Great pink red lippie color. Problem is it's very waxy and the application is terrible. Marilyn is from the Hydrabase line. Hydrates? I don't think so. Waxy, yes. So dissappointed. I know how to apply red, a bit at a time. Marilyn makes it impossible.

I've had this lipstick for several years. A Chanel SA stopped me in Macy's and said Marilyn would look good on me (I'm dark brown hair, brown eyes, Italian but lighter skin). I wear it with a natural colored lip liner and on me it's a very classic natural looking red. I have a slight tan right now and with my bronzer, it really looks beautiful. Not to mention the feel and …Read more

I read Schadenfrau's review, and I, too, had never owned a Chanel lipstick. She convinced me to try it, and boy am I ever glad that I did! I am so happy with the color and feel of this lipstick. Actually, everything that the prior reviewer, Sherina614, just wrote is right on the money. I can't thank you "Makeup Alley gals" enough for always helping me choose the perfect …Read more

An HG lippie for this girl! Thanks to the reviews here, I took a chance and purchased a tester on eBay and boy am I glad I did! A fabulously wearable "red" which I would classify as a member of the watermelon/coral family. Perfectly pretty pigmentation as is usual with Chanel lippies. This color lights up my face and brings out my blue/green eyes like no other lippie I own. Thank you …Read more

I've got to chime in with my love for this lipstick, as well as thank you all for turning me on to Chanel's Marilyn. On a downer, rainy Friday afternoon a few weeks ago, it struck me that I'm 32 years old and had never purchased a Chanel lipstick. It seems like a milestone that I missed, so I scanned the reviews here and ran over to Henri Bendel to try on this thing everyone was …Read more

I love this colour! I'm not a "red lipstick" person, but can wear this one sheer or layered for more colour. It is a true red and cheery (no blue)-- I'm usually a brown toned lip but when I wore this on Easter I loved the look and have worn it a number of times. As with all Chanel products - top quality and distinctive packaging. Cheers! chum

This is the first time I have been compelled enough to write a review about a product. This lipstick is wonderful! In fact, I was told by two people that I look gorgeous when I had it on--when does that randomly happen? I like to apply the Mryiad Glossimer over it, to give a more casual look.

I thought I was crazy when I bought this, because it is *so* not a color I'd normally wear, but I love it. I very much tend to stay in the neutral color range (taupes, browns, pinky browns and peaches), with a darker eye and nude lip, so this definitely takes me out of my comfort zone. It is very very bright at first, but after a while it tends to melt into your lips... I don't know …Read more
