Review of Chanel Pagoda Glossimer by deliah008
I love Chanel Glossimers, and I have to say the fall '05 collection is one of the best ones, in terms of Glossimers. I just had to get all 3 in the collection.
In the store, Pagoda isn't my favorite out of the three (that honor went to Sesame). But I'm quite pleased with the results on the lips. This is a blend of Blush (now discontinued) with Blizzard (sans the lavendar tones & silver frost); throw in some more red-brown tones and gold shimmer and we have Pagoda. Texture-wise, it is one of the smoother Glossimers; not gritty at all, as compared to Blizzard or Unity. Colorwise, it's a bit on the red side. Perfect for pigmented lips (gives a YLBB look). I don't know how often I'd reach for this, but probably more when falls comes full-bloom (funny how summer just started in June and fall collections start coming out).
If you love/collect glosses, this is definitely a must-have. Not a bad choice for a first-time Chanel buyer either. It's very wearable and not a loud color.
