Without much fanfare — without any fanfare at all, actually — Chantecaille quietly created five more of their sheer, glossy Lip Chic lipsticks. One day there were suddenly 9 of the shiny, black-metal tubes on the counter.
The general consensus from those that love them is that the Lip Chics are wonderfully moisturizing, with a “heavy jelly” or “heavy balm” feeling that melts into your lips, keeping them soft and hydrated. The formula does contain collagen, meant to gently (and painlessly) firm the lips.
All of these shades can be applied sheerly; I applied heavily to best show color. Lip Chics are $30, and since Chantecaille does not have a website, the only place I know to buy them is at Neiman Marcus.
