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.

  1. Amy! Thanks for posting up these swatches and reviews! They’re really helpful, the photographs you take really are true to color and thats what i appreciate. I was going to skip Pampille but after your post I just had to buy it! 🙂

  2. First time to comment. I always love your reviews, Amy. I hope you do a review of the Rouge Coco Plumetis and the Coralline lip pencil. Been excited about them but they’re not available yet in my country.

    • Of course!! I’m going to do them soon! By the way, everyone needs Coralline–its so hard to find a good coral pencil!!

  3. I bought Pampille because I was looking for something that would add a bit of autumnal warmth to some of my Shine shades without being overly orange or brown in tone. When it arrived along with my other Chanel goodies, I was not in the least bit disappointed. A light and translucent peachy-pink tamed by a hint of beige, it glows without adding any overt sparkle and is particularly beautiful over Évasion. I also like it just on it’s own. I have medium rose lips and, when Pampille is applied, they take on a warm, muted rose color that is beautiful when worn with Prélude on the eyes. I just can’t find enough superlatives to describe Chanel’s incredible collection.

  4. I missed your blog so much.

  5. I wasn’t planning on picking up any lip products in this collection but between Amy’s review & Eileen’s comments I’m sold.

  6. the glosses are very pigmented but I recently tried sephora own lip glosses called glossy gloss they are amazing.
    chanel coralline reminds me of the NARS velvet gloss pencils.

    I can tell by the photos how pigmented chanel is because its very hard to find glosses like the swatches that actually show up on the lips.
