The Summer Season: Chanel Venus (#124) Glossimer

Chanel Venus (#124) Glossimer ($27.00) is a dazzling shade of brightened rosy pink with iridescent fuchsia and gold sparkle. This shade, apparently, released last summer, but it’s still available at Nordstrom (which means I’m still allowed to feature it, woo!), so you can grab it there if you love it enough to buy! 🙂 I love this shade in particular for its color pay off and glittering shimmer. Glossimers always look best in the sunlight, by the by, because they look phenomenal–truly like shimmering water. It’s a very slicked, wet, and dazzling look. Glossimers are incredibly glossy with a medium-thick formula that’s not overly sticky. I get about three to four hours of wear when I wear a Glossimer on its lonesome.

P.S. — Wouldn’t this look FABULOUS over Guerlain Giulette? I think I may have to do that this week!

Is this the right pink gloss for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

See photos and swatches…

That’s such a nice bright pink! I was going to buy Guerlain’s Rose Florida based on your other review but I think I’ll check for this one first. I love how the sparkles show up even on the panned out picture@

More Glossimer post please! I'm SO getting Chanel lipgloss. It's on my top 10 product of what to get as my graduation present;D

Are the glitter flecks/pieces particularly gritty or have a gritty sensation? I would hope not, because this colour is absolutely gorgeous, but I just want to make sure lol. You look lovely as always!

Love it but don’t know that I’d spend $27 on it as I have a few (OK, a lot :o) of glosses I love already. I love the sparkle as it’s eye catching but not big flecks of glitter. Hmm, I better not look at it any longer or I may break down and buy it :-O

Oh wow. That is gorgeous in the tube and on your lips! How would you say the “sparkliness” compares to YSL Golden Glosses? Thanks! =)

Hi Christine! Sorry this isn’t quite related to this post but here goes:

My boyfriend’s family is visiting us here in the Philippines from France (he’s French and I’m Filipina) and his mom offered to buy me some Chanel products. I already made up my mind on Rouge Coco Madamoiselle, but I really can’t decide which Rouge Allure shade to buy! Can you recommend anything?

I’m NC42, Asian with pinkish lips. Chanel Santal looks peachy on me. I’d like to have a neutral pink or brown, nothing flashy or anything. Hope you can help!

Hi, I own this but ı can’t wear it because it looks so reddish pink on my lips, too dark. I don’t know what to pair it with. e/s and blush wise. If you have any suggestions I would be very pleased and thankful.

I also would like to say the full face with l/s and l/gloss on photos are very helpful compared to “only lips” photos. So thank you!

Hilana Avatar

Oh. Just want to add. I also like the new full face pic you include with the lip swatches so we could get the total effect. Very nice, Christine!

Finally I found this gloss in my local department store and what can I say… I bought it! It looks kind of shocking in the tube, but it is sooo lovely on the lips! The golden sheen is amazing! Thank you Christine!
