Chanel Holiday 2010: Pleasing

Chanel Pleasing Glossimer ($27.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is new and limited edition just in time for the holidays, and it’s the most pigmented shade of the three holiday Glossimers.  I always find this kind of color difficult to describe, but I would say Pleasing is a semi-sheer metallic bronze muted by burgundy with multi-colored shimmer.

Glossimers are nearly non-sticky but still have a little tackiness to them, though they are lightweight, non-drying, and last three to four hours on me. They’re scent- and taste-free as well. Some of them are more pigmented but the majority have been on the sheerer side based on my experience.

When I first saw Patcholi and it’s Glossimer pairing, Pleasing, I passed on them because I don’t look good in brown on the lips. After seeing so many flattering swatches and reviews of Pleasing; however, I thought I’d give it a try and I’m glad I did. I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful glints of rose gold and pink copper sparkle that came shining through which made it a flattering shade on my medium rose lips.

As you noted, Pleasing is the most pigmented of the three holiday Glossimers. Whereas the beauty of Pink Pulsion and Charming lies in the depth, warmth, and sparkle they add to whatever lipstick is being worn, Pleasing provides enough pigment to be worn on its own, although your natural lip color will definitely “tune” the finished look.

OOOOH AHHH it’s soo pretty, it kind of reminds me of an old Chanel gloss that I used to have called “Blizzard” although it reminds me of a sheerer version of it!! 🙂

Got this for a small money today (sale of the winter holiday collection), love this and my husband loves on me as well! Lucky me, this gloss is really nice for any occasion! IMO, it plumps lips a bit, not bad indeed.
