Gorgeous shimmer and a high-shine glow is delivered effortlessly to lips with just one stroke of this best-selling lipgloss. A wide range of shades, from sheer and natural to sparkling and rich, look beautiful on their own, or over your favorite Chanel lipstick. Equally beautiful: the conditioning formula's comfort and long wear.
Chanel Levres Scintillantes glossimer in Sweet Beige was released some time back - part of the Holiday 2011, I think - but was re-introduced with the recent Les Essentiels de Chanel makeup collection for fall 2012. It is a nude, almost milky pinkish beige lipgloss, and like all of the Levres Scintillantes, Sweet Beige too has shimmer mixed in. The colour is slightly darker than what my photos show, but after days of trying to get the photos right, this is the best I could come up with - sorry!
The Levres Scintillantes glosses feature doefoot applicators that make application a breeze. The formula itself is nonsticky, and while I cannot truthfully say that it replaces my lip balm, I do find these glosses extremely lip friendly and nondrying. The coverage is quite sheer, and on my pigmented lips, the color is almost nonexistent. Generally, I use a rose-mauve lipliner to even out my lip color (it's what best matches my natural lip color) and then apply this lip gloss to get a neutral/natural lip color that doesn't make me look all washed out. The shimmer in the formula is very fine, and while it's seen quite well in the tube, on my lips it almost disappears, visible only up close or under very bright sunlight.

A simple pinkish-beige color that pairs beautifully with darker eye makeup, Sweet Beige might not be the most unique shade out there, but it is very pretty. Chanel makes some of the best lipglosses, and if you are on the lookout for the perfect neutral lip, do give this a try.
