My First Chanel Lipstick: Rouge Coco Shine #85 Secret



Yesterday my boyfriend and I went to Plymouth and being the lovely boy that he is, he treated me to a few things, one of them being my first ever Chanel lipstick! I was convinced that I wanted to get a YSL Rouge Volupté lipstick, but I wasn't particularly impressed with the colour range they had available and those that I did like the look of were sold out anyway. So, I went over to the Chanel counter, a place i've never ventured to before and had a browse. This lipstick really caught my eye and after trying it on in House of Fraser I knew it was the one I wanted. But, just my luck, it was sold out too! However, I ran to the Debenhams up the road and luckily they had one in stock! 


This lipstick is a Rouge Coco Shine from the limited edition Fall 2013 Superstition collection, inspired by "the symbols of good fortune that Gabrielle Chanel loved most" and is in the colour 85 Secret. It is a nude, slightly peach shade with a hint of shimmer. Due to the nature of the Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks it is very creamy and hydrating which is perfect for me because my lips tend to chap quite easily, particularly in the colder months (AKA every month in England)! However, I have been extremely impressed with the opacity of this lipstick. Despite being quite sheer, it is very buildable and creates a semi-opaque finish resulting in a natural "your lips but better" effect. 


This lipstick retails for £24, so obviously it isn't cheap, but I really think it is worth it. There are a lot of fantastic drugstore lipsticks on the market, but in regards to the packaging they really can't compete as this is absolutely beautiful. It makes me feel special every time I use it and it has immediately become one of my favourite products in my make-up collection. The formula itself isn't amazingly long-lasting due to the light creamy nature of it, however that just gives me more of an excuse to keep getting it out! ;) The lovely lady at the Chanel counter also gave me some free samples of the Coco Mademoiselle perfume and the new CC (Correction Complete) cream, so i'm excited to try those out too.

At the time of writing this post this lipstick is available from the Debenhams or Selfridges websites, however it is limited edition so if you want it you'd better hurry!

Have you ever tried a Chanel lipstick? Do you have any recommendations?

  4. you have the sweetest blog! I love your layout! I dont own any channel lipstick but I have recently been won over by quality rather than price, and I am swaying more towards high end brands now. That is a great colour for your complexion x
