This weekend I literally ran to the Chanel counter to see the full collection of Chanel’s new Rouge Coco lipsticks. This hydrating, long-wearing formula launched worldwide last Thursday, and is slated to replace Rouge Hydrabase. There are actually 33 shades of Rouge Coco right now. As I understand it, 30 shades are permanent. Gardenia is exclusive to Neiman Marcus; Byzantin (not yet swatched) is exclusive to Saks, and Teheran (not yet swatched) is exclusive to Chanel.com. I believe the exclusive shades are limited edition.
Rouge Coco is $30, and has a vague “skincare” scent. They’re also distinctly more sheer than they looked in my lip-brush, “teaser” swatches. Many of these shades were quite sheer in a single swipe, but definitely layerable (and I photographed layered swatches for best representation of the color). That’s Vanessa Paradis in the promotional shot, wearing Mademoiselle.
Perle is a shimmery soft mauve. Cashemere is peach-brown. Beige Felin is a slightly rosy brown (and made a great nude on a medium-dark, olive-toned sales associate). Secret is a slightly rosier brown. Egerie is bright, warm, coral pink (more universal than Chris & Tell, perhaps). La Pausa is shimmery orange. Organdi Rose is shimmery mauve rose. Camelia is also shimmery mauvey rose, but it’s brighter and rosier. Mademoiselle is muted rose, and gorgeous. Satin is similar but brighter, redder. Legende is a shimmery violet-pink. Muse is brown with a hint of rose. Ruban Rose is a shimmery, soft peached pink. Gardenia is rose-pink. Orchidee is red rose. Rouge Orage is an intense, bricked rose. Taffetas Rose is a cool, shimmery, violet-red. Cambon is flamenco cherry. Rose Comete is a shimmery soft violet pink. Gabrielle is true, showstopping red. Rivoli is plum red. Paris is very blue red. Bel Respiro is coral red with slight shimmer. Vendome is a warm (coral) red. Talisman is warm, browned coral-red. Lune Rousse is blood brick. Ballet Russe is very purple red. Rouge Noir is an almost brown purple red. Venise is a canyon pinked red-brown. Sycomore is shimmery, warm brown. Bois des Iles is shimmery warm pink red.
