Lively Rosewood (5)
Chanel Lively Rosewood (5) No. 1 de Chanel Lip & Cheek Balm ($45.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, pinky-plum with warmer undertones and a soft sheen. It had a dewier, glossier finish on my lips and a more satin-like sheen (not fully set or dried down, but it seemed to have a semi-set to it) on my cheeks.
The consistency was lightweight, despite some tackiness, and spreadable whether on cheeks or on lips. It had semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and wasn’t prone to lifting up my base. I was surprised at how even and smooth the product looked applied to my lips. This shade wore well for eight hours on my cheeks and three hours on my lips (and was hydrating).

The formula is supposed to have a “nourishing, buttery formula” that “melts into skin” and add a “touch of colour.” The brand recommended dabbing it on lips and/or cheeks, though it could be used with precise brushes if desired. I found fingertips worked well for both methods, though as a lip product, I could see a standalone lip brush being more ideal (I feel like I needed more product on my lips than for my cheeks).
The texture was like a thicker gel with noticeable tackiness, so I was very surprised that the product applied well on top of foundation and wasn’t prone to lifting it up. On my cheeks, it dried down noticeably, though not fully, so it had a satiny sheen but did not appear as dewy as initially applied. On my lips, it retained more shine for longer, but it wasn’t particularly long-wearing as a lip product.
It had sheer to semi-sheer, buildable pigmentation, which was most readily achieved on my lips. The light tackiness and thickness of the product seemed to help it work well on my lips as a lot of tinted lip balms are often so thin that they are prone to settling into my lip lines or catching on texture imperfections.
They lasted seven to eight hours as a cheek product before migrating a bit, and they lasted two to four hours as a lip product and were hydrating to wear.
