Today, I will be reviewing the Chantecaille Lipstick in the shade African Violet. Let’s get started.
Lip Stick provides an excellent definition, luxurious texture and vivid color.
Creamy colour that’s startlingly intense and incredibly comfortable.
My Experience with Chantecaille African Violet Lipstick:
The packaging of the lipstick is very neat and fuss free. The lipstick comes in a purple coloured cardboard box which bears the product related information. The lipstick tube is made up of a lightweight shiny metal which provides a mirror-like finish to the case.
The lipstick is a sheer pleasure to use on the lips. I got the shade African Violet, which is described as a berry colour with cool undertones. The lipstick is intensely pigmented and has a super soft creamy texture. Honestly, when I first applied the lipstick on my lips, it felt like a lipgloss. The lipstick bullet is ergonomically designed for providing an opaque coverage to the lips. I applied it on clean and bare lips and it still deposited 90% of the pigment in a single swipe. The lipstick has no taste or smell to it.
The staying power of this lipstick is very poor as it lasts for only 2 hours. Also, it smudges and transfers a lot onto cups and glasses. After an hour or so, the lipstick fades away completely leaving a strong stain behind. I use an oil-based makeup remover to remove this stain from my lips. I am a matte lipstick lover, so this was a big disappointment for me.
The shade African Violet has little red undertones which will look stunning on a lot of skin tones. It hydrates your lips really well, which is amazing. The lipstick is allergy tested, vegan and is free from chemicals. It also has an SPF value of 6. Overall, I feel it’s more like a deeply pigmented lip balm. You can’t skip using a lip pencil under this and make sure to blot the excess for increasing its longevity.
