Chanel Allegorie Glossimer Lipgloss ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “sheer shimmering pink.” It’s new and limited edition from Chanel’s holiday collection, which will debut this October. It’s a pale, light-medium pink with subtle yellow undertones and a dusting of warm white shimmer. If you have more pigmented lips, this will lighten it, as there is some color in it, it’s just a light one at that–you can see how it softens and covers up my lip freckle somewhat. Because it’s pale and sheer, it’s more dupeable than not. Here are a few I came up with: NARS International Velvet is less warm-toned, Chanel Caprice is more opaque, MAC Fresh Air is pinker, and Bobbi Brown Pastel has pink shimmer.

What makes Glossimers popular are their non-sticky, thin consistency combined with high gloss finish and sparkling shimmer. They also tend to wear a little longer than the average gloss.  Allegorie wore for four hours, which is about average across all gloss, though a little better than average for such a sheer color.    The shimmer isn’t too dense, so it doesn’t look frosted or metallic on, but it does catch the light nicely and have a very Glossimer-like feel and look. I liked that it while it was sheer, it wasn’t completely colorless.   It was comfortable on, both hydrating and non-sticky.  It could have applied just slightly more evenly.

It looks nice, but somehow I have the feeling I already own something similar from Chanel. Do you find it different enough from the pale glossimer in Chanel Fall 2011 collection or Roselin (from Fleur de Lotus)???

Thanks a lot for your reviews, they are very helpful to decide whether tu buy or not 🙂

Hm, I don’t think it’s like the Glossimers from Fall 2011, and I don’t have Roselin! Pampille was warmer shimmer, no color in the base.

Darn, this would be my ideal color if it wasn’t sheer. Nothing shows up on my lips unless it’s completely opaque. Any suggestions for an opaque or nearly opaque gloss this color?
