Chanel Monte Carlo Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Monte Carlo Rouge Coco Shine ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a semi-sheer, pinked red with subtle pink shimmer. The Rouge Coco formula is designed to be a lightweight lipstick with high shine and a moisturizing base. Based on the description of the color range, it is expected to be sheerer rather than opaque.  (If you’re looking for something more opaque, Rouge Allures will be more up your alley.)

Chanel Beige Petale Le Vernis

Chanel Beige Petale Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is a sheer, barely beige tinted polish. Over my nails, it just neutralizes some of the natural pinkness of my nails, but honestly, that’s really a stretch–I could hardly tell if there was any color deposited after two/three coats (swatches are shown with four coats). The only way I knew I had polish on was that the ones with it were glossy! Maybe there is a slight milkiness, but this is really, really sheer. I found the formula a little thick and did not flow as easily as the other two shades from this launch as well, but since there was little color, it didn’t seem to impair the results.

Chanel Gardenia Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Gardenia Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark rose pink with subtle golden micro-shimmer and shine. The color applies semi-opaque–almost covering my lip freckle but not entirely–and deposits color evenly. Like many other Rouge Cocos, the finish is shimmery and borders on frosty.

Chanel Bronze Rose Soleil Tan de Chanel

Chanel Bronze Rose Soleil Tan de Chanel ($50.00 for 0.49 oz.) is the cool-toned companion to Bronze Corail in Chanel’s summer collection. Both variations are limited edition, and the biggest difference is in the last color: coral versus rose. After swatching and wearing the two, though, I noticed very little difference when actually worn!
