I was in the shopping mood for more lipsticks today so I made a trip to my favorite department stores, fully tested out the latest sheer lipsticks that seem to be the IT lipstick of the moment- including the revamped Dior Addict Lipsticks; Mac Sheen Supreme Lipsticks ; Estee Lauder’s Pure Color Crystal Lipsticks. In the end I still went back to Chanel and picked up a few more Chanel Rouge Coco Shine! I just think they are the best sheer lipsticks in the market – the formulation is just unbeatable. For a sheer lipstick, the color payoff is excellent after a few swipes. The finish is moist; juicy and watery in a subtle and elegant way, not as wet as lipglosses.
I have previously reviewed and swatched Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in
- Boy; Chance and Evasion here
- Liberte and Aventure here
The 2 newest addition to my Rouge Coco Shine Family are:
- 42 BIARRITZ
- 50 RIVAGE
If I could only wear one shade of lipsticks for the rest of my life – it would be the “my-lips-but-better” shade. Rouge Coco Shine in 50 RIVAGE meets all my requirements – a muted pink shade that brightens up my complexion, makes me look more healthy; energetic and youthful.
Chanel Rouge Coco in Biarritz is my first “fall lipstick” for this year. It looks more brown in the tube than how it translates on to my lips.The sheer formulation gives a soft caramel brown finish. I have a feeling I will reach for this lipstick the most in the next few months.
