Since I got my Chantecaille Lip Chic in Zinnia in the post a week or so ago, it’s all I have been wearing on my lips. The gorgeous colour and luxurious feel of Zinnia makes it my new favourite work lippy.
Price: 30 USD from US retailers, 45AUD Australian retailers
Availability: Nordstroms (US) , Mecca Cosmetica (AUS)
Semi-sheer rose with subtle gold shimmer and a slightly glossy sheen. It doesn’t settle into lip lines at all, and actually makes your lips look like they’re in great condition.
This is by far the most moisturising lipstick I own, and the only one that feels like it adds moisture to my lips, like a balm. This means that I can wear this even on my flakey dry lip days and it will look flattering and feel incredibly comfortable.
Zinnia has a very slight tackiness to it, which stops it from sliding around your lips like some of the creamier lipsticks tend to do, and also gives it a reasonably good wear time of 2ish hours.
It has a pleasant vanilla cake type scent (similar to MAC lipsticks).
