A French woman knows that a lipstick wardrobe is not complete without RED – as a little girl I idolized Diana Vreeland, the Duchess of Windsor and Coco Chanel. They were not only stylish and fashionable, they wore red lipstick. I wore the same shade of red lipstick during my twenties – True Red by Estee Lauder, until it was discontinued.
I had yet to find a red I’m loyal to – until now, This February Chanel unveiled a hydrating creme lip colour, and it’s available in 30 shades. Trying on the different shades of red lipstick I felt like a kid in a candy store, so many beautiful colours.
Speaking with Melissa the Chanel Rep I learned there were 5 popular colours of red lipstick, and a shade for every skin tone.
Paris – Blue red
Cambon – Bright red
Vendome – Orange red
Rivoli– Berry red
Gabrielle – True red
I fell in love with Gabrielle, and paired it with lip pencil #24 – My lips stayed hydrated and the colour lasted through out lunch time.
Some Key Facts about Rouge Coco:
Plant based – delivers long-lasting color and shine
Provides full coverage – available in matte or pearl to soft shimmer
Creamy light weight texture – softens and conditions lips – creating plumper, smoother and a healthier appearance.
I kept looking in the mirror, pleased with the effect of radiance a good red can deliver.
Rouge Coco gets a TEN!
Chanel Cosmetics sold at Neiman Marcus, Saks, Nordstroms, Bloomingdales and the Chanel Boutique in San Francisco.

Anita! I love your blog! I just added a link to my facebook so everyone can find you! You have a wonderful concept here and best of luck!
Thank you so much Melissa!! I loved your Web site too!! http://www.beplanned.com
It was a pleasure meeting you!! Let’s keep in touch!!
Anita – Thank you for your help. I took your advice and tried all the new Chanel colors. Rivoli paired with the Roux-Sienna lipliner looked the best on me, so I purchased it. Jarrad likes it, but I would love to hear what you think. I will wear it the next time I see you.
I’m so glad I could help – can’t wait to see it!!
Anita–I am addicted to your site. I know I can always count on you for the best beauty advice. I thought I would share my favorite RED lip gloss with you. I don’t normally wear reds (I wear more nude colors) but I am in love with Chanel’s Aqualumiere lip gloss in Party RED. It’s high-gloss, moisturizing and not sticky. It goes on a bit sheer but still red enough. And what I love about it, is when the gloss wears off, it still leaves a red tinge to my lips so I don’t feel the need to reapply throughout the day. Thank you for taking the time to create such an informative site and can’t wait for future blogs! 🙂 Kim
