Click continued for swatches. This was the second Glossimer I purchased. I bought it after seeing it on FOTD by a beautiful MUAer and was not disappointed. I typically go for the more of a nude lip but pink color of this attracted me. Its a perfect pigmented pink color thats not too bubblegummy color. Sexy but also sophisticated. My skin tone ranges from Chanel Soft Bisque 2.5 to Natural 4.5 (I think that MAC NC25 to NC45). Anyways I find this looks better on me when I am tan vs. when I am pale. Like all glossimers, nice pigmentation, moisture, and not very sticky compared to others (MAC). Worth the $.
So many times I'll buy a pink lip gloss and it gives my lips a sheer, frosty color that's barely pink. Magnifique is NOT that gloss. It's got the perfect amount of pigment so when I apply it... it actually looks pink. But not too pink. The perfect amount of pink. To me it's almost a lipstick/lip gloss hybrid. More color than a gloss, but less than a lippy. It is exactly what I wanted. It looks very bright in the tube, but it's the perfect pink on your lips. I love this gloss.
I purchased Magnifique based on the reviews I read here and when I first took it out of the box I was thinking this isn't going to work for me. When I put it on I was completely surprised. It is a beautiful mid toned pink with subtle golden shimmer. It looks awesome on and not as bright as it does in the tube. I think it would look good on almost anyone and if you are ever by a chanel counter I would give this one a try.
This is an absolutely gorgeous color. At first, I was nervous this color would be too cool for me, but It is a bright cool pink color with some gold shimmer in it, so I can see this color on both a warm toned or cool toned person. In fact, I often use this color to warm up colors that wash me out. The color shows up on the first application, but as a very sheer color, but you can keep layering it to get a more opaque look. I agree with the reviewer below, it can look innocent or polished. The texture is classic glossimer formula (hydrating and smooth), and it has no metallic finish to it like some do. The shimmer is noticeable, but it is no obvious nor does it feel gritty. I would definitely repurchase this color.
I love the pink color on my fair skin. It's a gorgeous pink! I'm so thankful it's not sticky either. I have to go back and buy more Magnifique before they decide to discontinue it for whatever reason! I can't wear any other lipgloss after trying Glossimers!!!
I bought this one on impulse, together with a Chanel Precision Lip Pencil in Tulip. They were temporarily misplaced (I admit it, at the bottom of a handbag at the bottom of the closet!). And now that we've all been reunited I am thrilled.
This lipgloss looks pretty girly and pinky in the tube, but it can go any way you like. Innocent and sweet, or polished and professional, or pouty and sexy. The color requires a teeny bit of layering to show up. I usually wear a light layer, just enough for gloss, a hint of color, and some sparkle.
As others have noted, it feels divine on the lips. Sticky enough to last a surprisingly long time, without actually feeling sticky. Chanel's worked miracles with the texture of this one.
Of course it's expensive. But you get a lot more product that you would from some other manufacturers. And you can't beat pulling this elegant gloss out of your purse when you know people will notice!
I contacted an MUA'r who has this used item up for swap a few times, used, and never got a response. So, I went to ebay and bought one Brand new, pretty cheap. Although I really like the color, the SA at Nordstrom's said it has been discontinued. So I will use this one up, and find another chanel glossimer pink that I like. I would repurchase, but I wont start hunting this item down. EDIT: Sorry this is not discontinued, I misunderstood the SA at Nordie's. They were all out at the counter, but I can still get online.
My favorite Glossimer. I fall in love everytime when I apply this medium rosy pink with golden flecked shimmer gloss. I love the fact that Chanel Glossimers are never sticky and have a tremendous amount of staying power. It always looks luscious with any lipstick or lipliner I pair it with. A definite HG and staple to my lipgloss wardrobe.
This is going to be my new HG pink gloss. This is exactly what I wanted from Tinsley Pink by Dior. It has real pigmentation, a high gloss finish and long wear. I don't always love the sparkles that come in some glossimers, but this time I don't mind. They seem to make it last a little longer. There is no real visible shimmer in this. I don't need to wear this over a l/s to get full coverage, and it wears away nicely.
Such a pretty glossimer that is so extremely pretty that it has "disappeared" from my bathroom cabinet after 2 different parties. Haha. That tells you something! This color is a pretty neutral pink that works well on my pale, NW15 skin. Next tube I get will be tied around my wrist. Haha.
Pricey, but worth it!
