if desired. I found fingertips worked well for both methods, though as a lip product, I could see a standalone lip brush being more ideal (I feel like I needed more product on my lips than for my cheeks).
The texture was like a thicker gel with noticeable tackiness, so I was very surprised that the product applied well on top of foundation and wasn't prone to lifting it up. On my cheeks, it dried down noticeably, though not fully, so it had a satiny sheen but did not appear as dewy as initially applied. On my lips, it retained more shine for longer, but it wasn't particularly long-wearing as a lip product.
It had sheer to semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation, which was most readily achieved on my lips. The light tackiness and thickness of the product seemed to help it work well on my lips as a lot of tinted lip balms are often so thin that they are prone to settling into my lip lines or catching on texture imperfections.
They lasted seven to eight hours as a cheek product before migrating a bit, and they lasted two to four hours as a lip product and were hydrating to wear.
