Chanel Aurore, Pensee, Pink Peony Glossimers

For summer, there are three new shades of Chanel Glossimers ($28.50 for 0.19 oz.) that are limited edition. All three are varying degrees of sheer, but in general, they are on the sheerer end of the spectrum. Glossimers are designed as a sheerer formula often recommended for layering. Though the range varies from sheerer to more opaque, these don’t seem to deliver quite as much oomph as other Glossimers–perhaps because the base color is nearly invisible or the mix of shimmers does not stand out as much.

Dolce & Gabbana Amethyst Lipgloss

Dolce & Gabbana Amethyst Lipgloss ($29.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a deepened burgundy berry with soft violet and burgundy micro-shimmer.  It’s semi-opaque with decent color pay off and definitely gives lips a darker, vampier look, but my natural lip color does peek through.  What I really liked about this gloss though was how despite the deeper color, it did not settle into lip lines.

Dolce & Gabbana Vibrant (#143) Lipgloss

Dolce & Gabbana Vibrant (#143) Lipgloss ($29.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a rich shade of darkened fuchsia raspberry with iridescent fuchsia-purple micro-shimmer. It delivers nearly opaque color, and it doesn’t settle into lip lines. I love how it is a mix of pink, red, and berry.

Dior Pink Stiletto Ultra Gloss

my thoughts on the formula: The strength of Ultra Gloss lies in its formula–I really think it’s the feel and look of the product that makes this gloss worth checking out. It’s completely non-sticky and has no scent or taste. All these characteristics leads me to think that a lot of lipgloss fans will enjoy them. I did find that these only lasted just under two hours on me, and then all that remained was the shimmer/micro glitter, and I’d say this was the major downside of this gloss.

Illamasqua Absorb Intense Lipgloss

Illamasqua Absorb Intense Lipgloss (£13.00 for 0.20 fl.oz.) is described as a “creamy biscuit nude.” This is easily one of the palest, lightest nudes that I own. On me, it’s not a shade I like, but I know there are readers who really enjoy a very pale nude lip–and with the right look, it can definitely be pulled off. For those intrigued, it can also be mixed with other Intense Lipglosses easily (since it’s quite creamy), as well as patted on for a sheerer, more muted effect of the natural lip color.
