There are three new lipsticks from Chanel for the fall collection:
- one Rouge Coco called Caractère #45 which is a neutral plum shimmer
- two Rouge Coco Shines Chic #73, a grey-tan beige and Parfait #74 a pink gold
The palette this season is quite light/neutral. I these ordered sight unseen from Bergdorfs. I wasn't quite wowed at first, but these apply much better on the lips.
Parfait is a pink gold that reminds me of a lipstick version of MAC Nymphette. It's visible on the lips and like most Rouge Coco Shines applies beautifully but sheer. Chic looks like an unappealing grey-beige. It has a bit of shimmer in it. I was surprised it applied much prettier than it looked in the tube. Still, given the sheerness I can't say it's a must-have. Caractère is a beautiful plum shimmer. The pigment is excellent and color is naturally flattering and polished. It reminded me of Culte (also a relatively new shade, but from a different collection). Side by side, Culte is more purple. They are similar on my lips, I prefer the Caractère because it has a bit more depth.
I wasn't really happy with the way the lip swatches turned out. The lipsticks are sheer but are visible on the lips. Unfortunately I don't think it shows up very well in these photographs. I highly recommend searching other blogs for better photos. Here they are anyways.
The fall lip picks all lined up (Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss reviews to finalize the fall roundup soon). I think the lipsticks this season are gorgeous and work extremely well for me. I can't say they are my favorites of all time but still beautiful options for fall. Out of the entire fall collection I would say that the Caractère Rouge Coco and the Troublant Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss are my top picks for lips.
