New & Pretty: two Chanel Rouge Coco Shines from the Collection Variation

Chanel Rouge Coco Shines from the Collection Variation
My favourite lipstick formula is most definitely Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine - I’m not a huge ‘lippie’ person because I always dread reapplication when I’m out and about. Some girls love a little zen moment in the bathroom touching up their makeup, but I really.. don’t. That’s how I fell in love with Rouge Coco Shine: a lot of the shades are quite natural and since the finish is semi-sheer, touch-ups with those shades can easily be done without a mirror. Sounds like the lipstick jackpot to me! Chanel’s releasing a whole bunch of new lipsticks this month in a lot of different colours (suitable named the Collection Variation), including 6 Rouge Coco Shines of which 5 will stay in the permanent collection.

I have two of the new permanent shades to show you: Satisfaction, a nude shade with a faint hint of peach and Emotion, a pretty plum colour that turns a little more red on my lips than in the swatch. Both shades are very creamy as any Coco Shine always is, which is extremely pleasant on the lips and probably a formula anyone who’s usually not too keen on lipsticks would like. I’m on your team! Both of these have more pigment in them than most of the Coco Shines I’ve tried, but luckily that doesn’t take away from the ease of wearing these.

Satisfaction is about as ‘beige nude-y’ as I’d comfortably go, true nudes can be so tricky to sport! This one is an easy daily lipstick to carry around in your purse - I reapply this one every few hours or after a meal/drink without a mirror. Small round of applause for the queen of lipstick smudging! Emotion is a completely different type of shade, this wouldn’t be able to wash anyone out.. ever. It’s a gorgeous deep red plum shade with a huge amount of shine. This is definitely a very pigmented Coco Shine and sorry girls, but for this one you will need a mirror to touch up.

The new lipstick shades from the Collection Variation can be found in stores now. Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks retail for €32.00/£24.00/$35.00.
