Two of the best lip products in the high-end beauty market nowadays, these lippies boasts a different formula that combines a lip balm and a lipstick. Possible, right? Chanel and Dior did it with a touch of class and elegance, maximizing lip color while not cutting short on moisturization.

 

ROUGE DIOR BAUME

In Diorette:

Oh that quentissential Dior lady, perfect in every way, thus the name represents. If you want bubblegum-colored lips, this is the answer. The perfect blend of light pink and light peachy red, this is the color for every woman out there. Love the lasting power on this.

In Lili:

Lili the cute and peachy color, ideal for someone with a Natalie Portman skin tone, this lippy is also perfect in every way. Might appear to be quite reddish on lighter skinned peeps, and peachy/coral to neutral in tanned skin tone. FYI, if you want that “just bitten” lips, then this is the one to look out for.

 

 

ROUGE COCO SHINE

In Boy:

Not sure why it’s called Boy, either to cover up the boy in you, or if you want to look more like a boy, a.k.a androgynous, but one thing is for sure, this is the most popular shade in Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine line. Simply because it’s an everyday neutral lippy that anyone can wear. Although, darker skin colored should be warned that this color may not show up on your skin, since it’s too neutral.

 

rouge coco shine in bonheur

 

In Bonheur:

Bon…what? whatever, this is the best for peeps with darker skin tone and not satisfied with the “Boy” color. This a normal reddish violet color that has golden shimmers and is not overpowering and not too showy. It might appear to be very dark at a glance, but definitely very light once applied. Can be worn everyday without looking like you just woke up from a party.

 

The Swatches:

VERDICT:

For the best moisturization, Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine wins, it glides effortlessly and feels like a lip balm all time. However, it doesn’t last long (maybe an hour or two) compared to Dior’s (2 to 3 hours). For the best color, go with Rouge Dior Baume, however, it is slightly not as moisturizing as Chanel’s. Tip: If you want these lippies to stay longer, put on a lip primer first, like Too Faced’s Lip Insurance to get a better grip on these rouge baumes. Caution, it might feel a little too heavy on the lips though, but it does work.
