CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine in Biarritz, Boy and Romance

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

42 Biarritz

54 Boy

55 Romance

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. ;)

Swatches:
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. ^_~


Happy Thursday!
♡,
G

  3. You should've gotten a GWP! Our local counters are super kuripot when it comes to GWPs. :(

    But those look pretty especially Boy. :)

  4. Hey Georgina, great haul. Can't just go home with one Coco Shine huh? ;) Just like me.

    Boy looks really sweet but probably won't show up on me. Enjoy your buys! Try layering lip liner underneath, it will last slightly longer.

  5. I have been lemming for these since they came out! I desperately want to try out "Boy" but I still have too many unfinished lippies. How do you manage your collection??

    I'm not sure if its the same in Manila but in KL, Chanel tracks your purchases and I receive regular updates in the mail for launches and events. Of course having the SA remember you is a bonus too cause mine usually throws in a few skincare/makeup samples when I visit (:

  7. They are all very lovely. No wonder you had to get all three. Boy is a color that I would use and like.

  10. G!!! I hope your wallet gets well soon doll LOL! Kidding. :P I should stay away from Chanel counters as the colors look ever so gorgeous.

    Thanks for the tempting swatches & review! xD

    And... you're right we never get anything from purchasing most of the time. Sigh... >.<

  17. Hi Georgina! I've never seen lipstick sticking out so far before, it looks funny. =)

    Guess who's turn it is to keep getting sick now? Yep, I have bronchitis. The cough is gross. I can't wait for June and steady temperatures.

  22. Thanks for the review! I've totally been wanting to try these and was hoping they'd be at the duty free shop at the airport. Romance is perfect for spring!

  29. I came across your blog and am quite happy that you love Chanel!:) I work with the Chanel PH team, and sorry if you / readers felt that way. We generally do not offer GWP's and as far as I know, this has been the direction early on. Samples are available every now and then though :) Some shades are specific to a country because Chanel makes sure shades suit the local market best. Thank you for your Chanel purchases and the awesome posts :) New follower here!:)

    P.S.
    Just in case you'd be interested, I have a post on my blog about Rouge Coco Shine :)
