Chanel Wild Rose (119) Glossimer

The same day I lost my mind and bought the oddly pink Courtisane Glossimer I also went the opposite direction and got the very demure Wild Rose (no. 119). I hoped it would be along the same line as Summer Plum (#90), a color I love and actually finished two tubes since it came out. Summer Plum is a sheer and shimmery purple, very light with just enough pigment to keep things interesting. Wild Rose definitely looks this way in the tube and when swatched on my hand. However, on more pigmented lips like mine, the color just about disappears and becomes an almost clear shimmer. It's not that one doesn't need a sheer nude with shimmer to help perk up the face or a matte lipstick, but I hoped for something more exciting.

Bottom Line: I should have bought another Summer Plum instead.

Chanel Glossimer ($27) is Wild Rose and other colors can be found at most decent department stores and
