Chanel Mica Glossimer Review, Photos and Swatches!

Chanel Mica Glossimer Lipgloss

Chanel Mica Glossimer is a very sheer pink with fine bright pink, purple and green sparkles. It reminds me a little bit of MAC Like Venus Dazzleglass, but it's more subtle and warm. 

Even though the formula is very glittery, it's not at all over-the-top. The glitters are so fine, that it doesn't scream glitter and it catches the sunlight beautifully. I'm a fan of anything that glistens (with the exception of MAC Dazzleglasses - hate the formula), so this was a winner for me. The color is sheer, but can be built easily. When worn alone, it's not at all drying to my lips - in fact, it's fairly moisturizing. It's a great shade to layer over any peach, beige or pink lipstick.
"Gorgeous shimmer and a high-shine glow is delivered effortlessly to lips with just one stroke of this best-selling lip gloss. A wide range of shades, from sheer and natural to sparkling and rich, look beautiful on their own, or over your favorite lipstick. Equally beautiful: the conditioning formula's comfort and long wear."
Chanel Glossimers may be used over your favorite lipstick formula to enhance shimmer and high-shine glow, or on its own for an ultra-glossy and comfortably hydrated result.

My favorite combo right now is a thin layer of MAC Creme Cup with Mica on top.
