Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine

Chanel finally released their much anticipated new lip color, Rouge Coco Shine ($32), on April 6th  in the US.  All of the Chanel counters in my town (and I am sure everywhere else) were doing pre-sale for this launch. Of course, I wasn’t going to chance them selling out so pre-ordered a few shades that I had to have.  I have already done a review on the shade Boy that was limited release in February; you can check that out here.

If you don’t know anything about the Rouge Coco Shine product it is a hydrating sheer lipshine that provides lightweight coverage and texture while moisturizing your lips.  They are available in a full range of shades from light beige to deep berry.  I picked up two of the lighter shades: Evasion and Aventure.  Both shades have fairly good pigmentation and a touch of shimmer and a whole lot of shine.  They also have a slight rose scent to them and a balm-like consistency.
Evasion is a fresh, delicate peachy pink that really brightens up my natural lip color.  Definitely a perfect color for Spring/Summer and would suit all skin colors.
Aventure is a medium bright pink with soft gold shimmer.  In the tube it doesn’t look super bright but when applied you get a real pop of bright pink on your lips, which I wasn’t expecting but really liked.  This will be an awesome color paired with bronze and gold shadows in the summer.

Overall, love this product, love the formula, love the colors and will probably pick up more in the coming weeks.  I will definitely share my thoughts on other shades when I purchase them.

P.S - Compared to Boy, Aventure is a much brighter pink.  I just compared the two and was amazing how much brighter Aventure is, especially on the lips.
