Chanel Rouge Coco Shine - Secret, photos, swatches, review

On my recent holiday to Spain, I picked up a few nude lipsticks.  Not on purpose.  They were just the ones that spoke to me the way a nudie lipstick speaks to a nudie lip lover.  And you know what?  They were all completely justified because as the days get shorter and the nights get longer, the amount of eye makeup I wear rises exponentially.  I love smokey eyes and they need glorious nude lips to compliment them.

Enter one of Chanel's new Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks for autumn 2013, entitled Secret.  And now I'm going to tell you all about my Secret.


Secret is a shade I've been looking for for ages, but didn't know I was until I saw this in the airport coming home from Spain.  You know I love my peach lips and wore them to death over the summer, but I'm hesitant to completely retire them for the year.  Conveniently, Secret is a pinky peach shade that is perfect for my skin tone.  With shimmer dotted throughout to add shine to the lips, Secret is a slightly sheer but buildable lippie that makes me feel very grown up altogether when I wear it.  And I need all the help I can get in that department.



I only own one other Rouge Coco Shine in the shade En Vouge and I don't know why I don't have more because they're really moisturising on the lips and coming into colder weather, this is muy imporatante para mi.  Yes, I'm still in Spain in my mind.


There's another Rouge Coco Shine from the autumn collection, Rendez-vous, that I've my eye on and as it was so difficult to choose between the two, I think I'll have to pick it up next.

€30.50 is the damage but it's Chanel...  Those two C's make the perfect treat for yourself...  It's an investment... You love it.... I could be here all day with the justifications, but in all honesty, I love the formula on these and would happily shell out my cash for more of these guys.

So what Rouge Coco Shine do I need to try next?  I'm thinking something red as the festive season isn't too far away?

  2. Very nice ! What I love with you and your blog is that you can talk of either high-end brands and budget-friendly brands ;) I can't buy those high-end at this time of my life but your pics are candy for eyes and it keeps me in the loop about beauty products.

    I have a question though: it's not the first time you talked about corals and how it's appropriate for your skintone, but how one can know what is appropriate for their skintone ? I am a newbie in the lips department and I'd like to find my "ideal color" but so far I've only determined that I can wear sheer fuschia lipsticks nicely enough...

    1. I think because I've fair skin, green eyes and light brown/blonde hair, corals and peaches suit me better than pinks, which can wash me out. What colouring do you have?

  4. Ah Karen, what are you trying to do me!! It's actually the perfect all year round nude which helps justify it even more...Maybe Santy will get it if I'm good...To be honest it's a bit ridiculous that I've gotten to this point with zero Chanel lipsticks in my life. Besides, now I'm locked up in prison all day I totally deserve it! ;)

    1. Em, you totally deserve it what with your new job and all and allllllso, it's just in the autumn collection so if you don't buy it now, it could be gone and are you ready to have missed what you call "the perfect all year round nude"?? Are you Orla??? Didn't think so ;P
