    I’m actually not too impressed with these, that’s probably a good thing though since I’m broke as a joke!

    Wow, these look way different on me! maybe because I’m african american with pigmented lips (think tyra banks complexion). My glosses in Ginger and Cherry are very pigmented on me. The Chanel clerk tried to get me to buy lip liner but I knew I didn’t need it. I already have one of these glosses and felt it would show up fine. Next for me is Tangerine Dream then the bronzing powder and blush. I’m not interested in the lipsticks thank goodness.

    These are nice. I’ve never used Chanel makeup before.

  14. Meike

    Which one is your favorite?

    Ohh, loving the Colors, favorite one is Ginger! Cherry and Tangerine are on my list too.. :)

  16. Christine, do you know what number Candy Glow is? I think I have it already, but it only has a number…no name. Thanks in advance!

  17. Miss QQ

    Thanks for the swatches! I’m excited. Just to confirm, are the swatches of Cherry Blossom and Ginger Shimmer mixed up?

  18. I like the lipshines! <3

  19. Ginger Blossom looks good!

  20. Katherine

    They are pretty – but I was so disappointed in the sheerness. Also, not a huge fan of the aqualumiere glosses because they last all of 5 minutes !

  21. Yaya

    Pretty! I think I’m going to have to go do some lip swatches in person at the Chanel counter… Thanks for the swatches Christine!

  22. kleri

  25. I’m loving ginger blossom on you!

  26. Dawn

    Hi Christine,
    First up, i love your website; think its one of the best i’ve seen ever – so current, honest and its great how you actually reply to the posts.

    I’m an NC 43 (MAC Studio Fix) just for reference. i didn’t think much of Tangerine Dream until i saw your lip swatch – was thinking of getting it but i have Amberlight from the Holiday 2008 Collection, which is also goldy. Do you think they are similar?

    • I don’t have Amberlight unfortunately, so I can’t compare :( I do think that you’d look great in Tangerine Dream with your skin tone, though! Tangerine Dream is more orangey coral thank gold, if that helps at all!

      Thank you :)

        Thanks Christine – went to check them out yesterday; Singapore does not have the collection yet! The SA claimed that it’ll likely launch in May =( have to patiently wait for it till then …

  28. Jessica

    I loooovvve the Glosses….
    which shades do you think would look best on NC 40-42 Skin, black Hair, Brown eyes?
    thanks! your posts and swatches are awesome :D

  29. Candy glow doesn’t seem to be showing up on anyone’s lips….the promo pic is a lie! lol
