I’m slowly trying to go through my tiny Chanel Rouge Coco Shine collection, this used to be my absolute favourite line of lipsticks up until I discovered Lunasol and SUQQU, which have now won me over as my favourite brands for lipsticks!
Don’t get me wrong Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine are still amazing lipsticks. They are quite moist, they aren’t terribly pigmented but that’s what I like about them (perhaps for the more conservative person) and they are very easily to apply. Unfortunately don’t expect any moist lipstick with slip to last as long as say a matte lipstick, that’s just how science works.
As a stand alone lipstick these are great, but when you explore other brands you begin to see the differences. For example I find that lipsticks from SUQQU and Lunasol provide a lot more moisture. And I love that they have absolutely no scent, where as Chanel lipsticks all come with a subtle rose scent, their signature scent.
Rebelle is almost a bit of an exception when I talk about pigmentation because it is one of the redder shades from the Rouge Coco Shine collection, a light application gives your lips a “bitten” appearance, and a few more coats give them a nice red hue.
One thing to keep in mind when using lipsticks designed to contain more moisture, never roll out the entire tube to apply. The heat of your lips will melt it down faster, just roll up a tiny bit at a time.
Old photo is old, I’ll try and take a better photo next time of my actual lips instead of eyes X_x;
All in all, I still love Rouge Coco Shines, but I can definitely see myself “investing” more of my money into SUQQU and Lunasol for the foreseeable future! I just wish they were more ready available in Australia Shopping online without testers can be a little like shooting in the dark!
