Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boheme

Hello there! Hope you’re doing well!

Let’s talk about something completely unrelated first! My love for laser tag has reached embarrassing Barney Stinson heights. I enjoy hiding in corners and sneaking up on people. I’m not very good at close range duels though! Do you like hitting people with harmless beams too?

I’ve spoken about my love for the Rouge Coco Shine formula when I reviewed Liberte. Here’s take two! Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Boheme is a sheer pink toned red, moisturising your lips all the way through the rather short 3 hour wear.

Beyond a certain point you can’t really build the pigment up here. It’s great as a sheer lip to just give a bit of tint to the lips or more medium to look more pink. It is a pretty colour though.

It feels very balmy and soothing, especially so when you ahve irritated dry lips.It doesn’t emphasize minor flakes and in general smooths over the texture and looks very glossy. Of course, deep cracks (if any) will be visible.

While I like the formula very much, Liberte got a lot of praise for the colour itself. Although Boheme is beautiful and I like it immensely, I wouldn’t say you need it, the colour is so dupeable. Clinique Chubby Stick in Chunky Cherry first comes to mind, a similar sheer red. Revlon Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon also features in the same colour/formulation group. Clearly, I don’t need any more of these shades. This is also well documented in my Sheer Red Lip Edit.

The packaging is sleek but I admit, compared to other high end lipsticks of the same range, it’s a misfit. Chanel Rouge Allure has a great modern and sleek look which should be emulated here. Priced at $34 this is not cheap and very much a splurge. If you like comfortable sheer lipsticks though, this is one to consider.

    Such a pretty red it is! I think Boheme is a great shade to start with if you’re just starting to wear red lipsticks and find cooler shades are more flattering.
    I’m a little torn about the lipstick formula itself, but it is always the color that pulls me when it comes to Chanel makeup!

      As much as I love the look of warmer reds, they make my teeth look yellow! I always prefer cooler reds. I agree, the formula sort of ticks all boxes but it’s not exceptional for a sheer lipstick. I still love them!

      I love how it looks, a bright red. So classic! x

    It’s beautiful on you! It’s so brightening. I bet it’s not great for covert laser tag moves, though – the beautiful color stands out too much! 😉

      Lol, blends in well with a red laser! Thanks Kristen! xx

    Very light but still flattering.

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Yep, love it for when I don’t want too much colour.

    The Rouge Coco Shines are my favourite sheer lipsticks on the market! This one looks a bit extra sheer, but a pretty shade nonetheless :)

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Yes, same for me as well! I feel like I can buy a few more shades but I’m gonna stop myself here! 😉

    This will probably blend right in with my super pigmented lips but on you, it’s very nice! Subtle but nice! Great pick!

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      I love that it looks like this amazing bright red (which I don’t wear too often) but instead it’s sheer! 😉

  • http://itskrisworld.blogspot.in/ Krithi Marla

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

    OOOO this shade is preeeetty! I love Rouge Coco Shines as well, but I tend to like the more saturated ones. I wonder how well this particular shade will show up on me!

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      I have Scenario which is a lot more pigmented but sometimes I just like a sheer lip colour, this is great for that. :)
