Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes No 168 Désir

Oh my! What a bright color this is... on the tube, at least. Désir appears to be bright pink on the verge of fuchsia with pink and silver microglitter. Something you'd find in a disco queen's makeup bag. 

However, it looks softer once applied on the lip - the base becomes sheer... it's the shimmer that stands out and makes this gloss unique.

You can wear this with or without a lipstick base because for a gloss, its pigmented enough. As always, the formula lasts longer than any other brand of gloss I've worn.

Unlike the other Lèvres Scintillantes I've used, this feels a little bit gritty but I can live with it.

Bottomline, this line is something you have to have from Chanel. But this specific color, is more of a nice to have rather than an essential. There are other colors I prefer over this.

Désir is part of the 2012 Roses Ultimes De Chanel collection and based on the Chanel website, it looks like this is still available.
