Avant Premiere de Chanel……….A Sneaky Peek with Swatches!
Hope your all well. I just popped into my local Chanel to take a look at the new collection of lipsticks and nail colours based on the classic cinema. Both the lipsticks and nail colours are fabulous; (i really need yet another lipstick in my life)!
There are 8 new Rouge Coco Shines with 30% greater pigmentation and 6 new shades of Rouge Coco lipsticks.
I was given a tester card with 4 of the new shades and i am going to share them with you.
Rouge Coco Shine are the new version of Aqualumiére lip shines which give a very nice creamy water-like feel on the lips with a bit of slip. They are great for people with dry lips and are incredibly shiny, hence the name. They are not long wearing due to the watery like nature but do feel really nice when you wear them. The new ones have great intensity in colour and are worth checking out if your a fan of them. They are smaller in size than Rouge Coco and Rouge Allure lipsticks. 3gm/£24.00.
This is a deep plum/purple shade with a hint of micro shimmer. Great for people with olive skin tones or if you like the deeper shades. I personally would wear this shade in Autumn/Fall and it makes my teeth look white with its cool shade, so a real winner and very pigmented. More pics and swatches here.
79 Saga (Limited Edition)
This is gorgeous. A lovely pigmented salmon pink lip colour without shimmer. I can see this one selling out fast. It is ideal for fair toned skin. I love it and its going to be great for the summer and day wear. More pics and swatches here.
Chanel Rouge Coco Lipsticks.
Rouge Coco lipsticks are the new version of Rouge Hydrabase lipsticks and are slightly moisturizing but not as much so as Rouge Coco Shines or Rouge Allure lipsticks. That said; they have the longest staying power of all Chanel lipsticks, (Rouge Allure Velvet being the exception) and many others i have tried by high end makeup companies. I do think these are the best value for money because they last twice as long as Rouge Coco Shines and a third longer than Rouge Allure lipsticks; although, i do love them all for many different reasons. 3.5gm/ £25.00.
62 Monte Carlo
This is another lovely shade. It is a red with a coral undertone and lots of gold micro shimmer. I love sparkling lipsticks and i also really like a slight coral in my reds rather than the ‘in your face’ red, which i don’t suit and don’t have teeth white enough, to pull it off. This shade is very universal and thankfully, its cooler tone makes my teeth appear whiter than what they are. I am wearing it in my profile picture on twitter.
54 Le Baiser
A deeper warm toned pink. Another universal shade with no micro shimmer. I love this shade but sadly; its warm toned and makes my teeth look very yellow, so i am going to have to pass on it.
So, there you go. I love all 4 shades on this card and normally i never like all of them. To see description of all the new shades available and the matching 4 new shades of nail colours, check here.
Swatches on the left picture are from left to right, Rouge Coco Le Baiser and Monte-Carlo; Rouge Coco Shine Saga and Fiction.
I am sold on Saga in the Coco Lip Shine lipsticks and a number of the Rouge Coco lipsticks, which offer more universal shades to the collection. Very impressive from Chanel.
