This is for the new released version of these - I tried these out just for fun at my local Chanel counter. I was shocked at how great Ever Red looked on me, and I'm not a red lipstick person at all. Great muted red. Although these are supposed to last all day long, I can only get about 4 hours of wear tops before needing to reapply or touch up. The lipstick does come off when I eat despite what other reviewers have stated. I found the best way to get this to last is as so:- use a lipstick brush and line the lips lightly with the brush. - use the lipstick brush to apply and even coat on the inside of the lined lips- before it dries, use the doe foot to apply another layer all over. The liner helps keep the color from straying- try to keep your mouth open while it dries out, I found about 2-3 minutes or upward of 5 depending on how thick it is. - Apply the gloss once. I don't do a second application of the glossAny other clear gloss or lip oil will make this come off immediately, so the gloss that comes with it is the only one you can use. Despite the lack of longevity, its still a gorgeous color and lasts longer than most other lipsticks I own.

These are changed now to a rectangular tube and its called the "chanel le rouge duo ultra tenue". I have the merry rose color and its beautiful! Its a light pink nude beige and is perfect for my porcelain skin tone. The consistency is thin and opaque. The gloss is, glossy and comfortable! I think they improved the formula! The packaging is also sleek and wonderful, I prefer this new rectangle shape. This lasts for hours, through eating and drinking. Its easily taken off or reapplied. I love this! Oh and it smells like yummy vanilla!I used to have this in the darling pink shade in the old circular packaging...I remember not caring for it for some reason. I used it a few times and forgot about it. This new formula is MUCH better.

If longwear liquid lipsticks are too drying or too matte, you may like this. It’s packaged where one end is the pigment (with a doe foot sponge applicator) and the other end is a clear gloss (with a lip brush applicator). The color is very pigmented and has a velvety matte finish. Before I apply the color, I wipe a bit off the sponge applicator and then use a light hand. It’s very easy to build up the Intensity. The sponge applicator also makes it easy to apply around your lip line. If I make a mistake, I can usually fix it quickly before it sets. Once the clear gloss is applied over the color, you lips feel like you’re wearing a comfortable gloss that’s not too thick. I only touch up with the clear coat at lunch and before dinner. The color doesn’t budge. The only downside is that Chanel offers only 15 or so shades. I wish they had 50 shades!

For long wearing comfort, the Chanel Double Intensite fit the bill. I have the Soft Rose, which is a medium toned, grown-up rose (not overly saccharine baby pink) which adds a bit of youthful color to my moderately pigmented lips. The trick is to let the base coat dry thoroughly ( a minute or so) and then apply the crystalline gloss. The gloss gradually fades to a moist finish, it is not distractingly glossy at all.My schedule occasionally requires me to wear a lip product that lasts at least half a day, if not more. So this really fits the bill, although for most occasions, I prefer an organic natural lip product (when I don't need such long wear) - if you're interested, see my reviews of Mineral Fusion, Gabriel, Naturkosmetic ( a German line) and a couple more organic American lines. I have not yet found a long-lasting organic lipstick/gloss, I've looked at a lot, so if you have found one, let me know on the message board..Thanks!

Best lip color ever. This product is for true make-up connoisseurs, not teenage girls. It's an upper end brand make-up and it is fantastic. It is my only must have lip color. The only people who have trouble with this lip color, are people who don't know how to put it on. First you put on the color, and let it dry completely. Once it is dry you apply the gloss for moisture. It will calm down to a matte finish after awhile. The gloss is kind of required to set the color, and the color is fabulous. (If you know how to put on makeup). I read some other reviews and if the gloss ran all the way to someones chin, you have to wonder exactly how much she put on. LOL! This product has been out for years and gone through various different colors over the years. Chanel tends to discontinue colors and release new colors regularly.

There aren't a lot of reviews of these two-step lipcolors online, but the ones out there are mostly positive. So I was surprised how much I disliked this. It started flaking off in patches by midday, and I was able to remove it with water and a little rubbing. It's a shame because the colors are nicer than a lot of similar lipsticks, but not as nice as a regular lipstick -- and if it's not long-lasting what's the point? Maybe it works better if you do thin layers and wait for them to dry, but I don't want to spend half an hour putting on lipstick.

