Merveille ("marvel"), described as a 'Lilac Rosewood' color, is part of Chanel's Spring 2013 Printemps Precieux de Chanel. While I've tried (and loved) the Chanel Glossimer lip glosses, this is my first foray into the world of the Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss--and so far, I must say, I'm impressed!
Merveille is a gorgeous rose color, with definite hints of plum. The texture feels neither light, nor thick on my lips and best of all, it is not in the least bit sticky! The color has fantastic pigmentation, with microshimmer throughout (this really shows up in flash photography to gorgeous effect) but it does not look the least bit glittery on the lips. And I cannot feel any grit in the texture on my lips.
Chanel's packaging is chic as ever, but the black does show fingerprints very easily. The curve of the applicator makes it fit to the lips, making application a breeze. In these photos I am wearing two layers, but I could have easily left it at one.
