The next chapter in the brilliant Rouge Coco Shine story: Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Color Lipshine, an innovative formula with intensified pigments to take color and sheen to a new level of vibrancy. Sheer, shiny, color-rich shades are effortlessly chic, infinitely wearable. Hydratendre Complex softens and plumps lips for a healthier, fuller appearance.
I ordered all four new shades from Chanel's Web site. As I mentioned yesterday, they sat for about 10 days waiting for a good opportunity for phototograpy, which finally came this past weekend. Although I'm not overwhelmed with my swatch photos, here they are. I still have those little pink dots on my arm, and I'd hate to show you the bruises on the other side.
I swatched the shades on my arm in the same order they are shown in my photo at the top of this feature. I started with #93, Intime. It is a very light pink. Anyone with highly pigmented lips will find it nearly invisible. I can see it on my lips, but the effect is subtle. Next down is #94, Confident, which is as gorgeous as it gets. A brown-toned pink, it falls into my "love zone."
"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." This lipstick is available in a complete range of shades, from delicate beiges to berries, "with a hint of shimmer to enhance a glossy finish." This shimmer distinction is noteworthy because the finish of Rouge Coco Shine is lightly shiny - not metallic, reflective, glittery, or mirror-like. It gleams in a delightful way.
My experience with this lip color is that it loses its shine in an hour or two. The color is long-lasting, but the shine leaves after awhile. I apply lip gloss at that point to bring back the shine. My lips look fuller (and better) with shine. It's my preference.
You can find all four Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshines from the Collection États Poétiques for Fall 2014 at Chanel's Web site and at Chanel Counters (everywhere, I hope). I think you need at least one.
Now, after a long day at work and a trip to PT after, I'm off to bed! I hope to snuggle up with Charlie and relax.
