Chanel Spring 2012: Paradis Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Paradis Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as “pink coral.” It’s mostly pink with a hint of coral; more pink than it is coral, but if you called it pink-coral, I wouldn’t argue. Chanel Flirt is softer, less pink. MAC Blossom Culture is more coral. Dolce & Gabbana Pink is a bit darker.

The color coverage is semi-opaque–it yields a healthy amount of color, but it doesn’t completely cover my lip freckle. The finish is a soft frost; there is noticeable shimmer and sheen, but it’s not metallic or heavy. Paradis applied well enough, but it could have been a little creamier. Rouge Cocos are supposed to be moisturizing, and while I did find Charme to be more hydrating, this one was consistent with the past ones I’ve tried, which is not really moisturizing but not drying. It wore for three and a half hours.

Free for Haul Friday, Volume #114

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul:  Guerlain Rouge Gs from Spring 2012
  • Weekend plans:  Trying to get through my backlog of photos a bit more before everything becomes useless!
  • Have you made any new year’s resolutions (not beauty-related)?:   I didn’t!  I always have goals and milestones I want to achieve, but they don’t start/stop at the new year, so they’re more like year-round goals, I suppose.
