Chanel Rouge Coco: Teheran

Chanel Teheran (56) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a frosted pinked coral with soft iridescent pink-fuchsia shimmer. It’s a warmer shade, which means it will suit warmer complexions with ease. I think the way the pink sheen catches the light may make it wearable for cooler skin tones, though. For a Rouge Coco, it has a surprising amount of color coverage–virtually opaque–and didn’t seem as dry as other shades I’ve tried with similar frost finishes.

my thoughts on the formula: Rouge Coco is a slightly drier formula, because most of the shades are frost finishes, but I don’t find it drying–it’s just not moisturizing. It has a light vanilla-rose scent that’s rather faint but still detectable. It doesn’t seem to linger, though. On average, Rouge Cocos last four hours on me. I like the formula overall, and the shade range tends to be very wearable with a wide variety of colors from pinks to browns to reds.

The Glossover



The Rouge Coco formula is most suitable for those with relatively healthy lips; if your lips are dry and cracking, I would recommend opting for a more moisturizing formula (perhaps Rouge Allure, if you want to stay within Chanel).

Product & Review FAQ

Where can I purchase Teheran? How much is it?

Chanel, $32.

Is it limited edition?

As far as I know, it's permanent but an online exclusive.

Any dupes?

It reminded me of a lighter, pinker La Prairie Corail. Milani Coral Bora Bora is lighter and less bright, but it is in the same sphere.

    It’s at Chanel Studio’s as well (Nordstrom Seattle, Bloomingdales in South Coast Plaza, etc).

  2. to glittery for me :-/

  3. Marieke

    I love the color! And I really like that little brown spot on your lower lip. It’s easy to see if the lipstick is opaque or not 😉

  4. This looks gorgeous on you Christine! Such a beautiful color :)

  5. Rosamaria

    Hey Christine, I know you’ve been wanting this one. So glad you finally got it!

  6. I am so loving this that i’m gonna get this weekend!!

  7. sue

    It’s beautiful ! How close is this to Mac Crazee ?

  8. This is soooo ZOMFG pretty!

  9. kfm

    I’ve been looking at this one for a while, but I’m always worried it’ll be too close to Mac’s Costa Chic, which is sort of a frosty mess I have to work on to make it look good… It looks a lot prettier in the photos, though. I can really see the sheen you mention!

  10. Marian

    That’s a pretty color but the Rouge Cocos are too drying for me.

  11. Pamela

    One of the best lipstick colors I’ve seen on you–EVER! What are you wearing on your cheeks? Highlighter, blush or both?

  12. Sarah

    it reminds me of vitamin by nyx, pretty much the same color

  13. alex

    Hey Christine,

    A little off topic but…

    I don’t know if you see the same banner ads that I do on your site, but I’m becoming obsessed the lipstick color the girl in the Net-A-Porter/Front Row is wearing. It’s such a beautiful, warm (and non-frosty!) fuchsia. Any idea what it might be? Possible dupes?

    Hi Christine
    It is my first time to leave a comment 😀
    Your cheeks in the picture are very beautiful!!!
    What product did you use for your cheeks? I really want to know ;D

  15. Molls

    Looks nice on you, but on me it’s an unwearable neon orange.

  16. Lulee

    i want this for the name only. i’m glad they brought it back because the last i checked it was sold out.

    • Lulee

      wait… “Please note that back-orders placed for this product will not be fulfilled until mid-May.” im not waiting 3 months for a lipstick, sorry chanel

  17. Suzanne

    Frosty orange? What was Chanel thinking?

  18. helen

    Lovely shade on you but i was wondering if you found that it changed colour after wearing it a while. I’m finding that peach/corals seem to turn into pink/red on my lips (and i don’t have very pigmented lips).

  19. Eileen

    This was one of my favorite colors last summer. It’s quite versatile because of the combination of orange and pink tones. It’s a bright and cheerful color, but there is a softness about it that prevents it from being vulgar or garish. It looks beautiful on you, Christine. You positively glow!

  20. Xandra

    I love the Rouge Coco range. How does this compare to Sari Dore though? It looks almost the same.

  21. I could win the lottery and still not be able to bring myself to pay $32 for a lipstick (even though that shade is gorrrrgeous!!)

  22. Mariella

    Looks lovely on you, Christine, but oranges are just not a good colour for me. I’m not usually a fan of frosted lipstick, but this one looks really nice, both on you and in the swatch!

  23. really pretty! Perfect for summer!

  24. Jae

    oooh, loving the color!! i definitely see myself rockin’ this for spring!

  25. Minty

    Hi Christine, what are you using as blush/highlighter here?

  26. Annie

    This is my HG lipstick. It brightens up my face in an instant. I absolutely love it, and had several of my friends purchase it!

  27. I was born in Teheran, so just because of the name I would buy this lipstick lol

  28. Aracely

    Is Teheran similar to Chanel’s Sari Dore?
