Chanel Mystery Glossimer

When you have a fiver on your Arnotts Reward Card, there's only one thing to do.  Spend it!  On Saturday I found myself at the Chanel counter in Arnotts.  It was like a moth to a flame and I knew I had to make something from the Christmas collection mine.

So I did.

Chanel Glossimer - Mystery €25.50
Chanel has three Glossimers in the Christmas collection and I picked the one I'd be able to use every single day.  That way I can justify spending the €25.50 on a lip gloss!  (I still have my eye on the darker of the three shades too, so we'll see if that ends up in my collection when I head to New York).

We all know that I'm a sucker for dramatic eye make up and so one needs a great selection of nudey options for the lips.  So this sheer peachy nudey shade has me sorted for this holiday season where I will literally be piling on all the eyeshadow!


This thick, non-sticky gloss feels lovely and moisturising on the lips.  It's a touch more pigmented on the lips in real life, staying true to the swatch on my hand there.  It works perfectly on it's on own and layered on another product I'll be showing you soon.  For me, it's one of those staples that I'll happily carry around in my make up bag at all times.  Do you need it?  No.  There are much cheaper alternatives out there.  But it's an item that will always put a smile on one's face when one fishes it out of the bottom of one's handbag.  Come on, it's Chanel darling...

Have you picked up anything from the Holiday Collection from Chanel?

  1. This looks like a gloss I'd like. Glossy yet not too over the top, perfect :-)

  2. I tried one of their intense red shades but I was disappointed that it didn't last too long on my lips. The Revlon colorbust lip glosses lasted hours more in terms of not needing to retouch too much...
