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!
