Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Esprit

Thursday 13 March 2014

I recently received a gift voucher for Franks (kinda the Maltese equivalent of Boots/Sephora - but not as good) and thought I what better way to treat myself than to splurge on a new Chanel Lipstick!

I'm still loving dark lips at the moment, I haven't fully converted into spring/summer mode just yet so I picked the most stunning raspberry colour lipstick in Esprit.

I love the Coco Shine forumla, it's so soft and creamy and I don't find it drying at all. The first colour I picked up from that range for 'Boy', which personally I think is such a classic colour it would suit all skin tones, it's a bit like - your lips just better kind of colour. Perfect for a first choice.

Any back to Esprit. The packing is the classic Chanel black and gold packaging, which in my opinion looks so elegant and is a timeless classic.The formula is rich and creamy and applies easily to the lips. The Coco Shine formulation is slightly sheer so the colour isn't over powering.

It's basically an all round great lipstick, no matter which colour your pick. Personally I would wear Esprit during the day and in the evening, but for some they may prefer to keep it as an evening colour. The older I'm getting the more adventurous I'm becoming with my day time make up, without looking 'too made up' . The only downfall to this lipstick is the rounded tip, which I personally don't lip, however since the pigmentation isn't crazy like the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks, it's not as bad. But for perfect lips I would still recommend applying with a lip brush for the outline at the least.

Have you tried to Coco Shine lipsticks - did you like them?

To keep up with my latest posts you can follow me on:


  1. I have L'absolu Rouge by Lancome in Bordeaux, which seems like it might be pretty similar. It looks like it might just be a bit darker than yours and I absolutely love it. It also is more sheer so if it starts to wear off it doesn't look like you are missing half of your lip like the bolder lipsticks, which I also love. I'll have to try this one as well and see how they compare!

  2. Such a beautiful shade! Haven't tried this particular line, but am sure it's fab just like anything Chanel. :)
