It’s lipgloss crack! That’s how I felt when I first peeped Chanel’s limited edition Glossimer in Gazelle ($26), a bronzy orange lipgloss with shimmery golden sparkles. I was instantly hooked.
Chanel describes Gazelle as a praline pink (huh?), but on my lips the color looks like coral with touches of bronze and gold. The shade is unlike the other coral colors in my lipgloss stash, like MAC’s Lychee Luxe and Sock Hop, which are mostly brighter orange tones. Gazelle feels more subdued and sophisticated, like the older, more worldly coral cousin (the one with the haughty accent) who went to finishing school.

Gazelle was much easier for me to apply onto my lips than brighter lipgloss shades like MAC’s Style Minx Lipglass and its in-your-face fuschia. In my case, Gazelle is close enough to my natural lip color that I can skip applying lip liner entirely, which makes it ideal for days when I’m running late for work (like always).
Yes, at $26 Chanel Glossimers are pricey, but come on… it’s Chanel! Gazelle is totally worth it.
