Chanel Fraicheur (818) is a slightly cool-toned, very light sheer with a sheer finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $30.00 and contains 0.19 oz.
Chanel Fraicheur (818) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a translucent aqua base (really, mostly clear) with flecks of gold micro-sparkle. It had sheer coverage with a dusting of sparkle, so it had more of a glossy, high-shine effect and made my lips appear plumper (with less visible lines) and feel comfortable. The texture had the non-sticky, smooth, and gel-cream feel of the formula, and it was nicely hydrating over the two hours it lasted for.
The translucent nature of the gloss seems obviously intended (and the Rouge Coco Gloss formula varies), but I implore brands to take 30 seconds and write out descriptions or organize their ranges by opacity. It would be fantastic to see Rouge Coco Glosses organized by finish, perhaps sheer, sheer shimmer, cream, and opaque shimmer. They do have some promotional swatches, which definitely showed this particular shade to be on the sheerer side but seemed to be more shimmery.
