I had been trying to find a tinted lip gloss in a particular colour. After buying vast array of unbranded and branded gloss, I gave up and tried upmarket. I am so glad I did.
The lipgloss container is quite small and sleek with Chanel simplicity design, the bottom part is clear so you can see the colour and how much is left after use. Whereas the top part is in shiny black with a wide gold rim at the base. You unscrew and pull out a wand that is a part of the top container, on the end of the wand is a small precision brush to apply the lip gloss onto your lips. I was surprised at how precise the tinted colour was, as usually the colour of the lipstick tends to differ quite slightly when it applied on my lips. Those that are precise tends to be quite heavy and greasy on the lips, to my delight Chanel didn't. Its easy to forget you have a gloss on as it is a very light feeling on the lips.
There are several different tinted colours available, my recommendation is to ask a Chanel representive (usually at bigger Boots store) for advise, they will apply a sample onto your lips and you can decide whether the colour is how you wanted and whether it feels okay. I bought mine for £17 and was given a free miniature volumising mascara. The lip gloss was used every day and lasted 4 months. I loved it so much I went and bought another one and the mascara too.
Chanel Glossimer for Lips is exactly what it says on the tin, an extreme lip gloss that will have you feeling extremely glamorous. Chanel is a fabulous make up brand and one of my favourites, though it is rather expensive I personally find it is long lasting and good quality.
This lip gloss has been around for a number of years, which in my opinion proves that it really is a quality product. Although this is the case it has not aged or become an unwanted item left at the bottom of your make up collection. The gloss comes in a long square tube, three quarter of which is see though, allowing you to completely observe the colour and consistency of the lip gloss. The top quarter of the tube is the lid, which is the classic Chanel shiny, black colour, with a simple yet stylish Chanel logo on the top of the lid in white.
The lip gloss is applied with a long wand which is attached into the lid compartment, the applicator on the end of this rod is made up of 'hairs' which makes it a lot more flexible and controllable for application I have found rather than a fixed end that some glosses contain. I have a number of different colours and types of this Chanel lip gloss and none of the ends on any of the tubes have become damaged or suffered from loose or stray hairs which again I find very frustrating in a lip product, there is nothing worse than finding a thick black applicator hair on your lips!
There really are an infinite number of colours and consistencies to choose from in this Glossimer lip gloss from Chanel. There is a very metallic variety which is thick and luxurious which I have in a pale pink colour; I am not particularly fond of this gloss as it is very thick and sticky especially in windy conditions. This is very sparkly and closer to a thick gloss that you would wear of an evening rather than a day wear. My favourite is the thinner and shimmery variety which I have had in a pale opal shade and more recently a voluptuous red colour. They are quite long lasting colours, especially the red shade which almost stains the lips. The glossiness off them is great and makes your lips feel and look very moisturised and conditioned. I find that one application lasts approximately an hour and then just a brief overcoat rejuvenates this look.
The glosses contain approximately 5.5g of lip gloss per tube and retail for about £20 in most department stores such as Boots, Debanhams and John Lewis. I tend to use these on a regular basis and they last for a good 4-6 months which makes them good value for money in my book. I will keep buying these lip glosses from Chanel and would definitely recommend to friends and anyone looking for a high quality lip gloss.
Us ladies love our lip glosses and with so many ranges to choose from there is always lots of experimenting to be done. I first tried the glossimer lip gloss whilst browsing at a debenhams store and thought I would treat myself to a touch of luxury. There is a nice selection of shades to choose from and I was advised to go with the Praline colour which I have to say was a fab shade. The quality of these lip glosses are just great..They come in a lovely easy to apply applicator with a nice gold edged finish which looks fab when you pop it out of your handbag on an evening out.. (Not that im a make-up snob! But im a lady who likes pretty things!). The gloss doesnt go gloopy and glides on to the lips easily without any excess mess spilling out the sides or when you twist the lide back on. The gloss gives a lovely finish, lasts well and doesnt leave your lips feeling sticky like some brands can. These glosses arent cheap but well worth the spend and I would definately always go for the glossimer by Chanel. A little bit of luxury.
I was brought 2 of these lip glosses for Christmas and although i would never usually fork out £13 for a lip gloss i have to say after using this product a cheapo lip gloss would just not cut the mustard!
I have this in both a white/slivery colour and a very sparkly gold colour. Both have beautiful pigment and both look very posh in their long rectangular tubes with black lid, gold rim and chanel logo printed in white on the top.
