Why Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss is a winner

Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss

What’s your can’t-live-without make-up product? After foundation and concealer (boring!), mine’s lip gloss. It may fade in and out of fashion but it’s never far from my face, especially now when everyone’s banging on about matte lipstick (gag) and ombre lips (just, no).

Coming next week is Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss, a new formulation of 24 moisturising shades with seductive names like Opulence, Decadent and Impulsion. These are a non-sticky gel texture applied with a chunkier-than-before doe foot applicator in all the endorphin-rushing pinks and reds you could want.

The newness comes via Hydraboost Complex – an infusion of jojoba, sunflower and mimosa – for intense and long-lasting hydration. (It’s supposed to be extra plumping, but in all honesty I can’t notice much difference from the Lèvres Scintillantes glossimers – which are apparently being phased out.)

I’ve added the delicious Nectar (bottom right in the pic above) to my arsenal of sheer juicy corals and while it does need regular reapplying, I’m fine with that. At dinner with British Beauty Blogger, she was tres complimentary and that girl knows lip gloss.

The intensities vary, from sheer and subtle (my preference) to deeply pigmented. For added fun, there are three additional top coats to give existing lip colours an extra dimension. Caviar is a sheer ‘black’, Excitation looks gold but is actually transparent and Impulsion is a translucent, almost-neon orange to up the zing factor on classic pinks and reds.

Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss launches in the UK on March 10th. [UPDATE: These are now available at Harrods HERE, John Lewis HERE and HERE, and Selfridges HERE…]
