Skip down down memory lane with me for a sec…
Remember how Chanel dropped the fabulous coral dream that was Gazelle Glossimer on us for summer last year?
Girrrrrl, that was some good shizz! To this day I foam at the mouth Kujo-style when I think of Gazelle. It was THAT good.
This summer, I had myself braced and ready for another orgasmic Glossimer moment from Chanel, but they decided to throw me a curve ball. For their Cote D’Azur summer collection they skipped the Glossimer entirely and released four Aqualumiere Glosses ($27 each) instead.
No big deal, but I was a little bummed not to get another Glossimer this time around.
It’s not like I feel like I’m settling for less because I totally dig the Aqualumiere Glosses, too. They’re hydrating, non-sticky on my pucker and impart a shiny finish I love.
But the colors of this particular lineup didn’t spark the same sort of lipgloss fever I felt with Gazelle.
They’re attractive and have that sexy yet classic vibe Chanel does so well, like something I could wear while tooling around on a yacht in the Mediterranean, sipping champagne — you know, stuff I have the opportunity to do all the time, LOL!
Of course, in a fantasy like that I’d also be wearing an elegant Diane von Furstenberg dress, have six-pack abs and perfect, well-behaved hair.
Gotta dream big, ya know?
About the colors, what do you think? How do you feel about not getting another Glossimer this time?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Fellow Glossimer lovers, all is not lost. We’ll get our fix next month when Chanel’s Celestial Lights Collection arrives. Just gotta make it till then!
