Metro had 20% storewide last week and I took the opportunity to buy some things from Chanel.
I bought 1 blusher and 2 lip sticks from the Chanel's latest lipstick collection: Rouge Coco Shine @ $44 each. The whole collection consist 25 colours of which only 20 will be available in Singapore (read from Her World).
More details from her world:
Chanel’s Rouge Coco lipstick was launched in 2010 as part of the brand’s attempt to convince young women to wear lipstick again, rather than lipgloss, and was the brainchild of makeup guru Peter Philips, who was named creative director of Chanel Makeup in 2008
Now the brand has released a new “shimmer” version – nothing so gauche as a gloss – the Rouge Coco Shine. It’s a semi-sheer lipstick containing Hydratender complex for reportedly up to eight hours of hydration and comes in 25 shades – although only 20 of those will be available in Singapore
I bought Boy (54) and Liberte (46). I find the current Rouge Coco collection to be slightly moisturizing only; the lipsticks also have nice shimmer. It has a light vanilla-rose scent that’s rather faint but still detectable when you are applying and fade off quite fast.
I'm slightly disappointed with its moisturizing power, it will be good if its more moisturizing. The pigmentation of the lipstick is also toward the sheer side but the shimmer was really pretty. The lipstick is quite small, very portable.
The only bugging problem i have with the lipstick is the mechanism, which the lipstick was raised out of the casing. Instead of turning the base (like normal lipstick) to get the product out, for this collection, we got to turn the tube part to get the product out. Which mean our hand is placed very near to the product and we could accidentally touch the product while turning, not very hygiene lei….
According to my SA, Boy is the most popular colour, I think its true as they do not have stock for it when I was there. I have no choice but to pay first and go back again when the stock is in.
My kind Sa also give me a sample palette which include the following 4 colours from the collection:
