Chanel Suspense Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is brightened, fuchsia pink with a luminous sheen and cool undertones. It had mostly opaque color with some very light translucency. Suspense lasted just under four hours on me, which is longer than the average Rough Coco Shine and just under average for lipsticks in general (on me). Revlon Sorbet is a smidgen lighter, less pigmented. Too Faced So Berry Sexy is cooler-toned, less fuchsia. MAC Lickable is less red. Guerlain Gigi is brighter. Guerlain Champs-Elysees is darker. See comparison swatches.

Synopsis Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a softly, warmed-up medium brown with faint shimmer. Once applied, it looks less brown and warmer and slightly rosy (because of the natural pink tones in my lip color). It had semi-opaque color payoff with some translucency, and it lasted for three hours on me. shu uemura Dream Orange is lighter. MAC Glamour Era is less shimmery. MAC Mellowarm is similar. Guerlain Gracieuse is lighter. Guerlain Brun Satin is less pigmented. Benefit Saucy is warmer. See comparison swatches.

These are two more of eight new shades being added to the Rouge Coco Shine formula range, and the new shades are specifically designed to be more pigmented (“colour-rich”), as the Rouge Coco Shine formula normally has sheer color (by choice).  The consistency is lightweight, thin, and very emollient, as they feel like a lip balm/lipstick hybrid.  Suspense was moderately hydrating on me, while Synopsis was lightly hydrating.   Both shades lasted longer than the sheerer shades wear on me, but they are still a bit short compared to regular lipsticks so be prepared for more frequent reapplication.

Suspense is gorgeous, I fell in love with it first from the advertisement and then on store after I swatched it I had to bring it home with me. I use it very often particularly because itΒ΄s such a pretty and flattering color. I donΒ΄t remember swatching synopsis but for a brown lipstick I think it looks nice πŸ˜€ .

I’m really liking Synopsis, it’ll be great for everyday wear. I have to see if these are already available at my local Chanel counter. πŸ™‚

I had not noticed Synopsis before! It seems like such a great shade. I’ll make sure to swatch it next time I’m at the counter.

I just bought this lipstick and wow what a pigmentation I own alot of rouge coco shine and always whised they were more pigmentated and my wish came through with this one. Love pairing it with a neutral daytime look to leave the focus on the lips.

Synopsis is way too brown for somebody as fair as me, but it’ll make a gorgeous nude for women with darker skin. πŸ™‚ I do love a pretty fuschia like Suspense, though, so I might have to keep that in mind.

I got Suspense the other day. It’s my second rouge coco (the first one went back to store) and this one is a keeper!! I know the other ones were not supposed to be heavily pigmented but the one I got was like wearing $34 tinted lip balm.

This one is great though. It’s moisturizing and has plenty of pigment. For me this is a perfect lipstick as I tend to like Guerlain’s shine automatiques as my HG lipsticks. I plan on checking out more of the new colors soon.
