Chanel Lipliner: Lilirose

I admit I'm a total sucker when it comes to some of the makeup artist-created looks I see online or in magazines. I like to read the list of products used, and inevitably it makes me want to go out and purchase any product I might not already have, even though I might have similar (and probably less expensive) colors in my stash that would create the very same look...When I was trying to decide whether or not to finally buy Chanel's Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle recently, I stopped by Chanel's website to take a look at it on the model and noticed the lipliner the makeup artist used was "Lilirose." Now, this is a color I hadn't ever seen before at my local Chanel counter and I couldn't find any swatches online, but I couldn't resist and went ahead and ordered it unseen. I received it today and am happy to say that it is a perfect match and works better than anything else I've tried with it so far. I hope I will get more use out of Mademoiselle (a color I am decidedly not all that fond of, but now that I've spent the $30 bucks I'm gonna get my money's worth!). Lilirose blends with it so well, there is no discernible line, just a more defined and polished look.

  1. Ooh. This is a good match. Madamoiselle turned orange on me and i decided no lip liner would change that..but now I'm thinking I need Rose Tawny for some other lipsticks I have!

  2. Yes, I had the same problem with Mademoiselle! I might just try mixing it with other colors to get some use out of it! :)

  3. I just purchased Mademoiselle lipstick (which I LUV!) but can't find lilirose lip liner anywhere online. Out of the liners you own, which one would you say is a doable dupe? Thanks!

    1. Hi Yolanda,

      Chanel's Aqua Crayon #10 Rosey is the most similar of the liners in my collection. I found Lilirose listed for sale on beautyencounter.com. I've never purchased anything from that site though, so can't speak for their customer service, etc.

      Good luck! :)
