My Take on Victoria’s Secret Amber Romance Shimmer Mist:
For a very long time, I was on the lookout for a shimmer mist/lotion since summer is here and no party attire is complete without some sparkle! Even though I’m reviewing Victoria’s Secret’s Shimmer Mist now, I have had it for almost 3 months. Now that I have used it for a couple of times already (most recent being yesterday), it’s the perfect time to review this one! The mist comes in the usual VS mist packaging, slender and classic. It’s a sturdy bottle; it only looks bulky, it’s actually light in weight and travel friendly.
Coming to the fragrance part, like I described in my previous post on VS Amber Romance EDT, the fragrance is insanely amazing. No wonder it’s the most sold fragrance of VS (I read online). It smells sort of musky and warm. The notes are amber and anglaise. When I spritz it on, it even smells like vanilla for a couple seconds. The fragrance is refreshing yet not at all overpowering.
It has golden micro shimmer particles which look totally gorgeous in the sunlight. The shimmer in it is not over the top, it’s kind of muted and subtle. My first concern when buying something with shimmer is that it shouldn’t cause any irritation or rash on my sensitive skin. Luckily, this one hasn’t caused any irritation yet. I usually spritz it a good 6-7 times to get the amount of shimmer I want and like and after that, the shimmer particles stay intact for almost an entire day. More so, the fragrance of the mist keeps lingering all through the day which is the best part about it. PS. I make sure to layer it with the body lotion from the same scent family to make the fragrance last as long as it does.
To sum this up, here are some positives and negatives:
Pros of Victoria’s Secret Amber Romance Shimmer Mist:
- Smells amazing.
- Aptly priced for the quantity and quality 😀 😀 😀
