You know how it works: a makeup collection won’t come together with some pieces that attract less attention, but help the other pieces stand out. In that sense, Chanel Envolée Lèvres Scintillantes is the perfect supporting actress. What with all the sparkle and color on our lids, it is easier to keep the lips a little more toned-down with something that offers a hint of color and some sparkle. Envolée fits the bill!
In the tube, Chanel Envolée Lèvres Scintillantes looks like a coral with golden sparkle. As you will see later, it is more peachy in the swatch.
Here is my best attempt to show you all the pretty shimmer, though in reality it always looks more stunning!
Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes is an unscented, non-sticky, and comfortable-to-wear formula. Since Envolée doesn’t pack too much pigment, it is mostly the shine and sparkle that you will see on the lips. It applies smoothly, and since it is not a milky color, it doesn’t sink into lip lines!
Here is how Envolée swatches. Left: one pass. Right: built up.
You have seen Envolée on me several times.

When worn alone, Envolée adds just a hint of color, and a lot of shine and sparkle to my lips. I love how it layers over many lipsticks, as the glossy sheen is incredible!
Bottom line: I wouldn’t say Chanel Envolée Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer is a must-have for anyone. However, if you like the formula, and you’re on the market for a sheer, sparkling peachy coral gloss, it could be the one for you!
What do you say? Right up your alley or do you fancy more pigment?
