Chanel Spring 2012: Destinee Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Destinee Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as “plum.” It’s an ever-so-slightly muted raspberry plum with a healthy shine and semi-opaque color coverage. MAC Craving is a bit darker. Maybelline Bit of Berry is slightly brighter. MAC Positively Dashing is similar in color but has a frostier finish. MAC Red Dwarf is more opaque and darker. Dior Ruby is redder.

The Rouge Coco formula is good but falls short of some of the brand’s claims, primarily hydration, which it doesn’t provide–it’s neither drying nor moisturizing. The color range is typically semi-opaque to opaque with a lightweight feel. Destinee wore for around four hours and was comfortable to wear.  I think this kind of color is supremely flattering across skin tones, both in terms of undertones and color.  It’s not too dark or vampy, so it won’t feel too bold against even the palest of skin, but it has enough color and oomph to complement darker skin tones, too.

    That’s a really lovely plum colour..really good for everyday wear.
    As usual you look pretty wearing it :)

  4. It’s pretty, but it just doesn’t scream “plum” to me. Perhaps it’s just me….

  5. This looks just beautiful on you! Are you wearing the Chanel Spring collection liner on your waterline?

    Beautiful color! Your skin looks fantastic as well.

    I don’t particularly like my lipsticks too mushy and that often comes with moisturizing lipsticks. I then find adding a gloss makes a bigger mess. So I might check this one out. Gorgeous shade, especially on you, Christine!

    Beautiful! Definitely looks more raspberry than plum. What a pricetag!

    Christine, what are you wearing on your waterline? It looks lovely

  14. I really like this shade with the rest of your look! Weird how this shade seems to be opaque and sheer at the same time!
