Gold is my Nude


I can't wear nude lip anything! It makes me look quite ill in a crack-head sort of way. Utterly inelegant and perfectly wrong. The closest that I can comfortably get to nude lips is a pale but sparkly gold, and no one does this better than CHANEL.

Once in a while Chanel bring out a golden gloss and this year they wooed us with Sparkle D'or.







Strip away all the jazz-hands-coz-it-is-CHANEL and what you have is actually a clear gloss packed with golden shimmery bits. Now bring the jazz-hands back and add some table-top fireworks because the shimmer is ever so refined. No chunky gritty bits here! This gloss catches the light ever so nicely. Think pretty almost ethereal wowness.

This works well over nude lippies. It's like magickness and it works to bring the shades to life. I do this with //MAC's Shy Girl and //D&G's Nude.

I bought this in Selfridges. It is a Limited Edition Item...BEWARE!

  1. Oh how perfect for this season. The glitter doesn't look overbearing so subtle but gorgeous.

  2. Omg, GORGEOUS colour. I do have a similar one from a discontinued Shiseido one but the glitter hardly shows up!

    Limited edition just sounds so much better and I now feel the need to get one, fast. Oh-oh..
    Would love to see it on your lips Yasumi!

  3. It looks so pretty and so simple! Golden shimmer in clear gloss! Sometimes less is more!

    Was just reminded of my Guerlain KissKiss lippie which is now discontinued, but it is a golden nude colour with lots of gold shimmers! I haven't work it for yonks. Will dig it out to wear! :D

  6. It looks pretty and very festive! I have Chanel's Galaxy, which is multicolored glitter in clear gloss... I'm looking forward to pulling it out for the holidays :D

    I'm like you, I usually just can't do nudes - but recently I finally found one I can wear! Burberry's 201, maybe you can check it out? Only took me 4 years to find it hahaha. :)

  9.  It's so hard to capture in a photo. I blame the lack of sunny weather here in London.
