A glittery pinkish purple lipgloss? Yes, please!
And the fact that this one’s also a Chanel Glossimer doesn’t hurt — well, except for the $27 price. That part hurts, but overlooking the way in which that makes my tummy churn, yippee!
She’s called Star, and like her namesake she’s all about the sparkle (with a very light tint). We’re talking good glitter here, very fine, and it doesn’t migrate around my lips.
Star feels thick and slightly sticky to me with a wear time around 90 minutes (mediocre for a gloss), and I’m glad that Chanel kept her scent- and flavor-free.

I like the way Star looks all by her lonesome as a low-maintenance gloss, but I think she also works well layered atop plum and pink lipsticks, too.
Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: Chanel Glossimer fans and girls who don’t mind having to reapply often might flip for Star’s blinged-out glitter and subtle color, but this gloss, being from the House of Chanel, comes at a steep $27 price. Available at the Chanel SoHo store and Chanel.com. Grade: B
