Today I want to show you my new Chanel lipstick – Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème lipstick #54 Le Baiser from the Avant Premiere de Chanel collection. I first saw this lipstick in the US last year; but it was too late to make any more purchases. My hubby was already glaring at me….seeing the familiar glint in my eyes…and I had to take one step back. And yes, actually I had exhausted my account doing shopping….and was occasionally digging into my hubby’s account. So there, a familiar story I guess for so many females out there…we do love our shopping, don’t we? Anyways, this Lipstick has been on my wishlist; since I saw it last year. However, this August, when I came to know my aunt was flying in; I sent in my looooong wish list…and she got all of them for me. She herself was most impressed with this shade; hence bought one for me and one for herself. So yes; this one is indeed a gift.

My Experience with Chanel Le Baiser Lustful Kiss Rouge Coco Lipstick:
I have always been impressed with Rouge Coco and Rouge Allure Velvet lines of Chanel’s lipstick range. Rouge Coco is a favourite classic. They still make the lipstick case the way they used to. The lipstick comes in a Black box packaging; with all details written on it. Inside is the lipstick case; which has nothing special; yet…OH MY GOD…it looks so special!!! It is simplicity and class carried out to the extreme. The design is ever green, completely ageless.
The case has the bullet inside. One sight of this at the store; and I was completely in love. Chanel describes this lipstick as a deep pink with golden shimmer. On me, it is not such a deep; as a more bright pinkwith warm undertones; with extremely fine micro-shimmer. The shimmer does not feel gritty at all; rather it gives a nice sheen to the lips. In fact; this one is an extremely pretty spring/summer shade; which I just adore. I have never tried such a shade; but I am delighted; this is so good.
The lipstick totally glides on the lips. It does not tug or pull at all. It is an extremely creamy lip shade; which deposits enough pigment in one stroke; without going overboard at all. The lipstick is not hydrating on the lips; it is just very creamy; but it is not drying either. It does not sit on my lip lines; nor does it feather or bleed at all. In fact, it totally abolishes my liplines….and makes my lips look quite glamorous for a daytime shade. I do not need to specially prepare my lips for it; it will be most forgiving on most lips. The lipstick does not feel sticky or balmy at all. I feel, Chanel has adequately controlled the hydration of this lipstick; so that it feels light weight and extremely comfortable on the lips.
It stays on my lips for 3.5-4 hours; with light snacks in between. But then, I feel that is to be expected from a hydrating crème lipstick. It has the typical Chanel fragrance; the old lady scent (or maybe a rose floral kind)…but I don’t mind the fragrance at all. It doesn’t last long; hence should not be a problem with anyone. It does not transfer on cups…rather leaves just an imprint of your lips on the cups. So, yes Ladies…go on…. With this lipstick…you may kiss as much as you want.
