It’s that time again, ladies … time for Chanel! And time to go buck nekkid lips courtesy of spring’s two 2009 Glossimer lipglosses ($26 each).
They’re new, they’re nude, and they’re ready to bust a micro-glittery move on that pucker.
Wild Rose (my *favorite*) shimmers as a cool-toned plum pink with teeny flecks of silver glitter. She’s a beauty worn all by her lonesome, but I picture her pairing perfectly with smokey brown and plum eyes. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
Beige Guitare grossed me out a little at first because it’s flesh-colored in the tube, kinda like Spencer Pratt’s fleshy beard, EWWW.
But I changed my tune after a quick swatch on the back of my hand. The color flashes from pink to beige to gold in the light, just like RuPaul, LOL! And there’s even glitter — hot pink, gold and silver — for extra credit.

Unfortch, when I wear Beige Guitare on my lips, it doesn’t look as pretty as it does on the back of my hand. I’m not sure why, but the color seems a tad too frosty for my lips and gives me a spacey, 60′s go-go night-clubbing time traveler look…
When I wear this in the spring, I think I’ll try pairing it with bright red and pink lipsticks instead of wearing it on its own. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
Like all Chanel Glossimers, Wild Rose and Beige Guitare are slightly thinner than MAC Lipglasses but thicker than Givenchy Pop Gloss, and, yup, they’re kinda sticky.
A tube will set you back $26 (ouch), but you know how it is with Chanel. You’re getting quality, but you’re also paying for that golden double C logo on the cap.
If you’re like me, a card carrying member of Chanel Makeup Addicts Anonymous, then I think you’ll like Wild Rose, fo’ sheezy.
When you get a chance, stop by the Chanel counter to check out the rest of the spring line (I’ll be covering a lot more over the next few days).
WOW, I can’t believe it’s already Monday night. Where does the time go?
I’m off to watch Slumdog Millionaire with El Hub in a few. I hope it’s as good as I hear.
How was your day? Are you gonna catch the premiere of Whitney’s new show?
