L'Ete Papillon de Chanel Summer 2013 Collection - Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lip Shine in Pygmalion

Pygmalion ($34) is one of two limited-edition Rouge Coco Shines, part of the L'Ete Papillon de Chanel Summer 2013 Makeup Collection. Pygmalion, looks like a bright, coral red in the tube, but goes on a little more pink on my lips. The color looks juicy & fresh with just the right hint of color for a sheer lipstick.

The packaging is simple, yet gorgeous. There's a slight hint of a floral scent from the lipstick that dissipates quickly. As for the color, Pygmalion is just my kinda color - I would wear it all through the year since it is just so effortless and easy. I don't have a problem with the sheerness of it either. In fact, I prefer sheer, glossy lipsticks over full coverage lipsticks any day. The formula is neither too hydrating, nor drying. I have pretty dry lips to start with and since there's a certain slip to the lipstick, I skipped a lip balm, but it did cling onto certain dry areas of my lips, so I'd recommend exfoliating well before. Like with any other sheer lipstick/lip shine, I got just over a couple of hours wear from this one. Although sheer, I was surprised to see that Pygmalion left behind a soft stain on my pigmented lips.

Pygmalion may not be the most unique color out there (see comparisons below), but it sure is gorgeous. I love the light weight feel and the comfortable texture of this one. It is limited edition and definitely worth a pick up from the collection!
