Chanel Rouge Coco Shine

May 17, 2012

A few months back, I received an iconic gift: a tube of Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in the shade Aventure. I was quite eager to use it straight away but I thought the rose hue and the shiny finish would be more fun and flirty in the spring time. (Don't ask me how I managed to wait!)

Needless to say it has been a long wait but it was definitively worth it!

I must say that this creme lip color is not your classic lipstick. It is more a cross between a lipstick and a lipgloss and it's precisely what makes it so pleasurable for the lips. I have always been a lipgloss kind a girl and just recently grew up to wear and appreciate lipstick. That's why I was glad to discover that Coco Shine has a glossy effect and a balm-like feel, which is particularly hydrating.

I am also fond of the warm shade of pink, which contains a hint of golden sparkle. The color is absolutely luscious in the tube but is rather on the sheer side once applied on the lips. It is an easily wearable pink and it will give your lips the perfect flush of color for the warmer months.

My experience with Aventure is memorable but not exactly long-lasting. In fact, the color usually lasts a good two hours but the shine fades away after only one hour. But I don't really mind since it gives me an excuse to pull away the sleek black tube from my bag!

If you shy away from pink lipstick, maybe you will want to try the soft coral En Vogue shade from the 2012 summer collection.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine is sold for $39CAD at Chanel cosmetic counters in major department stores.
