I plucked Chanel's Fortissimo from the drawer; it was lurking there in the dark and evading me for months already. It is the dark blue from the Blue Rhythm Collection by Chanel last year.
It looks like a fairly common dark blue with shimmer in the bottle BUT it is not so much so. Fortissimo is a crelly (more a jelly then a creme) with lit-from-within-shimmer! The first coat is not very pigmented and weirdly siropy, the second coat makes all the difference. The result is a glasslike dark blue with the blue shimmer.
The formula is very strange and like a siropy glue, you have to paint very slowly and allow drytime in between layers otherwise you'll end up with loads of bubbles........
