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.
