Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 99 Melancolie: Review & Swatches

8:53:00 AM

I grabbed one lipstick from Chanel's Fall 2015 collection, the Rouge Coco Shine lipstick in Melancolie. I talked about the formula recently here. The retail is $36 for that sleek, chic black metal tube.

The color is a shimmery warm rose bronze. It's sheer but still has a good amount of pigment. It has larger more prominent mostly pink but some gold shimmer as well, in addition to the smaller multi colored shimmer. It's not gritty or too glittery looking on the lips at all. It's got complex shimmer and is a nice nude shade. Perhaps more suited to summer than fall, but depends what you like. It adds a warm shimmery tint to lips.

Sunlight shows the shimmer better:



At first I compared it with Make Up For Ever's Rouge Artist Natural lipstick in N3 and Tom Ford's Lip Sheer in Bittersweet, as I really had nothing else similar to this shade. Neither are really close in color but I included the photos just in case it helps. I then added Tom Ford's Nubile which is closer in color but more pigmented, not shimmery and more pink.

Same as above then added Tom Ford Nubile below:

Later I realized I did have something similar, Surratt's Lip Lustre in Ensoleille. Both are warm shimmery bronze roses with complex shimmer.
