Chanel Suspense and Synopsis Rouge Coco Shines

Chanel Suspense Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is brightened, fuchsia pink with a luminous sheen and cool undertones. It had mostly opaque color with some very light translucency. Suspense lasted just under four hours on me, which is longer than the average Rough Coco Shine and just under average for lipsticks in general (on me). Revlon Sorbet is a smidgen lighter, less pigmented. Too Faced So Berry Sexy is cooler-toned, less fuchsia. MAC Lickable is less red. Guerlain Gigi is brighter. Guerlain Champs-Elysees is darker. See comparison swatches.

Chanel Ocean Shimmer Glossimer

Chanel Ocean Shimmer Glossimer ($29.50 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a clear gloss with light silver and pink shimmer. There’s not a whole lot to say about a clear gloss, and it is unquestionably dupable by a variety of brands, formulas, and price points as most brands have some type of clear gloss available. If you’re a die-hard fan of Chanel’s formula and like clear gloss, it’s certainly worth considering. If you only splash out for more unique shades, more pigmented hues, or really sparkly shades, there’s nothing here for you. The consistency is lightweight, thin but not watery or too thin, and non-sticky. It’s hard to really determine when the gloss totally wears away, but it remained noticeably shiny for two hours. I reapplied it a few times, so I wore it for a total of six hours, and it was lightly hydrating over that time period.

Chanel Dialogue and Fiction Rouge Coco Shines

Chanel Dialogue Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a subtly warm-toned, medium red. I think it’s almost neutral, so if you have a cooler complexion, it may read more neutral to neutral-cool. It had semi-opaque color payoff and yielded a good amount of color while having a slight translucency that gave it a lighter-weight look on the lips (true to the Rouge Coco Shine texture, feel, and look). It lasted four hours, which is good for a Shine in experience. Revlon Wild Watermelon is a bit lighter. Chanel Amant is slightly warmer. Guerlain Coque d’Or is more shimmery. Dior Lady is similar. See comparison swatches.
