I was happy to see that Ulta carrying Chanel makeup. Up until a few months back Ulta carried Chanel fragrances but not makeup. I went and ordered the new Chanel No 1 De Chanel Red Camellia Revitalizing Lip And Cheek Balm from the Ulta.com.
Normally multi-use products like this one either work on my lips or cheeks, but not both. So I was curious to see if this would work on both lips and cheeks. Ulta website says this is ” A multi-use lip and cheek balm enriched with Red Camellia Oil. The nourishing, buttery formula melts into skin while adding a touch of colour. Lips appear vibrant and plump.”
Packaging Of The No 1 De Chanel Red Camellia Revitalizing Lip And Cheek Balm
This product comes in a glass tub and the black lid is made of plastic. The lid has the double C's Chanel logo on top. Each product is packaged in an environmentally sound packaging for a reduced carbon footprint.
Formula Of The No 1 De Chanel Red Camellia Revitalizing Lip And Cheek Balm
At the heart of the No 1 DE CHANEL line is the Red Camellia flower, whose revitalizing powers and extraordinary energy give it perennial youth. Red Camellia Oil delivers softness and helps maintain skin's barrier function. This has a buttery texture that melts into your skin.
My Experience With The No 1 De Chanel Red Camellia Revitalizing Lip And Cheek Balm
I was really excited to try out the Chanel No 1 De Chanel Red Camellia Revitalizing Lip And Cheek Balm. The shade I purchased is 5 Lively Rosewood. Lively Rosewood is a plumy pink shade. It feels glossy on my lips. This is a very pigmented, very expensive lip balm. Also it stayed for about 3 hours after which it noticeably faded. Love this hydrating, beautiful color on my lips.
On my cheeks it does not set fully. The formula has a translucent quality to it. The finish on the cheeks is not matte, nor glowy and falls somewhere in between. On application, this first feels sticky and then becomes more satin like as it sets. But it never sets completely, if that makes sense. I wore it with minimal makeup and it did alright on the cheeks. But over foundation, I felt it moves the product around. So I prefer this on no-makeup makeup looks. I also experienced fading with this product on my cheeks. But that could be because I have combination skin.
Perfect for a makeup minimalist. I prefer this product on my lips, not so much on my cheeks. So I have mixed feelings about this.
- Very pigmented and hydrating on the lips
- Perfect for someone who loves no-makeup makeup looks
- Works better on the cheeks when you have minimal makeup on
- Does not dry completely
Where To Buy
What are you thoughts about multi use products? For me I feel they work either on lips or cheeks but not both. Have a nice day and thank you for stopping by.
