Review: Chanel Jumbo Longwear Lip Crayons

These are the Chanel Le Rouge Crayon De Couleur, or in plain English, Chanel Jumbo Longwear Lip Crayon (RM120). I received 4 lip crayons a while ago, and have been road testing them. My favourite has to be the red in No 5 Rouge. The lip crayons are the very convenient twist up pencils, and the colour of the lipstick is shown on the band at the end of the crayon, as you can see here. That is a great feature, because I can pick the right colour every time without having to open and twist up the crayon to check.

The Chanel Jumbo Longwear Lip Crayons, the ones I have anyway, are really pigmented. They apply very smoothly, and are quite slippery, but not to the point of being like a lip balm. The colours don’t bleed on the edges, but they do remain slightly slippery without setting. I don’t know if I would call these long wearing, because I do have to reapply after just coffee and a sandwich. I don’t mind reapplying my lipsticks, to be honest, and I usually remove my lipstick after each meal to reapply. I did expect my lipstick to last a cuppa, but I was left with a slight lip ring. Other than that, these jumbo crayons apply and wear beautifully especially if you have dry and lined lips. They make the lips look smoother and fuller due to the shine in the formula. Even with these strong colours, such as bold red, striking fuschia and bright coral red, the crayons are very easy to apply. Rose Prodige is the only one with tiny glitters but only noticeable as slight shimmer when worn. It’s more of an every day rosy colour with a dash of bling.

 

Chanel Jumbo Longwear Lip Crayons swatches

 

The swatches above show you the texture of the lip crayons, and below are how they look worn. Rouge and Rouge Corail look very similar. Rouge Corail is much warmer with an orange tone to it while Rouge is a blue red.

My favourite is the Rouge red, and Rouge Corail comes a close second. Which one do you prefer? Rose Prodige looks very sweet and can be worn on its own but in the photo above, when put alongside the other brights, it looks way too plain, don’t you think? Maybe I should have applied some eye liner instead of just a touch of bronze eye shadow and mascara.

If you’re looking for a very comfortable lipstick that’s easy to apply and a breeze to wear, then go have a look at these. I still wouldn’t say they are long wearing, so if you don’t mind reapplying your lipstick, then these non drying lip crayons might be what you’re missing in your handbag.

      Thank you Belly! I love those bright shades too 🙂

  • I like all the colors and they all look great on you! They sound like my kind lippie formula too!

    • Lily

      It’s so comfortable on. You have to try it!

  • I am usually the same, remove all my lipstick and reapply after a full meal. I find it icky to reapply without removing all first. I love all 4 shades on you but Rouge Corail is the one that is really calling out my name.

      LOL I know! Sometimes when I read some reviews, saying they wear the lipstick for 8 hours, I always wonder if they actually drank or ate anything. How can you not wipe your mouth after eating? LOL!

  • Ahhh just catching up with blog reading and saw you’ve tried them too! I like them. Love the creamy texture and strong colours and they look good on you!
