Chanel Dialogue Rouge Coco Shine
Chanel Dialogue Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Dialogue Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a subtly warm-toned, medium red. I think it’s almost neutral, so if you have a cooler complexion, it may read more neutral to neutral-cool. It had semi-opaque color payoff and yielded a good amount of color while having a slight translucency that gave it a lighter-weight look on the lips (true to the Rouge Coco Shine texture, feel, and look). It lasted four hours, which is good for a Shine in experience. Revlon Wild Watermelon is a bit lighter. Chanel Amant is slightly warmer. Guerlain Coque d’Or is more shimmery. Dior Lady is similar. See comparison swatches.

Fiction Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a pinky-berry with cool undertones. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a light translucency, so the natural lip color will still influence the overall color that you see. It lasted around four hours on me. MAC Lush Life is darker. MAC Scan-delicious is pinker. Guerlain Lou-Ling is similar. Guerlain Pour Troubler is also similar. Guerlain Guet-Apens is darker. See comparison swatches.

These are two of eight new shades being added to the Rouge Coco Shine formula range, and the new shades are specifically designed to be more pigmented (“colour-rich”), as the Rouge Coco Shine formula normally has sheer color (by choice). The consistency is lightweight, creamy, and slick–it feels like a lip balm and lipstick hybrid, so it’s emollient and can slide around a bit. I didn’t have any issues with either of these deeper shades feathering or bleeding, though. They were lightly moisturizing, but Rouge Coco Shines are never quite as hydrating as touted for me.

Dialogue

If you've been wanting a more pigmented Rouge Coco Shine, Dialogue is one to consider. It also wore a bit longer than other Rouge Coco Shines have for me in the past.

Fiction

Fiction is a cooler-toned shade, compared to Dialogue, so if you prefer cooler, more opaque shades but still want the balm-like consistency that Rouge Coco Shines offer, you may like this.
