Chanel Satisfaction (89) Rouge Coco Shine
Chanel Satisfaction (89) Rouge Coco Shine

For spring, Chanel’s released four new shades of the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lip Colors ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) formula. The Rouge Coco Shine formula is supposed to have sheer color payoff paired with “lasting, moisturizing shine in a water-light texture.” Satisfaction and Boheme are permanent, while Mutine and Emotion are limited edition.

Chanel Satisfaction (89) Rouge Coco Shine ($35.00 for 0.10. oz.) is a light-medium, muted peach with hiunts of beige and warm undertones. It had semi-opaque color coverage, actually, which was surprising, as this formula is typically more barely-there. It has a soft shine and lasted three hours on me. It was slightly hydrating. Guerlain Galiane (15) (P, $51.00) is more opaque, slightly warmer. MAC Naked Bud (LE, $16.00) is warmer, sheerer. MAC Fleur d’Coral (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Pout (142) (LE, $30.00) is lighter, more matte. Maybelline Nude Lust (920) (P, $7.49) is lighter. Maybelline Blushing Beige (915) (P, $7.49) is lighter. MAC Luxe Natural (P, $22.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Mutine (90) Rouge Coco Shine ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) is soft, muted rose with a golden shimmer-sheen. It’s sheer, as described, and just seems to lighten the natural lip color and make it slightly pinker. The sheen and slight shimmer seemed to last for an hour and a half on me, so I wore it twice, and felt like it was lightly moisturizing over time. Revlon Pink Lemonade (P, $7.49) is lighter. Guerlain Beatrix (LE, $48.00) is darker. Dior Candide (P, $31.00) is slightly pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Boheme (91) Rouge Coco Shine ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium orange-coral with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had sheer color coverage that gave lips a stained-like appearance with a glossy shine. It wore three hours on me and was moderately hydrating. Too Faced Bon Bon (P, $21.00) is more opaque. Revlon Lover’s Coral (P, $7.99) is less glossy. Burberry Primrose Hill Pink (P, $30.00) is more opaque. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Emotion (92) Rouge Coco Shine ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, pinky-berry with cool undertones and a soft shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a translucent finish so the natural lip color would still come through. It wore well for almost four hours, and it was moderately hydrating while worn. MAC Commotion (LE, $20.00) is brighter, darker. Revlon Plum Velour (P, $7.99) is darker. Too Faced So Berry Sexy (P, $21.00) is more opaque. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Conquise (144) Rouge Allure Lip Colour
Chanel Conquise (144) Rouge Allure Lip Colour

For spring, Chanel’s released two new shades of the Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colors ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) formula. If you’re unfamiliar with this formula, it’s supposed to be “intense, long-wearing colour with full coverage and a satin finish.”

Chanel Conquise (144) Rouge Allure Lip Colour ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is softly muted, medium orange with a hint of rosiness and a soft shimmer. It had rich, opaque color coverage that didn’t look heavy and felt lightweight. It applied well and laid down even, smooth color. This shade wore well for four hours on me, and it was lightly moisturizing during that time. Tom Ford Beauty Sweet Spot (05) (LE, $49.00) is slightly darker. MAC Gotta Dash! (P, $17.00) is lighter. MAC Ravishing (P, $16.00) is a touch darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Rayonnante (145) Rouge Allure Lip Colour ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is brightened, pinky-plum with cool undertones and a luminous finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, so it didn’t deliver the “full coverage” as promised. The texture was lightly creamy with some slip, and it felt lightweight and comfortable to wear. It was lightly hydrating, and it lasted for four hours on me. Chanel Fougueuse (138) (P, $34.00) is brighter, pinker. Revlon Plum Velour (P, $7.99) is darker. Urban Decay Turn On (P, $22.00) is brighter. Too Faced So Berry Sexy (P, $21.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Cheri (61) Rouge Coco Lipstick
Chanel Cheri (61) Rouge Coco Lipstick

For spring, Chanel’s released two new shades of the Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colors ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) formula. This formula is supposed to have “full coverage finishes,” “lightweight” feel, and be hydrating. Cheri is permanent, but Irresistible is limited edition.

