Chanel Magnolia Rouge Coco Lipstick
Chanel Holiday 2010: Magnolia
Chanel Magnolia Rouge Coco Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a slightly milky medium pink with subtle blue undertones and a glossy finish. It seemed glossier and smoother than other Rouge Cocos I’ve tried–very creamy. It also had less of a shimmer/frost finish. Rouge Coco is a little drier and less opaque, tending to have more shimmer/frost finishes in its line-up than the Rouge Allure family. It’s a lightweight lipstick, and the line has a lot of universally appealing shades. It has a slight vanilla-ish rose scent, but it’s quite subtle, and I never notice it when I use my Rouge Cocos. This shade of pink is nice for both cooler and warmer skin tones, as it’s not too strong of a blue base.
Cle de Peau #106 Extra Silky Lipstick is a smidgen lighter but otherwise similar, including that slightly glossy finish; Maybelline Warm Me Up is warmer but close; Urban Decay Naked seems the closest in color but has less of a naturally glossy finish.

RECOMMENDATION: It’s a beautiful shade of pink that’s very wearable and perfect for everyday; which simultaneously makes it not necessarily the most original shade either.
