Chanel Rouge Double Intensite Ultra Wear Lip Colour Review

This is a reader review of Chanel Rouge Double Intensite Ultra Wear. Thanks Larev for the review!

I have had a long standing obsession with lip gloss. I have owned glosses and lipsticks in every brand possible. Although I have found quite a couple of lip glosses that I love, I struggle with keeping them on my lips. I have very full lips and it seems like the immediately absorb any color I put on them and go back to their dull selves.

Chanel Long Wear Lip Gloss

When Covergirl debuted their longwearing lip glosses, I decided to give them a try. I was very disappointed to find that they dried out my lips and only patches of the color were left on my lips after a few hours. I became weary of anything that said “long wearing” or promised to stay on for more than 8 hours. That was until I came across the Chanel Rouge Double Intensite Ultra Wear Lip at the cosmetics counter at Nordstrom.

I was on my way to work event and decided to dab on some lip gloss at the counter before I headed to my event. Five hours later, I was delightfully surprised that my lip gloss looked intact. I immediately went online and ordered this Chanel Gloss in Violet Sapphire and Rose Topaz. I have since then gone through so many tubes of this product.

The Good

  • It lasts for hours! This product is seriously longwearing. On one particular night that I fell asleep without removing my makeup, I woke up with beautiful pink lips.
  • It doesn’t get patchy. There are many long wear products out there, but, the one that I had tried gets patchy after a few hours. The color on the Chanel lip gloss stays nice and even.
  • You get matte color and a gloss in one. This cuts down on the amount of products I need to carry since I usually always layer lipstick and gloss. This product is both in one tube.
  • It’s kiss proof. My boyfriend loves this lip gloss because it does not leave stains on his cheeks if I give him a peck.
  • The colors are absolutely beautiful. The Violet Sapphire is my favorite color because it is a dark red that looks great for more dressed up events.

The Bad

  • Although it is not as drying as other products, it can still cause your lips to dry out a bit.
  • It is extremely long wearing. I sometimes struggle to remove it when I am washing off my makeup. I have found that rubbing it with baby oil or witch hazel removes it more effectively than soap and water.


  • Apply a lip moisturizer, such as Peter Thomas Roth’s Lips to Die For, to keep lips from drying.
  • Use the gloss over any other lipstick to make it last longer.
  • If you are going for a matte look, skip applying the clear gloss over the lip color.

Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour Swatch

As part of my holiday shopping I bought myself a Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Lipstick in the shade Rouge Orage. Chanel Rouge Coco is lovely stuff, and it better be at $30! It feels light and moist and it wears very well. Rouge Orage is a pretty berry rose shade that works quite well for me and fits in with most of my makeup looks (I tend to wear fairly neutral makeup). On the whole, Chanel Rouge Coco tends to get rave reviews.  I find it worth the extra cost.
