Chanel Holiday 2010 includes Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in Magnolia ($30 / #117) a limited edition, beautiful light-to-medium classic pink. This is one of my favorite items from the collection, and apparently I am not alone. It is already sold out on Chanel.com. Hopefully other large department stores will maintain it in stock for another few weeks.
This color is one of those perfect pinks, a classic color that is wearable across a wide variety of skin tones. Here it is, swatched next to Charming Glossimer–the two would make a nice pairing although I’m happy to wear Magnolia by itself.
Magnolia gives a pretty glowy finish, and is relatively opaque in one swipe. It is a lovely color that brightens without being bright:
Here is Liz, wearing Magnolia with Chanel Tweed Fuchsia blush from this same collection:
This is an absolutely perfect lipstick–I highly recommend it. One more:
