Chanel first launched their Rouge Coco range of lipsticks some time back in 2010. I was quick to jump on the wagon and picked up Paris and Camelia. I wore them often and I enjoyed using them, maybe because they were Chanel and the only Chanel I could afford LOL! Don’t we all feel that way eh?
While there were some reports that the Rouge Coco lipsticks were a little drying, I did not personally feel it to be so. They weren’t hydrating though (Chanel released Rouge Coco Shine to deal with that and I prefer Dior Addict in a straight fight comparison), and Paris did leave my lips feeling a little dry sometimes, but nothing I would really complain about. I’ve used worse. But, over time, I felt that they weren’t as comfortable on my lips as I’d like them to be. It just struck me that my Paris and Camelia lipsticks are now over 5 years old and I still haven’t used them up! Oh boy!
Fast forward to 2015, and Chanel has addressed this problem by overhauling the whole Rouge Coco line and introducing the newly reformulated Rouge Coco lipstick range, which promises better hydration. I can get on that!
In revamping the Rouge Coco range, Chanel has also revamped the names so the new Rouge Coco lipsticks are now named after friends, relations and lovers of Mademoiselle Coco Chanel. What this means for you and I is that, you might just be able to pick up a lipstick with your name on it! 😀
I was generously gifted with 16 shades with a selection from each of the 5 colour groups available, from the very nude to the very flamboyant, so here’s what I think of the new formula and here’s how some of the more interesting shades look when I wear them – 16 FOTDs. You don’t get this every day! 😛
