I love these. I don't understand the reviews at all. They do feel balmy slightly sticky at first but as soon as I blend they dry down completely. You can't goop them on. They aren't meant to be worn that way. No chance of hair sticking to my cheeks. They also wear at least 8 hours for me. I don't know how they apply over foundation as I don't wear it. But these look best applied lightly and blended for a natural fresh look. They are like a clear color that looks fresh like wind blow cheeks. On the lips they dry down to what looks like a satin matte lipstick. They stay on my lips and leave a slight stain. Berry boost more than others. I own them all except red camellia. The only negative for me is the price. I know I'm paying extra for the name but I love them and will use regularly so I'm okay with it. Pic is Berry boost. Applied on cheeks and lips at 7am now 3:30pm. Reapplied to lips at 12:30 pm.
I was really excited about this as I love balm/stains over matte products. I had high hopes but was really under whelmed. I purchased Vital Beige, which is a stunning color. On the lips it gives a nice flush of color, with good pigment but sheered down really nicely. I also used it on both bare skin and with foundation underneath and it only worked well on bare skin. It lifted the foundation beneath it despite me using the lightest of touch. It stayed super sticky on the skin which I really didn't like, and even an hour later it hadn't settled. The color did not last through the day, it was gone after a couple of hours.
On the lips, it performed worse. I applied it in the morning and an hour later my lips had not a single trace of color. I hadn't eaten or drank anything and the color had fully faded. It's definitely not a product that would stand up to a meal. I'd say it would work better as a topper on a lipstick to give your lips a nice sheen as opposed to a stand alone tint.
Considering how expensive this is, I really hoped it would be better, but lets face it, you're really just paying for the name. But you hope because you're paying for the name, that the quality of said product will also justify the cost. In this case, the product doesn't remotely live up to the standards most have when it comes to a brand as iconic as Chanel.
I'll keep it, but wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

This is more hydrating than some very expensive lip masks that I use which shall remain nameless. I've put it on at night before and it really locks in the moisture into the next day. This is by far my favorite lip color to use in the winter as it's the most occlusive one I have found. Even after some of the pigment fades, the occlusives and emollients seem to last. The colors are super flattering and it both looks and feels extremely luxurious on the lips. Super high quality product that for me has been worth it.
Robin from Frisco TX
Amazing color! Very saturated and gives just a nice pop of color! BEAUTIFUL!! Will purchase again once I'm out.

I have olive skin and bought "healthy pink." It literally is "healthy pink" - it makes my skin look sun kissed and warm without looking heavy or streaky. Blends easily and stays on all day long. Cute lip color, doesn't dry out lips. Perf for summer.

I purchased the color lively rosewood and i love it. I'm almost down to the end of my jar. I have medium/medium tan skin, usually wear a 2.5 or 3 neutral in Dior foundations. The color looks exactly like my natural flush, so when im a little pale i can add this plus mascara and i look so pretty. However, this on top of a full face of makeup just adds that pretty flushed look! Subtle sheen, lasts very well. I love it and will repurchase it, which is insane because i have so much makeup. I use a brush to apply since my nails are long.

I don't get other reviews. This can be a little tacky when applying to skin, but blends beautifully and doesn't feel sticky once blended in. Doesn't disrupt my Mac powder foundation at all and gives off a beautiful flush of color to cheeks and lips. I WILL say that healthy pink looks more matte and dry on lips compared to the other colors.

Best cream/gel blush i've ever used, melding with the skin creating the most natural blushed cheek, wears beautifully on the skin all day long.
LL from VA
The color is gorgeous and blends effortlessly. Goes great with the Chanel bronzer.

This is a great product. Most cheek/lip products only really work as one. I use this on both lips and cheeks and it looks great. It's tacky in the jar but doesn't stay that way once it's on your face. It looks like a natural flush, no texture! Love.
Jessica from Chicago, IL
This lip and cheek product has a nice texture and is highly pigmented. The packing is minimal and great for traveling. The only downfall is using your fingers to apply the product, which can be unsanitary.
Michelle from San Diego
that deep red shade is gorgeous both on cheek and lip. is probably flattering on most and great for evening outtings. i didn't find it sticky perhaps, in the application? i applied a small amount without digging in, to the back of my hand and then tapped on until blended. like a more luxurious selena gomez blush(which i also really love). did make my lips feel dry after a while. but the sexiness of this color is worth having moisturizing balm on hand too.
Reo from Annapolis, MD
This is the best blush on the market for that barley there makeup/ no makeup makeup looks, this product is my holy grail. I wear it everyday and as someone who is very insecure of their hyperpigmentation and acne scaring, I don't even have to wear concealer anymore because when I put this on it just even the color and everything on my face.
Dorcas from Cleveland
Love the pigment in this balm and the longevity. Great practical products to have in your purse. I always love Chanel makeup and this one is another great product.
Antoinette from Columbia MD
its the best blush on the market
Jenny from Cincinnati, OH
I love the color that blends easily on my cheeks, and looks great on my lips too. Very hydrating, blends easily. If you prefer a little more color you can add a little more. Love it. Would buy again.
Ari from California
Love these! Every color is so beautiful and last all day for me. Easy to apply and a little goes a long way! Highly recommend < 3
Sara from Eugene, OR
I line my lips first and then put this on. My default liner for this is Nars. They work PERFECT together for my skin color!! I LOVE this lip balm!!! LOVE IT!!! The color is stunning!!

I love how great this looks on cheeks & lips!
Dee from San Francisco
As a professional make up artist I am blown away with this product. It is such a long wearing cream blush and it just makes your skin looks so much better than it did before. People having problems with it probably aren't applying it correctly. I strongly suggest this product if you like cream blush!
Mar from Las Vegas
Love the packaging. The color is great and the texture is velvety
Tonyandmikesmom from Utah
I will admit I bought this to treat myself for my birthday. I love cream blushes but this is basically a lip balm texture which takes some getting used to. Lasted all day for me. Made my lips feel dry. Packaging was nice but wouldn't buy another color.
Natalie R from Florida
Loved the creamy texture felt amazing on my lips! Usually keep in my clutch and reapply when needed. A few dabs pops a little more color on my cheeks and lips. I have vital beige with blue/green eyes and it POPS my eye color!
That's what E says from Moorestown, NJ
Intense color, Chanel quality, beautiful silky application. It just doesn't last.
ABP60 from Pittsburgh, Pa
I have both the red and lively rosewood. I like the red a little more than the rosewood but I would recommend both. I have dry skin and do not find these sticky or tacky. I use them both for lips and blush. They go on smooth and creamy and last most of the day. Might try some of the other shades later.

When used as a blush add a bit of powder to hold its color on your cheeks.
