Today’s post will be about my 3 favorite glosses (as noted in the title). Granted, my “favorites collection” is quite small – I think I owe it to myself to buy glosses sparingly since Chanel glosses are $28.50 a pop. Normally, I don’t wear anything on my lips except for chapstick, which I put on lightly because I hate that thick, filmy texture most lip products leave behind. Also, I’ve been convinced in the past (through bad experiences) that lip products make my lips peel.
And, you guessed right. I’ve placed my cherished glosses in a bowl that my mom has no idea I’m using. It’s not a super cheap bowl, but I figured no one would miss it. It’s a great way to store something you want to also have on display!
Colors shown here: “Petite Peche,” “Rose Dilemma,” and “Nakkar.” Note that Chanel products are French; and, the names of their products reflect that.
I would say that Chanel products are pretty much always worth the price, but of course, not always. More than anything, with high-end products, I believe that it’s all about personal preference. For me, I like to have a few staple shades that I can go to without thinking about and wondering if it’s going to work or not. I find that buying products this way and investing in them turns out to be be more worthwhile than buying low-end ones over and over again – frequently throwing them away or being unable to return something that didn’t end up working. Basically, as always, it’s up to you on how you want to spend your residual income.
Chanel glosses are pigmented and are fairly long-wearing for a semi-sticky lip gloss. It’s also very shiny, but in a sophisticated way – not in a “wet looking” way. I’ve learned that glosses that slick on too easily are normally thin and non-sticky, which means in about 30 minutes you’ve eaten up or licked your gloss off.
Funnily enough, these are the only three shades of Chanel lip glosses I own (as of right now). As you can see, I have one pink, one peach, and on reddish pink. I wouldn’t wear any other color scheme so I wouldn’t waste my money on them; and, all three glosses posses a sense of practicality since I can wear them to work and when I’m out on the town.
To each their own!
