Chanel Glossimers ($28.50 for 0.19 oz.) include two new shades for fall (although, the website also lists Giggle, it’s not on Chanel’s official fall release). Pampille is a sheer pink, while Braise is a reddish brown.
MAC Semi-Precious Cremesheen Glass ($18.50 for 0.08 oz.) includes five, limited edition shades: Geo Pink (strawberry pink), Looks Like Sin (mid-tone reddish plum), Natural Flare (light caramel nude), Pure Magnificence (light grey pink), and Richly Revered (deep brown plum).
Available online only for U.S./Canada on June 21st, here are photos and swatches of the five lipglasses included in the collection. Each will retail for $14.50 and be available for a limited time. For official information, please check out the launch post. I am not reviewing or rating this collection because I do not feel it would be the right thing to do.
Strawberry is a softened pink-red with subtle, warm yellow undertones and flecks of silver and pink micro-glitter. The formula is soft and smooth, and while it’s a little thick and nearly non-sticky, it’s comfortable to wear. I was able to get semi-opaque color with ltitle effort, and there was definitely a high-shine finish. This gloss wore about three hours on me, which is particularly noteworthy given that it isn’t a sticky gloss. I wouldn’t call it a moisturizing lipgloss, but it didn’t dry out my lips either.
MAC Surf Baby Lipglases ($15.50 for 0.17 oz.) include four shades: Girl on Board (pale white gold), Good Lovin’ (soft peachy pink), Krazy Kahuna (warm mid-tone brown), and Strange Potion (soft coral pink).
NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil ($24.00 for 0.09 oz.) was a new product, released for spring, as a twist on NARS’ Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. It’s a glossy, moisturizing jumbo-sized pencil available in six “glazed” shades. The range includes: Baroque (raspberry sorbet), Club Mix (sheer grape), Frivolous (iridescent seashell pink), Happy Days (pink coral infused with gold shimmer), abd Hopi (honey beige), and New Lover (gold infused strawberry pink).
