Inspired by the elegance of Gabrielle Chanel, Collection Révélation makes lip gloss the essential accessory for summer. A fresh palette of best-sellling Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimers ($29.50) presents captivating options. New and beloved shades offer a sophisticated spectrum of color, from simply sheer Ocean Shimmer to intense yet versatile Crushed Cherry. An array of finishes - subtle sheen to sparkly metallic - complements every look with ease.
The colors in Collection Révélation are listed below.
- Ocean Shimmer (clear shine with shimmer)
- Argonite (repromoted clear shine with pink shimmer)
- Plaisir (repromoted milky rose)
- Seashell (repromoted delicate peach)
- Mica (repromoted pink with shimmer)
- Amour (repromoted extreme sparkle pink-coral)
- Rose Sauvage (shimmering rosewood)
- Daydream (intense metallic fushsia)
- Savage Grace (deep shimmering garnet)
- Crushed Cherry (deep burgundy)
Daydream (second down) is gorgeous. I really don't know why Chanel described it as an intense metallic fushsia. Metallic/shimmering? Yes. Fuschsia? No, I would reserve that description for Savage Grace. That leaves me wondering if I confused the descriptions from the training sheets, so I went back and checked. No matter what shade Chanel calls it, I would call it a shimmering, warm pink - one of the prettiest shades I've seen lately. I'm sure this is one of the two I will purchase.
Crushed Cherry, described as a deep burgundy, is more of a cherry red to my eye. It's so pigmented that wearing it is like wearing lipstick, not gloss. A bit less shimmering than the others, it's a perfect red gloss for those who are comfy with red lips.
Ocean Shimmer is a clear shimmer that adds iridescence to the lips without color. It's a great topper, but I don't think I need it. Which shades look like must-have's to you?
