Chantecaille Lip Chics -Tea Rose, China Rose, Bourbon Rose

The Chantecaille Lip Chic formulation is one of my all time favourites.  Sheer - like so many of the new lipstick collections have been this year - but hugely moisturising, extremely balm-like, and just pigmented enough to give you a wearable and polished look.  I love them, and the funky pewter packaging, and own three, all from the rose shades.

Here they are, Tea Rose, China Rose, and Bourbon Rose:

Tea Rose, is a lovely muted rosy mauve, for me a My Lips But Better shade, which I use with stronger makeup looks, so I don't look like death warmed up by using more "traditional" nude lip shades.  China Rose is a little more red, and is a tad warmer, almost coral-ish in wear.  And Bourbon Rose is a lovely pink, good for giving a gentle flush of colour to your lips, without totally taking over your face.

Here's how they swatch, with and without flash:

Whilst it's a soft formulation, the lipsticks don't wear down all that quickly, and they're a pleasure to wear.  Yes, they're pricey, at around £29 each, but my lipstick collection wouldn't be complete without them.

 The Fine Print: I bought each of these, and have actually bought Bourbon Rose twice, the first time was a present for someone else, and I liked it so much, I had to have it for myself too.

  1. I love the Lip Chic formula too. I've had my eye on Tea Rose for a while but actually I'm now rather interested to take a look at both China Rose and Bourbon Rose. Thank you for the swatches.

  2. Ooh Tea Rose and Bourbon rose are really pretty.

  3. They look really lovely. Gorgeous shades and they look very moisturising.

  4. I might have to add China Rose to my collection... it looks so beautiful :)

  5. Beautiful colours !


  6. They look nice! I really like sheer, balm-like lipsticks, as i think they better suit my lip shape. I really like Becca ones. Have you tried them?

  7. All three are such gorgeous colours, I'd struggle to decide which one I'd want to wear! x x

  8. Chantecaille is one of my top three favorite makeup brands.
    The Violet Mascara and one of the matte lipsticks {haven't decided on the color yet}, plus the Rose compact powder are all on my list for Yulemas this year!

  9. Ive looked at this post about 4x now. Ugh why did you have to photo just makes me want one! (China Rose in particular) They all look so juicy and aghhhh NOOO!

  10. I love that Tea Rose is your MLBB shade as China Rose is mine!



Thanks, I love hearing from you!
