Beauty junkies are fickle. Some time ago we declared lip gloss as the way to go, and then we decided that matte lipsticks are the order of the day. Now, we take inspiration from the runway, where Chanel models strutted out with glossy lips.
Chanel gives us an array of choices for lip glosses with its latest addition to the Le Rouge range – the Collection Revelation de Chanel. Introducing 10 gorgeous shades of the Levres Scintillantes gloss, the collection offers a gloss for every girl. From a deep plum shade called Crushed Cherry, to an almost clear shade called Ocean Shimmer, the spectrum of colours and effects that it presents is the reason for my obsession. Besides the pretty appearance, the glosses are also very wearable. The subtle sheen coupled with the moisturising finish make them a must-have in the makeup pouch.
Pick what you want – be it transparent, with a hint of pearl, concentrated with pigments or shimmering with sparkle – and wear it either alone for an understated touch of colour to your lips, or on top of your favourite lipstick to create a more juicy pout.
The Levres Scintillantes glosses from the Collection Revelation de Chanel retails at S$42 each. This collection is accompanied by Taboo (S$38), a shimmering violet plum nail polish that reveals bluish red tones at its heart, depending on the reflection of the light.
