Chanel Spring 2017 Rouge Coco Gloss & Le Vernis Nail Polish: Review and Swatches
For Spring 2017, Chanel is introducing a new line of lip glosses called the Rouge Coco Gloss ($37 CAD). Offering up a "refreshingly light texture" and a beautiful range of mouthwatering colors, the Rouge Coco Gloss boasts a rich and nourishing formulation that hydrates and conditions. Along with the glosses, Chanel is also adding a few brand new Le Vernis ($32 CAD) shades. To see some swatches and read my reviews, click.......

Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss ($37 CAD):
Formulated with jojoba, sunflower, mimosa, and coconut oil, these new lip glosses from Chanel varies in pigmentation, ranging from a sheer shine to a more intense lacquer. Housed in the classic gold and black Chanel tube, the Rouge Coco Gloss is equipped with a very unique curved doe-foot that's wide and fat at the tip. I'm not a big fan of the design because it feels very clumsy and chunky. A classic tapered doe-foot would have worked much better.

Formulation-wise, these are pretty light and non-sticky but nothing revolutionary. Their coverage and performance vary significantly so you definitely want to check them out in person or look up swatches online before purchasing. The gloss has no noticeable scent or flavor as far as I can detect. See below for a breakdown of these three shades.
Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss
768 Decadent: A sheer berry-wine, Decadent is quite patchy. The pigments settle directly into any fine lines so it's best paired with a base color.
776 Impulsion (Top Coat): Despite looking like a bright orange in the tube, Impulsion is a very sheer orange with just a soft hint of shimmers. With that said, this shade is intended to be used as a lip top coat, either over bare lips or a lipstick.
772 Epique: The most pigmented out of the three, Epique is a rich wine red. The coverage is a bit patchy and it feathers noticeably so I wouldn't recommend wearing this on its own. A thin layer over a similar lipstick shade is probably more suitable.

Chanel Le Vernis
Chanel Le Vernis | 568 Tulle ($32 CAD):
A soft light peach cream, Tulle was sheer as expected but the coverage was also very patchy. I needed three coats for the swatches below but the finish still wasn't perfect.

Chanel Le Vernis 568 Tulle; three coats with no top coat.
Chanel Le Vernis | 570 Androgyne ($32 CAD):
A unique dark granite with a hint of taupe and a very subtle splattering of shimmers, Androgyne is very pigmented and well-formulated. I used two coats for the swatches below.

Chanel Le Vernis | 572 Emblematique ($32 CAD):
This is a classic deep red with a slightly translucent finish. The formulation is semi-sheer but the coverage is delightfully smooth and even. I used two coats for the swatches below.
