Le Rouge À Porter promises to be more hydrating, like a balm. I expected a formula like the Chanel Rouge Coco shines. As you can see the packaging is stunning. Very elegant and luxurious with the black, real leather case. It is similar to the normal Le Rouge but longer and thinner. I only have a limited edition Le Rouge to compare the size. I wasn't really a fan of the formula so I didn't buy more.
The packaging says Flush For Lips and that's the perfect way to describe this lipstick. The colour looks very intense in the tube but that's not how it will look on your lips. As you can see on the photo above, the colour is buildable though. Left is just one swipe and right is a couple of swipes.
To be honest, I'm not super impressed by this lipstick. I'm happy about the colour and I like that it can be applied as a 'flush' or more intense. It feels comfortable on my lips but I like the Chanel Rouge Coco Shines more. This lipstick is hydrating and creamy but not for long. The balmy effect goes into my lips after a few minutes, leaving them just stained. And even though it doesn't feel uncomfortable, I like to really feel the balmy effect.
I think this is a nice lipstick for daily use but I reapplied it a couple of times during the day to keep the balmy feeling. If you don't reapply, it lasts about 4 hours. After a drink or a snack you will definitely need to reapply.
Maybe this review is getting a bit confusing haha. If you're in doubt about buying it, I think you should. It is a very nice lipstick that comes in nice shades. And I'm really thinking about buying a nude shade because these lipsticks are a good everyday lippie to have in your bag. I love the packaging and the colour intensity and that you can build the intensity. They just need to improve the formula a bit.
Also, if you use this lipstick multiple times per day it will be empty before you know it I think. It contains 2.2g but because I apply multiple layers, multiple times a day it will be gone before I realize it haha.
I hope this review was a bit helpful. If you bought one (or more) too, let me know your impressions!
