Lipgloss Love: Chanel Glossimer in Wild Rose

Chanel Lipgloss

As you will no doubt have realised by now, over at All Dolled Up we’re more into lipsticks than glosses. However, there are times when a girl just needs a bit of gloss…enter Chanel Glossimer in Wild Rose.

It’s a beautiful pinky colour with subtle flecks of shimmer, it’s the quintessential “my lips but better” shade. It looks quite pigmented in the bottle, but is far softer on the lips – very elegant and sophisticated.

The texture is lovely – not sticky or tacky (my worst – Juicy Tube, I’m looking at you). It glides onto the lip easily and has good staying power – a good few hours at  least. Obviously if you are eating or drinking you’re going to need to reapply more frequently, but for the most part it stays put like a dream.

Another plus: it comes with a doe foot applicator. Hurrah! I feel so sad whenever I see a girl trying to apply lipgloss with a brush applicator – it just doesn’t work! The brush bristles always go rouge and you end up with lipgloss all over your face. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

I would love to show you how Wild Rose looks on my lips, but I’ve got a blemish situation going on, so my arm will have to do:
