Chanel Bel Ami Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Bel Ami

Chanel Bel Ami (66) Rouge Coco Shine ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a semi-sheer plum-berry that looks a little rosy, little brown-based when swatched, but on my lips, it appears more like a plum with a hint of red and silver shimmer. The color coverage is semi-sheer, but it applies evenly and smoothly, and it ends up looking like I’m not even wearing lipstick.  It’s a little redder compared to MAC Capricious, while it is plummier than Cle de Peau #117 (and sheerer). Rimmel Burgundy is a few shades darker.

I only get an hour and half to two hours of wear with Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shines, though, which is below average for a lipstick–and Chanel says these have “lasting moisturizing shine.” Rouge Coco shines feel more like lip balm when applied, because they have an emollient base that enables them to glide on, but I don’t find them very moisturizing. They are not drying, but they don’t impart quite as much moisture as you’d expect. I wish the product contained a bit more (like the Rouge Cocos), because the creaminess of the formula (combined with sheerer color and need for regular reapplication) makes it easy to overapply.

The Glossover


Bel Ami

Bel Ami is a good shade for autumn/fall, and the translucency in color gives it a really natural appearance when worn. It's comfortable to wear, though not as moisturizing as touted, but it will require frequent reapplication.

  1. The color looks pretty.. I like it.

  2. Annette

    wow !! i love this color

  3. I prefer something a bit more opaque.

  4. Charlotte

    This is just making me want Capricious even more!

  5. Chantal

    You know, if these only last 1.5-2 hours on Christine, I can’t even imagine how quickly they’d wear off on me. Formulas that last 6 hours on her barely last an hour or two when I wear them. I work in customer service, so I’m talking all day long. I think I must just…talk off all my lipstick!

    I think I’ll have to try on a Rouge Coco Shine the next time I’m at the counter because I’m really curious about this. Maybe I’ll get a whole 10 minutes of wear..?

  6. Violet

    So pretty in the tube, but on the lips.. I am disappoint.

  7. Jessica

    that’s very pretty in a finished, but not to done-up way.

  8. Carie

    That’s pretty much just a bit lighter than my natural lip color :/

  9. Julie

    I have it, it’s not so pink though. the smell is amazing. the lasting is a little disappointing, but I’m gonna buy more 😉

  10. It looks so gorgeously natural on you! It looks lovely with your skin tone.

    I don’t suppose you remember what eyeshadows and blush you were wearing….? :(
