Chanel Article (204) Rouge Coco Stylo

Chanel Article (204) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and fine gold and fuchsia shimmer. It has a more multi-dimensional sheen to it in person, as the cooler flash of fuchsia shimmer is more striking against the warmer base color. This shade had opaque color payoff with a lightly glossy sheen that went on evenly and smoothly. It’s hydrating, wears for four and a half hours, and was comfortable to wear. MAC Coral Optix (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Ready to Swoon (P, $0.99) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Maybelline Rose Rush (735) (P, $7.49) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC CB96 (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Guerlain #43 (P, $33.00) is cooler (85% similar). Dior Sunset (660) (LE, $34.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Guerlain Geneva (48) (DC, $58.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Estee Lauder Heavenly (P, $30.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Givenchy Mandarine Bolero (304) (P, $36.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Histoire (206) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, coral-red with subtle pink tones and a glossy sheen. It’s red, but it’s pink, but it’s coral, but it’s so red! It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft, smooth, creamy consistency that melted against the lips but didn’t over-apply too easily (but I still caution you about that!). On me, the color wore well for four hours and was hydrating while worn. Guerlain Rouge Kiss (325) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). ColourPop Frenemie (LE, $7.00) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Popsicle Lips (28) (P, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). Revlon Provocateur (135) (DC, $8.99) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS Flamenco (DC, $28.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Bite Beauty #003 (LE, $36.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Something Wild (46) (P, $57.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Urban Decay Wonderland (LE, $18.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Hibiscus (LE, $19.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Givenchy Rouge Atelier (302) (P, $36.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (85% similar).

Estee Lauder Envious (P, $32.00) is brighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Adriano (LE, $36.00) is brighter, warmer (80% similar). Estee Lauder Blossom Bright (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (80% similar). Urban Decay Sheer Slowburn (DC, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Maybelline Rose Rush (735) (P, $7.49) is warmer (80% similar). Chanel Arthur (440) (P, $37.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Overview

Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to offer the “intensity of a lipstick” with the “shine of a lipgloss” and “comfort of a lip balm.” The consistency of this formula is incredibly soft and melts against the lips, so it is easy to over-apply (and subsequently, easy to run through the product!) with a butteriness that you typically find in more emollient lip balms. In general, color coverage is semi-opaque to opaque, with wear coming in at three to five hours, depending on the shade. The formula is comfortable to wear and very hydrating both during and after wear. The downside is that these types of twist-up lipsticks (in the slim casing) tend to contain noticeably less than a standard bullet lipstick (0.10 to 0.12 oz. usually!) and the more pliant formula makes it easy to reapply and run it back and forth more than necessary (for the coverage). There’s a light rose scent to the formula, subtler than the Rouge Allure lipsticks, though.

You look great in Kae Pop. Sometimes people comment on the naming of shades. Personally, these appeal to me. Literary/writing terms. Finally something adult. Not text/pop culture/etc. some days I feel really sheltered, and kind of glad of it. Born again Luddite with no cell, no desire. Read a Reddit by a Japanese exchange student about a stalker/anime/manga freak who showed the young gent Yaoi.. Now I did not know that the OCC shade referred to anime gay porn! Hah hah lol and ATS. I’ve been acronyming for decades before cells. I nearly flooded my drawers laughing at the poor student beset by a wannabe, who referred to herself in the third person, wore cat ears, and spoke 1/2 bad Japanese and half bad English. Too funny. I would rather have obscure names I have to figure out …like yaoi! OMG too funny. These look lovely, but little is appealing to me these days, thank G.

I just received Message today. My first impressions are: creamy , great color, but——-oh —- they are very soft, and that makes it easy to over apply . The product will be used up quickly!!!!
