Lost

Chanel Lost Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a soft, medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a natural sheen. This particular shade seemed to apply (or at least, look) much lighter on my lips than swatched, and that might have had something to do with the medium coverage of the formula. It did not apply as well as I had hoped, as the color gathered in my lip lines and made my lips appear slightly more textured as a result. This shade wore well for three and a half hours but was comfortable to wear.

The formula is supposed to be a “long-lasting” liquid lipstick that “glides on like a gloss and sets with a luminous, velvet-like finish” and is hydrating. In my experience, they had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, while the wear time was between four and six hours (about the same as similarly hued-lipsticks) but was comfortable to wear and definitely non-drying. What I liked most about the product was actually the applicator, which was very smooth and easy to work with on the lips, as it had enough flex to maneuver naturally across the lips and made it easy to get crisp lines on the edges with it.

These are not for someone who likes a truly matte, flat finish that wears all day long, doesn’t budge or transfer, because these never quite dry down. They take anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes to “set” to a velvety finish–a light sheen but not glossy–and aren’t transfer-proof; I get closer to transfer-proof wear after several sips of coffee or blotting it down (which is true with the majority of lip products) but will not make it through a meal fully intact. They do reapply well, and they wear down evenly, so for someone who likes a semi-matte finish, longer wearing lip products, and finds traditional matte, liquid lipstick formulas too drying, these might be worth checking out. They are housed in a frosted glass tube with a glossy black cap and are lightly scented with rose (I’ll say it is subtler than usual for Chanel). All swatches were taken 30 minutes after initial application.

Highway

Chanel Highway Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright, peachy orange with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, but there were subtle–but visible–streaks along the edges a long with color that pulled into my lip lines from initial application. The consistency was thin, almost watery going on, but it “set” to a more substantial texture (but felt lightweight and comfortable to wear) after a few minutes. It wore well for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I love the *color* of Highway, but if it looked streaky on you, just try to imagine how it would look over darker pigmented lips like mine. Pretty sure this would be a hot mess on mine, so I will entertain a dupe from the dupe list instead!

I feel like we’re so drowning in liquid lipstick formulas that companies shouldn’t even bother putting them out unless they’re outstanding!

Some of the original shades launched were better than these ones – the lighter shades don’t seem to work well with it.

Looking through the swatches I was a bit surprised at the “barely there” look on the lips. It almost looks like nothing is there? With that kind of price, it’s a definite pass from me for now!

These just look a little odd on the lips! It’s hard to tell whether it’s a lipstick… gloss… matte lip… haha!
