Chanel Daydream Glossimer
Chanel Daydream Glossimer ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as an “intense metallic fuchsia.” It’s a fuchsia-red with fuchsia and silver sparkle. Guerlain Cherry Swing is lighter and has gold shimmer, but they are similar applied. MAC Totally Fab is redder. Lancome Sienne Ultime is slightly redder and less shimmery/glossy.
This spring, Chanel’s refreshed the Glossimer range with a few new shades, and Daydream is one of them. The Glossimer range is intended to vary from “simply sheer … to intense” with “subtle sheen to sparkly metallic [finishes].” Beyond that, the formula is supposed to be conditioning comfortable to wear, and long-wearing. For those who have lamented over the lack of color in Chanel’s recent limited edition Glossimer releases, you’ll appreciate the semi-opaque color coverage of Daydream. It’s richer in color and still has plenty of sparkle to dance and glimmer in the light, while the color itself isn’t too red or fuchsia, and the result is something slightly muted and balanced between the two. Daydream lasted five hours on me, which was an hour above average. It’s lightly hydrating, comfortable to wear, non-sticky, and never gets gritty (and the sparkle doesn’t travel).
