Chanel says: ROUGE COCO dresses the lips in an easy and self-evident daily beauty step.
Thanks to its soft, creamy texture and its luxurious, timeless packaging, it is the confidante of each moment of a woman’s life, finding its natural place in the handbags of women today.
The new ROUGE COCO formula combines hydration and comfort. Created by CHANEL, the Hydratender complex delivers 8-hour hydration with a single application. The choice of pigments with an utmost quality optimizes the formula’s comfort.
ROUGE COCO offers a satiny and luminous makeup result. Faithful to its black and gold codes, ROUGE COCO comes in a new metal case, with a contemporary and timeless design. The elegant and luminous shades of the range are easy to wear and use in your own, individual way, according to your mood. From legendary sites to favorite pieces of jewelry, from passions to symbols, their names recount the private background of Coco Chanel.
A classic has never expressed itself this freely.
“ROUGE COCO allows all women to discover, or rediscover, the pleasure of lipstick.” Peter Philips
The Product: $30 USD/$50 CAD.
Mademoiselle is the colour worn by Vanessa Paradis when Rouge Coco’s first debuted in 2010. It is the colour in the permanent collection, it looks different on everyone, which is interesting. It smells like Vanilla, Fresh Raspberries and Roses. Its a medium pink with brown undertones.
It’s a fairly hydrating lipstick, but I prefer it with a gloss on top after about 4 hours as my lips are fairly dry and peel, so if that sounds like you, keep a gloss handy!
The Packaging: There is a white Chanel logo on the top, and it is embossed on the inside of the cap also. It makes a nice click noise when you close it too, not a loud one that will make people look around and say “what was that?” Apparently, engineers spent hours snapping lipstick tubes until they got just the right click. It’s so simple and a weird luxury to have in a lipstick. It is in metal casing, done so women feel a fresh sensation when they grab it in their purse. The attention to detail with the physical tube is outstanding. Further, as you can tell by my pictures, everything is shiny. even the box that the tube came in reflects everything near it, so below you have a great shot of the side of my head and a few fingers.
The Review: A
If it was more hydrating to my extremely dry lips, it would be an A+, but it is otherwise a gorgeous colour that is only clear that you’re wearing lipstick in some lights. It is creamy, hydrating and lasts for 4-6 hours.
