A friend gave me Chanel’s Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue liquid lipstick with high praise for its non-drying, long lasting color. My experience with liquid lipsticks and stains has always been disappointing resulting in either spotty color or overly parched lips. That changed with Chanel’s formulation. After receiving a pale, soft pink (#57), I purchased two more colors in the same rose family with more intensity. They proved themselves worthy with a weekend full of events and barely a reapplication of color…and zero dryness. Don’t be mislead by the photos on the Chanel site if like me, you don’t like a glossy look. I just dab a tiny amount of the clear gloss on top of the pigmented base coat in the middle of my lips for a little softness and sheen.
Now I’m trying to decide on the perfect red. Ever Red #49 looks like a great option.
