Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick

Admittedly I don’t own a heap of Chanel products, primarily thanks to their price point (let’s not talk about bags though because we all know that Chanel bags are pure investment! #delusionaljustifications) but every now and then I feel the urge to splurge, and this was one of them~ I purchased the shade Unique because I wanted a shade I don’t typically wear a lot that I could save for special occasions.

The Chanel Rouge Coco Lipsticks are designed to be a combination of a lipstick and a lip gloss, and I’d say Chanel got pretty close with this one, application is great and the payoff is lovely.

It applies smoothly on the lips, great slip and leaves your lips with a decent amount of colour and shine. I think because of the shine there is a tendency for your hair to stick to it a little, but obviously nothing close to the stickiness of actual lip gloss. My lips kept hydrated and I didn’t feel the need to apply lip balm at all.

And I like the weight of the packaging, it feels like solid metal. I could easily drop this tube and not be worried in the slightest.

It does have the typical Chanel scent, which I’m not a huge fan of, but some people could be.

But my biggest gripe with this lipstick is the longevity. Maybe thanks to it’s sheerer nature it isn’t possible to last longer, but I was hoping for a bit more wear. I’m not too keen to constantly re-apply a $50 lipstick 🙁

Despite that con, I’d still be willing to purchase another two or three 😡 So far I don’t own any lipsticks that feels this lovely on my lips so I do recommend it if you have the extra cash to burn.

  1. I really love this colour on you! I have the same issue with longevity, but I’m yet to find a ‘creamy’ lipstick that lasts for very long – perhaps that’s the trade off! You have a great eye for colour 🙂

    • Aww thank you! I can never tell which colours suit me and which won’t @_@ So you telling me I have a good eye for colour is a real compliment <3 <3

  2. Omg love this colour on you HT! Also love your blooper pic, too cute!

    Chanel Rouge Coco Shines FTW 😀

    • Thanks HT XD You inspired me <3 <3

  3. That colour really suits you! I laughed so hard at your last pic. (:

    • Ahaha thank you so much~ I’m glad to put a smile on your face 😀

  4. Definitely suits you 🙂 I love Unique!

    • Aww thank you kindly 🙂 You all sure do know how to make a girl feel special 🙂

  5. That’s a gorgeous color and it really suits you! It a shame that it doesn’t last long though.

    • Aww thank you so much! I’m never confident when it comes to selecting lip colours <3 So I feel reassured 🙂

  6. What a pretty colour on you 🙂 99% of my FOTD pictures look like that… or much worse!

    • Thanks so much! Ahaha, I’m glad I’m not alone 🙂
