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.
