Swatchtime | Chanel Rouge Coco and Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks

6/27/13

Does anyone else use the saying "so many swatches to do, so little time"? Or maybe you just use the "so little time" bit instead, which is exactly what I've been feeling lately.
There are tremendous amounts of things to fill the day with!
On this particular day, I chose to fill my day with lip swatches of these wonderful Chanel samples:
Rouge Coco Shines: Fiction, Saga, Monte Carlo and the Rouge Coco Lipstick in Le Baiser

Since I already have a Rouge Coco Shine and a Rouge Coco Lipstick I know the textures and qualities of these lippies and I die-hard love them (and anything Chanel, so maybe I'm a little biased). I will say that I find Monte-Carlo to be a little too sheer for my liking (and for the $40 price tag) so I can say I wouldn't purchase that one. 
I really love Saga and Le Baiser and would most likely purchase those two if I was in the market for lippies. Saga, even though its a Shine lippie, is actually quite opaque and imparts a beautiful pink-nude that would show up on more pigmented lips than mine. Le Baiser is beautiful bright pink that would also look lovely on yellow-based or pink-based skintones alike. 
If you're the kind of girl that's hesitant to wear full-on dark lipcolour but still wants to try out the trend, then I would recommend Fiction, you can layer it on accordingly to get a more sheer finish or a more opaque colour.

What did you ladies think of these swatches? Love em or leave em?

À Bientôt Mes Amours,
Kisti Belle
