Chanel Rouge Coco Shine #48 Evasion – Review, Images & Swatches
Let me preface this with I have not broken my Project 10 Pan! I purchased this lipstick quite a few weeks back (not long after they were released) I just have a backlog of reviews to write.
The Chanel Rouge Coco lipsticks were a massive hit when they were released back in early 2010, this latest incarnation, the Rouge Coco Shine, blends lipstick and gloss to create a wonderful hybrid formulation. Chanel says “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.”
This 18 shade range includeds a great selection of colours from nudes through to deep berries and plums, however the formulation is quite sheer so even the deeper shades are wearable. The texture of the Rouge Coco Shine’s is lovely – very creamy and balm-like and much better than the Rouge Coco Lipsticks, in my opinion.
I actually bought mine whilst helping a friend pick her wedding day lipstick, she chose the very pretty nude-mauve shade called Boy and I chose shade #48 Evasion. Evasion is a creamy, light peach shade with a healthy dose of pink. There is no shimmer of glitter to the shade, just pure creamy shine. The colour is ultra-flattering and extremely wearable, it would look fantastic paired with a deep, smokey eye but it also works with just a slick of liquid liner.
Shadewise it reminds me of Mac’s Way To Love, a limited edition shade that was gorgeous but it now hard to come by and Evasion is definitely a winner in my book!
I really cannot say enough good things about the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks, I love Evasion so much I have gone back for a second shade (#61 Bonheur, a deep plum-berry) which I will share with you in the near future.
