Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick Swatches...Be Still My Beating Heart



Yesterday whilst looking through Myer i remembered that Chanel had a new lipstick collection for release. I then went to the Chanel counter and found them. I cannot begin to explain what i felt when i was swatching these lipsticks. It was like after 30 years of searching for the perfect lip product...I found it! I actually think i'd like every shade in this collection.

What i love

  • It's like a lip balm, lipgloss and lipstick all in one!
  • It is incredibly moisturising
  • The lipstick feels very comfortable to wear-it's not sticky
  • Very shiny- the photos in this post really do not give an accurate reflection of the shine
  • The lipstick is buildable, can either be applied lightly for sheer coverage or layered for a deeper color
  • The packaging is typical Chanel- luxurious and elegant

What i don't love

  • It is not long wearing- due to it's intense hydrating properties. But this is ok....Just reapply, you will want to!
  • It does have a faint rose scent which many lipsticks do have

The swatches on the lips look a little "blurry"- the camera was in focus, it may just be that these lipsticks don't photograph well.

Please go and have a look at these lipsticks at a counter near you. You will not appreciate how beautiful they are just from blog posts and swatches.

Australian residents can purchase these lipsticks from Myer or David Jones for $50AU. I can't find that these are available on the Nordstrom site (US) or Debenhams site (UK) as yet.

  2. I like my lips but don't want to draw attention to my mouth cuz of my damn teeth. If only straightening them didn't cost so much.
