Oh Chanel, why must you have the prettiest lip glosses on earth, but at prices I just can't afford. First it's the Glossimers and now this, the Waterlight glosses.



$25 for a lip gloss!? That's the price of my weekly grocery bill!

But then you're also buying the "Chanel" label.

The lipgloss looks awesome. I think that Envy likes them if I am not mistaken.

Yeah, I would really like to know where you get groceries, because my bill is like 100 bucks.. but anyway.. the thing with Chanel... I buy the makeup because I can't afford the purse. Pulling out that CC label in front of strangers, then applying, making sure the CCs are in plain view.. it's just a thrilling feeling. Almost makes me feel like a Hilton.

I agree with Trisha, there's definitely no competition going on with Chanel and MAC...completely different. Chanel's lip products are the best in texture and they do have really nice and wearable colors. IMO it's worth the price because I haven't found any glosses or lipsticks that even come close in quality.

I´ve been tempted too for a long while. the only high end lipgloss I have is Dior Addict (my mum got it for me) and it´s my fave gloss b/c the texture is smooth and silky (not sticky and sometimes grainy like MAC-although i love their colors!!), the smell is nice (I hate MAC´s smell) and the shimmer is great too.
maybe I´ll get my mum to buy me one *hehe* seems ridiculous to me to spend that much on a lipgloss.

Now, that's a good idea - getting your mum to get it for you!
I have the Dior Addict and agree that the smell is nicer (the MAC vanilla can get a bit too much sometimes), and the texture is lovely too!

are they scented because every french brand seems to put fragrance in their stuff, like dior's GROSS-smelling stuf?

i love the colors. i just can't afford them, either

Hi suzukigrrl, i know what you mean. $25 is a lot for a lipgloss. Have yuou thought about checking out ebay for the Chanel Lipgloss's you like. Ebay has tons of great brands and are considerably cheaper. I hope you manage to find a great bargain on ebay and mabe even get 2 lipglosses for the price of one!

They really don't seem to have a scent to me but someone else might say otherwise. I normally like the scents/smells of all makeup.
