The CHANEL Superstition Collection for Fall 2013 was inspired by Gabrielle Chanel’s belief in ‘good fortune‘ and the charms and talismans in which she surrounded herself. The collection includes the every exciting new release of their Le Blush Crème de Chanel and a selection of six new lip shades to create shade-matched pairs. The new lip shades for Fall include two Rouge Coco Hydrating Lip Colour’s in Icone and Mystique. Two Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Lipshine’s in Secret and Instinct, one of which I have here today. Finally, two Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Colour’s in Rendez-vous and Esprit. I might say that the entire selection of six new lipsticks and Creme blushes are all very tempting.
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Lip Sheers are a “moisturizing, water-light formula with a shimmery high-shine finish.” The two LE shades are Instinct, a soft blue pink and Secret, a shimmering pink. Secret is my first Rouge Coco Shine purchase which was immediate on my part for its shade and glossy finish, however the formula I discovered, is not a favorite for me.
Secret is a pale peachy-pink with shimmer. The shade is a fun and flirty hue that is a perfect pairing to many looks. The Rouge Coco Shine formula is a balm-like lipstick that applies sheer and layers well for more intense shine. The result is quite beautiful and the shade is a stunner, however the wear is not so good. I had to reapply about every 40 minutes to keep the color looking fresh. The positive part is that you wont need a mirror for touch-ups.
The Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Lip Sheer is said to provide extra hydration to the lips. When I first applied the Lip Shine it certainly felt like I was benefiting my lips by doing so. Though, once the lipstick wore away my lips felt a bit more dry than they had initially. So, the formula is not a love but the immediate application is gorgeous and I continue to wear it often. I do think this is my first and last experience with the Rouge Coco Shine formula. If anyone knows a dupe for this shade I would love your suggestions!
