Completing my short series featuring Chanel's Las Vegas de Chanel Collection, which was lauched exclusively at the Chanel de Bellagio Boutique, the Rouge Coco Shine in Brilliant ($32.50) offers color like my favorite gold lip glosses. It's gold, shiny, and sheer - the prefect complement to the rest of the Las Vegas de Chanel Collection.
Rouge Coco Shine is a beautiful, lasting, moisturizing, sheer, shiny lip color with an incredible lightweight texture. From Chanel..."Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine provides lasting moisturizing shine in a water-light texture. The formula glides on for quick and easy application, and a unique Hydratendre complex hydrates and softens lips, giving them a healthier and fuller appearance."
Brilliant is a shade unlike any other Rouge Coco Shine shade I own. It's gold. The other shades offer an expected lip color. Brilliant is also extremely sheer - more sheer, I think, than many of the Rouge Coco Shine shades. The only comparison I can make is to gold lip glosses.
I took my swatch photos in full sun. What you see is exactly what Brilliant offers - a sheer wash of shimmering gold color. Brilliant feels great on the lips, but doesn't offer much pigmentation. On my lips, with light-to-medium natural pigmentation, the gold is stunning. It's ultra-shiny and very pretty. I have enough natural rose in my lips to rock this shade.
I did not purchase the Precision Lip Definer in Vegas Gold. Now I wish I had. I'd love to see how it would enhance this Brilliant Rouge Coco Shine - brilliant in name and appearance.
