Rouge Coco Shines. CHANEL Spring 2011

In keeping with Spring and the fresh new season, CHANEL has released their latest edition to the Rouge Coco family. A formulation so modern yet classic at the same time. The Rouge Coco Shine is a hydrating lip shine. It is said to combine the benefits of a lip moisturizing product and a slight pigmentation as that of a lipstick.

Here are swatches of the four shades I have so far:

From L.-R. : 59 Elise, 54 Boy, 49 Escale and 48 Evasion. (in Natural Sunlight)

59 Elise is a sheer berry tone, 54 Boy is a sheer peach pink, 49 Escale is a sheer pink and 48 Evasion is a sheer true peach.

54 Boy and 49 Escale (which is an exclusive of HoltRenfrew Canada) are very similar to each other. The Escala on the bullet looking more of a cool toned peach while Boy on the bullet looks like a muted mauve pink. Both give almost identical pigmentation or suggestion of on the lips. They are my two favourites of the bunch. They come the most flattering to my skin tone.

59 Elise is a Limited shade as well- this of the bunch giving off the most color pigmentation- being a berry shade- looks absolutely amazing with CHANEL's Spring 2011 Quad on the eyes.

Each one imparts a flattering sheer pigment to the lip, with extreme hydration. They may also be layered one over the other- to customize the tint desired. I extremely like this formulation especially for daily use, for women at work or on the go. They are all extremely wearable and extremely non-high maintenance lip products. If there was a downside to the product, it is that they need to be replied constantly as they are not of heavy pigmentation and consistency- they do wear quite easily. Yet I feel that the positives of this product definitely outweigh one negative.

ROUGE COCO SHINES have definitely set the standard for easy to wear, moisturized, polished lips. Classic yet Modern.
