I got this gloss as one of my birthday gifts. I love Chanel makeup, so I was very delighted to get this. It is advertised as a perfrect hybrid of lipstick and lipgloss–something that gives you the shine and the full opaque color. The color payoff of this product is truly wonderful–opaque and full coverage with just one or two swipes. It is not super shiny, but will give you enough glossiness to make the lips appear fuller, healthier and more moist. The color lasts for about an hour or so and the shine lasts for about two hours. The gloss is a little sticky and a little tacky and has a very subtle rosy smell.
As you might have guessed from the picture, the packaging is pure luxury–sleek black metal case with a golden clip cap, on which the legendary Chanel logo is engraved in slightly lighter gold.
