Review of Chanel Magnifique Glossimer 83 by surrealreality
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.
In the tube, Magnifique is a fairly bright medium mid-tone pink with gold shimmer. On my lips, it has pretty decent pigmentation, but the shimmer is barely noticeable. Some shimmerless and nearly shimmerless Glossimers have a jelly look on the lips, while some have more of a creamy look. Unfortunately, this falls into the latter category which is the reason for the low rating. I HATE creamy looking lip glosses. I wasn't expecting this one to be like that based on what it looks like in the tube and in pictures.
It's texture and staying power is average for Glossimers.... very slightly sticky and wears for at least 4 hrs without eating/drinking.
I realize most people love this Glossimer and I can certainly understand why. It's just not my thing.
