I got this card of Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick some time ago when I did a Chanel.com order. I wish they’d give out these lipstick cards more… this is a great way to sample new color and product. You can get about 3-4 uses out of each shade (I was really layering for swatches on the arm and lips too!) and decide before you buy what color is best for you.
(L-R – Aventure, Liberte, Boy, Monte-Carlo)
All of the Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks are extremely hydrating and shiny. You can layer them up or add them on top of a lip liner to add more color, if you desire. Some are more pigmented than others. Like, Boy is the exact same color as my lips, so it glides on as more of a balm. That makes the price tag not worth it for me. But Monte-Carlo is a beautiful pop of color. Probably one of the more pigmented I’ve seen of the Rouge Coco Shines. Out of the four sampled here, I’m most likely to buy Monte-Carlo.
Liberte is my second favorite of this bunch, but I do have quite a bit like it already (ohh me and those lovely peachy shades!) so it was easier to pass on, and I really love the pink of Aventure. I don’t normally wear bubble gum pink, but this one is so subdued it would be really easy for anyone to pull off.
I’ve also reviewed the shade Biarritz from this line.
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks retail for $32 each and are currently available in store and online.
