Chanel Celestial Lights Glossimers

May 15, 2009

Welcome to my blog and my first post featuring a review on Chanel’s Lumiéres Célestes Collection, released in May 2009. The collection consists of 2 new nail polishes and 8 new glossimers:

Glossimers ($27 USD):
Nebula #122 – medium cool pink with blue and violet shimmers
• Venus #124 – vibrant pink with gold shimmers
• Silex #126 – hot coral shimmer
• Météore #128 – complex mix of rose, copper, pink, brown
• Cosmos #129 – berry with reddish-brown sparkles
• Mica #131 – pale opalescent pink
• Mirage #132 – soft violet plum with pink tones
• Jupiter #134 – vibrant red

Nail Polishes ($23 USD):
• Cosmic Violine #497 – gorgeous burgundy plum brown shimmer
• Mica Rose #495 – soft sheer opalescent light shell pink
• Dazzling (repromote) – vibrant warm red
• Allegoria #331 (repromote) – neutral creamy light beige-pink

The glossimers in this collection are highly pigmented with intense sparkle-shimmer. I’m usually more into a natural shimmer, but these are fun for evening or going out. The two new nail polishes are gorgeous though. Cosmic Violine is a prettier version of the Holiday 2008 Haute Chocolat and lighter than Feu De Russie from their Russian Collection.
