A Few Chanel Things
Tuesday October 16, 2012
I got a few questions about the Chanel lipsticks from my previous post so I thought I’d do a follow up with a closer look at 3 Chanel items I received courtesy of Yesstyle.
I’m currently a Chanel Rouge Coco convert. I purged my past lipsticks after purchasing Mademoiselle last year. It was the first lipstick I really wore continuously without a second thought and it was hydrating enough to wear alone even during the coldest months.
The lipsticks are also lightly perfumed with rose and the cases are a cool, sturdy metal making them easy to find blindly within a purse. I also mentioned offhand before that the customer service I’ve personally experienced during each Chanel counter visit was impeccable. Customer service is extremely important to me.
Onto the lipstick!
While Mademoiselle is close to my natural lip color just better, I wanted to dive into a richer pink when going with Charme. Rich and rosy pink toned with a punch of frosted shimmer. The addition of the shimmer does change the texture slightly. It doesn’t apply quite as creamy as my other Rouge Coco. The color payoff is nice. It’s bright and opaque but not so overpowering that it looks garish or needs to be applied with a light hand. It’s pretty easy to wear and has a few good hours of lasting power.

The Rouge Coco Shine is even easier to wear. Evasion is one of the more nude choices being a peachy beige shade. It’s extremely sheer and goes on smoothly. It gives my lips a beautiful, slightly nude-tone, wet shine! I love it because I can apply it without a mirror, no problem. Requires more touch ups than the Rouge Coco but like I said it’s so easy to touch up on the go it’s almost like a luxurious lip balm. It’s very hydrating even if it’s been awhile between touch-ups.
Lastly a non-lip product, Chanel nail polish in Frenzy. I mentioned seeing this come out in Fall in my nail polish collection post. I got mine here on Yesstyle. More than a nude, this taupe-like shade is warm without being too bright.
I love the understated shade and have never worn anything similar. I picked it as a focus color I’m wearing for fall. Chanel polish is pretty durable. I do two coats of this color for an opaque look. With a nourishing base coat and gel-style top coat from Ettusais I can go chip-free for about 5 days.
