Chanel had released a limited-time preview of their much anticipated, new lipstick collection Rouge Coco Shine, in the form of “ Boy ”. This delicate rosewood shade, named after Coco Chanel’s love Arthur Capel is available in certain departmental store prior to Valentine’s Day. ( I got mine in Malaysia, during Chinese New Year holiday )
Arthur “Boy” Capel was the love of Coco Chanel. It was his influence that encouraged her first venture into hat-making and it was her romance with Boy Capel that inspired her to draw a masculine energy into her constantly evolving wardrobe. She borrowed his pajamas, jackets and straw boaters, and made them her own.
A hydrating, sheer rose lipstick with a glossy pearl finish & extremely slight shimmer. It’s extremely moisturising & feels comfortably balmy upon application, with a faint rose fragrance.
Rouge Coco Shine gives my lips a tint of pinkish rosewood, with enough glossiness to plump up those fine dry lines. It’s like a glossy lipstick without the tackiness of a gloss & the opacity of a traditional lipstick. I regard this as a pigmented lip balm that gives just enough tint to make lips looks polished.
Rouge Coco Shine wears for about an hour or two on my lips.
Suitable for everyday wear, universally flattering; There’re lots of MLBB lippies around, but only Chanel Coco Shine Boy delivers an augmentation to your lips, to the next level of perfection!
I can foresee myself loading up on other shades when the range is launched, meanwhile, some lipsticks porn……
