Chanel Etole Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Fall 2011: Etole Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Etole Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark berry red with a hint of plum. When worn, it is dark without being overwhelmingly so; it’s a softened dark, if that makes any sense! There is a hint of shine, and the lip color really seems to melt into the natural lip and ends up looking rather natural. It’s a very fitting shade for fall, and I think it is incredibly easy to wear, particularly for thsoe who tend to stay away from darker lip colors. This is dark without being dominating.

Rouge Cocos are described as hydrating, though I find them only somewhat moisturizing overall. Etole has less frost and shimmer, and it wears better for it–it’s more moisturizing and applies evenly to lips without catching on any imperfections as a drier frost might. I was able to get about four hours of good wear with this particular shade. The color of this shade is nearly opaque (just a hint of my lip freckle peeks through). I do see it pulling red on those with more naturally red lips.

I thought it was most similar to Cle de Peau #117 Extra Silky Lipstick, which is perhaps a touch pinker, less berry. Dior Raspberry Serum is a bit redder and darker. MAC Capricious is similar but less opaque and on the pinker side.

As one of the first products I tested from Chanel's fall collection, it raised the bar! The color is perfect for fall, with its soft vampy feel, but still very wearable.

    Ooh it’s like a more opaque, less pink Capricious? SOLD!

    The proximity to Capricious piqued my interest and I’ve been thinking for a while now that it’s time I treated myself to a Chanel lipstick. Looks like it was meant to be this one! I’ve even got a gift certificate from Mothers’ Day burning a hole in my purse….

  3. hmm I am almost out of MAC capricious :P

  4. the swatch looks much darker than the actual color on your lips! :P

  5. Dana

    great all color for all skin tones

    Argh. Chanel is going to kill me with their lipsticks. I have eight and it looks like it is about to be nine…..I *love* this colour!

  7. Musebeliever

    I don’t see it as vampy at all !
    I like the colour ! ^^

  8. Charlotte

    I love it on you but know that on my already pigmented lips this would be way too vampy.

  9. Nadia

    This looks like another of those lipsticks that will look totally different on me than it does on you. It’s going to be super dark/red-toned on my lips which I won’t like.

  10. This would be good on it’s own, with little eye makeup, for a nice summer look.

  11. Regina

    I’m a little confused about the limited edition status of this lipstick…you say it’s not LE but it’s from the fall collection, and on the Chanel website says it’s LE. Any other info?

  12. Natasha

    You are evil! I must have this.

  13. very pretty color….and it goes with that nice green eyeshadow (by itself). happen to be JW? you probably never finish using all these lipsticks so you can keep the color to swatch against newer colors together?

  14. lala

    do you perhaps know how this color compared to rouge coco rivoli?
    tia!

  15. I trust your lipswatch more than my own testing at the counter! It didn’t look as pink as it does on you. But I still got it. yeppee.

  16. Why the name Etole ? Is it because it’s like a “big red scarf” that you put on your face ? ;-)