Chanel Cheri (61) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, rosy-peach with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff, but there was some translucency as you could see my lip freckle peeking through. It applied evenly overall, but you may get slight “lines” if you press your lips together; thankfully, they’re not noticeable from a normal viewing distance–only up-close. It managed to wear for three hours on me. Revlon Jungle Peach (LE, $7.99) is lighter. YSL Tender Peach (26) (P, $34.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Pout (142) (LE, $30.00) is lighter. YSL Corail Intuitive (15) (P, $34.00) is similar. Givenchy Beige Plume (102) (P, $36.00) is less glossy. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Irresistible (62) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark, pink-shimmered plum with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and it covered the lips fairly evenly with color. It lasted for three and a half hours, and it was lightly hydrating during that time. Urban Decay Rapture (P, $22.00) is darker. Chanel Ce Soir (P, $34.00) is warmer. Maybelline Yummy Plummy (P, $7.49) is less shimmery/glossy. MAC Craving (P, $16.00) is less shimmery/glossy.

Chanel Canaille (89) Joues Contraste Blush
Chanel Canaille (89) Joues Contraste Blush

Chanel Canaille (89) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark, slightly muted, orange-brown with a soft, satiny shimmer. MAC Pleasure Model (LE, $25.00) is lighter. MAC Bad Girl Gone Good (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. MAC Sweet As Cocoa (P, $21.00) is a bit darker. MAC Stylish Me (LE, $21.00) is less orange, browner. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The texture was incredibly soft, finely-milled, and silky without being powdery or dry. It had rich, true-to-pan color payoff that could be applied at full color coverage or built up in layers if you preferred a lesser intensity. The blush applied evenly, smoothly, and it was easy to blend out the color so that it looked natural and effortless on the skin. With the satin finish, it looked glowing and luminous on the skin without emphasizing pores. Canaille lasted for a full eight hours before I noticed slight fading along the top of the cheeks.

Chanel Vivacite (88) Joues Contraste Blush
Chanel Vivacite (88) Joues Contraste Blush

Chanel Vivacite (88) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a brightened, fuchsia-berry with cool, blue undertones and a satin-matte finish. There’s a barely-there sheen that becomes more noticeable when the blush is really buffed into the skin. Clinique Plum Pop (04) (P, $21.00)is lighter, more shimmery. Guerlain Cherry (02) (LE, $42.00) is a cream product. NARS Coeur Battant (LE, $29.00) is darker, brighter. NARS Angelika (P, $29.00) is slightly lighter, more muted, and has sparkle. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The texture of the blush feels very finely-milled, but it also seems somewhat dry, so it doesn’t stick to skin well unless you’ve used a primer, liquid/cream foundation, or have normal-to-oily skin (any of these gives the powder blush something to adhere to). Since it doesn’t adhere well, the color payoff is semi-opaque but not buildable to full color coverage. It blended decently, but I wish that it was more blendable, as a richer shade like this can be more challenging to apply and blend to an even, smooth layer of color as a result. Once on, the blush wore well for seven and a half hours before starting to fade.

Chanel Bliss (181) Glossimer
Chanel Bliss (181) Glossimer

Chanel Bliss (181) Glossimer ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a medium, pinky-coral with subtle gold shimmer. Applied, it looks much lighter and milkier with semi-opaque color coverage. It doesn’t even look sparkly! The color lasted for four hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Modest (P, $22.00) is lighter. MAC Lovingly Yours (P, $22.00) is lighter. MAC Be Nice (P, $22.00) is darker. Bobbi Brown Nectar (LE, $24.00) is very similar. MAC Nectarsweet (LE, $20.00) is sheerer. MAC Persistent Peach (P, $19.50) is lighter, more opaque. See comparison swatches.

Chanel Tocade (182) Glossimer ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, fuchsia-berry with cool undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, but the gloss didn’t apply as evenly as desired–it looked a little splotchy, though thankfully it wasn’t too noticeable from afar. It was comfortable wear, mostly non-sticky, lightly hydrating, and lasted for five hours. MAC Fashion Perk (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, more muted, warmer. Milani Ravish Raspberry (06) (P, $5.49) is cooler-toned, brighter. Giorgio Armani #523 (P, $29.00) is more opaque, brighter. NARS Mexican Rose (P, $24.00) is more muted. NARS Penny Arcade (LE, $26.00) is slightly darker. MAC Colour Saturation (LE, $20.00) is very similar. See comparison swatches.
