Chanel Satisfaction (89) Rouge Coco Shine
Chanel Satisfaction (89) Rouge Coco Shine

For spring, Chanel’s released four new shades of the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lip Colors ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) formula. The Rouge Coco Shine formula is supposed to have sheer color payoff paired with “lasting, moisturizing shine in a water-light texture.” Satisfaction and Boheme are permanent, while Mutine and Emotion are limited edition.

Chanel Satisfaction (89) Rouge Coco Shine ($35.00 for 0.10. oz.) is a light-medium, muted peach with hiunts of beige and warm undertones. It had semi-opaque color coverage, actually, which was surprising, as this formula is typically more barely-there. It has a soft shine and lasted three hours on me. It was slightly hydrating. Guerlain Galiane (15) (P, $51.00) is more opaque, slightly warmer. MAC Naked Bud (LE, $16.00) is warmer, sheerer. MAC Fleur d’Coral (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Pout (142) (LE, $30.00) is lighter, more matte. Maybelline Nude Lust (920) (P, $7.49) is lighter. Maybelline Blushing Beige (915) (P, $7.49) is lighter. MAC Luxe Natural (P, $22.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Mutine (90) Rouge Coco Shine ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) is soft, muted rose with a golden shimmer-sheen. It’s sheer, as described, and just seems to lighten the natural lip color and make it slightly pinker. The sheen and slight shimmer seemed to last for an hour and a half on me, so I wore it twice, and felt like it was lightly moisturizing over time. Revlon Pink Lemonade (P, $7.49) is lighter. Guerlain Beatrix (LE, $48.00) is darker. Dior Candide (P, $31.00) is slightly pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Boheme (91) Rouge Coco Shine ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium orange-coral with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had sheer color coverage that gave lips a stained-like appearance with a glossy shine. It wore three hours on me and was moderately hydrating. Too Faced Bon Bon (P, $21.00) is more opaque. Revlon Lover’s Coral (P, $7.99) is less glossy. Burberry Primrose Hill Pink (P, $30.00) is more opaque. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Emotion (92) Rouge Coco Shine ($35.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, pinky-berry with cool undertones and a soft shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a translucent finish so the natural lip color would still come through. It wore well for almost four hours, and it was moderately hydrating while worn. MAC Commotion (LE, $20.00) is brighter, darker. Revlon Plum Velour (P, $7.99) is darker. Too Faced So Berry Sexy (P, $21.00) is more opaque. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Tarte Fearless Amazonian Clay Blush
Tarte Fearless Amazonian Clay Blush

Tarte Fearless Amazonian Clay Blush ($26.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “coral pink.” It’s a medium, subtly warm-toned pink with a satin-matte finish. On my warmer skin tone, it almost looks cool-toned, but in the pan, it’s definitely warmer in tone. Milani Bella Rosa (11) (P, $7.99) is much darker but when worn lightly, it is similar. MAC Formal (LE) is lighter. Guerlain Madame Rougit (LE, $67.00) is similar. Edward Bess Bed of Roses (P, $43.00) is cooler-toned. NYX Peach (P, $5.00) is warmer-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It had fairly good color payoff, but it wasn’t as intense as it appeared in the pan, and it was buildable to full coverage. The texture was a little drier and stiffer than other Tarte blushes that I’ve tried; it seemed like the top layer needed to be removed first, and then the texture was somewhat improved. It was fairly blendable, and it lasted for almost ten hours once applied (short of the twelve hours claimed, though).

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Bright Lipstick!

my answer: I love how it can be the focal point of a look, because it can take a couple of minutes to apply and then you’re done with your look! It’s a nice way to look “put together” with less effort. They can sometimes be high maintenance, though.
