What is the correct syntax for chcon

The chcon command is giving me a invalid argument error using the syntax below.
I am using the variable ($USER_MAGIC_FOLDER_$) in the install anywhere project but I have tested it with the literal path to the lib fille and get the same error.
I have also removed the first "/" in the syntax.
What am I doing wrong?

chcon -c -v -R -u system_u -r object_r -t lib_t /$USER_MAGIC_FOLDER_2$/lib/
chcon -t texrel_shlib_t /$USER_MAGIC_FOLDER_2$/lib/

Can you post the error that you are getting. It will help alot.

also that variable does not look correct.
echo $USER_MAGIC_FOLDER_2 and see what you get. I dont think there should be a $ at the end.
