Chanel Spring 2012: Charme Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Charme Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink.” Sometimes brands get too creative with their color descriptions, but Chanel could afford to be less glib! It’s a soft, medium pink with very subtle blue undertones and a silver micro-shimmer that gives it a lightly frosted finish. The color payoff is semi-opaque–it gives decent color but there is some translucency in the color so your natural lip color will peek through. MAC Behave Yourself is similar but applies less evenly and perhaps a touch lighter. Dolce & Gabbana Fascination is similar in hue but several shades darker. MAC Speed Dial is a bit darker and has a golden sheen.

The Rouge Coco formula is supposed to be hydrating and have wearable shades with “full-coverage finishes.” Charme is not quite opaque, but it felt more moisturizing than many past Rouge Cocos have felt for me. When I tested this shade, it wore for around three and a half hours before it began to noticeably fade away, but my lips felt just shy of normal in terms of hydration.

A lot of brands now do the same, including cheaper ones like Kiko Makeup.
If you like this kind of small pretty details, you should check Paul & Joe’s lipsticks! Some have flowers imprinted in the lipstick πŸ™‚ Others are cat shaped πŸ˜€

I like the color on you. From experience, though, that shade of pink doesn’t mesh well with my lip pigmentation unless the lipstick’s absolutely opaque or I want to cover my lips in liner. πŸ™

I wish I had a place nearby to swatch Chanel. Of all the luxury lines, they seem to be the most consistent in what they put out.

Hi Christine! Sorry if you already answer this but what are you wearing on your eyes? It looks gorgeous! I’ve been curious since you did the last chanel rouge coco shine post, it seems to go with every lip color you’ve used.

I actually don’t find RC to be that drying and I don’t have particularly moisturized lips. I love this one, might be my first spring purchase!!Lovely on you Christine πŸ™‚
