Chanel Sky Line Le Vernis

Chanel Sky Line Le Vernis ($30.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as “pale and pearlescent, nearly metallic… the beauty of blue.” It’s a pale sky blue with a hint of periwinkle and threads of metallic silver-white. I couldn’t think of anything that would dupe this. Cult Nails Princess is more of a powder blue. Zoya Skylar is much darker. I haven’t reviewed it yet, but I can see that Essie Blue Rhapsody is bluer, darker.  If you have a closer dupe, I’d love to hear about it!

Cle de Peau Red Abundance is very comparable. Guerlain Genna is rather similar.

Chanel Intrigue Glossimer

Chanel Intrigue Glossimer Lipgloss

Chanel Intrigue Glossimer ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “red-brown.” It’s a medium-dark, subdued red–it’s warm, brown-hued, and shimmer-less. MAC Pret-a-Papier is a bit redder and has lots of shimmer. Chanel Braise has shimmer and is slightly more plum. MAC Looks Like Sin is similar. MAC Whoops is brighter, more coral.

Intrigue is very comfortable to wear, because the consistency isn’t too thick or too thin, so it feels lightweight on lips but still has a cushion-y feel.  The texture is non-sticky as well.  This shade wore for four hours on me with semi-opaque color coverage, minimal settling into lip lines, and even color overall.  It has a delightfully high-shine finish that gives lips an illusion of fullness.
