NARS Bolero Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

NARS Bolero Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($24.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “pink cantaloupe,” while the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil formula is all about “rich pigment” delivered via a “jumbo-sized crayon” that imparts a “velvet matte finish.” It’s supposed to be long-wearing without being drying, while still being creamy. This shade has been added to NARS’ permanent range.

Chanel Gardenia Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Gardenia Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark rose pink with subtle golden micro-shimmer and shine. The color applies semi-opaque–almost covering my lip freckle but not entirely–and deposits color evenly. Like many other Rouge Cocos, the finish is shimmery and borders on frosty.

Chanel Aurore, Pensee, Pink Peony Glossimers

For summer, there are three new shades of Chanel Glossimers ($28.50 for 0.19 oz.) that are limited edition. All three are varying degrees of sheer, but in general, they are on the sheerer end of the spectrum. Glossimers are designed as a sheerer formula often recommended for layering. Though the range varies from sheerer to more opaque, these don’t seem to deliver quite as much oomph as other Glossimers–perhaps because the base color is nearly invisible or the mix of shimmers does not stand out as much.
