Chantecaille Lip Modern (Boysenberry)







I'm on a Chantecaille kick.

Matte lipsticks are known to be dry and if you have sensitive lips (as I do) they can be very uncomfortable to wear, which is why I ignored Chantecaille Lip Modern lipsticks for the longest time. After all, they offer enough balmier options. But eventually my curiosity got the better of me and I left the counter with the Boysenberry Lip Modern in my shopping bag. What can I say? I tried, I liked, I bought.

Lip Modern is incredibly light. It doesn't feel like I'm wearing a lip product. It simply coats, stains and stays there for hours with minimal residue on the tea cup. It actually feels soft, which is very surprising for this lipstick category. The color is dark, rich and pigmented so you must make sure to prep your lips thoroughly- exfoliate, moisturize and make sure there are no cracks, otherwise go with something more emollient. I also like to top it with various glosses, but it's not necessary, just my tendency to layer colors and experiment.

Boysenberry is a red berry color- very true to what you see in the tube. The matte texture and color intensity make this a sophisticated and elegant.

Bottom line: Perfect for a dinner date.

Chantecaille Lip Modern ($28) is available from top department stores. I bought it at Bergdorf.
