Chanel Beauté keeps introducing new, beautiful treats that I'm dying to try. The latest is a hybrid of lipstick and lip gloss called Crème Gloss Lumière ($32). It's a creamy gel-based formula intended to provide more coverage and less stickiness than a traditional lip gloss, yet it manages to gives off just as much shine and moisture as a lipstick.
The velvety color is stored in an easy-to-use makeup pen with a brush attached for even application. It's available in six shades: Plum Soufflé (berry plum), Madeleine (rosy pink), Pink Truffle (berry red), Crème Caramel (neutral brown), Petit Four (soft nude) and Crème Brulée (bright coral). And since these are all names of some of my favorite French sweets, I'm finding this quasi-gloss twice as nice.
