Chanel Allegorie Glossimer Lipgloss

Chanel Allegorie Glossimer Lipgloss ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “sheer shimmering pink.” It’s new and limited edition from Chanel’s holiday collection, which will debut this October. It’s a pale, light-medium pink with subtle yellow undertones and a dusting of warm white shimmer. If you have more pigmented lips, this will lighten it, as there is some color in it, it’s just a light one at that–you can see how it softens and covers up my lip freckle somewhat. Because it’s pale and sheer, it’s more dupeable than not. Here are a few I came up with: NARS International Velvet is less warm-toned, Chanel Caprice is more opaque, MAC Fresh Air is pinker, and Bobbi Brown Pastel has pink shimmer.

Bobbi Brown Uber Suede High Shimmer Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Uber Suede High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone golden beige.” It’s a medium-dark brown with yellow undertones and pink and gold shimmer. NARS More is the closest in color, but it doesn’t have any shimmer and looks a bit more like a lipstick when applied. Bobbi Brown Canary has similar gold sparkle but has no real base color. MAC Bright & Perky is sheerer.
