Chantecaille Hydra Chic Lipstick In Aster

Chantecaille is a new brand that I have been exploring and enjoying lately. It’s not available in my city, so I usually get my husband to pick up an item from Holt Renfrew in Vancouver when he goes there for work, which is a lot lately. My hubby works for CBC as an Engineer on one of the HD Mobile trucks that televises mostly Hockey Night In Canada, and since the Vancouver Canucks are doing well that’s where he’s been working! Go Canucks!
Anyways, the last time he was there he picked up this new lipstick for me, the Chantecaille Hydra Chic Lipstick In Aster.


Chantecaille Hydra Chic Lipsticks contain papaya and orchid extracts to soften lips and also provide anti-oxidant and anti-aging protection. They also contain something called Raist which is a sugar derivative that is supposed to provide immediate hydration.

Chantecaille Hydra Chic Lipstick in Aster is a bright and pigmented raspberry pink. It’s a soft lipstick, and I find a lip brush is needed with this colour to lay down a first coat, otherwise you can really mess it up. But after that, straight from the tube works great. The texture of Chantecaille Hydra Chic Lipstick in Aster is amazing-it just seems to melt into your lips and feels very moisturizing.

Chantecaille Hydra Chic Lipsticks are supposed to give 6 hours of wear. On my parched lips I find Aster lasts almost 4 hours. I can see it lasting longer if your lips are in great shape though. Also, near the end of the wear time my lips feel a tad dry, but that happens with any lipstick for me. My lips just want to suck in all the moisture they can get!

I’m really loving the products I’ve been trying from Chantecaille. I love how every year they raise funds to sustain wildlife. Yes, they are a luxury brand, but I don’t mind paying a bit more knowing that a portion of that money is going to a great cause.

Have you ever tried anything from Chantecaille?

  • That's so sweet of your husband to get you make-up. I wonder if it is available in Calgary, but I am going to Vancouver soon because my dad lives there and I'll definitely check this brand out. But damn that 12% tax. This is such a gorgeous, glam shade. You (or your husband) do have an eye for gorgeous shades.

  • Whoa, I love that color – it's such a gorgeous pink!

  • Wow! That is so pretty! I've never tried anything from Chantecaille but, I always thought they had very classy packaging especially the eye shadows 😀

  • Love! I have one of these and love it too. Wish it wasn't so pricey 😉

  • So sweet of your husband, I'm sure he's loving his job this time of year! Beautiful color that I'd never be brave enough to wear 🙂

  • @Adorable On Your Vanity:I know the tax is killer! That's why I only ask for one thing. But do check out the line-everything I've tried so far has been lovely!@Larie: Thanks! :)@Appu: Eyeshadow is next to try!@Michelle: Agree.@Tracy D: He's a good guy. 🙂 And yes and no-the travelling gets a bit much for the old guy. 🙂

  • Ahh, no wonder you're such a hockey fan! (Well, you might have been long before you met your husband, but his involvement doesn't hurt!) Also, yay, CBC! lolI haven't tried any Chantecaille stuff yet but now you're making me serious. That's a gorgeous colour and I'm glad you're enjoying the foray into the brand. 🙂

  • @Liz: Haha-you are too funny! :)It's becoming my fave brand-so much that I'm willing to part with some NARS blushes. Btw, I have to email you which ones! I'll do that soon.

  • Haven't tried any Chantecaille but now am becoming more and more interested!

  • This lippie is like my dream-shade! It looks close to the lippie worn in the Coach Poppy ad which I've been hunting for a dupe of. Thanks for posting this!

  • @prosucthoarder: It's fast becoming my fave brand1@beautyfromanotherplanet: You're welcome! 🙂 I hope it works for you!

  • I think the Universe is trying to tell me something – I just saw a Chantecaille lipstick in Jen's latest haul, and was thinking that I want one. Reading your review made me *need* one! 🙂
