Chanel Rouge Coco Plumentis ($32 #79) is a soft nude with tones of pink, peach and a hint of mauve that reminds me of the U.S. version of Joues Contraste Orchid Rose blush (reviewed here).   It’s a soft, neutral color that will work with a wide variety of skin tones in a beautiful, moisturizing formula.

Don’t let its quiet neutral color fool you.  Plumentis is one of those lovely colors that you can keep in your purse and wear almost any time.  Although not dramatic, this type of color is invaluable for adding just a touch of natural polish to your look.

Here are some comparisons with some other neutrals in my collection.  First, Chanel Rouge Allure in Mythic, the timeless nude.  Next is Chanel Plumentis.  On the right are Chanel Rouge Coco in the more brown Patchouli (reviewed here) and the deeper toned Stunning (reviewed here).

One more that shows how easily this fits into almost any makeup wardrobe:

Bottom line:  Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.
