Vital Beige (3) Chanel Vital Beige (3) No. 1 de Chanel Lip & Cheek Balm ($45.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a satiny sheen.

ColourPop Lunar New Year Lip Colors Reviews & Swatches

It's Grr Time ColourPop It’s Grr Time Fresh Kiss Lip Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright, cherry red with cooler undertones and a jelly-like, cream finish. There was slight translucency to the finish, which gave it a plumper, smoother, and juicier end result, and while it wasn’t “opaque” it wasn’t lacking in coverage either. The consistency was lightweight, spreadable, and felt more like a gloss than a liquid lipstick. It lasted ...

Chanel Brun Roussi Blush Lumiere Review & Swatches

Brun Roussi Chanel Brun Roussi Blush Lumiere ($70.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a darker, reddish-copper with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a firmer, moderately-dense texture that felt like a gel-powder hybrid to me, which meant that it had to be used with a denser brush to get an even pickup of color (due to the surface being firmer), but the color released readily and deposited well onto bare skin. It had opaque color ...

It had medium color coverage, which was somewhat buildable, paired with a more velvety, lightweight, and thin texture that was prone to catching on imperfections and settling into lip lines, so you’ll want to exfoliate prior to wearing at a minimum. It lasted for two and a...
