An instant icon, this luxurious lipstick formula combines lustrous colour, sensational comfort and fabulous wear. Purely Chanel: the subtly etched, world-renowned logo, and an elegant click-open case that provides a most glamorous effect when applying colour.

The packaging of this is definitely different. A sleek glossy black case which is one piece. To open, press the gold base - a push-button mechanism - click to open, click to close.

- Colour: A brownish red with a very fine shimmer - goes on exactly as in the swatch. You can layer it for a deeper colour.

 - Texture:  As a Makeupalley member puts it, the texture is the perfect balance of matte, glossy, creamy, and satin!  In short, everything good from everywhere :D. It is perhaps a little less moisturizing than the Chanel Rouge Hydrabase line.
- No feathering, settling into creases - NOTHING - and I have used it without a liner and still looks great.
- You can easily go from day to night with the same lipstick, with just layering it on deeper.
- Does wear off with eating/drinking.
- Very faintly perfumed - but if you are sensitive to smells, check at the counter.

Cost - $32.00 ( was Rs. 1800 - Available in Bangalore: Lifestyle Stores, Koramangala and Richmond Road)
