I picked up this Chantecaille Lip Chic as part of a bundle on Ebay. I was very excited to try it as I had heard good things about the Lip Chic formula. I wasn't disappointed. This feels just like a balm on the lips, it's very comfortable and the moisturising feel lasted a long time on the lips.
The look and pigmentation is somewhere between a tinted lipbalm and a coloured lipgloss. That is to say, it's sheer but definitely adds colour to the lips. This particular colour, Zinnia, is a watermelon pink with very fine shimmer. I think it's quite a summery colour and would work well with quite minimal makeup in my opinion.
Although the feel last well on the lips, I'm not sure how long the colour lasts. On one occasion when I looked in the mirror I got the distinct impression that the colour had moved over my lip line. As much as I'd like to suggest it looked like I'd been eating berries in a seductive manner, it was a bit more Barabara Cartland-esque than I care to admit. I only spotted this the once so I'm hopeful that it was a one off, I will make sure I face check more regularly next time!
I'm interested to try more of these, particularly because of the lovely texture but at £27 I would have to be in a splurge mood. It certainly hasn't dampened my interest in those Sea Turtles....
