Chanel | Rouge Coco Flash Lipstick: Review and Swatches
New from Chanel comes a range of sheer lipsticks with the tagline of "color, shine, and intensity in a flash". Available in a whopping total of 30 shades (6 of which are limited edition), the Rouge Coco Flash ($46 CAD for 3 g) promises an ultra-hydrating wear and a glossy oil finish. To see some swatches and read my review of a few shades from the line, click......

Packaging:
The Rouge Coco Flash is housed in a sleek black and gold lipstick case almost identical to that of the Rouge Coco Shine, with the exception that cap of the has a transparent top which shows the color inside. The bullet has a flattened, slanted tip to accommodate the balmy formulation and packaging is nicely weighted for an extra touch of luxury.

Formulation:
Infused with oils of mimosa, jojoba, and sunflower, the Rouge Coco Flash is a high-shine sheer lipstick with an ultra-slick and hydrating formulation. The pigmentation is fairly sheer but there is some variation between the shades. The color feels soothing and weightless and the balmy texture makes the lips appear plump and voluminous. In terms of wear, the formulation falls short, especially with the sheerer shades, which fades within a couple of hours even with minimal eating and drinking. Overall, this is a lovely range of luxury tinted lip balms with a lightweight and comfortable wear. Personally, I don't think these are very different from the Rouge Coco Shine formulation but the new packaging and shade selection is fun and refreshing.

78 Émotion: This is a very sheer coral pink with just a hint of fine, pearlescent shimmers.
91 Bohème: While appearing super bright and intense in the tube, Bohème is a sheer watermelon red that looks super juicy and summery.
92 Amour: This is a bright pinkish red. Similar to Bohéme, Amour is a shade that also applies much sheerer and lighter than it appears in the tube.

94 Désir: The most pigmented of the six here, Désir is a gorgeous berry pink. This one lasts a bit better than the rest but the color doesn't leave a stain.
*Update*: I experienced significant bleeding with this shade when I applied several layers for a more intense finish. Additionally, the color faded in a way that left an unflattering rim around the out edge of my lips. These weren't problems with the other shades but it may be the case with other darker, more pigmented colors in the collection.
200 Light Up: Described as a color-enhancing top coat, this is a transparent balm scattered with fine golden shimmers. I personally would pair this with a pigmented lipstick as the Rouge Coco Flash shades are already super shiny on their own.
202 Warm Up: Another top coat, this is a sheer orange dispersed with fine golden shimmers similar to that of Light Up. Because the base is tinted, the shade can be worn alone as well as on top of a base color.
