Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Liberte

Nothing really motivates me to wake up (early) on a Sunday. One of the exceptions in an India vs Pakistan match! Okay, it wasn’t quite the I’m-choking-my-pillow-to-death, down to the wire kind of match I was hoping for, but soooo happy we won! Overall, Valentine’s day and an India win made the weekend pretty great! That brings me to the downer that is Monday! Hopefully, writing about this lipstick will be enough to cheer me up to face the day!

After my success with Mademoiselle, I was more open to trying Chanel lipsticks. All it took was a few hours at Palladium Mall and I had my bag stuffed with Chanel goodies. At first glance I thought this colour might completely wash me out. But I was on a swatching rampage and when I finally tried Liberte, I thought it might just be warm enough to show up on me.

My god it is pretty! Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Liberte is a shiny, glossy sheer lipstick in a lovely peachy shade. It has a bit of shimmer throughout which translates as a slight gold sheen, although it isn’t gritty or too noticeable. Finally a peach lipstick that actually looks peach on me! Most of them turn pink on my lips. If you do love nude lipsticks but still want something different within the safe bubble, definitely try this out!

For a sheer lipstick, the formula is everything I expect. It’s buildable to medium and looks even on my lips. It doesn’t highlight any problem areas or settle into lines and in general makes the appearance much more smooth. It’s a bit balmy but not too slippery, I think it stays on better because of that. There’s also no heaviness or stickiness.

When applied to thirsty dry lips it instantly soothes and moisturises them. Don’t go replacing your favourite lip balm with this but if needed, it works just as well for a while. Overall, this stays on for around 3 hours on my lips. Of course it transfers a bit so you will have to reapply it after a meal. I’m fine with that since it isn’t a long wearing formula!

When it comes to packaging, it looks sleek and it’s smaller than your think. I wish it had the Rouge Allure packaging instead, it’s more unique and identifiable. You get 3g of product which is a bit less than usual for $34.

Overall, it’s the perfect combination of colour and formula that makes this one of my favourite lipsticks! It’s definitely one I’d repurchase if I used it up!

    This is stunning, and the formula is right up my alley. This looks like the perfect handbag product since it pair with anything, and could easily be applied without a mirror.

      Yes! I rotate my handbag lipsticks monthly and this comes in very often. :)

    I was scrolling through my Twitter Timeline the other day and wondering what you were tweeting about! Now I know…
    The lipstick looks very pretty on you.

    I really like Liberte on you! It’s great for low-key days, and everybody needs something like that :) I personally prefer the more pigmented Rouge Coco Shines and you’re right: the formula is pretty great!

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      The only other one I’ve tried is Boheme which is pretty sheer. I’ve thought about getting some of the darker magenta/plummy shades. :)

    I’ve never tried any Chanel products before but this is worth taking note of. I love the shade and the formula sounds amazing x

      If you like sheer lipsticks this is great option! x

    That would make a great lip color for office days! I’m glad the shimmer isn’t too obvious on the lips. It doesn’t wash you out, either, which I’m happy to see! :)

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      It’s perfect for office! I just love that it looks light but doesn’t wash me out. :)

  • http://www.lenallure.com/ Lena L

    I like Coco Shine range although I wish the moisturizing effect was a bit longer lasting.
    Liberte is a great nude shade and it looks amazing on you! :)

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Thanks Lena! I don’t find it in the same league as the Clarins Instant Light Perfectors when it comes to hydration but overall I find it alright. :)

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

    this is a nice shade gal
    I have three of the shades from coco rouge and I absolutely love it (antigone ,boheme and Viva )
    chanel is an addiction for no reason 😉

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      I looked up the other two shades, sooo pretty! I was thinking of getting the magenta shades when I bought Boheme but stopped myself at one. Maybe another time… 😉

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

  • http://www.clevergirlreviews.com/ Clever Girl Reviews

    That’s a color I wish I could pull off!

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Oh you totally can! It can be build up a little bit more. :)

  • http://herandmakeup.com/ Agata

    What a beautiful shade. I have never tried this formula but I’d love too. It looks very moisturizing! Did you get any other Chanel goodies while at the mall?

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Aah so I ended up getting the glosses in Mystery and Intrigue. They’re lovely neutral shades! ^_^

      • http://herandmakeup.com/ Agata

        Oh nice, I just looked them up- very pretty!

  • http://www.blushparade.com/ Carla @ Blush Parade

    I love Chanel Rouge Coco Shines! They are truly amazing lipsticks. That shade is very pretty, and it looks nice on you!

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Oh glad to hear that! Which shades do you like?

      • http://www.blushparade.com/ Carla @ Blush Parade

        I have only two (for now, haha): Pygmalion and Secret, both limited edition if I remember correctly. Planning on getting Boy at some point, though!

        • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

          I just looked up the swatches and Pygmalion is so pretty!

  • http://www.glambunctious.com/ Kristen / Glambunctious

    Ooh! Love this color! What a perfect shade for you. And I agree – the Rouge Allure packaging is just smokin’. I wish ALL lipstick came in that packaging, LOL!

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Compared to the other high end magnetic click lipsticks, this feels really clunky. They should really update them! :)

  • http://justj.ca/ MizzJ

    Oh my gosh, so pretty. It’s super subtle so probably not for everyone, but if you feel like splurging, why not haha.

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Haha completely! For me the colour is very unique because it has the right amount of pigment so it doesn’t wash me out. :)

  • http://makeuptricksandtips.blogspot.com/ fiona furtado

    GORGEOUS! Such a pretty shade and suits you so well too

    • http://www.xuvious.com/ Xuvious

      Thank you! Have you tried these?
