Chanel Esprit (88) Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “burgundy.” It’s a medium-dark, raspberry pink with cool undertones and a soft sheen. This shade is supposed to be one of the more pigmented/opaque shades of the Rouge Coco Shine formula, which is reflected in its coverage, as it is nearly opaque applied.  Esprit lasted four and a half hours well, and it was lightly hydrating while worn.  The consistency was creamy with a fair amount of slip and applied evenly.  Chanel Fiction is warmer. Revlon Raspberry Pie is cooler-toned, more raspberry. Guerlain Lou-Ling is darker. Guerlain Guet-Apens is slightly darker. Chanel Taffeta Rose is somewhat brighter. See comparison swatches.

Instinct (86) Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “soft blue pink.” It’s a soft, light-medium beige-pink with neutral-cool undertones. As part of the normal range of Rouge Coco Shines, it is supposed to be sheer, which it is. It really doesn’t look like it alters my natural lip color much, other than giving it a natural sheen and darkening it slightly.  It seems to disappear in an hour and a half (judging primarily by shine, since color is a difficult indicator!), and after wearing it a few times in a row, I found it just slightly moisturizing.  Revlon Pink Lemonade is more opaque. NARS Mitzi is more shimmery. MAC Peach Blossom is similar. Guerlain Rose Desir is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Esprit is so lovely! I have similar colours (like Lou-Ling and Fiction), but they’re also shades that I wear all the time, so I think I can justify adding another to the collection.

Is it just me or are these new Rouge Coco Shines all interchangeable? They are pretty but they (especially the nude ones) all seem too similar – Instinct in particular. I can think of at least 5 RCSs that appear just like it.

That’s a bummer about the quality of Instinct. It’s exactly the kind of color I’ve been looking for as an MLBB shade for awhile. 🙁 Mitzi looks promising, though. I’ll have to give it a look.

Esprit is a beautiful colour I’m in love with it ,but instinct is awful it’s almost no colour I think it will be look good only on the light skin undertone with a perfect lip that doesn’t have any pigmentation
