Stylo Eyeshadow Fresh Effect Eyeshadows - pieces I knew in advance I would buy, I was also captured by Rouge Coco Shine in Pygmalion (#467, $34), the darker lipstick shown in the photo directly below. The lighter shade shown is Idylle. Both are limited editions.
On the other hand, Pygmalion captured my heart - and my wallet - instantly. Although it had a coral look in the tube in the store, it's really a bright warm pink. Chanel calls it raspberry, which has a cool connotation to me.
I took swatch photos in full, early-afternoon sun. I applied Pygmalion directly from the tube and started snapping in front of various green backdrops on my garden. It interests me that minor differences in the lighting produced significant differences in Pygmalion's color. In some photos, a slight coral hue did make an appearance. In others, it looked much like the warm pink my eyes saw or the medium pink that I see on my lips.
Chanel's L'Été Papillon de Chanel Collection for Summer 2013 just arrived at
Neiman Marcus Tysons Galleria, so it should be coming to a store near
you very soon. I just checked, and I don't see it at Chanel's Web site yet.
P.S. As with the original formula of Rouge Coco Shine, the shine disappears long before the color.
