Chanel Holiday 2010: Charming

Chanel Charming Glossimer ($27.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a sheer barely-there pink gloss with pink shimmer. It is new and limited edition from Chanel’s holiday collection. The gloss itself is nearly colorless, but the shimmer is colored enough that it’s noticeable when worn. It’s a very minimal, easy-to-wear kind of shade that will be a must for some and a, “So what?” kind of gloss for others. Charming can be worn alone for a little dazzle or layered on top of lipsticks to add shine and shimmer.

Glossimers are nearly non-sticky but still have a little tackiness to them, though they are lightweight, non-drying, and last three to four hours on me.   They’re scent- and taste-free as well.  Some of them are more pigmented but the majority have been on the sheerer side based on my experience.

    I have the Magnolia lipstick from this collection — I bet this would be gorgeous over that lippie! Chanel has the best glosses!

  2. Nicole

    I really love this. I know the shade is nothing special, but the sparkle is so pretty! And it’s only my second Glossimer, so I’m quite excited about that. :p

  3. This reminds me of my beloved Astral which I have a couple tube of, only less intense. I skipped on this particular Glossimer because I have many Glossimers that look like this =D. Pink Pulsion however, I may have to purchase a backup…

  4. Jenn

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this gloss!! I bought one and ended up going back to get another as a backup because I love it sooo much! :-)

  5. Deb

    It’s very pretty! But yeah, not a really special color. I can never decide whether it’s better to splurge on something special or something I’d wear all the time when it comes to high-end brands.

  6. Debora

    Hey, this looks like a dupe of Bourjois 3D effect max lipgloss #62 rose gold!

  7. Rachael

    Can you recommend any glossimers that are more pigmented? I love the sparkle I have pink venus i think it is i like it but love colour the more pigmented the better (I realise these will never be Illamasqua intense lipgloss!)

  8. vivian

    your skin looks amazing! which foundation are you wearing?

  9. AnGeLwInGz

    So they re-released Astral under a different name. Awesome!!!!! :)

  10. Ashley D.

    It’s pretty, but that’s it.

  11. Eileen

    Very pretty … too sheer for my liking to wear alone but for sure I could & would wear this over lots of different lipsticks.

  12. Hannah

    Pretty, but I feel like I have a million and one glosses like this.

  13. Cheyenne *DemureAllure*

    Again, I’m not impressed by Chanel… :/

  14. Oh Milani definitely has a dupe of it. It’s the Crystal Gloss in Baby Love. it’s that light pink with pink glitter and it smells like creme brulee, which is always a plus.

  15. I love your website!! Continue like this!
    He is amazing =)
