Review: Chantecaille China Rose Lip Chic

Chantecaille China Rose lip chic

Chantecaille China Rose lip chic ($45AUD/0.07oz) is a part of Chantecaille’s permanent line of lip chics. It is my first Chantecaille lip chic but won’t be my last. Lip chics are described as

… a revolutionary hybrid that combines the high shine and plumping effects of a gloss with the rich, even coverage of a lipstick. It goes on with an incredibly soft, lightweight texture as it helps to smooth and firm the lips. This exceptionally comfortable formula is easy to apply in an even finish that is shiny but never sticky. Lip Chic leaves lips fuller and decidedly more youthful in appearance, but never irritated.


The lip chic is in a minimalistic, sleek, dark grey metal case with a lid that closes with a sturdy click. It’s understated, simple and classy all at the same time.

China Rose is described as a

… bright and universally-wearable golden coral

On my slightly pigmented lips, China Rose is more of a rosy-pink.

It’s sheer but buildable. The texture is emollient and glides on effortlessly. It’s an amazing lipgloss/lipstick/lipbalm hybrid. When wearing this, my lips feel so smooth and lightweight. It also has a slight vanilla scent that is similar to that of MAC’s lipsticks. I get about 4 hours of wear time with China Rose which is average. My lips do look slightly fuller which is a nice thing!
