CHANEL has a new lip product (again) and this time it’s a coloured lip balm. We love that it’s moisturising and comfortable on the lips, and we really like that it comes in a sleek white and gold tube.
Like most lip balms, this one is hydrating on lips, and of course, balmy in texture. The moisturising active ingredient is shea butter, combined with three plant waxes, which are at the heart of the Hydra Boost Complex — a signature ingredient of CHANEL’s famed ROUGE COCO line. There’s also an Olive Oleoactive, a new active ingredient that’s produced specifically for CHANEL, and derived through a patented sustainable extraction process called oleo-eco-extraction. The resulting formula is silky, and glides onto lips easily, hydrating and protecting lips the entire day.
While the balm is available in six shades, there’s also a colourless version that’s an essential in our makeup bags. The shades are inspired by the flowers that grow around La Pausa, from a deep burgundy and a fresh pink, to a powerful fuchsia. They slick on as a sheer wash of colour, and are incredibly buildable, so you can transform your lips from just a hint of colour into an intense shade, all with a semi-matte finish that’s practical to wear under face masks.
