Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer BAGATELLE Review and Swatches

by Reika on February 23, 2012

Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer has released with three new limited edition shades with the Spring Collection - BAGATELLE, BONBON and PÉTILLANT. Given that I have already had quite a substantial collection of Glossimers, I decided to only purchase BAGATELLE, and passed on the rest as they are too sheer and look very similar to what I already have.

I don’t think I have ever expressed my infatuation with Chanel Glossimer. First of all they have the most aesthetic appeal to me for someone who judges makeup by its look :-P I don’t normally like to wear over-the-top shimmery lip glosses, and although Glossimer can look quite sparkly from the tube, the micro shimmer actually translates to a  soft gleam to the lips (not glittery).  It applies smoothly without the gritty feel, and the consistency is a little on the thick side so it stays put for a much longer time than other lip glosses.

Glossimer varies from sheer to rich. Many that I own are on the sheer side, with no exception to BAGATELLE. It is swatched as a medium pink with gold shimmers on bare skin but shows up as a sheer pale pink on my lips.

Overall Look:

Bagatelle is my favorite lipgloss at the moment. I wish it wasn’t a limited edition shade.. I may have to purchase a back-up! It’s just so perfect layered on top of any pink lipstick or worn solo.

Reika, you always look gorgeous!! And your reviews are really succinct, i love your blog! :D

I think I am passing on this lip gloss, its weird that I can spend just as much buying one LMdB Lip Creme and Lip Gloss and not want to try Chanel :(

As much as I love Glossimers, for me having one is enough – I just find that they all look so similar on the lips (albeit GORGEOUS!! No one does gloss like Chanel!) I have the shade MICA, which is pretty alone or layered over lipstick / liner. It’s pretty much the only product I only have 1 of!

Agree with you, most of the glossimers I own look very similar on my lips..:-P

Very pretty — as usual! I like the use of the highlighter colour in the inner corner of the eye. It really pulls the look together.

I love glossimers too but have stopped purchasing recently as I realized some of them look the same on the lips due to sheerness. This looks lovely but I’ll ass until I’ve finish at least one!

Hi Reika,
What contact lens are you wearing here? They are a lovely green and looks beautiful on you.

I love Chanel Glossimers! Petit Peche is my go-to light peach-pink lip gloss :) Unfortunately, I had a bit of an issue with Bagatelle, which I also purchased. I love the color, but I can’t quite get over the texture. On my lips it feels a bit gritty- I think because of the glitter in it. I was wondering if you’ve had the same experience?

Hi
I lovee your reviews of the chanel lip products !!
I was wondering if you have done a review or taken any photos wearing chanel rouge in paradis on?
Also do you know of any websites that sell chanel products and ship internationally? $50 aUD os so expensive (what they charge in australia anyway)
