Chanel Spring 2012: Glossimer in Bon Bon (73)
I have been on a Chanel kick lately, and so I picked up the Glossimer in Bon Bon (73) which was released with the Spring 2012 collection. Bon Bon is a peachy pink color with a golden luminescence, but without obvious glitter. It is quite sheer, but does add a glow to the lips because of the tiny gold shimmers. The effect is probably best when worn over a lipstick, but it is beautiful nonetheless. I also find that the gloss has just enough pigment to mute down a bright lip color.
I love the Glossimer formula, in fact I forgot just how much I love it! Back before I became obsessed with hoarding makeup I used to buy 2 new Glossimers every spring, one in a peachy shade and one in pink. Between those 2 colors I was good with any makeup look I was trying to create! (Oh, the simplicity of life back then!) The Glossimers are known for their comfortable, nonsticky texture and beautiful shimmers. Bon Bon is no exception.
The Chanel Glossimers retail for $29.50 and Bon Bon is available now at counters. What are some of your favorite Glossimers? I'm looking to add a few more to my collection!
