Chanel Glossimer tops reviewers' lists because of its wide range of pleasant colors. The lip gloss is available in 38 shades that users say have great staying power. Although Glossimer can be a tad sticky, reviewers say that it is much more comfortable to wear than other leading lip glosses and it provides just the right amount of shimmer. The lip gloss has a gel-like texture that feels great, according to users, but it's expensive and not available everywhere. For deeper color and longer wear, reviewers recommend a cream lipstick like Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipcolor (*Est. $6).
Although her review is critical, we found Paula Begoun's analysis of Chanel Glossimer at Beautypedia.com to be the most thorough. User reviews at MakeupAlley.com and TotalBeauty.com are plentiful. InStyle magazine tests Glossimer and compares it to other lip glosses for the magazine's annual beauty awards.
Other than the nice range of colors, Chanel Glossimer is nothing more than a standard lip gloss that is very sticky, Paula Begoun says.
