Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Chance

Chanel recently released a new line of lip colors called ROUGE COCO SHINE Hydrating Sheer Lipshine. This brand new line contains 18 shades which range from light beige colors to deep berry hues. Chanel describes the Rouge Coco Shine formula as a moisturizing, high-shine lipstick with a lightweight texture.

I was in Nordstrom the other day for a back-to-mac lipstick when I got sidetracked at the Chanel makeup counter. The Rouge Coco line was out for display and I couldn't help but stop and swatch a couple shades. I immediately looked for the shade Boy in the line since that shade has been hyped up by beauty editors and bloggers alike. I bet some people will probably disagree with me, but I honestly do not see what the hype is all about. The color is okay, but it's nothing special in my book. However, a couple other colors definitely caught my eye. I tried out Chance, Aventure, and Evasion, and they were all pretty. I ended taking home Chance because it was my favorite of the three.

Containing only 0.1 oz and costing $32 a pop, this is an expensive lipstick. But then again you can't put a price on Chanel ;). The packaging is definitely luxe, with a sleek black case with gold detailing. I love pulling this out of my purse, Chanel is so elegant and timeless. The lipstick formula is great as well! It feels lightweight, almost like a lip balm, and applies very smoothly on the lips. The color itself is sheer, but it is definitely buildable to about medium coverage. I put about three layers on in my swatches to show the color.

I love how Chance looks bright and fresh while still looking natural on my lips. It is a beautiful color that is perfect for spring. The lipstick has a slight floral smell to it, but I am super sensitive to lipstick smells and this does not bother me at all. I hate it when lipstick tastes like soap or old perfume (yuck!). Anyways, Chance is a great product so if you are in Nordstrom, Saks, Neiman Marcus, etc. check out the colors in the Rouge Coco Shine collection. If you are looking for something more affordable, this may not be for you since there are many other great less expensive options out there (such as MAC and Revlon). But if you can splurge a little, treat yourself to one of these lipsticks cause they are really nice.
