    Chanel Glosses - ALL

    I hear rave reviews of this color and I'd really like to get it but was this limited edition? because I can't seem to find it at the Chanel makeup counter

    It's on the Chanel website and at gloss.com so it must still be available. I got mine on E-Bay - a small GWP size. I recommend it, but you might want to try E-Bay if you're not sure about spending $25 for a lip gloss.

    I found a few listings there

    I tried this one and it was too warm for me. Hibiscus worked a lot better for my PPP complexion.

    I love Spark. It's the first Glossimer I ever got, and it's still my fave. Very flattering.

    Chanel Glosses - ALL

    Ladies, must of you know my favorite item from Chanel are the Glossimers or Les Levres Scintillantes as this was my very first Chanel item. My mom gave it to me and it was love at first sight!!

    So...

    What are your favorites??

    Are you tempted to try a gloss from Chanel??

    Do you love them??

    Do you miss the old formulas like Cristalle gloss or Aqualumiere gloss??

    Are you excited for the new ones??

    Is Rouge Allure Laque a gloss, a lipstick or both??

    Re: Chanel Glosses!!

    Oh I am so tempted by Chanel glosses but I have not been able to find the time to go to the counter and swatch them myself. About being excited about the new ones, I know it's very anticipated, but gimme Pink Pulsion form the holiday collection now!

    About RAL I have only the one in Ming and although I love it, it is not as easy to apply in a rush as a usual lipstick and that's the only con I have against them. Coverage, duration and that feeling of wearing a great product of the lips: +1000

    Re: Chanel Glosses!!

    I adore Chanel lip stuff in general, but I really feel that the glosses are in a league of their own.

    The Glossimers are so sparkly and gorgeous without treading into the "I jammed my face into pixie dust" category. They're grown up glimmer, fit for a Queen and not a Princess. I can't get enough of them!

    Current Glossimer fav: Pink Teaser

    RAL's I think of as a liquid lipstick and they're amazing! They're SO pigmented and make the lips look seriously full and lush. Dragon is a must own for any red lip lover and is my go to lip for a fancy night out.

    Current RAL fav: Phoenix

    The new RA Extrait De Gloss are my favorite to date. IMO, they're ridiculously great in every aspect. They feel amazing on the lips, look juicy and glorious, they wear pretty well, and they in between Glossimers and RAL's in pigmentation. If you're a fan of MAC's Cremesheen Glasses, I think you'll LOVE these. These are my perfect every day/every night gloss and I'm thrilled they're a perm addition.

    Current RAEDG fav: Exces

    Re: Chanel Glosses - ALL



    This is my little Glossimer collection so far: Courtisane, Magnifique, Waterlilly, Mica, Bikini Peach, and Colibri (Aqualumiere)
    I absolutely love all of them with the exception of Colibri (just a shiny top coat basically -- pretty, but doesn't last long on me).
    I still want: Rose Sand, Wild Rose, Pailettes, Beige Guitarre . . . and I'm sure many of the LE ones to come

  11. #11

    Re: Chanel Glosses - ALL

    ^^ All the pink glosses. I want Waterlily!

    Does anyone have Gold Light glossimer? It is my favourite glossimer, and it is not pink.

    Oh my I agree with ALL of the above!!! The Extrait Glosses are all that. Exces is my fave. too. I wear it all the time. I hope they do more & more colors. They are perfect.

    Re: Chanel Glosses - ALL

    I love the pigmented glossimers without shimmer (Sirop, Giggle and Bel Air). Rose Dilemma is pretty as well but it's more sheer than the others. I also adore the new Extrait de Glosses, I got two so far (Liberte and Confidence). My number one fave is the RAL in Ming, it's my perfect MLBB.

    I think I'm pretty set, I just want Magnifique and Dragee! I'm eyeing Bikini Peach but I'm still not sure about it (I read somewhere that there was glitter fallout when it wears off.) I can't find Dragee anywhere though, I think it was limited edition and was released a long time ago.

    We need Chanel CCOs to get our hands on some of those "limited edition and released a long time ago" items! Where do the leftovers go? It drives me crazy!

    Do they end up on Ebay? I know there is one seller that buys up leftover stock from the big name stores.

    In my head I picture a glorious warehouse filled with Chanel goodies of the past. Boy, I'd love to dig through that!

    I only have Pink Teaser and Venus but any recs for NC45 skintone? I've been eyeing Glaze and Spark online and anything from the collection that had Venus but I'm unsure of whether they were LE?

    ^Ooh, I bet Spark would look fantastic on NC45. From the Lumieres Celestes glossimers, I think only Cosmos and Jupiter (the red-brown and the red) were LE.

    The Chanel counter in Nordstrom SF finally got the glosses, lippies, and varnishes in! And who swooped in within hours of the phone call to claim some RAEG? I'm really impressed by the opacity! And I think I actually dig the new applicator.
    Check out my sale!!

    ITA I brought Emoi. I was a little put off by the applicator at first but it does apply the gloss smooth and evenly. The more I used it the more I liked it.

    I dunno. It doesn't seem to me like there's enough on Ebay to be all of it, but what do I know?

    I looooove chanel's Glossimers. They're the product that first hooked me into Chanel. I have three so far: Jupiter, Venus and Pink teaser but I so want more. They're so sparkly and photograph amazing!

    I have only one RA lacque, Phoenix and love it! It lasts a very long time and i love the strawberry shade. This I consider more of a lipstick. Amazing formula.

    I also only have one of the new RA Extrait de Gloss in Emoi and is the perfect low maintenance red. I love how pigmented it is and have no issue with application, shall pick more of these soon. I agree that these are like MAC creamsheen glosses but better as they're more pigmented.

    Chanel lipglosses rule!

    The Extrait de Glosses also last quite a long time for a gloss, I think. I just love them...and glossimers too! Wild Rose is still my favorite glossimer.

    My Nordies had them out today too plus the Holiday sets that are on chanel.com. The lady told me that some older lady bought one of the sets that has the bag and she said.."now I don't have to spend $2500.00 to have a Chanel bag to carry" cute, but a lil bit of a difference

    It looked so beautiful! I didn't get to touch it - which was dumb on my part but It was under those display cases. The case & the brushes looked very elegant, great quality & high end. Mine shipped, so I am getting them Tuesday (wish it was Mon.) I love how the case just says Chanel not chanel beaute in case you do want to carry it out. And, it has a wonderful inside zipper pocket opposite the brush slotted side. I will post pics when I get mine.

    I need to try these. From what I have heard, these are replacing the Aqualumiere glosses, correct? I have 3 of those, and I like the colours, but the wear is not long at all. I am hoping this new formula has much better wear.
