Chanel Holiday Collection 2009: Chanel Aqualumiere Sheer Colour Lipshine Review & Swatches

Chanel Aqualumiere Sheer Colour Lipshine 1

As per the Muse’s norm the first thing that captures her interest when exploring cosmetics is eyeshadow. I’m an eyeshadow kinda girl first off. Secondly, I go straight for the blush. And of course most important concealer…

After all that I normally explore glosses, base products, etc….

You know what’s last? Lipstick. I dunno why that is but it’s one of the last things that interests me. Which is why I could have overlooked Chanel Aqualumiere Sheer Colour Lipshine in Grenada if I hadn’t gotten a sample to try out!


This is my first experience with Chanel Aqualumiere Sheer Colour Lipshine and it probably won’t be my last! What an incredible formula. Lipshine indeed.

The formula is highly emollient leaving behind slick, moisturizing pigmented color with a beautiful glistening finish. Truly it’s a love. It glides on beautifully well and feels incredibly light wearing on my lips. Possibly one of the best lipsticks I’ve had the pleasure of using and believe you me I’ve been through plenty.

Aside from the formula the shade Grenada is just as beautiful. I’m terrible at shade descriptions but here goes…it has a faint glisten of subtle golden shimmer combined with a yummy coral, a base of slightly pink and red, combined to create this beautiful cross between pink and coral. It’s a gorgeous shade and quite unique from anything I own in my current collection.

Overall, if you’re looking for a hydrating lipstick with a beautiful color payoff and a lighter, barely there formula I highly suggest Chanel Aqualumiere Sheer Colour Lipshines. Total Muse Approval for purchase.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    That lipshine gives you an adorable bunch of color on your lips. Have you tried the Chanel Glossimers? They’re pretty fantastic, too.

    Muse, the color looks great on you! I myself am a huge lipstick fan, and Chanel is one of my fave brands, too, so I am really loving this one. And I like the fact that is is sheer yet still has the color of a lipstick. The best of both worlds!

      hey bonnie thanks doll! 🙂 you’re too kind. I love that it’s sheer yet pigmented 😀 really a nice one! I tend to lean towards eyeshadow first and foremost…I like lipstick alot more since starting my site but I’m still very mucha gloss girl myself 🙂
