Grenade Pepite (No. 15) Gloss Volupte ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brightened, pink-coral with gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage; noticeable, rich color but not fully opaque so the natural lip color will come through. It had some sparkle but was not over-the-top or loaded with it. It wore well for four hours. Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $29.50) is warmer. Maybelline Celestial Coral (010) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery. Chanel Reflexion (71) (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, warmer.
