Romance (955)

Chanel Romance (955) Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($33.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a soft, rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and a fine, pearly shimmer throughout that gave it more of a satin-to-pearl finish applied. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and comfortable to work with on my lower lash line as it did not tug or skip.

It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that applied best with shorter, overlapping strokes, which ensured full coverage as I went. The eyeliner stayed on nicely for nine hours before showing signs of fading/thinning.

Formula Overview

$33.00/0.01 oz. - $3300.00 Per Ounce

The Stylo Yeux formula is supposed to be a “waterproof, smudge-proof” eyeliner with a “gentle, soft” texture. I gave up on this formula bit ago, as the majority of shades I had tried had a really firm, stiff, and painful-to-use texture, but new releases have much improved!

They are much, much creamier without being too wet, so they didn’t transfer or migrate easily. The formula was easy (and not painful!) to use even on my waterline. The eyeliners lasted nine hours or more on me.

Psyche (959)

Chanel Psyche (959) Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($33.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a deep, red-burgundy with strong, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which built up readily to full coverage with less than a second layer. When I applied in shorter, overlapping strokes, it was opaque without having to go back through my liner.

The texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and had good glide without being overly slippery or prone to migrating as it set. Once in place, it was smudgeable for several seconds before setting all-day wear. The liner started to look a bit thinner, though still quite present, after nine and a half hours of wear.

I’m totally here for Psyche! Something tells me that this shade would really make my eye color pop. And that it lasts so well also sells me on it.
Romance is also super pretty, but I already have a few eye pencils close to this one.

I received my Chanel order last week and have paired Psyche with the Warm Memories quad from the spring/summer collection. This deep, rich mahogany shade is bound to be a green or hazel-eyed person’s best friend. I like that Chanel’s Stylo Yeux has a bit of smudge time before setting because I prefer a softer looking line at the base of my lashes and always use a fine brush to soften the line after applying.

I love both! Psyche is so similar to Melt Burnish in my stash though. I have two close enough dupes to Romance (The Tilbury and the Zoeva). I do like this formula as it has really good staying power on my waterline. Pencils are a strange weakness of mine particularly in this colour group.

I really liked the Romance one and purchased directly from Chanel as none of the stores here have it yet.
Always really like the Chanel stylo waterproo eyeliners and own a number of them.

Both are really tempting, but I have both Melt dupes, and Melt Roselense (pencil liner), which looks like an even closer dupe than Prissy… NYX Oxblood may also be a possible alternative to Psyche, as well as Melt 818.
