Chanel Rouge Coco

Chanel's Rouge Coco has re-invented their iconic lipstick. Global Creative Director of Makeup, Peter Philips, has brought it into modern times and made a beauty.

A quote from Philips:
“Rouge Coco fascinates me, because I’ve never seen a texture this comfortable and easy to apply. It’s the ready-to-wear lipstick. Just one sweep over the lips colours them and covers them in a melt-away balm … I like the idea that women from the gloss generation, who are afraid of lipstick, can return to this essentially feminine beauty step with Rouge Coco.”

There is no dryness in this formula. It feels wonderful on, and has meadowfoam oil for moisture. It stays very creamy, lasts pretty long and has good pigment. The shades I have are on the lighter side, and while not matte , do not have much simmer. Just a hint of pearl.

The redesign goes down right to the case which is now in metal, and they tested and retested to get the perfect" click " when capping the case.

Many original, older shades remain but a new palette is part of the line as well. It's a large collection , so you are bound to like at least one.

My shades shown are La Pausa, a light peachy coral. This is the perfect starter coral because it's really far more peach. Next is Perle , which is a beige/pink and a great neutral. Both are very wearable and I've been wearing them a lot.

Rouge Coco launches on Feb. 25 and will retail for $ 30.00
