Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Romance swatches and review

I picked up my 1st Chanel lip products when I went to Hong Kong in May and how I wish I had picked up more! I got 2 of the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks and after trying them I can't stop wearing them. They are simply divine!! In my HK haul. I picked up Évasion and also Romance, which happens to be my favourite and the one I'm going to show you today.

What they say:

"ROUGE COCO SHINE makes an irresistible desire for lightness flit over your makeup. With its mischievous touch, it glides over lips with all the charm and freshness of a snapshot. As melt-away as a balm, its lip-embracing texture becomes fluid on contact with the lips and provides a stunning wet effect with natural shine. Deliciously fresh and tender, it delivers an unforgettable sensation of well-being. Lips are enveloped in the incomparable comfort of continuous 8-hour-long hydration thanks to the Hydratender complex, the secret of softness of the ROUGE COCO range."

Romance is a gorgeous bright pink colour. It shows up well on my pigmented lips and the formula is to die for!!! It feels very similar to a balm as it's very moisturising and it just feels plain fantastic on the lips. It glides onto the lips and lasts for a decent amount of time - roughly about 5 hours on me if I don't eat/drink too much before I need a touch up.

The packaging is typical Chanel - simple, black and white, elegant and luxe. LOVE ♥

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Romance

Overall: I FREAKING LOVE the Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks. They are a dream to apply and the formula is one of the best I've come across. They just feel sooooooo good on the lips! The colours are beautiful and I feel like a million bucks every time I apply the lipstick. Romance is a gorgeous shade and definitely one for every girl's collection.

Will I repurchase?: I WANT EVERY SHADE. Enough said!! Obviously I can't have every shade so I'm trying to narrow down which ones to ask my mum to bring back for me when she goes to HK in November!! xp

Details: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks can be purchased from Chanel counters in Myer and David Jones in Australia for $50.

They are available for purchase in the US from for $32US and in Hong Kong from Chanel counters and stores for $245HK.

Do you own any Rouge Coco Shines? If so what shades do you recommend?

  1. Oh gosh! It really looks nice and natural!! I love it ^^ though it is pretty expensive for me at the moment, I'll get it when i have the money ^^

  2. Wow, this looks gorgeous :) I dont own any Chanel lip products, need to try this :)

    Love Christine ♥

  3. I love this colour, but it's sooo expensive (approx. 32€ here in Italy). Anyway, it looks great on you!

  4. May give this a chance next time I get HE lippies...didn't like the last one I got and had to return it...forgot the color. But I think Romance would probably work better for me.

  5. it's enchanting and this looks great on you!

  6. Ohh this colour is amazing on you! I have a Rouge Coco Shine in Boy and thought I was content with just the one, but this needs to be mine! I shall blame you for the future purchase;)

  7. Nice! Wish Chanel was less expensive! The packaging looks extremely luxe. I have yet to try anything by Chanel but eager to do so. I'm afraid I'll get hooked though.

  8. It looks gorgeous on you Chelle <3 such a pretty face!

  9. i absolutely adore coco shines! i have four.. and i want all of them too. haha bad addiction :x

  10. romance is the prettiest colour in the whole collection. great choice!

  11. what a gorgeous colour! i'm in love!!

  12. That colour looks amazing on you! It's good to hear that it's moisturising and close to a balm. I'll definitely look into this because I'm trying to transition into lipsticks!

  13. Hi 'chelle! I have this in Liberte and I highly recommend it! Romance looks really good on you =)

  14. Lovely shade! Although it applies a little lighter than the tube colour, that colour looks super pretty!

  15. @London's Beauty: They are definitely on the more expensive side of lipssticks but I think they are worth it if you just get 1 or 2 ;) It's just such a beautiful lipstick! I hope you get one =)

    @Christine: YES try it!!! =D It's a gorgeous pink and I think it would suit everyone.

  16. @Cristina: It's very expensive here in Australia too unfortunately! I was on holiday when I purchased it and it was much cheaper than Aus so I splurged. Thank you =)

    @Tammie: I think Romance would look gorgeous on you! It's a nice bright pink just the way you like it =D Too bad you had to return the one you got doh.

  17. @Alice: Awww thank you Alice! A luxury lipstick does wonders sometimes ;)

    @Emma: Thank you hun! I wanted to get Boy too but I thought Romance was more unique. LOL don't worry I take all the blame haha! Get Romance...

  18. @Katie: Me too! It burns a hole in my wallet but oh my gosh it feels so good when you use the products. You pay for the quality I guess. And yes I totally agree with being afraid of getting hooked! I started with the polishes and now the lipsticks and I really really want more x(

    @Jade: *blush* awww shucks Jade! You are too sweet ^_^

  19. @Christine: HAHA I'm glad I'm not the only one. It's definitely the start of an addiction for me now doh!

    @Faye: Thanks lovely!! I was in the store trying to choose for like 20mins and finally narrowed it down to Romance and Évasion. So happy I started with these 2!

  20. @Lily: I'm glad you like the colour too! It's even prettier in real life =) Perfect bright pink in my opinion especially for paler girls ;)

    @Valentine: Thank you for your sweet comment hun! I think the Coco Shine's would be the perfect product to transition to lippie. It's just so much more moisturising than traditional lippies and is less pigmented so easier to apply.

  21. @Stacey: Hi Stacey!! =) Oh I don't think I tried Liberte so I'll definitely check it out next time I'm at the Chanel counter. Thanks for the recommendation! Awww thank you so much hun!

    @Joan: It's the lighting in my pics that makes it appear lighter I think oops. It's such a gorgeous pink! I definitely recommend it.

  22. Such a pretty color! Wish it wasn't that expensive haha..
