The two new shades of Rouge Coco Shine ($32) from the Harmonie de Printemps Collection for Spring 2012 are a departure from their Rouge Coco Shine predecessors. They are extremely sheer - almost like tinted balm - and so pretty I had to have both.
Candeur (#68) is an extremely light, transparent pink. Flirt (#69) is a light peach. Both shades offer a prefect complement to spring makeup and fashion. The color trends for spring are pink and peach. You'll be ready for either tone with these sheer, gleaming beauties.
As I mentioned in the Blush Horizon de Chanel Soft Glow Blush feature below, I was challenged by today's steady rain, and I had to take my photos indoors. We expect to see sunshine tomorrow, so I'll be continuing to feature Chanel's new colors then, hopefully with better (lighter) photos. For now, my apologies. I wanted to start showing you the collection now, and Mother Nature isn't cooperating.
Candeur is shown at the top of my arm, with Flirt below it. You can see that Flirt offers much more color than Candeur. Candeur is an extremely sheer, peachy, nude pink in the tube. On my lips, with their natural light rose pigment, it's pink - extremely light pink. Flirt is a gorgeous peach shade in the tube and on my arm. Added to my natural lip tone, the shade is a knock-out pink-toned peach, lively and with much more color payoff than Candeur. Even with my cool-toned skin, the shade works perfectly. It's love.
Anyone who loves ultra-sheer, hydrating lip colors is going to swoon over the new Rouge Coco Shines for spring. I've been swooning for a day, and I doubt the lightheaded feeling will go away anytime soon. In fact, I'm plotting my purchase of a second Flirt. I wouldn't want to be left without one, and at the rate I apply creamy, luscious, hydrating lip products, I'll use up the one I have pretty quickly.
Check in with your Chanel representative or favorite sales associate to pre-order or purchase these lovely harbingers of spring. The spring collection is arriving now at stores throughout the country.
