Chanel Nude is a moderately warm-toned, light brown with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $37.00 and contains 0.04 oz.
Chanel Nude Le Rouge Crayon de Couleurs ($37.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a soft, medium brown with warm, rosy undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on evenly, but some of the color slipped into my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, creamy, wet but not too slippery, and comfortable to wear, as it was quite hydrating. This shade lasted for three and a half hours on me.
The formula is supposed to have "rich colour in a single stroke" with a "satiny" finish. The lipstick pencil twists-up (no sharpening required), and the consistency is incredibly creamy, soft, and smooth. The coverage varied from mostly opaque to opaque, depending on the shade, and the wear time ranged between three to five hours with some shades (like the reds and fuchsias) leaving a stain behind. It was a very hydrating and comfortable formula to wear, but they're so soft that I felt like it was easy to over-apply the product when there isn't much product in each tube (0.04 oz. compared to a standard Chanel lipstick, which is 0.12 oz.). Twist-up pencils usually contain less product than a twist-up tube of lipstick, but I wish these had a little more (like 0.08 oz.) or else not quite as pricey. I didn't notice any scent or taste.
