One more Chanel.I promise, I’ll review some other brand…tomorrow 😉

Chanel’s most popular lip-gloss, Glossimer, is rated 4.3/5 by 418 people on MakeupAlley.  In all honesty, I’m not sure I would give it such a high one. No matter how much I adore Chanel and the signature packaging, it surely can not make up for the quality of the product. I find Glossimer way to expensive for the sticky, shimmery-in-a-blah-way  texture.  However, if you like rather neutral glosses and don’t mind the stickiness, it might be worth a try as there are many nice shades!

I have it in Petit Peche #148, a very sheer subtle pink.

Would I repurchase? Hm… not so sure.

Have you tried Glossimer? 🙂

Dior Lip Maximizer review

If you’re into one-offs  (including one night stands), skip this one. It’s just too good for that.

What Dior says:

Dior Addict Lip Maximizer: Collagen active lip-gloss

Dior presents a revolutionary lip care system that boosts volume instantly and restructures in the long term, thanks to a unique blend of hyaluronic and marine-based fillers that smooth, moisturize and leave lips irresistibly plump. Apply under regular lipstick or gloss for volume and shine, or morning and night as a 15-day intensive cure. Its fresh mint-vanilla scent makes it even more addictive.

What I say:

I could sum it up in just one word: orgasmic.  It’s just that good. Why? Let’s see:

  • it’s Dior – do you seriously need more proof? ok…
  • very shiny but not over the top (doesn’t make you look like you’ve just eaten half of McDonalds)
  • visibly plumps up your lips
  • cooling effect is very comfy during summer, perhaps not so much when it’s cold outside though
  • such a cute packaging 🙂
  • one tube lasts me at least half a year, which is not so bad for around 25 €
  • it comes in a clear shade (apparently there is one more – ”Apricot”, which I haven’t come across yet)


Would I repurchase? Most definitely!
