Chanel Summer 2012 - Calypso & Holiday

Leave it to Chanel to put a little spring in my step today!

I made a completely random and unexpected trip to the Chanel counter while on lunch break from work the other day (these hour long lunches can prove to be quite dangerous with the mall in close proximity) and in less than a minute I walked out with these two beauties -

I got the Chanel Glossimer in "Calypso" and the nail polish in "Holiday", both from the Summer 2012 collection.

Calypso now becomes my first ever Chanel Glossimer, believe it or not. I've always been tempted by them but the colour and subtle shimmer of this gloss had me hooked. No brand does lipgloss shimmer as beautiful as Chanel. The shimmer isn't chunky - it's multidimensional and subtle. It only really can be spotted shimmering in the sunlight (like a Cullen! ha)

So perfect for summer! The nail polish in "Holiday" isn't a remarkable colour by any means but the formula is great (which isn't always the case with Chanel polishes) and the colour was unique to my collection... a warm burnt orange perfect to go with the gloss!

Here's the gloss by itself on my lips. The formula is wonderful. It's not super opaque but it's buildable enough to wear by itself. Not sticky, feels hydrating and has nice lasting power on the lips. 

If all Chanel Glossimers behave like this then I might be in some trouble :)

Hope your week is off to a great start.

PS: how good am I at being on a makeup buying ban? Epic fail.
