Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer - Envolee ($29.50)

Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer Envolee is part of the Summer 2103 makeup collection - L'Ete de Papillon de Chanel.  The collection draws inspiration from the bright and vibrant hues of a butterflies wings, and most of the products in this makeup collection are quite bright, summery, and pigmented.  I bought two of the lipglosses - Envolee and Eden - both quite cheery bright in the tubes but very sheer when swatched/used.  Envolee is a bright coral in the tube that translates to a barely there tint on swatches.  There is fine golden shimmer scattered throughout, but as with a lot of Chanel glosses, this just adds an extra bit of glossiness and isn't really that obvious on the lips.

As might be obvious in the photo above, Chanel Envolee is just too sheer to make a difference on my darker/unevenly pigmented lips (I did cheat a bit and evened out my lips ever so slightly with a bit of lipstick).  The Chanel lipgloss formula is amazing as always and my lips feel fabulous whenever I use this, almost like a really good lip balm.  Unfortunately, the coverage/pigmentation is barely more than that of a lip balm.  I am not really trashing this lipgloss.  It's a bit of a personal preference, and there are people who love sheer glosses, and this would definitely give a teeny wash of color on clear lips.  For me, though, there is no point in buying something this sheer.  I have been using Envolee quite a bit, always layered over a peach or coral lipstick/liner, but I definitely won't miss this when it gets over :)

  5. thanks so much this is why I love reading your reviews you are so honest, I thought this looked great in the tube but after swatching it it was so sheer there was no way I could justify buying this even though I am a Chanel make up lover I try to be honest to myself and reading that you think the same helps alot to control myself ha, ha!

  8. I bought this as it looked similar to Chanel Calypso from 2012 - totally doesn't! But I actually like how sheer it is. I'm a NW43/45 and feel like this gives a good shiny nude look to my lips- perfect for work when I don't want to look too made up.

  9. I actually like that it's sheer. Gives a great, shiny nude look for my NW43 skin, I might be in the minority but I absolutely love it.
