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.

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 !

I knew it’s a bad idea to visit ur website. LOL!! Now I want all of the lipgloss. My wallet is gonna be screaming in pain. Thanks so much for all the swatches Christine =)

oohh. the glosses look so pretty. I’m loving Ginger Blossom and Tangerine Dream.
Jesus! there is so much great stuff out right now and I don’t NEED any of it!

Glad you think they’re pretty, Dawn! 🙂 I don’t think I really need makeup, but want is good enough for me, LOL!

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 …

They’re finally here! Christine, you’re right, Tangerine Dream is gorrrrgeous!!! Am definitely getting it (went to the Chanel counter and found a few other perm glossimers that i really love too) – my poor wallet!

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 😀
