Feb 262010

On February 25, 2010, Chanel released 30 new lipstick shades in the Rouge Coco line.  According to the reports that I’ve seen from Chanel, this line is intended to be an easy-to-wear lipstick that feels light and moisturizing.  The Rouge Hyrdabase and Aqualumiere plastic cases have been re-worked for the Rouge Coco line.  The new lipsticks use a cool metal, which does feel cool to the touch in a purse.  I can certainly tell the difference between a Hydrabase lipstick case and a Rouge Coco lipstick case by the cooler feel of the latter in my bag without looking.

The posts that follow are a review of six colors that I purchased on the release date.  I’ve previously reviewed and swatched Rouge Coco Rivoli here.  When I was shopping, I swatched and examined all thirty of them at least twice, and found that these worked best for me.  Hopefully, these will give you a preview of some of the ones that I found were standouts for me.

The names are wonderful, each one reflecting another aspect to Coco Chanel’s life.  It is a wonderful tribute to her legacy, in a more modern formula made for quick, easy and beautiful application.

Are you ready?  Here we go!

  1. Yes, I am giddy with anticipation. I’m heading to Nordstrom right after work, well right after I pick my daughter up from the babysitter. I have to be really super critical since my time will be limited – my daughter doesn’t have that much patience being 19months old and all so I already know the line up of colors I want to check out! Thanks and I’ll let you know what I end up picking up!

  2. I picked up four of the Rouge Coco on Feb. 25: Mademoiselle, Perle, Organdi Rose, and Ruban Rose. I’ve had two days to wear them and have been very pleased with the moisturizing effect and the long wear. The colors might be “dupable” but the formula sure isn’t. It’s very smooth and comfortable and gives added dimension to the lips. My lips actually look smoother and fuller when wearing them–not an easy feat as I am an older women! When you consider that you’re getting a beautiful lip treatment that doesn’t require constant reapplication, the $30 price tag’s not bad at all.

    • Those sound lovely!! I agree, I don’t honestly believe that these can be duplicated right now. They’re so easy to wear–I really like them!
