Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer Calypso Review and Swatches

If you’re a fond fan of Chanel’s Glossimer formula you’ll be happy to know about the limited edition shade Calypso which embraces the season’s current shade trend of orange.

Take a peek!

Calypso is another wearable shade of bright tangerine orange. I find orange terribly challenging to wear so I’m ever so delighted when I find one I can wear. This is a golden orange with full coverage but somehow, someway even the heavier pigmentation of the shade allows me to wear it without an issue.

The Glossimer formula is always a lovely one as I’ve reviewed them numerous times on here I won’t get too into too many details on them here. However, I will say they have a lovely glide with a comfortable, weightless feel that’s never sticky or tacky.

I think Calypso is particularly unique since it isn’t as sheer as many other shades I already own plus it isn’t a loud, bold orange.

Calypso on lips

Overall, if you’re busy loving on the shade of the season, this one might be a gloss you’ll want to add to your stash!

A perfect golden orange for Summer 2012.

    This looks absolutely beautiful on you, Muse! Not as opaque and loud as I originally thought–and that’s a good thing! It’s light enough but still bright and perfect for summer! Want!
