Chantecaille Lip Chic in Rose Délice and Daphne review + swatches (Spring 2013)


             For me, Chantecaille's line has always represented the epitome of 'effortless chic'. Chantecaille Spring 2013, featuring their quintessential Lip Chics, Luminous Glosses, and a new 'Save the  Sharks Palette', is certainly no exception. I've been over the moon (or perhaps more appropriately under the sea) playing with these colors all week! Today I'll be sharing my review of Chantecaille Lip Chic in Rose Délice and Chantecaille Lip Chic in Daphne.


          Chantecaille Lip Chics are among my favorite lipstick formulas; they're comfortable, emollient, and shiny. The hybrid lipstick and gloss formula delivers smooth semi-sheer color with added collagen. Their Lip Chic formula also has good lasting power for a glossy lipstick. Chantecaille Lip Chics are packaged in shiny rounded gunmetal cases with Chantecaille emblazoned on the outside and a 'C' logo within.


            Chantecaille Lip Chic in Daphne is a light pink that leans slightly peach. Chantecaille Lip Chic in Rose Délice is a bright red pink. (Rose Délice is the color that Olivia Chantecaille is wearing in the Chantecaille Spring 2013 promotional photos). It's also worth noting that each Lip Chic has a corresponding Luminous Gloss color (Framboise and Pink Melon), both of which I'll review soon!


            I've made a few comparison swatches below to give you a better idea of the colors in Chantecaille Lip Chic in Daphne and Rose Délice. Chantecaille Lip Chic in Sunrise (Spring 2012) is more coral/peach toned than Daphne. NARS Mayflower lipstick is a little darker and more strawberry toned, while Daphne is more pure pink.  You can see how Chantecaille Rose Délice is more of a red-pink when compared to other bright pinks. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Anime (reviewed here) is a hotter pink, while Too Faced Fuschia Shock (reviewed here) is more fuschia toned, as per its namesake!


         Bottom line: I'm enamored with both Chantecaille Lip Chics in Rose Délice and Daphne ($35 for .07oz.). The formula and colors are wonderful, as one would expect from Chantecaille Lip Chics. With one bright pink and one light pink, I'm set for spring! The Chantecaille Spring 2013 collection is available at Chantecaille online as well as select department stores. Thanks for reading! Have tried Chantecaille Lip Chics? What pieces are you loving from Chantecaille Spring 2013? Which of the two colors (Rose Délice or Daphne) do you prefer?

Love, Dovey.

P.S Stay tuned, there's more Chantecaille Spring 2013 to come!

  2. Totally off topic, but I still can't get over how neutral NARS Mayflower looks on you! For me it ends up being a rather bold pink. It's always amazing what varying skin tones will do to a shade.

    1. Hi Alison, that is interesting! It does look more strawberry on my lips though, especially since they're a bit pigmented. On one of my friend it looks more nude.

  6. These are both stunning! Thanks for the comparison swatches.

    Chantecaille is a brand I really have to give a go sometime soon. Everything you swatch of theirs is absolutely gorgeous.

    1. Hi Kate, Thanks! It's fun to hear all the love for Rose Délice, since I'm a more Daphne person myself. Sounds like a great Valentine's day gift :)

  11. Love how sheer they look.

  12. Lip Chic's are among my favourite lipstick formulas too! They feel so comfortable, and the range of shades available are beautiful. They both look like pretty shades, but Rose Delice looks like it would probably show up more on my pigmented lips. Looking forward to your gloss reviews, Dovey! :)

  13. Chantecaille!! <3 love them, such an underrated brand still. I am definitely leaning more towards Rose Délice. Daphne looks interesting as well though, I have to try it and see how it will look on me. I spotted sharks in the bagground ;) can't wait for swatches <3 / Claire

  14. I haven't dipped my toes into the Chantecaille pool yet. I think I'm afraid there won't be any turning back once I do! However, Rose Delice is sorely tempting me! That looks just perfect for Spring!

  17. Dovey, do you know if these are permanent? I'm kind of in love with Rose Delice now and would like to know if it'll stick around when I feel splurgy. :D
