Chanel Rouge Coco Shine and Chanel Rouge Coco lipsticks

When I was sitting my exams a few months ago I was basically spending all day trapped inside studying,  so to prevent myself from going insane I would go uptown and buy a little treat.  So weeks of study leave resulted in three Chanel lipsticks and oodles of baked goodies.  After hours of browsing online looking at swatches I chose two Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks in Fetiche and Bel-Ami,  and a Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in Rivoli,  and just for reference both these lipsticks are currently £23.

Scottish sunlight at its best has given my pictures a lovely blue tinge and seems to have washed out the colour slightly.

Fetiche

Fetiche is a pinky shade with mauve undertones,  it has the signature glossy sheen and ever so slight shimmer to it that made my lips look fuller.  The Coco Shine formula is emollient based so glides on easily,  but unfortunately wears off within 2 hours usually and will also be used up faster than a traditional lipstick.  This shade is perfect for a daytime pick me up and is really quite a delicate colour so gets 7/10.

Bel-Ami

Bel-Ami was a brown based berry shade with the same sheen and shimmer.  With the emollient base it also only lasted 2 hours,  but it was a slightly deeper colour so left me with a staining that I quite liked so I didn’t have to be contantly applying it.  This lipstick get 7/10 again and I would probably purchase it again.

Rivoli

This was my favourite shade,  it’s a cool burgundy brown colour that had a slight sheen to it and no shimmer.  It’s a little sheer because of its moisturising formula but it still had great colour payoff with no tugging.  I found it lasted about 4 hours on me and even when it did wear off it wore off evenly so looked a bit like a lipstain.  This is only really appropriate for wearing at night but I feel it’s “my shade”  so for that I’m giving it 8/10 .
