Review: Chanel Le Rouge Crayon De Couleur Jumbo Longwear Lip Crayon in ‘No. 7 Fuchsia’.

Chanel Le Rouge Crayon De Couleur Jumbo Longwear Lip Crayon in 'No. 7 Fuchsia'.

Oh, look. Another lip crayon in my collection. I’m excited, are you?

 

THE BACKSTORY: This was a very generous present from my mother, back in February. Thank you, Maa! These were released with their Spring 2017 collection, I believe.

THE PRODUCT: It comes packaged like your average lip crayon – it is retractable, has a colour band that indicates which shade the product is and the cap has the Chanel logo. It is also rather sleek for a “jumbo lip crayon”. The tip of the crayon is a lot more precise than your average lip crayon.

 

I’m truly impressed by the formula. I’ve tried several lip crayons in my time as a beauty lover and whenever they have a comfortable, glossy finish, they tend to have a sheer but somewhat build-able formula.

 

That’s not the case here. This lip crayon has amazing pigmentation, is opaque and somehow has a gorgeous glossy finish. It has a lovely creamy consistency that draws without tugging on the lips or emphasizing lip-lines. It is very comfortable on the lips.

 

Despite being so creamy and having a glossy finish, it surprisingly lasts for a long time. Hmm, let me give you an example here. I went out to eat with my brother and it withstood all the noodles and soup we had. Of course, it didn’t look anything like how it did when I initially applied it. It’s just that it leaves a nice stain behind and fades gracefully.

 

Oh, it makes a lovely cream blush too, if you’re interested.

SWATCH AND SHADES AVAILABLE: This line has 12 shades for you to choose from, ranging from lovely muted pinks to bright, bold reds.

 

‘No. 7 Fuchsia’ is an interesting colour. I typically love fuchsias and would even go as far as to say that it is my signature colour. However, this fuchsia isn’t something I can smack on in the morning and call it a day. What I mean is, I think it looks better when you have a more prim and made-up face.

PRICE AND QUANTITY: $37 for 1.2 grams of product (retails for 2900 INR in my country).

 

AVAILABILITY: Chanel counters, Chanel Official, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus etc.

 

Overall, I really like it and my winning streak with Chanel continues. Would I pay 2900 INR for another colour? HELL NO. Sorry, Chanel. I think I would get 4 Mamonde Lip Crayons for the same price.

        Pros

        • It is really creamy, smooth and applies without any tugging.
        • It is quite nourishing. The glossy finish makes the lips look better too.
        • It is pigmented and opaque.
        • It is quite long-wearing and fades gracefully.
        • It can be used as a cream blusher.

        Cons

        • The price is a little steep. You're basically paying for the name. That's how it is with these luxury brands anyway.
