Chanel used to be one of my favourite brands,the lipsticks being the standouts. Over the last year, as new brands have come along, I have been less impressed with Chanel so when I heard that the Rouge Coco (£21) was launching I straight away went out and bought two lipsticks in the hope that these would give me renewed faith in the brand.
Amidst the extremely glowing reviews I have left writing mine as I felt like I was missing something, but I now have to concede that these are a bit of a let down for me. They are pigmented and have a really nice range of shades but I find the formula drying, and not comfortable. I found that with both the shades I have they migrated into the little lines of my lips after a while and made the area look dehydrated.
I got Muse (slightly copper toned pinky rose) and Perle (sheer pinky-beige). Both have a luminous finish.
Swatch: Left is Muse, Right is Perle
I’m honestly surprised that these aren’t working for me, I do wonder if its just the shades I got, let me know if you have experienced the same thing. I have not given up though, I’m going to order a RBR Shimmering Luxe Balm (from Zuneta.com) and try this under the Chanel and see if I can get them to work for me as I do really like the colours.
Just to note that as with other Chanel lipsticks these are scented.
