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.
Color: In the tube, Bagatelle is a neutral (leaning towards warm) light to medium candy pink. It's an absolutely beautiful shade. It's somewhere between sheer and opaque and it looks fantastic with my skin tone (fair with slightly yellow undertones).
Apparently, this is an enigmatic shade.... some makeup bloggers claim that it's a warm pink, some claim that it's neutral, and some claim that it's cool and blue based. I nearly didn't purchase because the first review I read described it as having a blue base, but now I'm very happy that I ignored that review. Personally, I don't see how ANYONE could possibly see a blue base in this. Due to the warm yellow tones in my skin, even slight blue or violet tones become apparent when applied. As mentioned above, I would describe it as neutral leaning towards warm. For reference, Rose Dilemma 144 is considerably cooler toned.
Finish: In the tube, this appears to have a fair amount of multicolor sparkles. For the most part, the sparkles flash gold with the occasional green and pink. On the lips, it has a half cream / half jelly appearance with very subtle sparkles.
Wear Length: Average for Glossimers.... about 4 hrs without eating/drinking (my average for glosses of similar texture is 2-3).
Texture: Like most Glossimers, Bagatelle is very slightly sticky. Unfortunately though, the sparkles in this shade can definitely be felt on the lips. This is one of the very few glossimers I've ever seen afflicted by this issue. I've felt worse, but this is pretty GRITTY. I'm not the type to be bothered by it though (unless it's really bad), and I love this shade so much that I decided to ignore it in the rating.
Bottom Line: I recommend this lip gloss to anyone who loves pink and doesn't mind that gritty feeling. I'm pretty sure it's LE, but I plan on purchasing backups while it's still available.... continued >>
