Chanel  Levres Scintillantes Glossimer - Wild Rose (119)

I am a bit of an impulsive shopper, and the fact that I do most of my shopping online and at odd hours of the night just adds to the problem.  I always find ways to justify the purchases too, and my most abused explanation is "I won't find this in India!"  It's like I have to build a stockpile for when my makeup world ends and I have to go back to India - okay, just to clarify, we do get makeup in India, but we don't have much in terms of sales, and GWPs are almost nonexistent.  I would never, for instance, have got this cute little tube of Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Wild Rose that I scored from the Chanel website :D

Chanel Wild Rose

Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Wild Rose is a soft mauve-rose color with silver shimmer mixed in.  It is a little more pigmented than the average Chanel Glossimer, though still sheer because, well, it is a lipgloss.  The shimmer is a lot more prominent in the tube than on the lips - which to me is a good thing - but  it is visible up close and just adds to the glossy shiny effect.  The color will show up as a soft dusty rose on lips that aren't too pigmented, but mine are, so the effect is a little less obvious when used on its own.

 (I cheated a bit and used Givenchy Brun Createur to even out my lips a bit :P :P)

I don't usually use lipglosses on their own, unless they are the superpigmented variety.  Chanel Wild Rose is moderately pigmented and I use it either over a lipliner or a lipstick.  In the photo above, I used a lipstick to just even out my lips a bit, so the color of the lipgloss shows through better, but if you have less pigmented lips you won't need this step.  Chanel makes some of the best lipglosses, imo, because of how moisturizing they feel on the lips and how nongloopy and relatively nonsticky they are.  Wild Rose is no exception, and I just love the natural effect it gives and how comfortable it feels on my lips.  Definitely one to try if you love the Chanel lipgloss formula.
