Product Review: Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss
|Product: Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss|
|Buy it: Chanel, Nordies, NM|
Let's start off by saying, my venture to the Chanel counter was quite frustrating. I had all my swatches ready for their photo shoot, and come to realize, I left my memory stick in my laptop at home. Argh! I think any beauty blogger can relate to the frustration I was feeling at that exact moment. But, no worries, I was able to go back and get swatches for ya'll.
I was pretty excited to try these new glosses, knowing Glossimer is my HG. I visited a few Chanel counters and only found one counter that received their shipment in super early. So, if your counter doesn't have them yet, keep and eye out, they should be arriving this week or next.
Candy Glow was the only gloss I purchased yesterday. It is a gorgeous, peachy-pink color, that was featured in the Chanel Promo Ad. After swatching every color, this was the only color that caught my attention because they are pretty sheer. However, Candy Glow is going to be a cameleon color much like it's cousin, Gazelle. It's more peachy on me, but you can certainly see the pink shimmer to it. This is a fabulous color for summer, espically to replace your lipstick.
Aqualumiere has much more shine to it and less shimmers and sparkle compared to Glossimer. The applicator is different, much like Dior's Addict, but with a longer handle. I found it very easy to apply, and liked the longer applicator much better than Dior's. The only drawbacks I noticed is Aqualumiere didn't have the staying power as Glossimers and was much more sheer, espically the lighter colors. But, the texture was just as good; not sticky and very smooth. Candy Glow, is definetly a must have out of the bunch, espically if you love the coral trend.
Steph's Rating. Their is two reasons why I only gave this gloss 4 kisses. When I look for a quality lip gloss there is two things I look for; color pay-off and lasting power. In which, Chanel Aqualumiere gloss lacked both. However, for a shiny sheer lip gloss, the texture and lasting power is much improved from most brands I've tried. I think if you like sheer lip glosses, you will love this!

I am just wondering if you know/could tell me if any of those shades is close to Chanel Glossimer in Sirop? I LOVE that shade of Glossimer, but I like something a little less sticky. Any recommendations?
