So this is the review of my new Chanel Hydrating Créme Lip Colour. I've wanted to try this for a veeery long time now, so I decided to buy it last week when I had the chanse :). I've wanted to try a lipstick that gives your lips hydration and not a dry appearance. I chose between the Dior Addict Lipstick, YSL Rouge Volupté and this one from Chanel of course. I didn't really find a colour that I liked from the other two brands but I found a colour from Chanel that I luckily LOVED!
Anyway, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous! I love the tiny box that comes in the lipstick when you buy it, it looks so luxurious. And so does the packaging of the lipstick. I absolutely LOVE the black glassy design with the classic Chanel-logo on top of it, looks amazing, doesn't it??
The lipstick also comes in a very smart and luxurious packaging. I might be silly but I really love the enchased Chanel on the lipstick, looks really cool and another sign that this lipstick definitely is expensive. For me who's a genuin makeup-lover is the appearance of makeup definitely important :). I love the discreet sound the lid makes when you put it onto the again, even that sounds luxurious, lol!

On my lips, the lipstick feels soooo smooth. I can hardly feel that I'm wearing any lipstick at all, honestly. This is the colour that I've been looking for for a really long time. It's bright pink, not too pink and not too light. LOVE IT! It will look more lovely during the autumn-winter-springs's though. I personally prefer these colours for the more ''dark'' seasons. Anyway what do you think about ''13 Gardénia''? I LOVE IT!! Usually when I wear lipsticks, I use some kind of an hydrating lipstick underneath the lipstick, just because the lipstick tends to look and feel dry on my lips. With this Hydrating Créme Lip Colour from Chanel, I definitely do NOT need any hydration underneath the lipstick. It already feels super-smooth with this lipstick (which it should be, just because the word ''hydrating'' is a part of the name), which I love!
So far it's great. The packaging is amazing, it looks amazing on my lips and it feels amazing on my lips also. But how does it last? If it doesn't last for a very long time, then all of the other good things doesn't really matter anymore. I've wore it every single day since I bought it (mostly because I love the colour, but also because I've wanted to try how long it lasts on my lips), and I can tell you that it lasts for a very long time. Six hours later it basically looks exactly the same as when I first applied it. WOW! Even after eating or drinking it hasn't begun to fade.. This lipstick is DEFINITELY highly pigmented(!!!!). However, I can feel a small sence of fragrance. It smells fresh and lovely, I'd guess that the smell is some kind of berries (perhaps strawberries??).
I give this product:
