Chanel Plumetis Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Fall 2011: Plumetis Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Plumetis Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft pinked apricot that applies semi-sheer. It ends up looking rather peach on my lips, and it tends to mute my natural lip color and add warmth. It’s a softer version of Chanel Liberte. Rouge Cocos are described as hydrating, though I find them only somewhat moisturizing overall.

Plumetis only lasted two and half hours on me before fading, and it is a little drying, as compared to the creamier Rouge Cocos (like Etole).  I felt like the texture of this wasn’t as smooth as it should be–there was this unevenness that ended up translating onto my lips.  When applied, it seemed to accentuate every imperfection and gather in places.  For me, this was a real miss.

The Glossover



The uneven application alone makes this a less-than-impressive offering from Chanel. It wears far below average (2.5 hours vs. 4 hours), and it's not moisturizing (when it should be).

    My debit card is sending you a virtual high-five, Christine. He has been feeling pretty depressed after all these good reviews you’ve been posting…

    I’ve been wearing this lipstick for about a week now and like it; no dryness and on my pigmented lips, it’s a perfect nude. Different body chemistry, I guess.

    I absolutely loved Plumetis! pity it didn’t work out for you :(

    I don’t ever understand why someone would purchase a crazy expensive lipstick that is sheer. Sure it may be a “higher quality product” but usually they are dupable! Like with this I could just dab some lipgloss and sheer it down with vaseline!

    • Liz

      I gladly spend that kind of money on sheer products. During the day I prefer sheer textures (that or light creamy ones) and I have enough to worry about at work ect to not want to deal with a sticky lip-gloss or vaseline. I don’t buy a lot of make up – I only buy what I know I’ll use a lot, what is convenient to me and my life-style and in general just products I LOVE, rather then “like” or “are pretty” or “are okay” – I hate cluttering up my life with things I don’t really use. Because of that I will spend as much on an item as it is worth to me, and that can be a lot!

        Undrstandable. Ive just found less expensive options, even at a MAC pricepoint to be more suitable for really any product. I wake up at 6:30 in the morning and put on bright pink lipstick (candy yum yum for example), so obviously sheer isn’t my thing anyways haha.

  5. Chrissy

    That’s too bad. The color looks really nice, though.

  6. Gina

    this worked great for me! Plus Rouge Coco’s are NOT supposed to be a moisturizing lipstick. But this was not drying on my lips, none of the RCs are for me. I give this an A+! :)

    • Hi Gina,

      You might want to take a look at Chanel’s description of Rouge Cocos — on, the English text is “Hydrating Creme Lip Colour” and here is the description text:

      CHANEL introduces a modern interpretation of classic creme lip colour as an homage to the rich life and legacy of ‘Coco’ Chanel. New lightweight lip colour glides on for easy application, and features a Hydratendre complex to help soften, soothe and condition lips – even boosting their ability to hold in moisture – for a plumper, smoother and healthier-looking appearance. A range of wearable shades with full-coverage finishes, from matte to pearl to soft shimmer.

      I remember when I originally received the press materials for Rouge Coco, which I don’t have any more, but they were definitely marketing these as a hydrating formula. I agree that many of the Rouge Cocos are not drying, but I personally have found that some are.

      • Debra

        Rouge Coco’s are not hydrating, as promoted, but I don’t find them drying either. I find that each shade, whether in the Coco or Allure formula, can vary in its “moisture” or “dryness.” RA Comedia is moisturizing on my lips but RA Darling is dry as dust. So I’ve concluded that it’s a matter of the pigment and your lips. With Chanel, there as many exceptions as rules, except for the one standard: it’s gonna cost you a lot!

  7. The shade is so pretty…too bad it doesn’t stay for long and isn’t moisturizing enough!

  8. Amy

    Huh. I thought the color would be darker.
