Product Sponsored by IMBB
I have been craving for a Chanel lipstick for a long time. When I got the chance to buy a product sponsored by IMBB, I chose a beauty from Chanel called “Mélodieuse.” Let me tell you straight out, I am so happy with this lipstick. It is everything that I expected and more.
The next generation of ROUGE ALLURE dresses lips with unmistakable attitude. A new formula with concentrated, ultra-thin pigments offers radically intense, long-wearing colour with full coverage and a satin finish. Leaves lips supple and protected with lasting comfort.

My Experience with Chanel Mélodieuse 136 Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour:
Packaging: The packaging of this lipstick is classy and luxurious. You have to take it in your hand to feel it. The outer packaging consists of a glossy black box packaging with all the details written on it. The lipstick comes in a glossy black rectangular case. The lock system of this Chanel lipstick is different from any other lipstick that I have ever owned.
The lipstick is attached to a golden tube which is housed in the black case. You have to click the bottom of the lipstick to bring the gold casing out and press it back to close it. Isn’t it unique? Also, it is extremely travel friendly. On the gold casing, there is the beautiful and renowned Chanel logo. The name of the brand is also engraved on the lipstick tube.
Chanel Mélodieuse 136 is described as a bright coral red. It is a beautiful pinkish coral. Mélodieuse instantly livens up my face and adds a subtle glow to it. It is not one of those “bright-in-your-face” corals, but a subtle coral. I love the shade. It is so wearable on all occasions. With Mélodieuse, you do not have to wait for a party to wear your favourite coral shade.
The texture of this lipstick is a dream to work with, creamy and smooth. It glides on ever so smoothly on the lips, no tugging no pulling, no mam. It does not bleed, neither does it settle into fine lines. It does cling to dry patches, but then, which lipstick doesn’t? Here comes the part I love about it, the lipstick transfers so very little that I am amazed.
It is hydrating and will keep your lips supple, so you need not apply lip balm underneath it. There is shine when the lipstick is initially applied, but it settles into a slightly creamy matte finish after a little while.
The pigmentation of Mélodieuse is good. It provides medium coverage in one swipe, but can be built up easily. Three to four swipes are needed to get full coverage on the lips, but the formula is so good, you won’t mind applying the layers. Even with multiple layers, it feels extremely light on the lips.
Mélodieuse outlasted itself in terms of staying power. I felt since the formula is creamy, it won’t last long and will transfer a lot. But it did neither of the things. It transferred very little. It also lasted for around 4-5 hours with mini meals and drinks. It also survived a full meal with slight fading from the middle portion of the lips. Eventually, it fades uniformly leaving a gorgeous coral stain on the lips.
