Chanel Spring 2012: 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.

The Rouge Coco formula is supposed to be hydrating and have wearable shades with “full-coverage finishes.” Charme is not quite opaque, but it felt more moisturizing than many past Rouge Cocos have felt for me. When I tested this shade, it wore for around three and a half hours before it began to noticeably fade away, but my lips felt just shy of normal in terms of hydration.

The color is extremely wearable while still having some brightness. It should work well for not only spring but for summer--you could even layer a subtle coral gloss on top to make a really summery lip.

  1. I love how Chanel imprints their name on the actual lipstick. It is the subtle things like that, that make their name synonymous with class.

    • A lot of brands now do the same, including cheaper ones like Kiko Makeup.
      If you like this kind of small pretty details, you should check Paul & Joe’s lipsticks! Some have flowers imprinted in the lipstick :) Others are cat shaped :D

    • Hannah

      Revlon does the same exact thing with its Color Burst line… available at your local drug store and supermarket.

  2. It’s a bit boring… In my opinion.

  3. For a second there I thought it was going to look like Jersey Rose, but it’s so not! Quite a pretty light pink and i agree-wearable! Looks lovely on you!

  4. Raquel

    I have this and love it! It is a pretty and wearable shade. It shows up darker on my lips than in your pics. Very pretty!

  5. Lauren

    Looks like a beautiful color, I may have to pick it up. Thanks for the post Christine!

  6. Annie

    What’s on your cheeks here? It looks really good!

  7. This would be amazing for the spring season!

  8. This color seriously looks amazing on you!!
    Wish I had 32 bucks to fork over for a lipstick haha :( Looks worth it, though!

  9. Rosemary

    It looks like a really beautiful spring/summer look.

    WOW this looks really pretty on you! It reminds me of the old MAC Barbie lipstick.

  12. Charme looks beautiful on you! What are you wearing on your eyes?

  13. Mina

    This is so pretty! Christine, what blush are you wearing in the photo? It’s beautiful with that lip color!

  14. I don’t care if it only scored a b+ – it’s the prettiest colour!!!!!!!! I need it.

    I like the color on you. From experience, though, that shade of pink doesn’t mesh well with my lip pigmentation unless the lipstick’s absolutely opaque or I want to cover my lips in liner. :(

    I wish I had a place nearby to swatch Chanel. Of all the luxury lines, they seem to be the most consistent in what they put out.

  16. This is such a great pink! I love how girly it looks without getting over the top.

  17. I love my RC Mademoiselle but I wish the formula was less drying and there were less frosty shades :( I really want to try the Rouge Allure formula though!

  18. Jenny

    Looks great on you.
    What eyeshadows did you use on your eyes?

  19. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Krystal Krystal

  21. Josiane

  23. Courtney

    I quite like this.

  24. Kelly

    I have this one! I wanted Enivree but they were out :(

  25. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Karina Karina

    This color is just beautiful! It’s a little pricey, though.

  26. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Hayley Hayley

    Could you tell us what blush you are wearing in this photo? You look beautiful!

  27. Idarling

    It’s lovely and looks great on you as well! But what I want to know is what you’re wearing on your cheeks! So pretty and fresh!

  28. That looks lovely!

    Hi Christine! Sorry if you already answer this but what are you wearing on your eyes? It looks gorgeous! I’ve been curious since you did the last chanel rouge coco shine post, it seems to go with every lip color you’ve used.

  30. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Ana Ana G.

    I actually don’t find RC to be that drying and I don’t have particularly moisturized lips. I love this one, might be my first spring purchase!!Lovely on you Christine :-)

  31. Ooh I love your earrings! Where’d you get them?

  32. Eris

    Just beautiful.

  33. Kathrina

    It looks very pretty! Could it be compared to Guerlain’s Gemma lipstick?
