Chanel Tanami Glossimer is a medium pink-coral with warm undertones as well as a jelly-like finish–no shimmer, glossy sheen. The summertime glosses are a “lighter, water-like” version of the traditional Glossimer formula. The texture was lighter, flatter, and definitely a little more slippery. It had semi-sheer color coverage–anobvious tint to the lips but didn’t hide the natural lip color–that was contented to wear, temperately hydrating, and lasted for an average three hours. Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $30.00) is darker, extra pigmented, warmer (85% similar). MAC Star Quality (LE, $20.00) is brighter, darker, more pigmented (85% similar). Giorgio Armani (P, $29.00) is darker, brighter, additional pigmented (85% similar).
Chanel Sirocco (604) Aqua Glossimer is a medium orange with the warm, yellow-red tones and a sprinkling of just fine gold sparkle. It had semi-opaque color payoff that went on lightly and didn’t seem to give emphasis to lip lines. The texture was lightweight, non-sticky, as well as moisturizing overall. This shade wore well for at least four hours on me. Chanel Calypso (LE, $30.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Eclectic Edge (LE, $15.00) is dimmer (95% similar). Burberry Coral (P, $29.00) is shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Becca Papaya/Topaz (P, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar).Guerlain Tangerine Vlam (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter, and deeper (90% similar). MAC Riviera Life (LE, $15.00) is shimmery (90% comparable). Sephora Fresh Mango (26) (P, $12.00) is the lighter (90% similar). Cle de Peau Deco (P, $48.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Ablaze (LE, $15.00) is brighter. Lancôme Orange Ore (P, $22.00) is shimmery, brighter, and warmer.
Chanel Rouge Desert (606) Aqua Glossimer is a slightly bright, intermediate pinky-red with the subtle, warmer suggestions and a jelly-like finish. The color smeared evenly and had semi-opaque coverage. I did notice a slight color seeped into lip lines and made them appear a bit darker, on the other hand I don’t think most would notice it on me (inspecting at a normal distance vs. me inspecting up-close!). The texture was non-sticky, smooth, and comfortable to wear. It wore fine for four hours and was lightly hydrating. Illamasqua Fume (DC, $22.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar).Sephora Cougar Red (27) (P, $12.00) is the lighter, cooler (90% similar). Josie Maran Always Cherry (P, $18.00) is the lighter, cooler (90% similar). The colors have a combination of jelly non-shimmers and a couple shimmers. The 3 profounder colors have better color payoff. The lighter shades provide the lips a barely there tint. If you like color to show up then they will simply be too sheer for you.
Chanel Adenium (612) Aqua Glossimer ($30.00 for the 0.19 fl. oz.) is a quiet, medium-dark pink with the subtle, cool undertones as well as a jelly-like finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on just evenly, but I felt like this completed my lips look darker in some places but not reliably across the board. The texture was quite smooth, easy to wear, and felt lightly hydrating overall. This shade put on for three hours on me. Maybelline Captivating Carnation (080) (P, $8.99) is the lighter, cooler (90% similar).
