178 SONATE CHANEL LEVRES SCINTILLANTES GLOSSIMER - SWATCHES AND REVIEW

CHANEL LEVRES SCINTILLANTES GLOSSIMER in 178 SONATE is part of the SPRING NOTES DE PRINTEMPS collection. I love springtime and I am so ready for winter to be over (even though it just started, LOL). Chanel has created another beautiful collection for Spring "Spring makeup strikes a colourful chord with light, joyful notes. At the heart of the collection, a chorus of fresh, luminous reds sets the season’s tone for cheeks, lips and fingertips".

Chanel 178 SONATE glossimer is a bold and creamy reddish coral lipgloss. It doesn't contain any shimmer or glitter and it is semi-opaque. It deposits just enough color it can be worn alone or it can be worn over top of a lipstick or lip liner. Once applied it doesn't feel sticky and it didn't settle into my lips either. The glossimer currently retails for $29.50 USD and it contains .19 oz of product. I purchased mine from Nordstrom but it is also available in store and online at most major department stores, Chanel boutiques, and at Chanel.com.

Normally I shy away from anything as bold as this gloss but it really seemed to enhance my overall appearance. So I wore 178 Sonate all day yesterday at the mall (about 9-10 hours total) and it was very moisturizing. I didn't experience any dryness with my lips during or afterwards. It actually felt like it made my lips softer and more smooth. Initially the gloss lasted about three to four hours wear time (which is typical for most Chanel glossimers) before I had to reapply. Also as the glossimer dried it didn't leave behind any residue.

I have been going back and forth on this gloss but I think I'm going to take a chance based on your review. :) We have similar coloring and I too shy away from bold lip colors but this one just looks sooo pretty. It looks great on you so I think I'm going to hit that "buy" button this morning.

Thanks for the review and the shove from 'maybe' to 'definitely'!
