Make-Up: Replacement for DISCONTINUED Chanel Brick

CHANEL "INDICE BRIQUE" (BRICK) 
SELENA'S FAVE LIPSTICK

Selena 1971 - 1995
I can't count the times I have seen a die-hard Selena fan post on social media how they would LOVE to find a replacement lipstick for the late Selena's favorite CHANEL Brick (long discontinued, over 15 years I believe.) Well after responding on Instagram to many Selena fans that Elizabeth Arden makes the same exact shade AND in the same name, they went nuts: Ceramide Ultra Lipstick $22.50 in "Brick" (a light, golden brown.) **NOTE: I purchased my Chanel brick years ago, guard it well, so no, it is not for sale.**

How do I compare the shades, since I have the actual Chanel Brick that Selena wore? They're the exact same color! Of course I go easy on my Chanel, as once it runs out - I'M DOOMED! I simply LOVE Elizabeth Arden's Ceramide Ultra lipsticks, as the color lasts and my lips plump (which I don't need) and are ultra hydrated even long after I remove my lipstick.

Here's a TRUE swatch comparison - Top Lip: CHANEL, Bottom Lip: Elizabeth Arden Brick. You be the judge! *For more fab beauty and fashion pics, go to my Instagram @Evcurlgurl

    1. Can't say WHO, but a good pal & rep who had a stash when they announced it was being discontinued. She purchased the remaining stock ;)

    2. My goodness you're so lucky! I've been DYING to get my hands on that lipstick! But I'm most definitely going to go for this Elizabeth Arden one! So excited! Thank you!!!

  2. Is the Chanel Brick the color in the compacts?

    1. Yes @Lipstick Love Affair. The black compacts are indeed the Chanel.

  3. Ok I ask because I didn't know the lip color was in compact form when I have heard people talk about it. Is one side like a liquid lipstick and the other a lipgloss? I actually have the Elizabeth Arden Brick. Very pretty. I don't love the color on me alone, only with a darker lip pencil. I guess it was better suited for Selena's tone. I also find it hard to figure out what to do with the rest of my face when I wear it and I am a MUA's lol

    1. ^_^ Yes, the dry (left side) is the "liner" and the right-side is the gloss. LOVE IT to pieces.

    2. Elf makes the same shade as the now discontinued brick lipstick. I have the old brick and I compared it to the Elf lipstick and it is the exact same color!!! If you really want it, you can find it at any Ulta store

      Delete
    3. Regarding the ELF lipstick replacement, I tried it and it is NOT an exact "dupe", trust me (didn't like it.) I tested 50 lip shades for the exact match, and that is Elizabeth Arden's BRICK. I STILL have the original Chanel Brick (2 actually) that Selena used and swatch tested them all against it. Wearing it today on the 20th Anniversary of her passing! R.I.P #Selena #20Years

  11. i wanted ask why would you not sell a sample to a company or chanel?
    Theres other people that would love to have it as a own collection
    no matter what the end you will still be the only one with the actual one .

    1. Thanks for your comment, but why would I sell something that is as precious as this? I purchased it because I WAS a Selena fan long before her death (I was 18 years old at the the time of her death in 1995) and I love having it as part of MY collection, even wear it sometimes. No need to "sell a sample" as the EA Brick is the EXACT formula and duplicate, believe me. Bottom line: unfortunately it is not for sale.

  13. hey i have a question. do you think the selena como la flor compares because if not ill just invest in the brick by elizabeth arden. thank you

    ReplyDelete
  14. Como La Flor is an absolute, must-have part of the MAC Selena collection (which, hey, I made myself made sure to have two of each lipstick, aside from the entire MAC collection), but it is more of a cherry red (amplified/shiny) in comparison. "Brick" was definitely more of a matte/mute brown shade. You can see in Selena's video "Donde Quiera Que Estes", a perfect example of how brick looked in daylight, as well as other publicized pictures where her lips were not a "bright red" shade. I love all her lip-looks, but prefer "Amor Prohibido", a nude shade from the #MACSelena collection, to be honest. ~Ev

  15. Hi, I have a question. I went on the elizabeth arden website but the color "brick" its not showing up. Also, I see that there are two different colors when I searched online. Is it brick #02 or brick #6? Thank you

    ReplyDelete

    1. Catherine, it's quite possible that it has sold out (no surprise). It is Brick 02, which you can see in one of the gifs where I am holding the lipstick (picture is right about the pic of me wearing it.)

  16. Thank you soo much for all the helpful information. I also am seeking a Brick Red lipstick because of my skin tone warm with yellow undertones and I was told Brick Red would be my best bet in a red lipstick. I also checked out the Elizabeth Arden website and it isn't even mentioned. I wonder if it is D/C'd. Maybe I will go to a store and see what they have. Maybe they will know if it is D/C'd. Thanks agin for your effort you went through with all of the information. Merry Christmas!!
