Chanel is rewriting the beauty news under the helm of Lucia Pica, the brand’s Global Creative Make-up and Colour Designer, and these lipstick crayons are their latest, playful addition. These are for the lipstick averse, combining the easy precision application of a lip pencil with the high-pigment of the Chanel Le Rouge lipsticks that we know and love. Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur is Chanel’s latest lip offering and by jove it’s dazzling, shiny and leaves lips looking juicy and moisturised. In eight shades the “Nude” and “Rose Violine” are the most natural for lips that look flushed, like a heightened version of lips. And we can’t wait to wear the “Rouge Corail” and “Framboise” on hot summery afternoons, while the “Cassis” and “Rouge” shades are the chicest offerings – perfect for evenings. The twistable pencil shape means that they truly are a doddle to apply, however shaky the hand and however abruptly the tube jolts to a halt.

Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur costs £28 each and are on sale today.
