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.

Buy it at Nordstrom!

L’Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss Review

L’Oreal Infallible The Lip Gloss that Never Fails

This product review is from a reader. Enjoy!

As a busy mom of three, there are many days that I do not have time to apply full make-up. No matter how pressed for time I am though, I always find a few seconds to apply my favorite lip gloss, L’Oreal Infallible 6 Hour Never Fail Lip Gloss. It is a great product at a reasonable cost, so it has now become my favorite go to beauty product.

L'Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss Review

From its appealing texture to the various shades offered, L’Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss is a great fit for everyone. It is a moisturizing lip gloss that coats your lips with a thick and smooth gloss that lasts for hours. It also has the right balance of shine that it will not overwhelm your appearance, but will accentuate your face. L’Oreal offers various shades in this lip gloss that will blend well with multiple skin tones. Whether you want to dress it up for a night out or stay casual, you will be able to find just the right shade. My favorite, Barely Nude 815, is the perfect shade for everyday wear that looks great with all colors.

L’Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss is also one of the more reasonable, long lasting lip glosses on the market. When I began searching for a new product, I compared prices per unit and was surprised to find a high quality product from L’Oreal at such a competitive price. The clear and curvy, square shape of the tube also makes it easier to utilize the entire product, unlike some other brands. The sleek design also makes it an easy product to carry on the go.

If you are in the market for a long lasting lip gloss that won’t dry your lips out, but will provide moisture and a great look for several hours, this product is true to its name. It never fails!

Revlon’s ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor –Lipstick to the Rescue

The following is a Guest/Reader review of Revlon Color-Stay Lipcolor.

Revlon’s ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor saved me from my unsuccessful search for the perfect lipstick. I wanted lipstick that I only had to apply once a day. I am a pretty simple person, but I do feel better when I have my lipstick on even if I’m not wearing other makeup. Other brands state their lipsticks have staying power of 8 or more hours, but they didn’t work for me. When I tried those other brands I found I had to reapply my lipstick often. When I apply ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor, I know it won’t wear off and that I will have it on all day even after eating or kissing my special someone. Sometimes my color is still visible the next day.

Revlon Color Stay Lip Color Review

ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor comes in a small tube that conveniently has lipstick on one side of the tube and liquid lip gloss on the other side. While I prefer a solid stick of lip gloss, this one does help keep my lips feeling moisturized after applying the lipstick which can be a little drying to the lips. There are many colors to choose from and it seems as though Revlon continues to introduce new colors from time to time.

One of the downsides to this lipstick is finding the right color. In stores where Revlon is sold, there are plastic tiles that are supposed to show you how the color will look. Unfortunately, I have found that the color tiles aren’t always accurate, nor are looking at the colors of the tubes themselves. You may end up with a color that is much lighter or darker than what you were looking for. I have now found a couple of colors that work well for me and I am so happy to apply them in the morning and forget about my lips for the rest of the day. It’s just one less thing to worry about. Love, love, love this lipstick.
