Boy, oh Boy... My first Chanel Rouge Coco Shine!


[pun intended! Get it?]

I'm sure you've already seen this lipstick a million times before, but I-just-couldn't refrain from posting about it anyway! This is my first proper high-end lipstick, it deserves its own post, dammit! Meet Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in the notorious shade "Boy"!

See, I renamed my little bloggie to Lipstick Wardrobe for a reason!
I might as well indulge into different kinds of lipsticks other than Mac ;)



Much like all other reviewers before me, I confirm that it's a lovely moisturising lipstick that, pigmentation-wise, it almost verges to a lip balm. I was a little sceptical at first about purchasing a sheer high-end lipstick that equals to 3-4 of say, Revlon lip butters; then again, most of my pigmented lipsticks collect only dust- aka team Violetta... Hence buying a €€€ lipstick that's sheer doesn't sound like a bad idea after all, right?



Since this is a sheer lipstick, the final outcome depends on your lips' pigmentation. Mine are fairly pigmented, so on me Boy turns into a transparent shiny rosy shade with some tiny, delicate, grown-up shimmer (as you would expect from Chanel!). Also, I don't get why some people insist of Chanel lipsticks smelling like "grandma's old makeup", cause this is definitely not the case! Granted, the one I have does have a faint smell of roses, but that scent is universally identified as "classy". Since when classy is supposed to be a grandma thing exclusive, I wonder...

     Got my little samples, too! Don't you just love to save these for travelling? Not that I travel much, but still...

All things considered, I'm happy to report my first encounter with high-end lipsticks has been a positive experience! Next on my list: a nice, pigmented lipstick (YSL Rouge Volupte, me thinks) and a fun lip gloss- the Clarins Lip Perfectors, to be exact!

Have you tried the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks?
What are your thoughts on the new lipsticks-slash-lip balms that have flooded the market at the moment?

  1. Congrats on your new lipstick Evi! I own just one Chanel lipstick in the Rouge Allure range. It's red so doesn't get as much use as I would like. I looooooooove the packaging of the Rouge Allures, you should have a look into them. I'm definitely impressed by my one, the pigmentation is amazing and it has great staying power as well as being moisturising! I have a ton of MAC lipsticks in nude shades but definitely want to move on over to Chanel nude lippies!

    I also really want to get at least one lipstick by YSL, Burberry and Tom Ford!

    1. Haha, I'm feeling you girl! I really want to own at least one lipstick from each of those brands! Ah the Rouge Allures have one of the most luxurious packaging for a lipstick, ever- anything that clicks rather than shuts to a boring sound is lush!!!

    1. Α τυχερή! Καλά που μου θύμισες και τα duty-free γιατί τα Chanel στα μαγαζιά δεν έχουν ποτέ έκπτωση 25% όπως τα υπόλοιπα brands...

  3. Me'geia!!!!!I have some stuff in mind as well (a YSL lipstick, a rouge in love lipstick and a perfume, a mascara and a nailpolish 'yep...I've gone sliiiightly mad') but I am waiting to get them from the airport since they are tax-free over here...as far as I know...!!
    Let us know how you like it. It looks like such a wearable and easy colour that I think you will get a lot of use out of. Also may I ask what is on your nails?

    1. That's why I decided on this colour, I wanted something fool-proof that I could wear every day and enjoy it! Ah the virtues of shopping at airports, it's been so long!!! The nail colour I'm wearing is really nothing fancy, I'm gonna blog about it real soon!

  7. The lipstick looks lovely! My first ever lipstick by Chanel was a Rouge Allure in Brilliant. I got it 6 years ago when i first started being into make up. The price really put me off though. 40E for a single tube of lipstick xDDD

    1. Oh I know, the goddamn Chanel pricetags! I guess they're keeping the brand's allure this way, though our beauty stores could include Chanel on their 25% sales. That never happens, ugh!

  9. I just have a sample of a Chanel lipstick, but I prefer the ones which are not so sheer :) But this colour is very beautiful.

    1. Oh definitely, pigmented lipsticks are fantastic- I chose to have a sheer Chanel lipstick so I can enjoy it everyday!

  10. Sheer lipsticks are easier to wear so I def use them a lot more. Pretty shade!

    1. Χαχα, κι εγώ "δυστυχώς" αρχίζω να αγαπώ τη Chanel κι αρχίζω να ανησυχώ! Όχι για μένα, για το φουκαριάρικο πορτοφόλι μου :Ρ
      Ακριβώς αυτό είναι το Boy, το πιο τέλειο MLBB!
