Soft Pink Lips for Summer

Chanel Les Pop-Up de Chanel Collection launches a new, but lonesome, shade of glossimer in Bikini Peach (#257). It’s a creamy, milky pink with yellow undertones and a soft, champagne shimmer with a glossy sheen. I can’t remember owning other creamy glossimers, so it’s an interesting shade for me. Despite its creaminess, it doesn’t settle too much into lip lines, and from a normal viewing distance, it just looks like a soft pink lip. I like that there’s enough color that it doesn’t read pasty on my warmer skin tone, as many milky pinks often do. It’s a fun, easy-to-wear shade that can be worn alone or layered over a lipstick, depending on what you’re going for.

  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

Recommendation: If you love a dazzling, moisturizing lip gloss in a milky pink shade, you may like this one. It’s suitable for both cool and warm skin tones, because it is more of a neutral, if slightly warm, pink.

  1. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. What a great color for summer! Peachy nude, I can’t wait to go grab this.

  2. JoElla

    That is a very pretty color! I really hope someone comes out with a great drugstore dupe for it.

  3. Beautiful colour, but it is too light for you, isn’t it? Loved the ornage on you, that was WAWAWOOM!

    • I don’t think so :) I wouldn’t wear it alone, but I’d pair it with a darker eye.

        yeah this is what I like about the whole face swatch. Obviously your not wearing much makeup but the color does look pretty on you and would look better if you did stronger eyes and with the face swatch I now know to do that whereas with just the lips I couldn’t see what the color was doing to the rest of your face (like if it washes you out) or what it needs to look even better. To be honest I have NEVER seen a bad lip swatch on you so that just the lips alone were no help when EVERYTHING looks so freakin good on your lips aone. sorry for the rant just wanted to reiterate how much we appreciate them!!!

    i LOVE this color :)

  5. Rae

    This looks lovely on you, Christine! It reads a little peachy on my monitor, and the swatches are just divine.

  6. Frances

    Christine, if you haven’t tried Praline/Giggle, you must. It’s a gorgeous pinky brown, and crazy-flattering.

  7. Alexis

    I would definitely need a lipliner with this one but I’m still interested seeing this in person.

  8. Ooh pretty! Love Glossimers. :)

  10. Pretty- looks like a versatile shade for spring/summer!

    I am going to leave this one, since it’s milkier than I would prefer. When I went to Saks last week, I forgot to mention that in connection with getting the Nouvelle Vague, I also splurged and got the new Aqualumiere Brilliant Levres Lipgloss in 727 – Bondo Beach. So pretty! Love the coral/orange hint with shimmer of gold and a touch of pink. No milkiness here! Sheer, but slightly vibrant and perfect for brightening any face! I absolutely LOVE the gel-like texture and it stays on for a couple hourse, provided you use a straw to sip your water, tea or coffee. :0

  12. Michelle

    So pretty and natural looking!

  13. Kathryn

    I really like this colour! I only own one Chanel glossimer in Wild Rose which is a very pretty neutral. I only wish that Chanel glosses had a better scent, but that won`t stop me from buying them!

  14. Gao

    Love the color!!! Looks so pretty on you too~!

  15. I’ll probably just get it for the cute name lol

  16. Emily

    Wow! I love this one! So me! What’s the price tag look like?

  17. tricia c

    Is this similar to nars belize?

  18. Glenda

    I absolutely LOVE Chanel glossimers. I am addicted to them. After viewing the pics
    I knew I had to have this glossimer. It reminds me of an old shade of glossimer
    that was discontinued.

  19. InĂªs Mariano

    Loved this! Is this a LE? You look so gorgeous Christine :)

  20. Glenda

    OMG! Just got my Chanel Bikini Peach glossimer Saturday. I
    love it! Finally, a Chanel lip gloss like the one I had before.
    The old gloss was named Sesame I believe. I loved that color. It
    was gorgeous and discontinued shortly I purchased it. I am so
    happy to see tha Chanel has come out with a glossimer in that
    same milky pink. Yay! for glossimers:)

  21. nicci

    I tried this on last night and I loved it! But I am *trying* not to buy any more glosses for awhile :-( I’m so tempted to go back to Nordstrom during my lunch break today….hmmmmm

  22. Natalie

    I saw this in-store and loved it. Any idea how it compares to their glossimer in Sesame? The counter was sold out so I couldn’t compare!

    This looks gorgeous over Guerlain Rouge Automatique 161 “Cherry Blossom”. Takes it from a bit too milky-looking to that tres chic not too pink, not too nude, really expensive looking perfect pink!
