Chanel’s new Rouge Coco lipstick line includes Rivoli ($30), which I ordered sight unseen from Bergdorf’s. I have a special affinity for the Rue de Rivoli in Paris, and so I knew I had to have it based on the name alone.
The color is a deep burgundy with the faintest hint of a cool blue-brown. Honestly, I could not have asked for a more suitable color for my skintone. I’m completely in love with berry tones.
This review must be short, because Rivoli arrived less than an hour ago. I did the best I could with the lighting that I have (it’s getting dark here). So far, the lipstick is very lightweight and moisturizing. It is a little more sheer than some, as easy to apply as a gloss or balm. I’m very pleased, and I cannot wait to see more colors in the Rouge Coco line.
P.S.: I had read that Chanel spent particular attention to the “click” that is made when the lipstick cap is closed. I can report that the click is, indeed, really nice. There’s a sort of slow-down as the cap gets to closure, then a medium-loud, deep toned and crisp “click” as it closes. As someone concerned about loose caps that lead to damage to expensive purses, I really appreciate this feature.
