We know that CHANEL’s Rouge Coco may be slightly old news (released in February) but it is extremely rare for us still be addicted to a product which is almost 6 months old. Rouge Coco has become a cult beauty classic just like the 2.55 has become a cult fashion classic. The highly pigmented lip colour is available in 33 shades which Coco would have worn herself and all of which sport wonderful names based on influential periods in her life, Mademoisselle, Paris and Cambon are to name but a few.
CHANEL chose to stick to classic and timeless packaging for this lipstick and as usual even holding it in your hand makes you feel like you are clutching pure luxury. The formula itself contains Hydratender complex which CHANEL claims gives ‘8 hour hydration from a single application’. Now though the colour may not last eight hours it certainly try’s its best, lasting a minimum of four hours without showing signs of fading.
In terms of the colour itself you couldn’t ask for more, giving good coverage and a strong colour even from just one swipe. We adore Perle which is wonderful fresh coral and a fantastic alternative to nude. The shade Mademoiselle is the perfect feminine pink but if the thought of splurging your cash on a lippie is turning you weak at the knees then we suggest you opt for Cambon, a classic red which will be the best investment you’ve made in a long while!
CHANEL Rouge Coco is priced at £21.50 and is available from Boots.
