Blossom 152 was an LE Asia Exclusive released in 2011. Fortunately, it was later released in the US as well, but only at Nordstrom (and again, it was LE).
Chanel Glossimers are my favorite lip glosses because of their texture and staying power. A lot of glosses cause a thin white line of.... gunk to form around the inside of my lips (those who have experienced the same problem will know exactly what I'm talking about). I've never experienced that issue while wearing a Glossimer.

About Me: Fair with warm yellow undertones (about an NC18 right now, only quite a bit more yellow toned). Very pigmented rosy red lips. Hazel eyes that look blue in daylight. Natural brunette currently dyed aubergine purple with a lot of deep red and copper highlights.

Color: In the Tube, Blossom 152 is a light to medium rose pink. On the lips, it is very sheer and adds only a touch of color.

Finish: In the tube, it's loaded with shimmer and tiny multicolor sparkles. The sparkles flash many different colors, but mostly silver, blue, and pink. On lips, it's only a little bit shimmery, but still very sparkly.

Texture: Like most Glossimers, Blossom feels comfortable, moisturizing, and very slightly sticky. The sparkles can only be felt on the lips if you really pay attention.

Wear Length: About 4 hours, which is average for Glossimers (my average for other lip glosses of similar texture is about 3).

Scent: Glossimers have no scent :)

Packaging: It's ok. The gloss does tend to get on the inside of the cap and around the screw top, so it can get a little bit messy, but not too bad (I've certainly seen much worse). Also, the finish wears off the gold band very quickly.

Bottom Line: Ordinarily I find sheer glosses to be boring. However, I don't feel that way about a lot of the sheer Glossimers. There's just something about the way that they sparkle.... it can only be truly appreciated in the sunlight. That being said, Chanel has made many sheer Glossimers so a lot of them do look similar on the lips. If you have other sheer cool toned glossimers with multicolor sparkles, you can probably skip this one.
