Chanel Melba (75) Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light peach with warm undertones and a glossy shine. It is somewhat like Chanel Gourmandise, which came out alongside this shade, so I don’t think you need both. MAC Luxe Natural is more beige. MAC Woo Me is more opaque. Bobbi Brown Uber Beige is more opaque. See comparison swatches.

As one might expect, given the sheer, shiny color of the Rouge Coco Shine range, Melba had semi-sheer color payoff. On my lips, it lightened and brightened my natural lip color and evened out the color as well as concealed my lip freckle slightly. It has a lightweight, balm-like consistency that’s creamy, slick, and easy to apply. The lipstick glides on without tugging or pulling at the lip, and it is lightly hydrating while worn. The high shine finish lasts about an hour and a half, then it starts to dull, and all of it seems imperceptible after two hours of wear. It has a light floral fragrance.

It is for all of us who don’t want to look like we’ve smeared bright red (or whatever color you fancy) gunk all around our mouths 🙂

I personally love this color. It’s great for whenever you wear smokey or bright eyes or brighter blush. I like this way better than Gourmandise, it seems a bit warmer and lacks the shimmer!

You are missing her point! Many like me don’t put “gunk all around our mouths” (like you stated), but I definetely like the OP said, would never spend $34 just on something like is more of a lip balm!! I think for the same effect, vaseline would look almost the same!

I don’t know what kind of lips you have, but these colors actually show up on me! They are nothing like balm at all. But it seems like a lot of people think the more opaque the better, which imo is complete bull****. I wouldn’t pay $34 for something very opaque because it looks awful on my lips. But I guess if lipsticks looked the same way on me as they do on Christine (they are not even close, everything shows up very well on me), I wouldn’t bother with this shade.

BTW, vaseline wouldn’t alter the lipcolor in any way at all, like this shade clearly does (even though it’s subtle).

It is a ringer for Gourmandise.. and I like both. But I also think my Korres Jasmine lip butter looks very very similar and it is cheaper and it is a real lip balm. Tempted, but passing.
