The formula is supposed to have “intense shine, hydration” with a “gel-like texture” with shades that vary from “sheer to opaque” in coverage. The consistency has a smooth, lightweight texture that can feel more like a gel-like texture with some of the sheerer shades and more like a cream and gel hybrid with more opaque shades. It’s a formula that’s comfortable to wear with light tackiness that lasts anywhere from two to four hours and is hydrating over time.
There was a strong, mirror-like shine across the shades that was very reminiscent of the prior Glossimer formula. There was a faint floral scent, and with some shades, I got a subtle taste of perfume. The doe foot applicator was more unique (at least, to me) with a very curved edge that was great for my bottom lip while flipping it gave me a more paddle-shaped edge that worked better for my top lip.
I would love to see Chanel introduce color descriptions on their retail website, especially for a formula like this where there can be such a huge difference in pigmentation (and finish) from one shade to the next that isn’t obvious from a product photo.
The average rating based on all reviewed shade(s) in this formula is shown below.
This nonsticky, ultra-light formula leaves lips visibly smooth and plump and perfectly brilliant. An innovative dual-sided applicator ensures optimal, even coverage and high precision. The formula is enriched with coconut oil, peptides and vitamin E along with an exclusive Hydraboost Complex to offer hours of comfort and moisture.

The applicator allows you to wear a generous amount of gloss. It's the perfect nude for me and it's the coverage is great. Downside is if your lips are dark the pigment is sheer and it will show, but the amount of gloss you put can counterbalance. It's very sticky (just a bit less than a MAC) Lipglass but long lasting and the colour doesn't run everywhere unlike MAC's lipglasses. It smells good and looks godd (very sparkly !) too.

This gloss is worth every penny! It works with any matte or satin lipstick. It's not sticky. It's long lasting. It doesn't break your lipstick apart. It gives your lipstick a deepened, wet look. Your lips will look luscious. This has replaced all my other lip glosses. I don't know why this isn't flying off the shelves. Amazing!
