Review of Chantecaille Lipglosses by Koobie
I have been a lip gloss junkie for most of my life and Chantecaille lip gloss is like no other lip gloss I have ever tried!
I first ventured into Chantecaille glosses with trepadation - @ $ 24 for a lip gloss is a lot, plus they only come in little compacts which while being super cute are not very convenient for throwing in your jeans pocket for touch ups during the day (unless you throw a lip brush in your pocket too! - ewww lint!!)
Crystal and it is such a pretty shimmery nude color. I then bought the Les Delices palette. I was a bit nervous about this palette because I tend to like light sheer YLBB shades, and the Les Delices palette has a few very dark and opaque looking shades. After deliberating for a week between the two Chantecaille Palettes I decided tob e daring and go with the colors I would ordinarily never choose. I was not dissapointed - I mean how many subtle pink glosses does 1 girl need??
After trying these Les Delices l/g I was delighted because like my Crystal l/g they all go on so sheer and soft - not over powering or harsh.
What I find that really makes these glosses so different is they are not "wet" looking. You don't look like you smeared vaseline & glitter on your lips. Don't get me wrong - I love wet shiny glosses too but it is nice to have an alternative.
Another thing which makes Chantecaille l/g so different is they almost seem like a cross between a lipstick and gloss. I never wear lipstick - ever!
OK - these are not perfect, nothing really is. They are a bit expensive, don't last as long as i'd like and I find I do still need to use a balm underneath to keep my lips from getting dry. I have very dry skin though.
I don't want to cause anyone to go broke for these but please do try them! Next bad day you have go out and buy yourself a little Chantecaille treat!
