I knew when I was purchasing it that it would be nearly clear - useful only to top lipstick and add remarkable shine - but I bought it anyhow. Chanel calls it sheer, shimmering pink, which is accurate. While the display shows three lip glosses, Allégorie is the only one that's a limited edition. The other two, Mystery and Intrigue, had not arrived. Both appear to be gorgeous.
My problem is how little comes to mind when I play with Allégorie. Unless you need a very light pink, beautifully sparking lip gloss, you'd be wise to spend your money on Star Dust Powder Blush or the new Harmonie du Soir Quadra Eye Shadow. There are some game changers in Chanel's Éclats du Soir de Chanel Holiday 2012 Collection. Sadly, Allégorie isn't one of them.
P.S. Because the work week will probably bring sunshine, I may have to take swatch photos at work outside the building. That's always a hoot.
