i was lemming this product for a long time until i finally worked out a swap for it. the packaging is really what attracted me to it, along with it smelling like strawberries. it's a lot smaller than i thought it would be. even shorter than a regular chapstick tube, maybe a little over 2 inches? it's only fills about 1/2 an inch of the tube, a lot smaller than i thought it would be now that i think about it. not worth buying it at full price though. i like it as a lip gloss, a just bitten berry sorta look. haven't tried it on my cheeks yet though, but i think it'd be a bit too greasy feeling for that.
this was a really pretty e/s when i saw it at the store. i loved the little bits of glitter all in it. it matched the hotpants lip gunk almost perfectly. but the texture just wasn't right, a bit too gritty for me. but if you know how to deal with that then maybe you should try it, a really gorgeous raspberry pinkish shade. love the cute flip-top packaging too=)
i found this one on sale at a little boutique for 9 bucks. i picked it up because i just loved the bright pink color. turns out when i got home it smelled like oranges! my favorite! it's a great winter color i think . . much like chanel's jean rose glossimer. the only thing i found wrong with it is the metal cap, it gets all scratched up from being in my purse. my first urban decay lip gunk and i love it!
this is a great brush! i actually swapped for it so i don't really know the retail, but i just checked on gloss.com and it's 27.50. a really great brush for that price. way softer than mac 129. the head of the brush is quite dense, so it picks up a lot of pigment, so be careful of that. it's not a very fluffy brush, if that makes any sense. but i don't know why this brush isn't reviewed yet! it's a keeper for me. the handle is a bit thicker than mac and is thinner than nars. definately go get this one if you want a good brush for an affordable price.
after my glossimer spree, this was one of the few that i actually liked. im a GGG and ginger, pin-up, and twinkle were too light. it's still a very light color, but goes on much less frosty for me, a lot more sheer. wouldn't repurchase at the 24.50 pricetag, but would definately swap for it again if i had to.
this is one of my favorite glossimers. also one of the few that wasn't too light or frosty for me. it looks like a dark brown in the tube, but goes a very sheer shimmery brown on me. love this color! don't think i'll have to repurchase because the tube seems to have lasted me for awhile already. would probably swap for it though, the 24.50 seems like a lot on a lipgloss, even if it is chanel.
another one i wanted to love because i'd heard so many great things about it, but it was just too pale for me. turned out an opaque frosty color on my lips and didn't look right with my skintone (GGG). was almost exactly the same as pin-up and ginger on me=T

this one was similar to praline on my GGG skin. just too frosty. looks a lot better on lighter skintones though.
i received this one in a swap a while and it's a really pretty color. i haven't used it much, but i think i will more during the winter, seems like the color'd work better in the cold weather. it's a pretty bright pink with shimmer. i gotta use it with a light hand or else i'll look clownish. very cute though=)
a great girl in singapore CPed this for me for about 20 bucks, a little bit less than retail. i can see it looking great on lighter skinned gals, but it did nothing for my GGG skin. frosty colors just don't work, even after layering it over other shades. wish it smelled better though, im a sucker for good smelling gloss. love the chanel logo on the top of it, makes me feel rich! haha it's probably the only chanel anything i could ever buy.
really great pencil. i like the color, just not for my lips, seems a bit dark. im more used the natural look, so i stopped using it to line. however, it works wonders as an eyebrow pencil! i dyed my hair brown one day and the black pencil i always used just wasn't right. i've been using this pencil for at least 5 months, still a good 3 and a half inches left. would swap for it, don't know if i'd pay full price for it though.

this is the best lip gloss ever made. softlips comes close when it comes to keeping my lips soft, but this stuff is just the best. i have most of the flavors, but the watermelon is my fav. this is exactly the same stuff as in the old metal tin styles. hard to find, but if you can, get your hands on it=)

i love this product! i've been using naturistics for years, and the watermelon gets me everything=) when they disc. sweet lips, this was my replacement. the tube is huge, like a glue stick, but i like it=) tastes great and just a teeny bit of color. only thing that doesn't leave that white rim of lip skin (?) on the inner part of my lips. definately buy it again if i could find it=T
this is a very versatile color. i just recently found it, and i forgot how much i loved it! this rosey shade is slightly lighter than my natural lip color, so it keeps my gloss looking very . . in place. i don't wear l/s, but it works just the same with l/g. tried it with my nars sunset strip, and it keeps it from looking too peachy/orangey. love it!
i had to try this after reading all of the reviews. they're right, this is the perfect MLBB shade . . very pretty rosey sheer red kind of color. on me, it's like im barely wearing anything. that's why i didn't like it so much . . plus it's very lipstick-y. im more of a gloss kinda gal.
