The latest release from Chanel cosmetics, Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks are lightweight, sheer lip colors which melt as soon as swiped over your lips giving it a wet looking, shiny finish.
I tried all the colors which appealed to me the most, wanting to decide on which (1) shade to get. Unfortunately for my wallet, I liked Biarritz, Boy and Romance very, VERY much I couldn't just leave them there. I had to take them home! xD
Compared to Rouge Allure and Rouge Coco lipsticks, Rouge Coco Shine is housed in slimmer tubes which contain 3 grams of product. According to their website, these babies can last up to 8 hours of wear, but thats not the case with me as I only get 2-3 hours, then I need to reapply it. That makes me confident about finishing these lipsticks. I'm not sure if thats a good thing. ;)
42 Biarritz (coppery beige), 54 Boy (rosy pink) and 55 Romance (bright pink) - all shades have very light micro shimmer which is undetectable on the lips.
The formula for Rouge Coco Shine is buttery smooth, balm-like and very lightweight, however, even if it feels hydrating, there were times wherein my lips became dehydrated while wearing Romance. So I still recommend applying lip balm or essence underneath the Rouge Coco Shine's. Pigmentation varies from very light beiges to striking reds.
Local price is a whopping Php1,850 (approx. USD42) and no, I did not get any gifts with purchase. In fact, I've never received any GWP from any local Chanel counter. hmm... :\
The Chanel website says there are 18 shades, but there are 25 shades available in Manila. *confused*
I posted this photo on my Facebook page and a lot of lovelies "liked" it as expected. But one high school friend commented about my successive makeup posts which made me laugh. I dont think HE knows I'm a beauty blogger. ^_~
