Chanel Glossimers in Pampille, Braise

Chanel Fall 2011: Glossimers

Chanel Glossimers ($28.50 for 0.19 oz.) include two new shades for fall (although, the website also lists Giggle, it’s not on Chanel’s official fall release). Pampille is a sheer pink, while Braise is a reddish brown.

  • Pampille is more like a sheer beige-peach with champagne shimmer. I didn’t see a lot of pink in the swatch. On lips, it’s mostly colorless and adds a glossy shine with shimmer.
  • Braise is a semi-sheer plummy-red with red, copper, and gold shimmer. The color applied evenly and gave lips a fuller look.

Chanel Glossimers are non-sticky glosses that tend to be sheer in color (with some shades being semi-sheer to semi-opaque, but the majority are on the sheer side). The way Glossimers reflect light tends to be one of their major draws, and it’s not always something that can be captured in a photograph. I’ve told this story before, but I didn’t understand the hype until I saw the way the gloss looked when the sunlight hit it–it was divine. Despite their non-tacky feel, they wear three to four hours, which is a surprising wear time for a non-sticky gloss. They’re comfortable to wear, and they fade evenly without leaving behind gritty glitter or shimmer.

Pampille is very much like any number of sheer lipglosses. There really is no defining characteristic to it that makes it stand out amongst numerous sheer glosses. Braise has more of a berry color and has shimmer, but it is similar to MAC Looks Like Sin. It’s also a more refined version of MAC Decorative.

B+
Pampille is easily skipped if you have a lot of ultra sheer glosses in your stash, while Braise offers a lovely pinky-plum lip that will complement over vampy lipsticks for fall as well as work on its own.

    There’s nothing bad about them, but they’ve just been so DONE before. Like, a hundred times over. I’m looking for something unique and fun!

    I really, really wish that pink were more pigmented. I understand that sheer glosses have their place in the beauty world but when Chanel keeps releasing practically clear Glossimers it just gets boring and there’s only so many you can own. I love the formula of these glosses and would appreciate something more interesting!

    Sheer lip glosses confuse me. They all look alike unless the tube colors are super different.

    When the collection will be available in italian shops? thanks

  10. Chanel glosses are always stunning in the packaging but it’s almost always so sheer that I would just rather go to the drugstore if I’m looking for a sheer gloss. Way to expensive for such little “oomph!”

  11. Love braise. When Chanel releases a glossimer extreme, it is more opaque, almost like a liquid lip gloss. Too bad they dont do too many of them

    As I was looking through my makeup collection, I found that I already owned Braise, except that it’s actually Nars lipgloss in Misbehave! Thats how close a dupe it is.
