Chanel Sourire Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick ($35) which means "Smile" in French, is a soft pink with fine golden shimmer. It looks like a bright watermelon light pink in the tube, but once the color is applied, it's a sheer warm soft pink. It's a great universal shade especially on warm skin tones, as the golden bits gives the pink some added brightness, so it's not a pink that will wash you out. In fact, it's one of those perfect lipsticks that you can mindlessly toss in your bag for every day and it's so subtle that you can wear it on your no-makeup days or with any makeup look.

If you're looking for loads of pigment, you will want to look elsewhere because the color is very sheer - and although you can build the color with multiple passes, you won't reach opaque coverage. The texture is slippery like a balm and will leave your lips tinted, moisturized and slightly glossy. It's basically like a luxury tinted lip balm.

Unfortunately as with sheer lipstick formulas, the lasting power won't be super long, so you might need to reapply a few times throughout the day between meals - not that I mind. Since the color is sheer, you can just pop some on - no mirror needed.

Is it a necessity? Of course not - in my makeup bag Chanel is always a luxury. There are of course so many other options out there for tinted lip balms that are far less expensive. But, I absolutely love Chanel and their makeup line and to purchase a lipstick here and there is a fun treat. 

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks can be purchased online or at your local Chanel counter.

The Round-Up

Pros:
  • Sheer, buildable color - great for every day
  • Applies smoothly
  • Makes the lips look plump and hydrated 
  • Moisturizing
  • Shiny finish
Cons:
  • The product isn't long lasting, so you'll have to reapply throughout the day.
Price: $35

  1. I love that it seems to transform depending on the pigmentation of your lips, I don't like lip products that are "sheer" but apply streaky and patchy. This looks like a great option, even at the price. Chanel is a luxury but we all need a little of that now and then!

  2. Absolutely stunning and it has all the types of qualities I'm looking for! I need moisture all the time with my always slightly dry lips and that shine and I love the simple classic looking black packaging. Sooo regretting not looking at these at duty free!
