I am happy to share with you all my first purchase from CHANEL, The ROUGE COCO Hydrating Creme Lip Color in Rivoli. I have for long wanted to add a CHANEL to my makeup stash and despite me planning about what would be my first pick from the brand (my long list consisted of maybe a Joues Contraste, an Illusion D Ombre eyeshadow and/or Perfection Lumiere Velvet), I ended up picking a lipstick. The much acclaimed Rouge Coco grabbed my fancy at the counter (oh! talk about a weakness here) and I came home with this.
To begin with , the packaging is all luxury and fancy and it screams class..I'm in LOVE!! The shade Rivoli is a nice Reddish Plum which is probably very unlike my preferences in lipsticks (Uh, no REDS this time!), but honestly I wanted something different, so... Rivoli is not a unique shade and you may find similar shades in almost all brands of lipsticks, however, the differentiating factor is the feel on lips. Soft, cushiony and utterly hydrating..
Leaving you with some pictures and a swatch for now. A detailed review will follow soon..
