I’ve never been one for trying red lip products. I would swatch and try some on, but nothing ever looked like it was a good fit. Not to mention that a good majority of red lipsticks are matte, and my lips get too drying for those types of lip formulas. While attending a beauty event at Neiman Marcus I stopped by the Chantecaille counter and saw some of their new products, including the Lip Chic in Red Juniper.
I’ve reviewed the Lip Chic in the past and absolutely loved them so I knew I would like the formula. It was just a matter of whether or not this shade of red was going to look good on me. I pretty much had a huge smile on my face almost immediately because I could tell that this was a shade of red that was suitable for my skin type and wasn’t too bold for my comfort zone.
If you’re never tried these lip products, you really are missing out. The price is a bit high at $36, but they go on so smoothly, and feel so buttery soft. Not only do my lips look amazing while wearing it, they feel so soft and moisturized. This is crucial for someone like myself who tends to suffer from dry lips. They’re a bit of a hybrid in that they offer that rich, even coverage you get with a lipstick, but also offer the high-shine you get after applying a lip gloss. It does mention that it has added collagen to give your lips a boost, but I don’t think I’ve noticed this at all. But I do have fuller lips as it is.
I’m not going to lie, when I first saw the price of these I almost walked away. This coming from someone who paid $50 for a Tom Ford lipstick. I thought it was too expensive, especially for a color that I might not wear every day.
Let me tell you, I’m so glad I purchased it. I love this color, and formula lipstick. You’re not just paying for a name or packaging, you’re getting a lipstick that’s high in quality. This is something that I always look for with makeup. If the quality is there and won’t cause me to miss any of my bill payments, I’ll buy the product.
If you want to try a more luxury brand, and even want to give a red lip a go than stop by Neiman Marcus or Nordstrom and check out Red Juniper. Have fun shopping for new makeup!
