Wake-up Pink (4)
Chanel Wake-up Pink (4) No. 1 de Chanel Lip & Cheek Balm ($45.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a brighter, medium coral with moderate, warm undertones–balanced between pink and and orange–paired with a satiny sheen. The consistency was lightweight, neither too thin nor too thick, and had light tackiness that seemed to melt away as the product sat on my skin or my lips.
It had semi-sheer, buildable color coverage that spread easily over my cheeks and my lips. It applied evenly on bare skin as well as over foundation as it did not lift up my base products. The lip product applied evenly to my lips, didn’t catch on lip texture, and didn’t settle visibly into my lip lines. It wore nicely for eight hours on my cheeks and three and a half hours on my lips (and was moisturizing).

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.
