Chanel Lilas Baume Essentiel ($45.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a translucent, pinkish-lavender with neutral-to-cool undertones and a dewy, lightly pearlized sheen. In my experience, this formula really works best as a highlighter or lip balm, as it has no staying power as an eye product (it is marketed as a multi-tasking formula!).
- Sheer coverage (as marketed)
- Balmy, emollient, spreadable
- Applied fairly evenly but best with a brush to avoid lifting base products
- Lasted ~6 hours as a cheek product, ~2 hours as a lip balm, almost no longevity as an eye product
