When Jess from The Belle Lumiere made a public service announcement via twitter that Chanel Rouge Coco Shines were available on StrawberryNet- i was onto that, fast. Chanel Rouge Coco Shines are a beautiful lip product. I still haven't quite worked out if they are a lipstick, lip balm or lip gloss- they are really all of those products in one. They are still one of my most favorite lip products of 2011. I have previously swatched Boy and Evasion here.
I purchased three shades- Rebelle, Elise and Deauville. Jen has been begging me to wear a red lipstick, Rebelle is just that!
Rebelle is a red, perfect for someone like me who is scared of red. It can be applied lightly for a sheer red or more heavily for a deeper color.
Elise is a pretty berry shade. This also can be built for a sheer or deep color.
Deauville is your typical beige Tara color. A shade i feel "safe" with. Although i am starting to tire of neutrals. This is still a lovely lipstick.
It seems many bloggers have fallen in love with these lipsticks. I think mostly as they are a joy to wear on the lips. They remind me of a tinted lip balm, but with deeper pigmentation. I am especially going to love these now it is cold.
