   I picked this gem up about a month ago and included it in my December 2010 favorites. From the Holiday 2010 line-up, this was the Glossimer I initially glazed over. I am very glad to have it in my collection now. 
   It is a warm sparkling baby pink, bedazzled with pink, gold and silver shimmers. If you are wondering if this is similar to Mica, it isn't. I completely forgot to do comparison shots, you just have to take my word for it =). Mica is much cooler and even lighter than Charming. This shade is very sheer and on my lips, there is a subtle pink wash that is very natural. This is the perfect shade to wear when you don't feel like wearing makeup. 
   In direct sunlight, all Glossimers shine with unparalleled dimension. The shimmers are always cohesive and deliver such an elegant look to your lips, no matter what the shade is or how much sparkle is inside the tube. 
   I believe all three shades released within this collection were limited edition, but I'm not 100% sure. CHANEL may state that it is LE in the promo but it always changes, as in the case with Paradoxal. I have also heard from a little birdie that CHANEL will be increasing their prices on their products this month, I'm not sure by how much. These are now $28.50USD (up $1.50), lipsticks are $32USD (up $2) and Joues Contraste blushers are $43USD (up $1).  

Product: CHANEL Glossimer - $31CAN(?)


  1. @Pammy - Indeed it is! CHANEL could make a pallid green Glossimer and I'd still call it pretty, lol. Thanks for stopping by!
