Chanel Levres Scintillantes #169 Jalousie: Swatches & Review
usually I take time to enjoy and examine a beauty-product before writing a post, but Chanel Levres Scintillantes #169 Jalousie is so gorgeous, that I can’t stand and share it just after few days of wearing it.
Availability: at Chanel counters since March.
Price: 29.50$ for 5.5 gr (US).
Limited edition? Yes.
Final Thoughts: it a high-quality gloss from spring collection of lip glossimers and nail polishes — Roses Ultimes de Chanel, which at first glance seemed to pale to me, but then you see this particular color — #169 Jalousie. I like the quality of the lip gloss itself. It is sick, doesn’t smell, nice to wear and lasting, even survived my lunch and few coffee breaks (you need to mind that color starts to fade away a bit each time you eat). It doesn’t dry your lips, on the contrary due to thick jelly texture and specific finish it plums your lips and make them look healthier and fuller. The color is an amazing fuchsia, i given more details and pictures further.
Please, read my review in Russian for maximum details on the product. Color detailes and images are given below.
#169 Jalousie — fuchsia + pearly shimmer (+ magenta) + glassy finish = very bright, vivid color. Though the pigment is so bright, it doesn’t give full coverage, looks like color in jelly from closer distance and like bright fuchsia glass from few steps. It’s shimmer is very delicate and eve though I generally don’t like shimmer I just can’t stand and will wear this one again and again.
More pictures than usual, because it this glossimer is so beautiful!
