Chanel Glossimer in Pampille ($28.50 #156) (Levres Scintillantes Pampille) is a sheer soft, softly glimmered pink. The word “pampille” translates to “tassel,” which brings to mind a little flourish or extra. If you are in need of a Glossimer, Pampille is this season’s contribution to a legendary line of nicely textured, easy to wear lip glosses that make lips look fabulous. Liz is now the pleased owner of Pampille–she loves Glossimers and this is well inside anyone’s comfort zone of colors. I have no doubt that she’ll use it up in a few months. Enjoy the gloss, Liz!
You can see that Pampille fits well within the color theme of the Illusion D’Ombre collection–here, pictured with Coralline lip pencil and Rouge Coco Plumentis. You can see that the colors and tones will work well together.
Here are some swatches of the sheer Chanel Pampille with comparable Chanel Glossimer colors–Chanel Paillettes, Chanel Seashell and Chanel Star:
As you can see, Pampille is on the sheer side of the glossimer range. Here is Pampille on Liz (no lip liner or lipstick–applied directly on lips):
Pampille is another pleasant addition to Chanel’s glossimer family. It’s not an earth-shattering shade, but given that there is plenty of drama elsewhere in the Illusion D’Ombre release that may be all to the good.
