|Just for you, on the qt and very hush hush.|
Over the weekend I got my mitts (and lips) on some of the new Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks. I think for the most part this new line lives up to the hype. This is a sheer lipstick with a bit of shine (though not super glossy or goopy) and is very moisturizing. The colors are quite nice; be aware that many look very dark or intense in the tube but are much lighter (both in shade and intensity) when applied. Being as emollient as they are, they don’t last as long as the original Rouge Coco, but do have considerably more staying power than most sheer, moisturizing lipsticks I’ve tried (still had color 3 hours later, and none of that dried out feeling).
My favorite colors so far are Deauville, a slightly brownish berry, the-color-of-my-lips-but-just-a-little-more shade, and Evasion which is a very pretty peachy pink. All of the beauty editors are swooning over Boy, but that one was just too purple for me. Tomorrow is the official launch date for this line, but it seems a few stores have testers available upon request, and (ssssh!) a couple of very nice Sales Associates let me make an advance purchase. On the qt and very hush hush.
