Chanel Paradis Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Paradis Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as “pink coral.” It’s mostly pink with a hint of coral; more pink than it is coral, but if you called it pink-coral, I wouldn’t argue. Chanel Flirt is softer, less pink. MAC Blossom Culture is more coral. Dolce & Gabbana Pink is a bit darker.

Chanel Superstition Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Superstition Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as “golden beige.” It’s a semi-sheer warm, light beige with a pale golden shimmer-sheen. It has color payoff, but it’s more of a translucent color, so it allows more of the natural lip color to peek through while giving the illusion of more coverage. On my lips, it helps to even out my natural lip color and provide a subtle shimmer, but overall, it’s more my-lips-but-better in regards to color. MAC Mellow Mood has a more golden shimmer and a pinker base color. MAC Freckletone looks similar swatched but has more color payoff, so it gives a very peachy color instead. Similarly, MAC To the Future has a similar color as the swatch but opaque color coverage and a creamy finish, rather than a shimmery one.

Giorgio Armani #500 Gloss d’Armani

Giorgio Armani #500 Gloss d’Armani ($28.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a soft, sheer pink with lots of white shimmer. It adds a hint of additional rosiness to my natural lip color, but it primarily adds lots of white shimmer and sparkle. It looks like any number of sheer lipglosses, so it’s more of a product you pick up if you don’t have too many sheer glosses already and really love the formula.

Chanel Charme Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Charme Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink.” Sometimes brands get too creative with their color descriptions, but Chanel could afford to be less glib! It’s a soft, medium pink with very subtle blue undertones and a silver micro-shimmer that gives it a lightly frosted finish. The color payoff is semi-opaque–it gives decent color but there is some translucency in the color so your natural lip color will peek through. MAC Behave Yourself is similar but applies less evenly and perhaps a touch lighter. Dolce & Gabbana Fascination is similar in hue but several shades darker. MAC Speed Dial is a bit darker and has a golden sheen.
