I received a Chantecaille Violetta Lip Chic in my christmas stocking this year. The Lip Chics are glossy, but not really very sheer - they're like a lipstick with the white opaque pigment base taken out and replaced with a translucent gel-gloss base. These are very comfortable, hydrating lipsticks, although they do need to be reapplied quite frequently.
Violetta was released in Autumn 2011 with Calla Lily, and is a cool violet pink.
Applied on my lips:

Here is a swatch to compare it with Calla Lily, which is a warmer brick red shade. Calla Lily on left, Violetta on right.
The tone of Violetta reminded me of my Ilia Beauty lipstick in Arabian Knights - my full post on this is here: Ilia Beauty review. I swatched the two side by side, and Arabian Knights (left) is similar in tone, although the swatch appears sheerer than Violetta (right). This swatch of Violetta is heavier than the ones above; it's a soft lipstick and distressingly easy to smush too much on!
Although the swatch is sheerer, I find the Ilia Pure Arabian Knights to be reasonably buildable, and the effect when worn (below) is quite similar. I also find the colour of the Ilia Pure lasts longer as it gently stains the lip.
Chantecaille is available from Fenwicks and Space NK, Ilia Beauty is available from www.MiseBeauty.com and www.BeingContent.com.
