Chanel Ocean Shimmer, Seashell, Rose Sauvage and Daydream Glossimers

Affiliate Links        

This spring season has brought us a wide selection of new lipgloss formulas and colors. Many lines are expanding their color options or developing new-improved formulas through mini-extension releases. The Revelation de Chanel collection focuses mainly on Glossimers ($29.50 each, Nordstrom.com) with some new colors mixed in with some repromotes. I purchased mine almost a month ago and have been using Rose Sauvage non-stop. The shades I bought:
  • Ocean Shimmer 171 is a clear gloss with delicate tiny sparkles suspended
  • Seashell 87 (repurchase) is a pale shimmery champagne pink
  • Rose Sauvage 172 is a soft rose pink shimmer
  • Daydream 174 is a rosey pink with metallic fuschia sparkle particles

The colors are typical of Chanel glossimers: naturally gorgeous, delicate with high shine. Daydream's shimmer is borderline glittery but the color blends out evenly and smoothly on the lips. Those who love Chanel Glossimers will love Rose Sauvage and Daydream. Seashell is a good natural staple I think is universally flattering on all skintones. Ocean Shimmer is definitely a pass for those who have clear gloss in their makeup wardrobe (I still caved).



Swatches:


I managed to get in lip swatches of Rose Sauvage and Daydream:



Comparisons to others show that you these are different from other Chanel glosses, however due to the sheerness, you can get a similar effect with other shades:



I love the color of Rose Sauvage. It's rosy enough to show up on my lips but still very natural. I love it layered over Perle Rouge Coco. Daydream is also lovely although might be too sparkly for some. Given all the new lipgloss offerings this season from Chanel, Dior, Guerlain and Armani you might feel a bit overwhelmed (like me). I am still waiting for Armani's Flash Lacquers to arrive at counters to test (although I usually do like Armani). I just tested out Guerlain's today instore briefly but haven't played extensively. I personally have a soft spot for Chanel and Dior glosses (they are my favorites) so I knew I couldn't go wrong with either. Those who have been waiting for all to arrive will be happy to know that most new gloss formulas should be available at counters to test now. Based on my testing, I feel all the glosses from Chanel, Dior, Guerlain and Armani are all excellent in quality and pigment. My suggestion is to look at the colors you are drawn to first since the formulas are all very similar (in my opinion).

  5. Oh I loooove Daydream on you Sabrina! I actually like both but Daydream seem to have more pigment which I love. I actually never tried the Glossimers ! I really love the pretty sparkle going on in these, it reminds me a bit of Dior, no?

  6. They are beautiful! I love the delicate shimmers. I've purchased about six of the new Dior...but I think I'm going to have to be sure to take a look at these....and the Armani!

  7. I have purchased three of the new Chanel's , two from Dior, two from Guerlain and am waiting to see the Armani's in person as I fear they may not be pigmented enough for my taste. Lip gloss is my favorite cosmetic and I already have way too many but any resistance drops away when I'm at the counter!
