Chanel RA Extrait de Gloss in Merveille and Attirance | Spring 2013

Ever since my first Extrait de Gloss, I know it’s become my favorite formula. So this time around I didn’t even think twice about buying the two glosses that came with the Chanel Spring 2013 Collection.

According to Nordstrom

CHANEL reveals the next generation of lip gloss—with colour so rich and shine so intense it could only be inspired by the iconic lipstick, Rouge Allure. Bold colour combines with the smoothest, silkiest gel texture for luxurious wear and deeply dramatic effect. Lips feel comfortable—never sticky or tacky—and look luminous, full and sensuous for hours. The double-sided, flocked applicator is beveled to deliver ultra-precise definition.

I like it because…

  • the formula is sticky but not overly so, sticky enough so it lasts longer on the lips. It is mildly hydrating on my lips.
  • it lasts longer than most lip gloss I own
  • the shades in this collection is perfect for spring and summer
  • the packaging is so classically chic

I wish…

  • the tube is not so heavy

I highly recommend this gloss as well as the two shades in this collection. It will be perfect from spring to summer.

Let’s take a look…

Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace Collection – Soft Nudes for Holiday 2012

Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace Collection - Soft Nudes

Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace Collection – Soft Nudes

Here’s the Soft Nudes version of Laura Mercier’s Mini Lip Glace Collection…hop on over HERE to read about the Rich Berries version of this collection.

Quick thoughts on Laura Mercier’s Lip Glace formula in general. They are not tacky nor slippery. They have just the right degree of “stickiness” to make it stick to your lips. They provide shine  but not over the top glossy which I like. It has a slight vanilla/marshmallow scent but it disappears a few seconds after application. The colors in this set is right up my alley. Let’s check them out…

I got mine at Nordstrom for $48. It’s no longer available at Nordstrom’s website and is out of stock at Laura Mercier’s website but do check around counters as I’ve seen them at Nordstrom and Macy’s over the weekend.

Happy New Year everyone!
