Flaming Lips (812)

Chanel Flaming Lips (812) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a rich, ruby red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a metallic pearl paired with a shiny, glossy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly across my lips without emphasizing my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, light-medium in thickness but still lightweight, and mostly non-sticky. The gloss did feel a bit thicker compared to other Rouge Coco Glosses, but it was also much more pigmented than the typical shade, though officially the formula runs “sheer to opaque” (and rarely gives insight in what’s what!). This shade stayed on well for five hours and was hydrating over time. I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding, but keep in mind that those are not things I normally experience.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.19 oz. - $157.89 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “intense shine, hydration” with a “gel-like texture” with shades that vary from “sheer to opaque” in coverage. The consistency has a smooth, lightweight texture that can feel more like a gel-like texture with some of the sheerer shades and more like a cream and gel hybrid with more opaque shades. It’s a formula that’s comfortable to wear with light tackiness that lasts anywhere from two to four hours and is hydrating over time.

There was a strong, mirror-like shine across the shades that was very reminiscent of the prior Glossimer formula. There was a faint floral scent, and with some shades, I got a subtle taste of perfume. The doe foot applicator was more unique (at least, to me) with a very curved edge that was great for my bottom lip while flipping it gave me a more paddle-shaped edge that worked better for my top lip.

I would love to see Chanel introduce color descriptions on their retail website, especially for a formula like this where there can be such a huge difference in pigmentation (and finish) from one shade to the next that isn’t obvious from a product photo.

Liquid Bronze (808)

Chanel Liquid Bronze (808) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a soft, medium brown with fine, gold and bronze pearl. It had sheer color coverage with even dispersion of shimmer/pearl that spread well across my lips and didn’t sink into my lip lines. The gloss had a lightweight, plush, more gel-like consistency that was comfortable to wear and mostly non-sticky. It wore well for four hours and was moisturizing while worn.

Both quite nice, but who would think they were the same formula? Quote… unquote…. Clearly it isn’t, so why not separate them into the sheer ones and highly opaque ones? It does make for mega confusion. I guess, if you give a continuum, you aren’t really ever wrong, no matter how it comes out. Weird.

It makes my life harder for sure… because obviously I want to hold each respective shade up to whatever, and sometimes I’ll get the press release from the brand and it might say, but other times I don’t (and the consumer website doesn’t give shade descriptions usually!). I think if they are going to offer a range that has varying coverage, which is a good thing, shade descriptions or insight (S for sheer, O for opaque) would be useful. Just like Urban Decay’s Vice range has sheer to opaque, they provide finish info for each shade.

The only thing that makes me feel better is that, by and large, I doubt most readers will find the outcome on pigmentation to be a problem – they will see it as sheer and opaque and make a decision from there, regardless of the rating on pigmentation officially.

Flaming Lips (812) looks amazing! I find it’s the perfect shade between Opulence (754) and Épique (772). I have Opulence – a coppery red- and it’s my go-to gloss when the autumn comes. It is a thicker formula but it settles so well on lips and it’s so pigmented.

Flaming Lips. For the name. For the grade. And absolutely, for the rich ruby slipper color! For the WIN! 💋

(See that TF? You can still be edgy, yet classy!)

My thoughts exactly Nancy. I was going to say in my comments that you don’t need to resort to crudity if you have a fabulous product and give it a classier name.

I don’t notice the scent on, personally, but my sense of smell is mediocre at best – I can detect to a degree but by no means am I a great nose.

Flaming Lips (I love the name!) is stunning! It looks great with your eye look too. Perfect for a special occasion. I have ColourPop Coquette which is cooler, and I can’t stop staring at my lips when I wear it. 😉

I love Flaming Lips! It screams Christmas/Holidays and looks gorgeous on you.😍 Liquid Bronze is pretty too but in a more subtle way, obviously, lol. Captain Obvious here😉

Flaming Lips is such a sensational shade – so vibrant. Liquid Bronze is a real disappointment as hardly any pigment shows up and it could have been a really vivad bronzey shade.

Holy smokes as a huge fan of the band Flaming Lips (which has nothing to do with this shade), I think I have to pick up the lip gloss Flaming Lips. It’s fate.

Chanel has more depth, a bit darker, and bluer overall! Because it’s not as glossy and deeper, I don’t think it appears as shimmery!

You can compare any two swatches I’ve done right on this page – it’s under “Compare Any Two” or go to Swatch Gallery > compare any two!

Chene Rouge is significantly lighter, very warm-toned, sheerer, and has only slight gold pearl… so basically nothing alike!

I adore Chanel Flaming Lips and Bronze Gloss My granddaughter remarked on Flaming Lips and luckily I was able to find in time for her stocking. I love your reviews. I seldom if ever buy a product that you have reviewed and find my experience is different.

Just bought Flaming Lips based on this review. Christine, have you ever come across a lipstick shade from Chanel called Ruby Slipper? It’s my all-time favorite lipstick. In mind’s eye I cried when they told me it was discontinued, at the Bloomies counter. I have been on a quest for dupes for over a decade. It’s a tiny bit more wine-toned that this shade, which appears more bright red.
