Chanel Rouge Coco Shine


Chanel Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine

Coco Chanel revolutionized the way women dressed by designing looks that were elegant, yet surprisingly comfortable. Her vision: simple, uncomplicated silhouettes in modern fabrics to lend a new ease and modernity to a woman’s wardrobe.

Today, CHANEL carries on that vision with new ROUGE COCO SHINE Hydrating Sheer Lipshine, the exciting next chapter in the evolution of the iconic modern crème lip colour. Lips are effortlessly dressed in the most elegant shades, with the most comfortable wear.

Fresh, sheer and luminous, ROUGE COCO SHINE provides beautiful, lasting moisturizing shine in a water-light texture. The formula glides on for easy application, and a unique HYDRATENDRE complex hydrates and softens lips, giving them a healthier and fuller appearance.

The emblematic black metal case of ROUGE COCO has been specially refined. In its new interpretation, the ROUGE COCO SHINE packaging reflects the graceful codes of the iconic brand with a slimmer case and a new interior design to protect the innovative formula.

ROUGE COCO SHINE is available in a complete range of shades, from delicate beiges to dazzling berries, with hints of shimmer to enhance a glossy finish.  Each of the 18 shades is linked to the world of Coco Chanel. . . each a source of inspiration or influence that profoundly impacted her life.

Guerlain Rouge Automatique Launches


Guerlain Rouge Automatique Launches

“The 21st-century Rouge Automatique is created for a mischievous and stylish woman. In one flick of a finger, she reveals the lipstick that will embellish her smile and make her glow with radiance.” — Olivier Échaudemaison, Guerlain Creative Director

While searching through the immense Guerlain archives, Olivier Échaudemaison found a small Art Deco wonder created in 1936 that captured his attention: the original “Rouge Automatique.” Though the legendary lipstick’s craftsmanship and hand finishes were commonplace at the time, the lipstick packaging was a revolution in itself with its single hand push to reveal luxurious color. Olivier now reinterprets Rouge Automatique for the 21st century – re-innovating the piece as the first lipstick without a cap and with an application technique requiring only a single hand.

With “Ne m’oubliez pas” (Forget me not) in 1870, Aimé Guerlain was the first to create the wax lipstick in a gold plated tube – inspired by a cylinder used to mold candles. The new Rouge Automatique builds on this heritage with a lipstick encased in a sleek, structural, gold chamber. Simple, clever and coveted. An elegant accessory steeped in history. And featuring an innovative new formula with a fine, sensual texture that glides over lips to melt on the mouth like second skin…

  • Second-Skin Texture: Sensory oils + waxes with different fusion points gradually liquefy during application, depending on temperature of the lips. The result is a soft sensory film that becomes one with skin, offering impeccable coverage that is neither too oily nor too thick. A lipstick so comfortable that you’ll forget your wearing it.
  • Boosted Colours: Cristal Pigment is a non-opaque pigment that makes it possible to obtain luminous, clear and pure colors. The result is unprecedented light and luminous beiges and pinks that feature tailor-made shine with made-to-measure sheerness.
  • Long-Lasting Hold: Offering exceptional shine, stay-put and feather-proof color, the formula utilizes a complex of oil and resin that act in harmony to accentuate shine and hold. The oil is rich, not sticky, with high refraction power.

There are 25 shades with legendary names, alluding to the Guerlain spirit and creations. Each shade retails for $35.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle with Keira Knightley

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle with Keira Knightley

Three years after the first commercial film, Knightley reprises her role as COCO MADEMOISELLE, a modern day Coco Chanel whose mystery, daring and rebelliousness are at the heart of her charm.

While the first film featured long evening gowns, the second takes on a more urban feel, with Knightley appearing on the streets of Paris in a chic, beige motorcycle jumpsuit designed for her by Karl Lagerfeld. Filmed in legendary locations across the City of Light – from Place Vendome to Place de la Concorde, the film is a collaboration between Knightley and Joe Wright, a creative relationship that began with Wright’s directorial debut, the Oscar®-nominated film Pride & Prejudice, and continued with the Oscar®-nominated Atonement.

“For me, Gabrielle Chanel is an icon and there was an incredible power emanating from all the photos of her,” states Knightley. “When I began to delve into her history more closely, I was obviously fascinated by her immense talent as a designer, but more than that, by her singular background.”

The commercial film’s soundtrack, “It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World” by James Brown is performed by the soulful voice of Grammy® award winner, Joss Stone and was published by Warner Chappell.

Coco Mademoiselle is a fresh oriental scent created by CHANEL master perfumer Jacques Polge in 2001. The fragrance represents the ever-evolving spirit of Coco Chanel in this feminine, sexy, young and exciting fragrance.
