Review of Chanel Pagoda Glossimer by jiney17
"Pagoda" is a very pretty, sheer berry-rose with gold shimmer. It is neutral-leaning-towards-warm (like my LLL complexion) and kicks up my natural lip color a notch or two, making for an understated, MLBB sorta look. Like all of the Glossimers, this has a smooth, gel-like texture, is moderately sticky, and has only fair lasting power (I usually have to reapply after two hours, sans eating/drinking/canoodling). It does not dry out my lips or leave behind traces of glitter (hate that) and has no taste or smell. The packaging is sufficiently weighty and elegant (Glossimers are like the Cadillac of lipglosses in this regard), but unfortunately, gloss gets pushed out of the tube each time you reinsert the wand, making the opening all gunky. You'd think for $24 they'd be able to design a lipgloss tube that didn't do that (Glossimers are the only lipgloss I've had this problem with, mind you). Expensive, but I can see this becoming a staple.
