Chanel Le Rouge in Merry Rose - Swatches and Review

Chanel Le Rouge in Merry Rose

I have been looking for the perfect “my lips but better” lipstick for ages and I finally found it right before the holidays. Chanel’s Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue Ultra Wear Lipcolor in Merry Rose is, quite simply, the perfect shade. It is a nude pink that adds warmth to your face but still matches everything. Plus, it lasts forever, even through eating, and has a lovely shine that makes your whole face look awake and happy.

Chanel’s Merry Rose comes in a double sided applicator. One side has the long wear lipcolor, and the other side is a gloss. I like to put on a couple layers of the lipstick, wait a minute, and then add the gloss. I then touch up with the gloss throughout the day.

Here, I paired Merry Rose with a light smokey eye, a subtle contour, and a little bit of bronzer. Plus lots of mascara. To be specific, I used on my eyes I used Urban Decay’s Naked Basics 2 for eyeshadow, Charlotte Tilbury eye kohl in Audrey to line my waterline and her black eyeliner on top, Trish McEvoy voluming mascara and Anastasia brows in taupe plus her clear gel. On the rest of my face I used my beloved Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation and Magic concealer, her Filmstar bronze and Glow, the Tom Ford Soleil bronzer and as a finishing touch the Glow and Cheek blush which adds the prettiest subtle pink glow (truly, this blush glows).

I’ve used Chanel’s Merry Rose with a nude eye, a smokey eye, a cat eye and every shade of pink blush and or bronzer and it matches everything. Plus it matches every outfit. It’s one of those shades that if you could only wear one lip color for the rest of your life Merry Rose would be it.

Finally, I like that the Le Rouge formula lasts all day but isn’t drying, especially if you exfoliate your lips at night. I’m not the best at reapplying lipstick throughout the day, so a long wear shade is perfect for me.
