Chanel’s Aqualumiere Glosses ($25) debut this month, and boy are these bad boys built to shine. All nine of the shades deliver loads of sheer, super shiny color.
They don’t feel sticky at all on my lips. Unlike Chanel Glossimer lipglosses, Aqualumiere Gloss wands are tipped with a brush. I appreciate that. For me the brush makes Aqualumiere easier to apply than other products with doe-foot applicators.

I got these swatches a few hours ago at my local Nordies, and Candy Glow (sheer, peachy pink with tiny golden flecks) came home with me.
What I like about Candy Glow…
- Subtle color (perfect for pairing with bold eye makeup looks)
- High shine
- Not sticky
- Brush applicator
What I don’t like about Candy Glow…
- Not long lasting (I had to reapply after two hours)
- Fades faster than Chanel Glossimer, MAC Lipglass and Clinique Glosswear lipglosses
- Expensive ($25)

I get the feeling I’ll have to apply Aqualumiere often, but I can deal with that. It’s Chanel, after all! I don’t love it as much as Clinique Glosswear, my current gloss crush, but I’m glad I gave Candy Glow a go.
My Chanel makeup artist buddy at Nordies tells me that Glass Quartz has been flying off the shelves, but I went with Candy Glow instead. It’s the pink! I got mad love for pink.
Purchase Aqualumiere Gloss at your favorite Chanel counter or online.
T-minus two hours until Friday, and I can’t wait for the weekend. Hopefully I finish my chores and errands early enough to catch a matinee. Gimme that bag o’ popcorn ASAP!
What are your plans for the weekend?
