Amorous is a gorgeous Plum-Berry fall shade for my NC42 skintone. Though it looks more of a deep intense Plum on my hand swatch but comes out slightly softer on lips. It’s a Satin finish lipstick which falls somewhere between Lustre & Amplified version from MAC. They are definitely more moisturising than Lustres but slightly less than Amplifieds. The texture is creamy which glides smoothly giving a semi matte finish but not as swift as Amplifieds. They have a tendency to dry down depending upon the shade intensity (not to an extent of making lips uncomfortable but slightly) with the wear progress. Nevertheless my well groomed dry lips love Satins. Make sure you don’t have that flakiness on the lips or else the formula will be difficult to handle. It doesn’t bleed or feather post wear & stays put well without any issues.
Amorous is highly pigmented & goes completely opaque with a single pass even on pigmented lips. It does washes out few females but is highly flattering on duskier tones. You may want to test the shade in stores to see how it comes against your skin tone. It stays for good 5 hours on me with slight fading in between meals & leaves behind a beautiful strong deep pinkish tint which stays good for another 1.5-2 hours. I love to top this up with a clear gloss for some added glossiness but it looks equally beautiful in semi matte finish. It dries out a bit with wear but not to an extent that my lips feel uncomfortable. Overall I would highly recommend this especially if you lean towards warm duskier scale, will make a superb fall shade.
- Smooth & Creamy texture.
- Pretty moisturising. (Not highly though)
- Glides smoothly & uniformly on lips.
- Highly pigmented.
- Long wearing.
- Nice vanilla fragrance.
- Makes a nice plummy fall shade especially for warmer duskier complexions.
- The shade might wash out some, recommended to try at store before purchasing.
- The formula tend to dry out a bit after few hours of wear (not to an uncomfortable extent though).
It’s a nice plum based deep fall shade though varies on skintones across. Amorous is a satin formula which means comes out as semi matte finish & is pretty moisturising with intense pigmentation & long wear time.
