Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer Calypso was released as part of the Summertime de Chanel 2013 makeup collection.  It's a bright juicy orange with fine gold shimmer sparkling throughout.  The color seemed a bit too bright for me at that time, and I don't remember if I even swatched it - I might have - but I certainly didn't buy it then.  This year, though, I seem to be a lot more enthusiastic about trying out brighter colors, and when I saw this still available at Izzy's, I had to get it before it disappeared forever!  Scroll on for more photos.

Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Calypso is a bright orange in the tube with visible gold shimmer mixed in.  This is a gloss, though, and the bright orange tones down to a sheerer pop of orange on the skin/lips.  The shimmer is not very prominent on the lips and adds more of a depth and shine to the color rather than a chunky glittery effect.  The natural dark and uneven pigmentation of my lips does reduce the color payoff of the gloss quite a bit, but this definitely gives a wash of orange on the lips.  On lighter/clearer lips, this would show up much better than it does on me.

Calypso is one of my favorite glosses from Chanel.  I have no idea why I waited until it disappeared from almost everywhere before deciding that I need this in my life!  This is one of the most wearable versions of orange I have come across, and I am pretty sure it would look lovely on any skin tone.  Use it on it's own the way I have for a more casual, easy wash of color or layer it over a lipliner or lipstick to get a truly bright orange.  This gloss goes straight into my list of Chanel must-have's..and must-have-backups list too :D
