Review of Chanel Glossimer by lareinarumbera
This is probably one of my HG lip gloss formulas. The formula is gel-like, cushiony, and non-sticky on the whole (sticky enough for it to last a bit, but not so watery that it disappears in 15 minutes). No weird white goop in the corners/insides of your lips after it's been on your lips for a while. I do wish sometimes they would come out with more creamy shades (but then it wouldn't be "levres scintillantes" or "sparkling lips") or toned down the sparkle factor a bit, but the sparkles are never tacky or childish looking and there are a wide range of shades for everyone. It is horrendously expensive, and the packaging quality leaves something to be desired in comparison with other Chanel lip offerings (cheap plasticky containers that look banged up after a bit), but they are really great and all the colors are so nuanced and beautiful. I docked 1 lippie because the sparkles stay glued to your lips after the gloss has worn off and kind of migrates onto other things, but other than that, it is a near-perfect gloss formula for me - silky, moisturizing, and UNSCENTED/UNFLAVORED. If you love shimmering, complex shades of gloss that are equally beautiful alone or over other colors, give these a try.
For your reference I am NW20ish, neutral undertones, black hair and brown eyes. I loved: Wild Rose (MLBB mauvey-pink-rose with silver - used up like 2 tubes already), Astral (cellophane pink), Venus (hot pink with gold), Pink Pulsion (jellyish/translucent fuchsia-raspberry), Mica (ballet pink with blue, green, white gold and pink sparkles), Maline (white gold in a clear base) and Bagatelle (medium/bubblegum pink with gold)
