Chantecaille Lip Chic01

Chantecaille’s Lip Chics ($35) have long been on my radar as a must-try. This time around, I picked up Chantecaille Amour (a pretty, wearable soft pink) and Isis (a complex mauve-brown with subtle shimmer).  These soft, moisturizing sheers offer a gorgeous colors that are easily wearable everyday.  They offer a soft, amped glow that is very flattering. They are also wonderful at moisturizing imperfections in the lips, to give a youthful appearance.

 Chantecaille Amour is a  universally flattering medium rose. I find the wear time on this pretty good for a sheer–just under a medium time frame. They feel wonderful.

Chantecaille Isis might be an unusual choice, but I love mauve nudes. I had read that this color was similar to MAC’s Huggable in Rich Marron, which is a color that I backed up and use several days a week.

In my opinion, the sheerness and glow of Isis, together with the dash of red, keep the color from being too 1990’s. It looks quite polished with a nude-themed makeup look.

Here are comparison swatches with some other pretty sheer, neutrals. On the left is Chanel Rouge Allure Troublant. I’ve also compared MAC Rich Marron Huggable with Isis. As you can see, Isis is more complex. However, they are quite close in color. Overall, Chantecaille feels even more cushiony, moisturizing, and lasts a bit longer. I’ve also swatched Chanel Rouge Coco in Avant Garde.

My small experiment into the Chantecaille Lip Chic line is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. I find these “swipe and go” lipsticks very flattering in both their color and formula.

  1. Ohhh I love Isis! I have China Rose coming from Nordstrom… I’m getting a Chantecaille addiction since I got the Save the Bees Palette!

  2. Chantecaille lip chics are among my very favorite lipsticks! I love everything about them. Isis is one of the few I haven’t tried, so thanks for the pics!

  3. You said “cushiony’ and you’re right–that’s the perfect word for Lip Chics. I have and love both of these colors. Lip Chics are my second-favorite lipsticks (after Rouge G de Guerlain). They don’t last at all on my lips, but they’re so soothing and moisturizing (and smell good) that reapplying them is a pleasure, not a chore. Plus they’re great for traveling because they have a near-gloss-like shine but don’t have to go in your liquids bag.

  4. Those are both really lovely. I’d have to swatch them both since I’m N/NW 5-10!

  5. Those colors are so nice!!! I especially like Amour.

  6. Isis is beauuuutiful! I haven’t tried the lip chics yet. I did hear that the Sonia Kashuk lip sheers have a similar feeling on the lips as the lip chics.

  7. That first shade looks divine! I would love to get my hands on one of them!
