2 Glosses and a Lippy

Some things I picked up from Chanel. Two are from the Knightsbridge collection and one is from the Spring 2012 collection.

The associate was nice and gave me a couple samples -- one is the Vitalumière foundation in 40 Beige and the other is the Hydra Beauty Sérum. I'm not really a foundation person but it's worth a try. I do wish it was the Vitalumière Aqua though.

Rouge Allure in Kensington

I fell in love with this colour as soon as I saw it on display. It's a bright, wearable fuchsia. For some reason, I have been obsessed bright lipsticks lately. I like that you can apply a little for subtle colour or layer it for a bolder look.

Plus, that packaging for the Rouge Allure lineup (which is priced at $40) is beautiful! You click the gold base and the lipstick pops out from the sleek black case. It's my favourite lipstick packaging save for the Guerlain Rouge G.

I forgot to swatch this but I will feature it on a FOTD soon.

Glossimer in #159 Pétillant and Chelsea

Pétillant (#159) is from the Spring collection. It is a lovely peach shimmery gloss with a touch of pink glimmer. It's light on the lips but offers a pretty sheen. I love this gloss despite it's unoriginality. 

Chelsea is from the Knightsbridge collection and I was kind of disappointed with this. It looks amazing in the tube (bright, vibrant, pigmented) but it's very sheer on the lips. It has no shimmer and hardly any colour. It's not what I had expected but it still looks great over Kensington.

Glossimers (which are priced at $31) are my favourite glosses -- they work so well with my lips. They apply beautifully and the're non-sticky.

They look so similar on the lips :/


What are your favourite lip glosses? Mine is a tie between the Chanel glossimers and the Dior lip polish.
