Chanel Liberte Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Liberte (44) Rouge Coco Shine ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) looks like it’ll be a brighter coral-red from the tube, but when swatched and applied, it’s a much softer color with only a hint of coral.  It’s a very played down mix of peach and pink.  It gives semi-opaque color coverage, but it seemed a little patchy compared to some of the other Rouge Coco Shines I’ve tried.    Rouge Coco Shines are supposed to deliver softer, sheerer color, so I would not expect full color coverage with this formula (consider Rouge Cocos or Rouge Allures for more color payoff).

It’s a sheerer version of MAC Temper Tantra (a touch pinker, too), which means it’s also similar to Korres #25 Liquid Lipstick. It’s slightly less pink compared to Chanel Libertine. MAC See Sheer is a little darker.  You can compare them all side-by-side in our Swatch Gallery.

This shade also wore off in about an hour and a half; I just can’t get it to stay on for long (most lipsticks last an average of four hours on me).  Rouge Coco Shines have many balm-like qualities; they’re glide on easily and feel very emollient, but they’re not as moisturizing as a balm.  These are slightly smaller than Chanel’s other lipsticks (0.10 oz. versions 0.12 oz.), but soft formula of the Rouge Coco Shines makes these easy to over-apply.

Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in Inglot #434, 444, 454, 451, 448, 447, 453 (Grays & Whites)

To wrap up our look at Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.), we have several grays and whites.  I’m not sure if there is a black eyeshadow with a pearl finish, but it could be in pot-form only or else not available online–seems hard to believe there isn’t any, though!   These were all easy to work; soft, smooth and application was seamless.  The color payoff is excellent without being excessive.  Lighter shades like #448 and 447 go on a lot lighter than they look in the pan, though.

Inglot Pearl Eyeshadows in Inglot #405, 404, 419, 433 (Earth Tones)

Inglot’s Pearl Eyeshadow ($4.50 to $7.00 each for 0.09 oz.) were seemingly easy to organize by color, but after swatching, there were a few odd ones out that didn’t quite seem to go with traditional browns or greens.  Consequently, I give you earth tones.  I will finish up this palette with grays and whites in the next Inglot post! 🙂

I’ve come to really appreciate consistency over the years, both in a brand’s overall quality as well as what to expect from a particular product/formula.  I’m nearly finished swatching over forty shades of Inglot’s pearl eyeshadows, and there aren’t any true duds.  There are a couple that aren’t true-to-pan in color, but the quality is quite consistent within the range.  It just means that no matter what color you might buy, you can expect really soft, smooth textures with excellent color payoff–and these four shades are no exception.
