New products from Chanel – Chanel Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating Lip Colour # 402 Adrienne
Today we’re going to speak about Chanel lipstick.
Frankly speaking, it’s stopped to be a new product since many of you tried it. But I couldn’t choose the colour and spent hours wandering near the stand. But having tried the lipstick once, I finally decided to buy one of the lightest shades of the lipstick, Adrienne.
The lipstick case is simple and laconic and I like that it doesn’t get dirty or scratched in the bag. The shade of the lipstick appeals to me as well, though the colour is quite unusual for me. I can say it’s a warm beige shade with a bit of pink, which can vary a little due to the different light. The lipstick has a touch of shimmer, but it can hardly be seen at the swatch, and on your lips you can’t make it out at all.
Such light shades of lipsticks tend to slide into fine lines on your lips or give lifeless colour, but Chanel Rouge Coco is a great exception. It applies true to the actual lipstick colour, gives no feathering or bleeding and doesn’t gather in white lines. The lipstick is ideal to apply!
The whole set of these lipsticks is weightless and comfortable on your lips. One swipe may not conceal your lips’ natural pigment, but it’s quite easy to apply several swipes. On the swatch to the left there is only one swipe of the lipstick and to the right you can see the result of several swipes.
I can’t say it is a long-lasting lipstick, as it fades and soaks into your lips in three hours. But there are another lipstick shades which may have longer lasting power. My mother, for example, has the Rouge Coco in 428 Legende and she can get the whole working day wear with it.
On the other hand the lipstick feels exceptionally comfortable, doesn’t dry your lips out and the smell is good. While Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks smell differently. In spite of weightless lipstick texture and medium coverage, the lipstick is quite inexpensive. And, of course, this lipstick consumption is longer than Chanel matte lipsticks, but shorter than, for example, YSL Rouge Volupte Shine.
Let’s have a look at the swatches on my lips:
As for me the lipstick has only one drawback with outlining the lips shape. As I have irregular lip shape, I have to correct it and it’s difficult to do with this lipstick because of its emollient power. But I’ve chosen a lip liner which easily blends with the colour of my lipstick and now everything is perfect for me. I like wearing this lipstick during sunny summer days!
