Waterlily, Unity, Bel Air

Though “old” news now, Chanel’s Les Naturels de Chanel was a brief reprieve from the transition from summer to fall collections as it debuted in June. I thought I’d share the Glossimers ($27.00 each), just because who doesn’t like to peep out Chanel?


  • Waterlily is a soft, shimmering pink with a bit of beige to it. The shimmer is a mix of peach and gold, and it transfers well to lips. There’s not a lot of color, but there is plenty of sparkle going on!
  • Unity is a bronzy shimmering gloss with multicolored shimmer in a sheer, brownish-peach base. This one was the most pigmented of the three when I applied them to my lips.
  • Bel Air is a semi-sheer, creamy mellowed out pink. It goes on slickly, makes lips look luscious and plump. I did get decent color out of this shade, despite it seeming like it would end up being pretty sheer. Instead, my lips looked like a nice, neutral shade of pink with an ultra glossy finish.

Of the three, Waterlily was my favorite, just because I love me some shimmering goodness, and if it’s gold shimmer, I’m probably already half-way in love.

  1. All 3 of those are gorgeous

  2. Mandy

    Wow! Lovely!
    But at the first picture, isn’t the first one bel air in stead of waterlily?
    Really love the glosses though 😉

    I really like unity, but somehow I can’t justify $27 for a lipgloss :S

    • hi

      Ditto, Wilcoa! 27 dollars for a gloss is CRAZY. However, Karen at MBB compares the Glossimers to Sonia Kashuk’s Ultra Shine Sheer glosses. Try Whisper (nude-peach with gold shimmer) for a Unity dupe and a thin layer of Beauty (hot pink) for a Bel Air dupe (despite the shimmer). Add some Reflects Gold glitter to a thinner layer of Beauty for a Waterlily dupe. :)

    • Yeah, Chanel is pricey!

    I like Unity.

  5. Love Unity! Waterlily’s cute too, but very sheer. I have some fantastic Glossimers already like Astral, Sideral, Big bang, etc., I don’t think I need Waterlily. But Unity is lovely… :)

    Waterlily looks gorgeous! Perhaps I’ll make it my 2nd Chanel lipgloss.

  7. Sass

    Bel Air is really pretty. I’m due for a Chanel gloss so that will be the one.

  8. I’m loving Bel Air!

  9. nicci

    I have Waterlily & I really like the color! I love Chanel glosses – many colors to choose from and not sticky.

    Fine, looks like Bel Air isn’t at all that shimmering, right? I’ve gotta be putting it on my wishlist :p
    Thanks for another great post!

  11. Heather

    they all look beautiful!

  12. Thanks for the swatches! Chanel Glossimer is my all time favorite lipgloss! Can’t wait to check these out.

  13. Jennifer

    I think they’re out of order on the first swatch (Bel Air and Waterlily are mixed up).

    Waterlily is really gorgeous.

    I want waterlily so bad. It is still not released in my country yet. I’ll be disappointed if it doesn’t come here.

    Chanel is pricy, but worth it…to me, anyway. I live off Chanel glossimers and YSL golden glosses.

    I just got Bel Air today! It is so gorgeous. I like that there isn’t any shimmer in it. It sucks that it’s a limited edition color. I would always purchase it when I ran out.
