Chanel Bourgeoisie is a slightly warm-toned, medium plum with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $30.00 and contains 0.19 oz.
Chanel Bourgeoisie Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a moderate amount of light pink sparkle. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that went on somewhat unevenly. I felt like it was easy to get "lines" any time I pressed my lips together as the gloss had a creamier, more slippery feel on the lips compared to some shades. I could feel some of the shimmer/sparkle on the lips but only occasionally. The color lasted for three and a half hours and was hydrating on me.
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 five 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.
