Chanel Aurora (822) is a moderately warm-toned, light-medium coral with a glossy finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $30.00 and contains 0.19 oz.
Chanel Aurora (822) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a translucent, pink-coral base with random bits of micro-sparkle. There were barely enough sparkles to warrant calling it a sparkly gloss, but for anyone who would rather go without than wear a single sparkle, you've been warned! The texture was smooth, like a creamy gel, and comfortable to wear with a non-sticky feel. It had semi-sheer coverage, which looked more like it darkened and enhanced my natural lip color (including emphasizing the natural unevenness in my lip color!) with light sparkle and high-shine.
I can't emphasize enough that this coverage level in a gloss will make it appear wildly different based on your natural lip color. It wore well for two and a half hours and was hydrating over time. Chanel's promotional swatches look quite different, both in general color (pinker and more shimmery) but also coverage (seemed more medium to semi-opaque).
P.S. My box actually lists it as 822, whereas the website lists it as 212 (with the correct name), and I purchased mine through Chanel directly.
