The Spring Season: Chanel Mythic Lipstick

Chanel Mythic Rouge Allure Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft nude-beige with subtle champagne shimmer and a rather glossy sheen. I love that it looks like a sheer, lightweight nude, but it’s actually nearly opaque on my lips. I do think those with more pigmented lips may find their natural lip color adds a bit of rosiness to the overall look, though. Rouge Allure Lipsticks carry a very, very low-level scent of roses–I almost wasn’t sure if there was a scent, but since I did go, “Roses?” initially, I’m going to stick with that. Rouge Allures feel incredibly light on lips, less like the average lipstick, and they’re creamy enough to glide on evenly but not so creamy that they slip-slide all over the place.

The Spring Season: Guerlain Brit Rouge G de Brilliant Lipstick

You get enough color pay off, but it’s sheer enough that those with more pigmented lips will find more variation in how these shades look on their lips. Brit lasts around three or four hours on me, as compared to the original Rouge G line-up that lasts an average of five hours.

The Spring Season: Cle de Peau #106 Extra Silky Lipstick

Cle de Peau #106 Extra Silky Lipstick ($52.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a creamy softened medium blue-pink with a glossy finish and nearly imperceptible shimmer. Cle de peau’s Extra Silky Lipsticks are absolutely a dream to wear–they’re smooth, soft, creamy, and moisturizing. They don’t steal a single drop of moisture while you wear them, and despite the creaminess and slip of these lipsticks, I still get a good four hours of wear. It has a naturally glossy finish, so they’re easy to wear alone.
