Chanel Bel Ami Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Bel Ami

Chanel Bel Ami (66) Rouge Coco Shine ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a semi-sheer plum-berry that looks a little rosy, little brown-based when swatched, but on my lips, it appears more like a plum with a hint of red and silver shimmer. The color coverage is semi-sheer, but it applies evenly and smoothly, and it ends up looking like I’m not even wearing lipstick.  It’s a little redder compared to MAC Capricious, while it is plummier than Cle de Peau #117 (and sheerer). Rimmel Burgundy is a few shades darker.

I only get an hour and half to two hours of wear with Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shines, though, which is below average for a lipstick–and Chanel says these have “lasting moisturizing shine.” Rouge Coco shines feel more like lip balm when applied, because they have an emollient base that enables them to glide on, but I don’t find them very moisturizing. They are not drying, but they don’t impart quite as much moisture as you’d expect. I wish the product contained a bit more (like the Rouge Cocos), because the creaminess of the formula (combined with sheerer color and need for regular reapplication) makes it easy to overapply.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

You know, if these only last 1.5-2 hours on Christine, I can’t even imagine how quickly they’d wear off on me. Formulas that last 6 hours on her barely last an hour or two when I wear them. I work in customer service, so I’m talking all day long. I think I must just…talk off all my lipstick!

I think I’ll have to try on a Rouge Coco Shine the next time I’m at the counter because I’m really curious about this. Maybe I’ll get a whole 10 minutes of wear..?
