Chanel Suspense Rouge Coco Shine
Chanel Suspense Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is brightened, fuchsia pink with a luminous sheen and cool undertones. It had mostly opaque color with some very light translucency. Suspense lasted just under four hours on me, which is longer than the average Rough Coco Shine and just under average for lipsticks in general (on me). Revlon Sorbet is a smidgen lighter, less pigmented. Too Faced So Berry Sexy is cooler-toned, less fuchsia. MAC Lickable is less red. Guerlain Gigi is brighter. Guerlain Champs-Elysees is darker. See comparison swatches.
Synopsis Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a softly, warmed-up medium brown with faint shimmer. Once applied, it looks less brown and warmer and slightly rosy (because of the natural pink tones in my lip color). It had semi-opaque color payoff with some translucency, and it lasted for three hours on me. shu uemura Dream Orange is lighter. MAC Glamour Era is less shimmery. MAC Mellowarm is similar. Guerlain Gracieuse is lighter. Guerlain Brun Satin is less pigmented. Benefit Saucy is warmer. See comparison swatches.
These are two more 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, thin, and very emollient, as they feel like a lip balm/lipstick hybrid. Suspense was moderately hydrating on me, while Synopsis was lightly hydrating. Both shades lasted longer than the sheerer shades wear on me, but they are still a bit short compared to regular lipsticks so be prepared for more frequent reapplication.