If you're looking for a stain that really stains and lasts a long time you need this! I got the color rose agate, which i think is a discontinued color now, but I love it! The stain really sinks in and the gloss really makes it pop. I got almost all day wear without having to reapply the stain. The packaging is cute, but it's a little expensive (but this is Chanel we're talking about) lol

I am reviewing the 2013/2014? reformulated product line. I have these in two shades - #39 Coral Crush and #57 Darling Pink. Coral Crush is a soft peachy coral that has more pink than orange and Darling Pink is for me, the perfect pink as it is more warm than cool, is not too pale (nude), not too red, not too bright and is just the perfect girly pink without being Barbie. I have been searching my whole life for this shade and have always struggled to find my perfect pink lip! Both shades contain very fine shimmer, but do not worry as they are very, very fine. I see this is listed as a lip gloss here on MUA but I think these are more of a liquid lipstick and are listed under such on the Chanel website. Anyway, these are some of the best lipsticks ever. I really don't know why I don't use these more often!It has a double ended applicator, a creamy stain colour on one end and a clear gloss on the other. I find that the colour applies best on lips which are not too moist or have too much lip balm on as it streaks and does not apply evenly on emollient lips. I imagine this would be drying on its own but the gloss takes care of this and keeps lips moisturised throughout wear. I was quite impressed. I would say that too much gloss ends up on the applicator so I make sure to wipe it off or otherwise it can get runny on the lips... Easy to do though. The gloss is somewhat sticky but it isn't tacky, if that makes any sense. Hair will stick to it though if caught. As for wear, these are the longest wearing lipsticks I own. I can't give you an hour count but all I can say is that these last through out drinking and eating and will last an entire day. Given that you don't eat something extremely greasy, or rub at them, apply lip balm or some do some other action that will directly remove the pigment. They are $2 more expensive than other Chanel lipsticks here in Australia, but this isn't too bad considering the price is high regardless. Apart from that, I don't really have anything negative to say except that the product is quite long in shape and may not fit into very small make up pouches/ bags. Also, this is just me guessing, but I feel like these may not work so well on mature ladies that have many lines on their lips as the texture may accentuate them. This is just my guess though I could be wrong.

I just purchased this in violet sapphire. I knew I wanted to try the lipstick, but wasn't sure which color until the saleswoman put it on her hand. I was surprised to see that "violet Sapphire" was nothing like the sparkly brown color is looked like in the bottle. The sparkle is warm, but the base is almost purplish, and the yellow and purple sort of cancel out and make a beautiful glossy neutral rose tone. I am very pleased with the color. As for permanence, the lipstick does last several hours and through eating, though greasy and oily foods will remove it sooner. It doesn't last quite as long as Cover Girl Outlast, but it also is much less drying, smells better, and comes in more beautiful colors (in my opinion). Update 4/30/2013 - This is still my favorite, and despite the high cost, I bought another one! I hope they don't discontinue my shade.Update 9/12/2014 - STILL my favorite! I just wanted to comment that violet sapphire is discontinued, but not really gone - it's just called "dazzling bronze". Love it!

This gloss is fantastic! I was introduced to it during a wedding and fell in love with the formula because it lasted through lunch, pictures, the wedding, 2 hours of post-wedding drinking & karaoke. It seriously lasts all day; I put some on around 1 pm yesterday, went shopping, ate dinner, went out for drinks and woke up this morning with some color still left on my lips!The trick is to let it sit for about a minute before you add the clear gloss (and only use a LITTLE bit of the gloss-the reviewer who said it ran down her chin obviously overdid it with the gloss) I have three shades of Double Intensite: Rose Quartz (medium pink); Rose Pearl (darker pink with gold sparkle) and Violet Sapphire (which is actually a cooler red-berry with gold sparkle-no real violet to it at all)
