Chanel Glossimer in Spark
I am such a sucker with anything shot through with gold. If it has gold shimmer, chances are I will be smitten at first swatch. Spark is no different. It is a beautiful raspberry color with lots of gold shimmer. I am a lover of anything Chanel, but glossimers really are top notch glosses. They are not too sticky, just enough to last a little while on the lips. I do not expect lipglosses to last super long, so I do not judge them too harshly in that category. Spark was my very first glossimer, and with it, began a sure to be lifelong love affair. The color suits me whether I am tanned in the summer or pale in the winter. It manages to warm up my face and make me look very alive.
I have instilled upon it the much coveted title of Holy Grail (HG) item. In fact, this is my second tube, which is saying alot for a lipgloss fanatic such as myself. It pairs perfectly with my Nars Christina lipstick (and yes, I did buy it because it bears the same name as myself).
I was unable to get a swatch photo that was color accurate, so, since I did not want to post an inaccurate photo, I just left it out. I do believe Lina of The Beauty Look Book has a pretty good swatch if you would like to pop over there and take a look.
I think Spark would work for all but the very cool in tone. It works nicely with a subtle smoked eye for nighttime or a toned down face during the day.
Disclaimer: I bought this lipgloss with my own money.
