In addition to the rather lovely eyeshadow duo (reviewed here) Chantecaille released two new Lip Chics for their Summer collection.
Moroccan Rose is a pink and Mandarin is an orange (£30 each).
Both shades have a brightness about them and a gloss/shine finish.
Pigment is good, though I tend to wear these sheered out. Mandarin is
the type of colour I normally avoid, however used lightly its
surprisingly wearable, if your normally scared of orange this is a good
one to try.

I initially thought Moroccan Rose might be similar to Bourbon Rose
however Bourbon Rose is more of a rosy pink.

Though I tend towards more lightweight lipsticks I do really like the
more balm like Lip Chic formula. It glides on, applying colour evenly
without sinking into lip lines. The balm like qualities make these great
for dryness and they feel super moisturising. The only aspects that I am
not overly infused about is the short wear time and very slight sticky
texture, thinking about it they are similar to the MAC
huggables formula, though the Chantecaille definitely make my lips feel
more moisturised during and after wear.
I really like both colours, they are perfect for that pop of juicy
colour that enlivens your complexion, great for days you feel a bit drab.
I bought these from Space.NK
