IT WAS A NICE SHADE, AND LASTED LONG, A BIT TOO SPARKLY FOR ME THOUGH
I don't usually go for the French brands with their heavy fragrances and gold packaging, but I couldn't resist this one. The packaging is truly something unique. The gold tube slides into a clear dark blue plastic "house." You pull the tube in and out with a knob. The product is great too. It's feels light and smooth on the lips, yet lasts. Rose Parallele is a deep rose with salmon tones. It has shimmer, and reminds me of a pinker MAC "O." The scent is heavy and rosy, but not so annoying that I can't stand it. I paid around $15 at the Duty-Free shop in the Nice airport.
