I took my photos in full sun at the same time I photographed Brilliant Gloss in Glamour. I had expected a similar shade - particularly from the online swatch - but was thrilled with Nocturne. It's my kind of color. What did I do? I quickly went online and ordered more.
On Chantecaille's Web site, Olivia's look for the lips was created by applying Nocturne Lip Chic directly to the lips, starting in the middle and working the color outward. Then, her lips were shaped with Impression Lip Definer, drawing from the edges inward. Her lips were finished with a liberal application of Glamour Lip Gloss for added shine. That's why they look so much darker than Nocturne.
The result? One of the prettiest lips for holiday I've seen so far.
Chantecaille's Web site and Chantecaille counters where the holiday collection has arrived (call first before you leave home). I purchased mine at Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie, where you can call Jeannine Barnes, Chantecaille representative, at (202) 966-9700, extension 2289, for help. The collection is available in store and online at other Chantecialle retailers, such as Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's. This collection is definitely worth a look.
