Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer Lip Gloss in Pin-up

Chanel is one of my favorite makeup brands of all time. I have been faithful with its sophisticated eye shadows for years. Ironically, I had never tried their lip gloss until April this year. I was waiting in line, by the counter, for other girls before me to try Chanel summer 2008 collection. While waiting, I noticed a beautiful line-up of peach-toned Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer lip glosses on the product display for summer 2008. I decided to try them for the first time. The lip gloss quickly won me heart. I wish I had tried it sooner.
Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer has been a cult classic for years. I have Pin-up from the line at this time.

Shade
It has an intense pigment with dense shimmering flecks. Pin-up is a light golden peachy-pink with tiny gold flecks. The color is more to the golden peach side. It is a natural-looking nude peach shade, which doesn't make me look washed-out
.

Texture & Scent
It has a thick formulation. But the texture does not feel sticky. All the lip glosses from Chanel
Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer do not contain any scent or odor.

Finish & Coverage
The gold flecks look quite glistening in the tube. But they are not so noticeable on the lips. The lip gloss a good amount of pigment. It delivers frosty shine and a sultry wash of color. The finish is subtly elegant. The golden peach shade and the micro-fine shimmer give my lips a fuller dimension naturally.
The only downside is it tends to leave the trace of shimmery particles on the lips when the color wears off.
Lasting Power
The lip gloss has a great stay-put texture without being drying. Compared to other lip glosses, I don't need a lot of touch-ups with it throughout the day.

Summary
Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer lip gloss has quickly become part of my makeup staple. Overall, it is a well-rounded lip gloss. I do think Pin-up, the light golden peach shade with a hint of pink, compliments most skin tones.

The lip gloss imparts a watery shine with a hint of subdued shimmer that is simply dazzling! If you are a fan of shimmering lip gloss, you probably don't want to miss Chanel

I love Chanel's lippies, but I have not tried the gloss. It looks beautiful.

Hello Girl-Woman,

Great to hear from you again! Do try the Glossimer lippies if you are a fan of shimmering lip gloss. They really look subtly pretty!

For lip gloss, I have only tried the Glossimer line. I look forward to trying other lip gloss lines from Chanel.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hi BA!

I love, love Glossimers! I'm so glad you discovered them, as they say, better late than never! ;)

I just picked up a new shade myself - Astral. It's a shimmery sheer pink with lots of glitter - kind of a grown up version of Dazzleglass!

Dear Lilan,

I am glad that I have discovered the Glossimer lip glosses from Chanel.

The shade you bought, Astral, is pretty. I like the baby pink color. Keep me posted if you post a review on it. I would love to read and link it. :)

I definitely will be picking more shades from the Glossimer line!

Hope you have a great day!

Regards,

BA

Oh, you finally reviewed Chanels's glossimer!? ;)

Nice post! I would have written the review the same as you either, because I agree with all the mentioned points this product features!

So, I think I have to go to the counter as soon as possible to check it out in the color "Pin up", to see if it does also compliment me...

Hello Jess,

Good to hear from you again!

I should have posted the review on the Glossimer lip gloss earlier...

Do check out the color, Pin-up, by the Chanel counter. Let me know if you like this light peachy-gold shade. :)

Regards,

BA

Hello again!
I'm so disappointed that all CHANEL counters, I've been at, don't have it in "Pin-up" any longer.

Too bad! :(

Wish you a nice day!

Hello Jess,

I am sorry to hear that "Pin-up" is not available at the Chanel counters in your area.

"Pin-up" is one of the re-promoted lip glosses in Chanel Summer 2008 Collection. In the US, the item has been put on the product display of the summer collection. But I noticed it is not featured on the official web site of Chanel's Summer 2008 Collection.

I am sorry to hear that. I hope it will be coming soon at the Chanel counters where you live.

Best,

BA
