Chanel Dzhari (608) Aqua Glossimer

Chanel Dzhari (608) Aqua Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “purple red.” It’s a medium-dark, reddish plum with subtle, warmer undertones and fine pink and gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and less tacky compared to most Glossimers, which seems in line with how Chanel’s described the summer’s iterations of glosses as being more “water-like.” It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Courting Chic (LE, $20.00)(95% similar). Bobbi Brown Black Ruby (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Triomphal (LE, $32.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). YSL Devour Me Plum (P, $32.00) is cooler (90% similar). Dior Ruby Essence (778) (LE, $30.00) is more muted (85% similar). Chanel Chene Rouge (212) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar). Giorgio Armani #200 Night Berry (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, darker, more pigmented (85% similar). MAC Hell Bound (LE, $17.50) is warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Gash (DC, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, more pigmented (85% similar). Make Up For Ever 405P Pearly Plum (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Sahara (610) Aqua Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is described as a “peach.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-pink with fine gold and lighter gold shimmer. It had semi-sheer coverage, and due to the lighter coloring, it tended to lighten my natural lip color while adding warmth, but it may look quite different depending on your natural lip color as it is a sheerer gloss. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to wear, though it only lasted for three hours on me. Though dupable, it is ultimately an easy-to-wear gloss if you like warmer shimmer and shine, and it can, of course, be layered over another lip color to add shimmer and shine as well. MAC NUDE (LE, $17.50) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Dynasty at Dusk (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Prrr (P, $17.50) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Stoke the Flame (LE, $17.50) is more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Peek-a-boo Pink (13) (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop PS (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Buxom Chloe (DC, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Rose Gold (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Orgasm (P, $26.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Girly (P, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Greek Holiday (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Midnight Cowgirl (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Sephora Fresh Peach (07) (P, $12.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Nymphette (P, $17.50) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Atole (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Pat McGrath Sunset Rose (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Dior Ever Dior (643) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Freestyle (DC, $20.00)(85% similar). Buxom Trixie (PiP, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Cle de Peau Modern Pink (2) (P, $48.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar).

Dzhari is such a pretty color. I’m too shy to wear red lipstick, but I occasionally wear red gloss (less pigmented), and this one is just gorgeous.

I’ll probably check it out. I have just a couple of red glosses one one red liquid lipstick that I never touch! It takes courage to wear red! 🙂

The red gloss has in interesting watery finish, but I think your eye look stole the show! I think I need to swatch the Chanel quad in store to see the glowy finish, hope I don’t fall in love

That quad has you too, huh Katherine? I have a really weird feeling we will both wind up buying that one! LoL

So are the Aqua Glossimers a new product altogether? Do you know if they’re here to stay or if they’re just limited edition for the summer?

They are all limited edition. Nordstrom has them listed under the regular Glossimer line, but the press release called them out as Aqua Glossimer. I am guessing similar to Aqualumieres, but these are not as smooth. The Aqua Glossimers do have a different doe-foot, though.

You’re doing that desert thing again. Gorgeous. As to these, Glossimers have been a very nice range, but some shades turn over too quickly. Ah, the vagaries of fashion….

I wish they had a more distinct numbering system for say, sheer, shimmer, opaque, etc. because the Glossimer formula drives me batty – I never know what to expect!

Even though these 2 lip glosses don’t exactly “move” me in either direction; I really might have to get this eye shadow quad you’ve been rocking out!!! Scary thing is, I may have dupes scattered throughout my stash, but I doubt that what I have would ever have that perfectly melded together, liquidy look of molten metal! Ah, TF Honeymoon may need to be put on hold…I just don’t know?!?

The pictures on some sites drive me nuts! On the Chanel site, Dzhari looks dark purple.
I love the color as it shows up on your site!

Dzhari is so pretty but I have the red on from the last holiday collections so I’ll probably refrain from picking this one up…. maybe… it’s so pretty… LOL

Dzhari is so pigmented. Looks lovely on you, Christine, although I’m totally stunned by your vibrant and whimsical earrings!

Dzhari caught my eye, it’s such a summery way to be vampy. I’m not sure I’ll try it. I haven’t tried Chanel gloss in a while, so I might need to apply at counter and see how my lips fare with it.

I’m almost positive Sahara is a repromote. I think I’ve bought it previously. I’m not thrilled with Chanel glosses overall….too sheer.
