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.
