Chantecaille Brilliant Gloss in Charm: Review & Swatches

Purchased by me & Affiliate Links
I chose the Chantecaille Brilliant Gloss in Charm because I madly love their Brilliant Gloss in Love which can be described as a pale cool pink with highly refined multidimensional shimmer. While it is a more sheer leaning gloss, it has a marvelous and complex iridescence that makes it extraordinarily gorgeous on the lips. Like Love, Charm is likewise a lovely and refined gloss, but it is the perfect sheer nude peach with highly refined multidimensional shimmer.
This formula is not in the least bit sticky or tacky, but instead it has just enough cushion to be extremely comfortable on the lips. While it has the distinct sheen of a lip gloss, it likewise has the feeling of a lip balm in its ability to soothe and moisturize the lips. It is just divine!

Here are the benefits, according to Chantecaille:
-A hydrating wand lip gloss for soft, supple, shiny lips.
-Botanical microspheres plump lips, immediately increasing the volume of the lips.
-Innovative jellified system creates long-lasting wear.
-Exceptionally soft brush will never clump.

Brilliant Gloss is made from a hydrating and enriching formula that imparts long-lasting color and brilliant shine. Safely plump lips for a perfect pout. This slick gloss also includes Green Tea extract to protect delicate skin. Brilliant Gloss is a non-sticky lip gloss with vegetal-based cross-linked sugars that naturally and safely plump lips. An innovative system of elastic polymers and shiny emollient oil creates long-lasting wear. Enhanced with green tea to protect and calm lips.
While I would see this as more of a gloss than a plumper- my lips do seem a bit more full when I wear this gloss, but it doesn't sting or tingle. This gloss is simply superb!
Despite the fact his color isn't what one might describe as unique, and it is quite sheer- it does impart a lovely touch of nude peach perfection.
For those who can't imagine spending over $30.00 for a luxury lip gloss that is quite sheer, it is the exquisite formula that truly sets this gloss apart. 
If you prefer greater pigmentation, there are 13 colors to choose from- and not all are as sheer as Charm and Love.
Ingredients: Polybutene, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Silica, Hydrogenated Styrene/Isoprene Copolymer, Propylparaben, Flavor, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Camellia Sinensis, Leaf Extract, Tetradibutyl Pentaerithrityl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Zea Mays (Corn) Oil, Dicalcium Phosphate; May Contain: Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide CI 77891, Iron Oxides (CI 77491- CI 97792- CI 77499), Carmine CI 75470, Red 6 CI 15850, Red 7 Lake CI 15850, Red 30 Lake CI 73360, Red 28 Lake CI 45410, Yellow 5 Lake CI 19140, Yellow 6 Lake CI 15985, Blue 1 Lake CI 42090, Eosine Y CI 45380. 
Overall assessment: Chantecaille Brilliant Glosses are definitely among my favorites- the formula is really lovely. As to my feelings about Charm- it's just fetching. Charmed, I'm sure!

  1. I think it's a nice and safe shade to wear!!!
    I have something like this but without the plumping effect.
    Have a wonderful day

    1. Ciao Valentina!!! It is a very easy to wear shade because it is quite sheer. I wouldn't classify it as a true lip-plumper, it is quite gentle- I would say that it makes my lips appear a bit more full, but I would consider it more of a shiny pretty gloss that is moisturizing rather than a traditional lip plumper.

      You have a beautiful day! <3
