Lancome Chris & Tell

This name should sound familiar; the Lancome L’Absolu Rouge lipstick was just recently a giveaway item. This Pout-a-Porter shade was a collaboration with designer Chris Benz. Availability was super limited — you could only buy the shade from Saks and the Lancome boutiques (and there are probably just a few of them left out there).

Chris and Tell is a really bright coral pink. Like all L’Absolu Rouges, it’s $29 and contains a hydrating skincare ingredient (which gives it a bit of a skincare scent, but feels wonderful). As Lina from The Beauty Lookbook noted, the shade can accentuate peeliness, but hopefully all our lips will be less peely as we transition into spring and summer.

    I love this color, but it’s so sold out. Karla, are there any dupes you could recommend?

  • Miss QQ says:

    Do you know if there is a number for this shade or just a name? I love the colour!

  • JenniferZ says:

    Is this color anything like NARS Niagara? Thanks!

  • Kessa Thea says:

    Chanel Libertine can be a good dupe but then again Chris and Tell is still my choice. :-)

  • KarlaSugar says:

    Good call, JenniferZ. NARS Niagara is close:

    Kessa’s right, too, Libertine is also pink-coral, but it’s more pink, less screamingly bright, and has a bit of a shimmer, I believe.

    You might also look at MAC’s Fresh Salmon:

    Chanel Rouge Coco in Egerie looks pretty similar too…

  • Victoria says:

    This colour is amazing, but i can’t get it in Russia, so can you tell if Bobbi Brown Calypso Coral is simila? Thank’s

  • KarlaSugar says:

    It is similar, Victoria. The C&T might be a bit brighter and more pink; the Pot Rouge might be a bit more orange/coral, but they’re close.
