A week… or was it two weeks ago, I teased you with a picture of the Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in Camelia #10.
I promised you swatches and I always try to keep to my promises 🙂 Now just quickly for those who are new, the Rouge Coco lipsticks by Chanel have a nice pigment and do not go on very glossy or shiny. I always feel that they are a very adult sort of lipstick. Not something frivolous, but something when worn makes you feel almost like a lady.
The packaging is lux as befits a luxury brand and I like the weight of the lipstick. Not super heavy or bulky, yet has a nice weight so it does not feel like a plaything.
#10 Camelia is a very wearable everyday colour. I’ve got a couple of swatches below 🙂
The colour is a light rose pink which is a colour I wear well. In fact, I’d say that the Rouge Coco lipstick range is a range of very lip safe colours. Nothing super dramatic or bright but there are many good colours for women of any colour who just want a good lipstick.
The colour is a little stronger on my lips than I expected but its a good sort of colour. The texture is more satin and it lasts a long time on my lips without slipping and sliding. “A long time” means till lunch because I have my coffee and water in the mornings and by the time I have lunch, I’d wipe away my lipstick.
Some people have complained that the Rouge Coco range of lipsticks are drying. I personally do not face that problem at all 🙂 Camelia is a nice toned down lip colour I wear everyday which is great when you buy an expensive lipstick, because you want it to go as far as possible!
Pros: Lovely colour, Lasts long on my lips
I also presently have #22 Paris which is bright and not a colour I wear very often these days. Having a colour I can slick on any time every day, that matches well with the rest of my makeup makes Camelia a permanent feature in my lipstick pouch 🙂
Now, I know Chanel lipsticks are out of the price range of many, but have you indulged and if you did, which colour did you go for? 🙂
