Last week I reviewed the Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Intrigue and now it’s lighter cousin Mystery makes it’s way.
Mystery is a light nude pink. It’s a light warm pink and has a dustiness to it. Similar to Intrigue, the lip gloss is sheer but buildable to medium. I think the shade is a good nude lip gloss for light and medium skintones. Might wash out darker ones.
I have a comparison below but most of the nude lip glosses I have are much warmer and have brown in it like L’oreal Shine Caresse in Lolita or the Maybelline Lip Polish in Glam 14. Mystery is proper pink with no brown undertones.
It’s very smooth and even to apply. After a few minutes it sets and doesn’t slip around much. On the lips it feels feather light with no stickiness at all.
I found the wear time to be average around 3-4 hours without any major meals. It’s something you’d like to reapply!
The packaging looks really classy with the gold and black. The doe foot applicator is also easy to use. You get 6ml of product for $29.50 or around Rs. 1400.
As for dupes in terms of formula, I feel the Maybelline Colorsensational Hi Shine lip gloss range comes close in terms of the creme pigmentation and lightweight consistency.
