Flecks of micro glitter swim about Chanel's Amour 166, but it's not in your face; it's reminiscent of a holographic formula. The light reflecting particles help to enhance the soft coral shade and when you put your lips together you don't feel any grittiness. I added Amour to my rotation a few months ago, but managed to let it slip through the cracks. It's not because I didn't love it - let's just say my attention span (or lack thereof) got the best of me.
Oh hey, what's over there?
Ultimately what drew me to buying Amour was the advertising. I just had to have the colour as seen on the model's lips. Don't you think it's amazing how well an advertising campaign can drive sales for a brand?
Touches of Spring, a whiff of the famous Chanel boucle jacket and that doggone bone, er, gloss tightly held between her teeth. It's mine, not yours!
That war or inner-monologue waged in my head until I decided to make it mine (too).
I don't get a strong coral hue on my lips thanks to the fact they're pretty pigmented - it's nothing a little foundation can't fix. Amour sticks around for a solid three hours, unless I decide to eat or drink. Then, I can most certainly expect the colour to fade away quickly.
Chanel's Glossimer is light, a tad sticky and easy to apply. Perfect for those days when you just need a little colour to brighten that smile of yours.
