Chanel Mystery Glossimer Lipgloss
Chanel Mystery Glossimer Lipgloss ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “fresh rosewood.” It’s a soft pink-peach with a creamy finish. MAC Persistent Peach is similar but a smidgen brighter. MAC So Vain is darker, pinker. Dior Pink Veil is pinker, shimmery. YSL Pure Watermelon is more orange. Benefit Spiked Punch is similar but shimmery. Chanel Caprice is a bit pinker and shimmery.
Mystery is non-sticky, lightweight, and very comfortable to wear. The consistency isn’t too thick or too thin, and for a creamy gloss it settles very little into the lip lines–certainly not noticeable from a regular viewing distance. It also applied rather evenly. When I tested it out, it lasted for four hours, which was good. This gloss has a high-shine finish that gives lips a fuller look (just an illusion). It’s a your-lips-but-better kind of shade with better coverage.
