Chanel Spring 2012: Superstition Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Superstition Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as “golden beige.” It’s a semi-sheer warm, light beige with a pale golden shimmer-sheen. It has color payoff, but it’s more of a translucent color, so it allows more of the natural lip color to peek through while giving the illusion of more coverage. On my lips, it helps to even out my natural lip color and provide a subtle shimmer, but overall, it’s more my-lips-but-better in regards to color. MAC Mellow Mood has a more golden shimmer and a pinker base color. MAC Freckletone looks similar swatched but has more color payoff, so it gives a very peachy color instead. Similarly, MAC To the Future has a similar color as the swatch but opaque color coverage and a creamy finish, rather than a shimmery one.

It’s semi-sheer to semi-opaque, but it’s translucent enough that it’s definitely not an opaque lipstick.  It seems to be one of the sheerer Rouge Cocos I’ve tried (more like a Rouge Coco Shine).  It’s just shy of being a heavier frost.  The wear time on Superstition was disappointing–only a mere hour and a half when I typically average four hours across a regular lipstick–and it wasn’t moisturizing (which is a selling feature of these lipsticks), unfortunately.  They’re non-drying, at least, so I didn’t find my lips were chapped after reapplying this two or three times (I thought perhaps the short wear was a fluke!).

These are supposed to have medium to full color coverage, so the sheerer color payoff combined with the poor wear time really brought down the overall rating for this product.

    This is beautiful!

  2. I’m so sad they keep releasing Rouge Cocos because I really think the formula is not as great as it could be. I’d love for them to release more RAs

  3. I love this colour. Instead of covering up one’s face, it brings out the beauty of it.

    Hi Christine! Just wondering what blusher you’re wearing in the photos? It looks gorgeous on you!

    I love the colors of this line by Chanel. I can’t wear any of them without either a balm underneath or a gloss on top. I find them to be too drying. But the colors are so gorgeous.

    So maybe the lipstick isn’t so great, but the rest of your makeup is! Love the natural look. What blush are you wearing?

  8. Diane

    What are you wearing on your eyes pretty lady? ;)

    Off-topic, but really love your makeup this day that you took the photo along with a few other reviews! Your skin looks matter than usual but not unnatural and that is a great blush colour on you.
