Chanel Happy Glossimer

Chanel Happy Glossimer (186) is one of several new jelly Glossimer Lipglosses that launched with the Chanel Summer 2014 Makeup Collection which will be available for a limited time.

I have to admit I adore the textures on these and they quite remind me of the Chanel Gloss Fluo De Chanel Brilliant Lip Shine which launched with the Chanel Les Pop Up de Chanel Collection a few years ago. But the problem is they are so expensive for such a sheer gloss 🙁

Chanel Happy Glossimer is a bright translucent shade of pink that adds a very, very subtle touch of pink to my lips. This is sort of a shade enhancing gloss as it adds glossiness and a hint of tint to your own natural lip color.

The jelly texture is divine as it doesn’t have the customary Glossimer formula. This is slightly thick but not tacky or sticky and still very comfortable to wear with a jelly or gel-like consistency. I find they are lightly hydrating but wear for shorter time at around two hours. I could be nuts but they kinda taste orange-y to me but the flavor quickly disappears after application!

If you don’t mind the sheerness you’re in lucky because these provide a nice glossy, natural look. However, don’t go crazy and grab all the shades as they all the same on my lips! Unfortunately I do think the near $30 price tag puts me off….I want a little more pigment for thirty bucks!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.
