Chanel Fragola is a moderately cool-toned, light red with a jelly finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $30.00 and contains 0.19 oz.
Chanel Fragola Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is muted, medium coral-red with warm undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage that went on decently, but it could have been a touch more even. The gloss felt very smooth, gel-like, and plush on the lips. This shade lasted for three hours and was hydrating over time.
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.
