Chanel Allegorie Glossimer Lipgloss
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.

What makes Glossimers popular are their non-sticky, thin consistency combined with high gloss finish and sparkling shimmer. They also tend to wear a little longer than the average gloss.  Allegorie wore for four hours, which is about average across all gloss, though a little better than average for such a sheer color.    The shimmer isn’t too dense, so it doesn’t look frosted or metallic on, but it does catch the light nicely and have a very Glossimer-like feel and look. I liked that it while it was sheer, it wasn’t completely colorless.   It was comfortable on, both hydrating and non-sticky.  It could have applied just slightly more evenly.

If you're not a fan of all the bold, richer lip colors that tend to dominate the fall and holiday collections, you're in luck--Allegorie delivers a little color, some shimmer, but it's noticeable.

    I’m loving your makeup here! The bright gold eyeliner is quite striking.

  2. uh yeah no! Not enough colour or sparkle for me for 30 dollars!

  3. It looks nice, but somehow I have the feeling I already own something similar from Chanel. Do you find it different enough from the pale glossimer in Chanel Fall 2011 collection or Roselin (from Fleur de Lotus)???

    Thanks a lot for your reviews, they are very helpful to decide whether tu buy or not :)

  4. Now this I like on you! :-D Perfect for me, because yes, I’m on of those people that isn’t into a bold lip for fall :-)

    Darn, this would be my ideal color if it wasn’t sheer. Nothing shows up on my lips unless it’s completely opaque. Any suggestions for an opaque or nearly opaque gloss this color?

    I love your eye makeup in this!
    But about the lip gloss – I really don’t think it’s worth 30 dollars…

  7. Pretty, but a tad too pale and generic looking in my opinion
