Chanel Eden (437) Levres Scintillantes Glossimer
Chanel Eden (437) Levres Scintillantes Glossimer ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “translucent raspberry.” It’s a shimmer-free pink-tinted gloss. On lips, it gave my lips a slightly pinker tint (and looked very much like Evolee once applied, but there’s a decrease in the warmth added). There is a number of sheer glosses that are similar to this. I wish Chanel would consider releasing a better variety in intensity/opacity within a collection.
Again, sheer glosses are one person’s best friend and another’s nightmare. At least with Eden, Chanel made it clear what to expect: not just sheer but a translucent kind of color. The effect of this gloss is primarily adding a glossy, high-shine finish to lips, rather than adding sparkle or color. My lips looked pinker and less washed-out with this applied, but there’s no arguing about how subtle it is. It was rather difficult to assess how long this gloss lasted on me, but I noticed that at least half the glossiness had disappeared after two hours. There was some subtle sheen that I could still detect after three hours, but by four hours, my lips felt naked. The texture is slightly thin, non-sticky, and comfortable to wear. I wore this back-to-back, and it was lightly hydrating during that time.
