You know what? I’m starting to have this philosophy of saving up to buy more expensive (and higher quality) cosmetics rather than plenty of cheap ones.
However, thanks to my purchases since the end of my Semester One exams, I am quite broke. Thanks to my aunt, I received this as a gift because she didn’t like the color. My first and only Rouge Coco!
I was literally jumping for joy when I received this, heh heh heh. I’ve always wanted a Chanel lipstick, more for the interlocking Cs than a lipstick. (Pssst. Rouge Allure Lacque in Dragon and Ming, just you wait!)
Ooops, I accidentally smooshed the top. >.<
Is it not such a lovely color? It’s, pink and metallic. An instant fave. This is now part of my collection of lipsticks in heavy rotation along with my Dior Addict in Diorkiss.
On my lips, it is an instant My Lips but Better color. Definitely Mama Kee friendly.
As you can see in the above picture, taken with flash, it brings a sheen to my lips, making it look alive.
I love it because it is comfortable to wear, and you don’t really feel it when you have it on. It lasted about 5 hours on me, which is great for me. However, I do not mind about wear time much. ^.^
Of course, there is a but.
The right swatch is Revlon Colorburst in Mauve, and you can instantly see that it is very similar to Organdi Rose save for the slight golden tone and shimmer. Come on, it’s a Rouge Coco, it should be unique!
I am lucky that I didn’t get this, or I would’ve paid more for a color I already own. However, if you are a brand snob or a Chanel fan, such trifles should not bother you. ^.^
All in all, it is a beautiful lipstick. I might save up for more, but I’ll get them after Ming and Dragon. heh heh heh.
Chanel Rouge Coco lipsticks retail at RM 95 in Chanel counters Malaysia-wide.
Pros: Lovely color, excellent wear-time, no allergies, comfortable wear.
Cons: Instantly duped, has a taste I can’t describe but dissipates quickly.
