Chanel Carmin Le Rouge Crayon de Couleurs ($37.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium red with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly on the lips. The consistency was creamy, soft, and comfortable to wear, though it sat better on the lips than most shades in the range (it appeared to plump up my lip lines). This shade stayed on well for five and a half hours, left a reddish stain behind, and felt moisturizing.
