Chanel Saga Rouge Coco Shine
Chanel Saga Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a warm, medium pink with a soft shine. It had mostly opaque color payoff, but there was a slight translucency to the color and finish that enabled the natural lip color peek through just a smidgen. This shade lasted four hours on me, which is longer than most Rouge Coco Shines do, but average for lipstick in general. Chanel Liaison is very similar. NYX Stella is lighter. MAC Elegant Accent is darker. MAC Flamingo is slightly lighter. MAC Betty Bright is brighter, a smidgen lighter.

Scenario Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a warm, reddish plum with a glossy shine. It had semi-opaque color payoff with some translucency, so you could see some of my natural look come through along with a shadow of my lip freckle. It lasted for three and a half hours when I tested it. Chanel Grace is more shimmery. MAC So Very Good is darker, less red. MAC Sheer Plum is browner. Chanel Bel Ami is cooler-toned. Chanel Imperial is slightly darker, more pigmented. Buxom Runaway is brighter, more opaque. See comparison swatches.
The formula on both shades was creamy, slick (almost wet), and lightweight. Saga was a bit creamier and thicker compared to Scenario, which looked a bit like a lip stain applied. I experienced light to moderate hydration when I wore both of these back-to-back.
