I got caught up in the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine hype when I was looking around for a new lipstick. I finally broke down and bought it in 57 Aventure.
It is a lush pink color with a hint of gold. According to the Chanel website, Rouge Coco Shines are LE hydrating sheer lipshines. It is supposed to "provide a lasting moisturizing shine in a water-light texture. The formula glides on for easy application, and a unique HYDRATENDRE complex hydrates and softens lips, giving them a healthier and fuller appearance. Available in a complete range of shades, from delicate beiges to dazzling berries, with a hint of shimmer to enhance a glossy finish."
Aventure applied to half of my lips
Aventure fully appliedI love how it does apply sheerly with a wash of color. As Chanel said, it does glide on really nicely and has a watery finish to it, which I love. It does feel nice and hydrating. I love the color Aventure. The downside to it is that the hydrating, watery feel doesn't last. After wearing it for about an hour or so, my lips do not feel like it's being hydrated. The color doesn't fade but the hydration does so I feel like I have to reapply it. I'm sure that if I used a lip balm before applying Aventure, it would help but I wanted to test it without using a lip balm. Using a lip balm kind of defeats the purpose of purchasing a hydrating lipstick. Considering the price, I would be a bit hesitant to purchase this again, although I do love the color.
