Chanel Gardenia Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Gardenia Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark rose pink with subtle golden micro-shimmer and shine. The color applies semi-opaque–almost covering my lip freckle but not entirely–and deposits color evenly. Like many other Rouge Cocos, the finish is shimmery and borders on frosty.

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.

Laura Mercier Sandcastle Shimmer Lipstick

Laura Mercier’s Shimmer Lipsticks have a rather strong floral scent to them, while several of her other lip products are heavily vanilla scented (not sure why these are different). I get three to four hours of wear (about average), and I find these neither drying nor particularly moisturizing, but they are comfortable to wear. Sandcastle applied evenly and easily without having to layer on a lot to get opaque color.

MAC Viva Glam VI Lipstick

It wears just under three hours on me (I typically average four), and I find that lustre finished lipsticks are not moisturizing.   I also find that this particular finish doesn’t always apply evenly.  It is vanilla-scented, like other MAC lip products are, and the tube has metallic red detailing in the logo and inside the tube in the spirit of Viva Glam. 100% of the selling price of each Viva Glam lipstick goes towards the MAC AIDS Fund.

Guerlain Cherry Blossom (161) Rouge Automatique

Guerlain Cherry Blossom (161) Rouge Automatique ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a semi-opaque rosy pink with subtle yellow undertones and soft pink shimmer. The finish is a soft frost, and I didn’t have any of the texture issues with Cherry Blossom that I had with Mitsouko.
