Yesterday, we took on the first half of Chantecaille’s Brilliant Glosses, luxurious, unscented, non-sticky, cushiony, comfortable lipgloss with a brush wand.
These are $28, found at Chantecaille counters or online at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bergdorf Goodman. They’re also online at the newly launched Chantecaille website, which is offering free shipping until August 12.
Folly is my only Chantecaille lipgloss to-date. Alone, it wears as a very sheer coral-pink tint on the lips, but I especially love it over Beaute Cosmetics’ stain in Neon. I definitely see Flirt (a brighter, juicy, sheer coral- or guava-pink) as my next conquest. Sweet, a shimmery cotton-candy color, first appeared this past spring, with La Baleine.
At the moment, Patina, Crystalline, and Glaze are only sold as a set — but the word at the Chantecaille counter is that they’ll be sold individually come-fall. Patina is the color of plush theater seats, a red-velvet-raspberry with a hint of shimmer. Crystalline is a beige-champagne with gold sparkles. Glaze is melon with gold sparkles.
Magic is a true, clear, cherry red.
