I love how Exces is pigmented-but-sheer. Actually, when you first dab it on, it’s VERY pigmented, but as you spread it over your lips, it takes on the translucence you see in the photo.
Extrait de Gloss is stickier than I remember other Chanel glosses being. It also has a classic “makeup” scent (floral?). I can smell it when I bring the applicator to my lips, but not at all once the gloss is on.Â Extrait de Gloss also has that new flocked wedge applicator (instead of a regular doe’s foot, but it works about the same).
