I'm not usually one for lipgloss and after purchasing so many that have gone to waste over the years I made a conscious decision to stop buying them. Well that was until I found myself at the Chanel counter on payday last week and I just knew I had to make the exception!
Jalousie instantly jumped out at me. It is a gorgeous hot raspberry shade. It's undeniably a bright pink but it also has a red undertone to it. I think this shade will be perfect for both a fresh summer look and a more bold winter look.
As you can see from the swatch, it's incredibly pigmented and almost opaque in just one swipe, something which I believe to be incredibly rare with a lipgloss. Whilst Jalousie will look fab over any pink lipstick, this is definitely a gloss that can pack enough punch on its own.
Here is a photo of me wearing it with just one thin layer. I have been wearing this to work a lot lately and find it not to overpowering at all for the office. On a night out I would definitely amp it up though.
I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend you to check it out in store, I definitely think Jalousie is a shade to splurge on if you like hot pink lips.
What do you think of Jalousie? Are you a lipstick or gloss kind of person?
