Chanel Rendez-vous (87) & Secret (85) Rouge Coco Shines

Chanel Rendez-vous (87) Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “intense blue-pink.” It’s a medium, subtle blue-based pink with a luminous sheen. This shade is part of the Colour range, so it is designed to be more pigmented–and it is at nearly opaque coverage–than the original range of Rouge Coco Shines. It wears for four hours, which average, and is lightly hydrating. Urban Decay Fiend is warmer. MAC Please Me is lighter. Chanel Belgravia is darker, cooler-toned. Le Metier de Beaute Fuji is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

NARS 413 BLKR Lipstick

NARS 413 BLKR Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “warm rose brown.” It’s deepened, warm red with subtle brown undertones and a matte finish. It immediately reminded me of NARS Amsterdam, which is slightly warmer, but I think the two are quite similar (to the point where you wouldn’t need both unless you wear it all the time already). MAC Legendary is browner, warmer. MAC Pre-Raphaelite is more metallic. See comparison swatches.

Giorgio Armani #300 Rouge d’Armani Lipstick

Giorgio Armani #300 Rouge d’Armani Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a warm-toned, orange-red with a luminous sheen. It’s a lovely shade, but there are so many similar shades to this from all brands and price points, so whether this one captures your heart is really a matter of how many others have already done so. MAC Tomango is matte. Urban Decay Bang is similar. Maybelline Orange Edge is slightly redder. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is also slightly redder. Maybelline Electric Orange is less red. MAC Sail La Vie is similar. MAC Morange is less red, more orange. Buxom Rogue is very similar. See comparison swatches.
