What it is: Rouge Coco's were created as an interpretation of Chanel's rich life and legacy. They are described as a "lightweight lip color that glides on for easy application". They claimed to be moisturizing, featuring a "Hydratendre complex to soften, soothe and condition lips- even boosting their ability to hold in moisture".
Packaging: CHANEL represents luxury and therefore their packaging is sophisticated and luxurious. Rouge Coco Lipsticks are designed in a black, slim tube with a gold ring surrounding the tube at the middle. At the top of the lipstick the C's are printed in white. If you have smelled or applied Chanel products, you will know that there is a noticeable scent of roses. I honestly love the way Chanel products smell so the scent has never been a problem for me.
Verdict: The color payoff I get from Rouge Coco's is always opaque and even. They glide onto my lips effortlessly and feel so comfortable. My lips are on the normal side of hydration but can get dry if a product reacts to them or if it simply is not moisturizing and dry. I do not find Rouge Coco's to be the most moisturizing lip stick out there but it is one of the most comfortable and weightless lip colors I have tried. The lasting power on these are between three to four hours of wear. I appreciate that the lip color wears off evenly, not leaving noticeable patches on some parts of my lips. Because the color is lightweight, adding a lip gloss really enhances the color without making it look goopey. The color selection CHANEL carries seems to be daytime and work time appropriate. They carry many shades of red which is lovely because red can be worn in many ways. For every skin color there should be a perfect red.
Venise #26 is one of my favorite lip colors for its versatility. It is a soft red with plum and a bit of brown. There is no shimmer or pearl to it, leaving a creamy finish. I love this shade because it really brightens my face by giving a bit more of a soft deeper color.
Etole #80 has become a quick an easy everyday color. It is a soft plum with a bit of pink and brown. I do notice it has a bit of shimmer, but nothing too noticeable. The shimmer does not not intervene with the softness of the formula.
