Gorgeous Chanel Glossimers in Calypso and Jalousie!
I have a problem. A lip gloss problem. I LOVE me some gloss and have TONS of it. But, despite the fact that my room runneth over with gloss, I keep purchasing more. Fortunately, in the case of these two Chanel Glossimers, the purchases are often quite worth it!! On the left here we have Chanel Jalousie, a stunning deep fuchsia pink gloss with very very fine shimmer. Jalousie is one of the more pigmented Chanel Glossimers I've come across.
On the right is Chanel Calypso from the Chanel Summer 2012 collection. Calypso is my kind of gloss, a juicy orange with gold shimmer flecks. The shimmer in Calypso is much more visible than the very fine shimmer in Jalousie. Calypso is also pigmented, although less so than Jalousie.
Jalousie on the lips. This was a bit of a light application. Jalousie can be MUCH more pigmented than this. When applied a little heavier, it looks just like my arm swatch above.
Calypso on the lips. Love. Again, this could be applied heavier for a bit more color, but I really like it this way.
Chanel Calypso and Jalousie are available now online at Chanel.com.
