Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in Mademoiselle

Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in Mademoiselle

Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle is one of my all time favourite lipsticks. This also happens to be one of my first ever high end make up purchases. The packaging is very understated - black with a gold band around the middle and the tell tale Chanel logo on the top. 

This is what Chanel says about this lipstick:

A modern interpretation of classic creme lip colour as an homage to the rich life and legacy of 'Coco' Chanel. Lightweight lip colour glides on for easy application, and features a Hydratendre complex to help soften, soothe and condition lips - even boosting their ability to hold in moisture - for a plumper, smoother and healthier-looking appearance. A range of wearable shades with full-coverage finishes, from matte to pearl to soft shimmer.

This is a really lovely everyday lipstick that I often carry around in my bag. It's not quite as bright as in the photo, but is what I'd describe as a plummy pink. I've had this lipstick coming up to three years now (I'm sorry but I'm not going to throw out a Chanel lipstick after 18 months, regardless what the advice is) and it's still going strong.

Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick is as Chanel describe it, hydrating. I usually wear a lip balm under this but I've never found it to dry out my lips when worn alone. This isn't a statement lipstick like some I own, and I think it's quite understated so you could definitely get away with doing more with your eyes.

I would definitely recommend trying a Chanel lipstick from this range. I truly love this lipstick and even my Mum has it! The reason I chose this colour in particular was because it looked rather lovely on Vanessa Paradis in the ad campaign:

The price tag of this lipstick is what puts me off 'investing' on more colours from this range at £24.00 a pop and can be bought online, here.

Having said that, after a quick look on Debenhams' website today I have noticed that they have 10% off across their beauty range and free delivery making this currently £21.60.

Their promotion ends tomorrow, but if you're looking to purchase any high end items I'd recommend doing it this weekend!

Do you own any lipsticks from Chanel Rouge Coco? What do you think of them?

  1. I have seen this lipstick advertised a lot in the past and the price tag initially out me off, but seeing your picture of it has changed my mind. I feel like I need it now! I love hydrating lipsticks. I'm sold! Thank you haha

    1. I will admit I originally bought this at the duty free because it seemed so expensive, but this is actually my second lipstick - my mum checked it out and didn't wind it down properly and smushed the top of it so she bought me a new one and kept the smushed one for herself.


  2. Such a stunning color:) x
