Chanel Lancome Lipstick

Parallel Universe: Lancome Chris & Tell and Chanel Libertine

February 6, 2010

As a follow-through on my earlier post regarding Lancome’s Chris & Tell, here is a swatch comparison with Chanel’s Rouge Allure in Libertine ($30):

As you can see, Libertine is more shimmery; Chris & Tell is more creamy with more pink.  Nonetheless, if you are unable to locate Chris & Tell, Libertine is a nice option.

    I’ve seen and tried both colors and ended up purchasing Libertine. Because it is sheer, it lets the color of my lips show through which makes it a soft pinkish coral on me. Chris & Tell is much more opaque and gave me a Day Glo look which is not very flattering on me or most other people.

      Thanks Eileen–I’m really not sure that I would have gone to the trouble of hunting down Chris & Tell if I’d realized it was this close to Libertine. I really like the Rouge Allure formula, and it’s just much easier to find. I noticed that Lina over at The Beauty Look Book did a review today too.

    Amy,
    Waiting for my Chris & Tell in the mail, I was on the waiting list @ Saks and they called last week. I really hope it’s not too bright as ppl have been reporting.

      Hi Cindy–It’s a “high fashion” coral but not over the top at least on me (I’m NC15/Chanel Cameo). It’s more opaque/bright than some but I found it was a pretty, brightening color. Enjoy it!! 🙂

    I like Chris & Tell over the Chanel…though both colours are stunning!
