Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Giggle - Swatches & Review

Chanel is currently repromoting the Glossimer Giggle (#46) as part of their Fall line up. From pictures,  the other two Glossimers - Braise (#158) and Pampille (#156) come off as being very sheer, and I can see why Chanel felt the need to add a more full-bodied gloss - enter Giggle. Giggle is a beautiful plum pink with brown undertones that is well pigmented and has no traces of shimmer. I, personally, have owned Giggle for some time and it is one of my most favored Glossimers perfect for the crisp fall air.

I think this swatch is a little deceptive and you can see it looks more plummy and less orangey on my lips vs. arm
I'm running low on Giggle and am happy that it is part of their permanent line so I don't have to worry about living without it. I think Giggle is warranted of the repromotion and given a second look to those that may not be aware of its beauty already.

Retails for $28.50 USD, can be found online at and because this is part of their permanent collection can be found in high-end department stores (Neiman's, Nordstroms, Bloomie's, etc.) already.

Chanel Glossimers are hand down my favorite glosses, what is yours?
