Romance (784)

Chanel Romance (784) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips fairly evenly, though it seemed like some color gathered in my lip lines but the mirror-like shine made that fade into the background to my eye. The gloss was smooth, non-tacky, and almost gel-like as it felt plusher and very comfortable on the lips. The color stayed on well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.

Chanel’s holiday collection will be available October 16th online and November 2017 at counters.

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.

Hi Christine,
Can you tell if this gloss is “evading” over the lip edges? (many gloss tend to bleed into the small wrinkles over my lips, despite lip liner)

I’m assuming you mean feathering? I have not heard the term evading before so I apologize if you meant something else – could you describe it if you meant something else? I did not experience feathering – if I had, I would have noted it in the review as that would have been a con! 🙂

I don’t normally care for or use a lip gloss but I have to say, the color and shine of this one really tempts me and it doesn’t have glitter in it which is a real plus for me. This one I am kind of into and since I haven’t really tried many glosses the gel texture sounds interesting to me, also. I am going to give this one a try. I like to try and support Chanel when I can. It was my go-to HE brand for many years.
