- Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Lip Shine in Gourmandise (#76, $32.50), which is shown at the top of this feature
- Two limited-edition shades of Aqualumière Lip Gloss ($27): French Toffee (#83) and Friandise (#82)
I took swatch photos of the lip colors in full noontime sunshine outside the store - not an ideal way to get swatch photos. I swatched Gourmandise at the top of my arm, French Toffee in the middle, and Frianise at the bottom.
French Toffee is gold. On my skin, it shows its hint of toffee. It sparkles and shines, offering Chanel's usual heavenly look to top any lip color. The Aqualumière Lip Gloss that might knock your socks off - it did mine - is Friandise. I had to look up "friandise" to learn that it's a small sweet served as petits fours or desserts. Since the color is delicious, I think it's a great name. This peachy coral is perfect - even for me.
