Chanel Crazy Fuchsia Glossimer 194 is one of the new glosses released as part of the Chanel Spring 2015 Makeup Collection Reverie Parisienne. When I first saw pictures of it online, I just knew I had to get it. It reminded me of Chanel Jalousie Glossimer. I thought Crazy Fuchsia was a more shimmery version of Jalousie. But after seeing it in person, I realized I was wrong. It was much darker and more pigmented than Jalousie. It still is such a beautiful color and I was glad I bought it.
The other Glossimer released in the collection is Fleur d’Eau. It is a bright orange which seems to have no shimmers at all. It’s more glossy than shimmery and seems like a much suited color for Spring and Summer. But even though Crazy Fuchsia doesn’t look like a Spring color, I would still use it on nights out.

COLLECTION RÊVERIE PARISIENNE
Beauty blooms with a captivating colour collection inspired by the springtime gardens of Paris. Vibrant corals lend balance to wistful, satiny shades of pink, creating an enchanting spectrum of shades that range from delicate to deep.
The Chanel Spring 2015 Makeup Collection Reverie Parisienne is now available in Manila. In fact, I immediately went to the nearest counter as soon as I received word. So, if you’re in the area, you might want to check out the collection at your nearest counter now. 😀
Chanel describes Glossimers:
Gorgeous shimmer and a high-shine glow is delivered effortlessly to lips with just one stroke of this best-selling lipgloss. A wide range of shades, from sheer and natural to sparkling and rich, look beautiful on their own, or over your favorite Chanel lipstick. Equally beautiful: the conditioning formula’s comfort, deep hydration and long wear.
☆ Use over your favorite lipstick formula to enhance shimmer and high-shine gloss.
☆ Can also be used on its own for an ultra-glossy and comfortably hydrated result.
Chanel Crazy Fuchsia Glossimer
Crazy Fuchsia Glossimer is a dark fuchsia with lots of silver micro shimmers. In the tube, I noticed that it leans more berry. This lipgloss has more of a shimmery finish than a glossy one. It is very much pigmented and is already opaque in just 1 layer. In the arm swatch below, I tried to sheer it out in the left swatch. But as you can see, it still is opaque even when the color is spread a bit.
The texture is very creamy and glossy, and it applies evenly and smoothly. It does not settle into lip lines and does not accentuate dry and flaky patches. Applying a lip liner is recommended because the gloss tends to bleed a bit. It has an opaque coverage, so it can be used even without a lipstick underneath. Even by those with pigmented lips like me. I also love that it’s not sticky. Chanel Crazy Fuchsia Glossimer feels very light on the lips, like I’m just wearing a liquid lipstick. But the finish is shiny, shimmery and glossy!
Chanel Crazy Fuchsia, even with its shimmers, is very moisturizing on my lips. But since it’s still a lipgloss, it only lasts about 3 to 4 hours on me. It does leave a bit of stain, but not enough not to warrant a fresh layer. After eating and drinking, reapplication is definitely a must.
It will look better paired with a tone-matching line of Le Crayon Levres for a lacquered result. Or, with a matching Rouge Allure or Rouge Allure Velvet for an intense lacquered result (vinyl effect) as it adds colour intensity and extends hold. But if you want just a single product on your lips, then you can definitely use it on its own. Just remember that it may bleed or feather. For this post, I used Chanel Crazy Fuschia lipgloss alone to capture its true color.
I love the packaging of Chanel Glossimers because it is transparent and I can see the gloss inside. I want to know when I’m about to run out of something, and this type of packaging definitely helps. It has a doe-foot applicator which dispenses the right amount of gloss enough for one application.
Would you believe? If it hadn’t been for this collection, I wouldn’t have known that I had been spelling the color incorrectly. Since my high school days! But I’m not alone in this. I had only found out today that because of how it’s pronounced, a lot of people also spell it as fuschia. Instead of fuchsia. 😉
Crazy Fuchsia Glossimer is such a gorgeous color. I love that it’s pigmented enough to be used alone. Will probably use it down to the last swipe. 😉