When you open up the tube and pull out the applicator there is a bit in the top of the tube that takes off the excess gloss on the way out of the tube, so you're not stuck with lots of gungy mess. The lip gloss comes out with the perfect amount and when you put it on your lips it goes on very smoothly and stays that way! It is not sticky and the colour lasts for absolutely ages, so you don't need to constantly reapply. This does not give you the dripping wet affect that some other glosses do, but rather a sheen of sparkling colour that looks gorgeous in the day or night time.
Chanel make up is available from pretty much all major department stores with make up counters.
Definitely one i would recommend!
Chanel is my favourite brand of cosmetics and to me is the optimum definition of premium.
For my best occassions, I will occassionally purchase a lip gloss. I am not a huge fan of lip gloss as I tend to find that they come in short and stubby, sticky and over filled bottles. The applicators tend to gloop all of the lip gloss together which leaves my lips with a large amount of sticky mess.
When the Chanel consultant suggested that I try the Glossimer, I was very dubious.
However, I was actually very impressed witht he bottle. It was tall and sleek and didn't look cheap and plasticy. There was no sticky over filled residue around theapplicator and the applicating tip was soft and perfectly sized to apply the gloss.
The colour that I use is Wild Rose and is one of my luxury evening lip colours. It isn't sticky or gloopy, it glides evenly across the lips and gives maximum coverage and lip colour.
I would recommend that if like me, you fear cheap and nasty lip glosss, dig a little deeper into your products and treat yourself to the Chanel Glossimer for lips.
Okay, Chanel makeup is one of my great loves, but the Glossimer and Glossimer Extreme take top spot. I first tried these when I was in the US, at the insistance of a friend. Kudos to her, they are the ultimate in lip colour. The packaging is great, slim and sleek, the CC logo atop the lid.. Not over-fancy and not too bulky to just shove in your bag loose. Each comes with an automatic wand applicator built in, as you pull it out, the excess gloss is taken off and remains in the tube - no messy gunk here, and no fussing around to find a lip brush. The formula itself is great, allowing you to build up the colour as desired. Dab it on lightly, smooth over with a finger tip and you have a "light" version of your chosen shade. Apply it fully with the applicator wand and you have a "darker" version of it. Apply another layer and you get a really intense result, but without the gloopy look of most glosses. If you suffer from chapping or peeling, I'd reccomend this - they all contain shea butter which actually leaves the lips feeling like they've had a treatment once the product wears off. But it doesn't wear off easily! The Glossimer Extreeme has excellent staying power. The colour range is extensive now, but this is the one slightly negative point for me. My every-day colour is Blush, which is only available in the US. I've hunted the department stores here and not seen hide nor hair of most of the colours I was buying over there. A shame really, but the range is large enough to provide a UK alternative - Praline. So, Glossimer vs. Glossimer Extreme. The normal glossimers have a more heavy consistency, they are not quite so easy to work with, and the pigmentation is more intense - the darker colours leave a slight 'stain' if you're not careful with your lip line, relevant for those who apply in a hurry or in the car. The updated Extreme version of the gloss sacrifices deep pigmentation and
colour-depth-versatility in favour of a lighter texture (whip-cream like) and more staying power. Glossimers last me about 5 hours, Extreme's last me about 8, no joke.. Over all, I like the updated version better - for some it's not quite as wearable as the normal Glossimer, but it attracts a lot of attention... A real 'model' look. And the best thing? The colours don't make my pale skin look dull. Pricey or not? Well.. they retail for more in the US ($24 to $27), so from my pov, £13 is a bargain. I don't have a whole fortune to spend, but I got 7 different colours and mix them in a palette when I don't feel like wearing any particular shade. Summary: Glossimers have eliminated my need for lipstick. Convinient, versatile, gorgeous!!
I had read about the Chanel Glossimers in one of my glossy mags that they were chosen by many of the rich and famous for when they wre being made up for photo shoots. There are about 10 shades in the range and each has a sparkly element to its colour. The gloss comes in a tube with a wand attachent with a sponge applicator, I went for the colour Blizzard which is a pale pink with glittery silver particles interspersed in it. The gloss glides on evenly and actually stays put ie. lasts on me from 7am - 12pm and the residue left is not the usual gunk from other glosses but all the silver particles stay on your lips. The glossimers cost about £12.00 I say about that because I asked for mine for my birthday. I will definately buy another one in the range they are excellent.
