OVERVIEW: CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine

Today, I’ll be featuring my long-awaited overview on Chanel’s ROUGE COCO SHINE Hydrating Sheer Lipshines. I apologize it took so long, but I was struggling with natural lighting issues (due to cloudy days). I hope that this post will be informative and help you in your future purchases.

ROUGE COCO SHINE Hydrating Sheer Lipshine “provides 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.”

For the sake of organization and readability, I’ve split up my 8 shades in half – 4 shades that are quite sheer and 4 shades that are pigmented.

1. #68 Candeur
2. #48 Evasion
3. #54 Boy
4. #56 Chance
5. #69 Flirt
6. #46 Liberte
7. #57 Aventure
8. #62 Monte-Carlo

6. #46 Liberte (pigmented)
7. #57 Aventure (pigmented)
8. #62 Monte-Carlo (pigmented)

4. #56 Chance

Here’s a closer examination of the sheerer colors in my collection. Though the pigmentation is quite light in the photos, the final outcome is dependent upon your own natural lip shade. For those with darker, more pigmented lips naturally may be disappointed in the light color translation of the sheerer colors. I would agree these are quite “safe” colors and they won’t alter your lip color that much; they do, however, provide a soft wash of muted color and is very pretty for non-dramatic, simple makeup days.

6. #46 Liberte
7. #57 Aventure
8. #62 Monte-Carlo

The last four in my collection are my more pigmented shades. As you can see, the colors are much more apparent and come out true to what’s featured in its tube. I would say out of everything I own, #62 Monte-Carlo is the brightest shade I have. Also, it’s the only red shade I have as well. I have this as a “safe red” – one that’s not too dark, not too red, and not too overwhelming. It’s perfect for a glam night out; or, when your eye-look is simple and you want a pop of color. It’s also perfect for a red-lip-whimp like me. :)

Overall, these are my favorite lip products and are well worth the money. Keep in mind that I’ve developed this small mountain of coco rouge shines throughout time, and I certainly didn’t go and buy these all at once. They are great for any makeup scenario and are good to apply on the go since it’s so easy to apply. They’re very moisturizing and have a glossy finish. The rose scent is pleasant but you can taste it on your lips.

Wear-time for these products is quite minimal. Because the rouge coco shines have a lot of slip to them, it wears off quickly so be ready to re-apply. These are not good for any kind of long-wear and you shouldn’t expect them to stay on your lips all night long. They do, however, replace chapstick; and, you won’t need lipliner to apply to this product.

Made in France.
Retails for $32.50 each.

  1. Hey there! I love #56 and it is one of my go-to faves. However, I think it was a limited edition shade. If you can, try to hit up a Chanel boutique (that’s where I found mine). Good luck!
