Chanel Glossimer in Courtisane
Coco and company cooked up two seriously *hot* Glossimers for their fall 2009 Venice collection.
Both Courtisane and Arlequin ($27 each) inject a hint of golden warmth to lips, balancing out the cool green and gray shades for eyes.
I love both of these Glossimers because they aren’t your typical fall lip fare.
Unusual for fall
Courtisane’s a hot pink with gold pearl; Arlequin’s a shimmery peachy gold. Makeup lines usually release darker, vampier lip colors in shades of berry, plum and red for fall, so I was pleasantly surprised to see shimmery glosses in golden hues.
And both of these could easily pass for summer colors, too. No reason at all to wait for autumn leaves.
Chanel Glossimer in Arelquin
Courtisane is my favorite of the two. She’s richly pigmented — more so than most of the Glossimers I’ve tried — but the color’s not so bright or shimmery that it’s difficult to wear. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
Arlequin, a peachy golden pink with bronze glitter, is the warmer of the two shades. She’s sheerer than Courtisane, but her glitter might deliver a nice pop of shimmer when layered atop bronze, peach or brown lipstick.Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+
A lil’ something for everyone
Even though Chanel stocked the Venice collection with a *ton* of cool shades, I’m glad they decided to throw in some warmer lip shades, too.
I really like the gold in these, but what do you think?
Dental Dalliances, Part 12
This summer is turning out to be my summer o’ teeth trubs… Yup, I’m heading back to the dentist this afternoon, aka my home away from home. This time I’m assured there there won’t be any injections up in the mix!
How’s your day been? It’s a hot one here in Nor Cal. I think after my appointment I might stop by Starbucks for an iced tea.
