Chantecaille has always stood for making products that are filled with goodness, which means no parabens and definitely no sulphites. Despite the fact every Space NK shop adviser has always recommended it, this Lip Chic in Amaryllis is the first product I have bought from the range.
It has been mentioned in beauty blogs before, but I don't think Chantecaille's Lip Chic range gets the true credit it deserves. The range claims to leave your lips liking younger and fuller but without the irritation that some other lip plumping agents do. Instead, it has gained this end result by containing the sheen of a lip gloss, but the even coverage of a lipstick.
I chose Amaryllis because the glossy red looked beautiful as it rotated out of the tube. Once on the lips, the red was no where near as vibrant - instead it created a beautiful subtle crimson with heaps of shine but no stickiness.
I didn't notice my lips getting any fuller than other lipsticks, but the texture really is lovely of you want something light.
Unless you like subtle shades, Amaryllis is definitely for the Summer.
Colour Intensity: low
Finish: high shine but not sticky
Overall Rating: 4/5
