Each and every Spring I find myself lusting over all the new collections – and, with so many gorgeous new offerings popping up on my radar, 2015 is shaping up to be no exception. This year, however, I’m also eagerly anticipating the (revamped) release of an existing favorite: Rouge Coco by Chanel. According to what I’ve been reading in the press:
This Spring 2015, Chanel introduces the new Rouge Coco Lipstick. The formula is entirely revamped for even more gentleness, comfort, radiance and melt-away quality. Integrating their new Hydraboost complex, the lipstick leaves lips with a supple, comfortable veil of hydration which deeply nourishes and plumps lips. The formula also allows for build able coverage, with a natural effect with just a single stroke or two strokes or more for even bolder color. The collection features 29 new shades in 6 colour palettes (Nudes, Oranges, Pinks, Rosewoods, Reds and Plums), each named after the friends, loves and muses of Mademoiselle Chanel.
Now, almost all of the 29 shades are ‘oh so wearable’ and -ideally- there would be a full collection coffret available for sale (& we’d all be millionaires, with nothing better to spend our money on than lipstick). Alas, however, there is (we are) not and we will thus have to choose & invest carefully – especially at $32 a pop. Here’s a rundown of the different palettes and shades, to make our task a tad less impossible:
The names in bold represent my favorite shade from each palette. If I could afford the whooping $192 (app. 166€) price tag & provided I was happy with the new formula, I’d probably get them all. The way things are, however, I think I’ll opt for Nº444 Gabrielle (I’m always on the lookout for my skintone’s perfect red) and either a nude (like Nº406 Antoinette) or a slightly darker color (like Nº430 Marie or Nº438 Suzanne). God… Chanel is making it hard to choose with these shades!
How about you guys? Are you looking forward to the new and improved version of Rouge Coco (available March 2, 2015 @ Chanel Counters)? Will you be trying it out and, if so, which shade(s) are you gravitating towards?
