Usually when someone says, “I’ve been dying for…” it’s a figure of speech, but perhaps not when it comes to Chanel. I think I actually was dying a little bit every day waiting for the new Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks ($32 each) to arrive, and WOOHOO! They’re finally here!
These luscious, shiny ladies are like Rouge Coco’s wilder, more impulsive younger sister. They feel smoother, lighter and thinner on my lips than the RCs do — similar to the MAC Slim Shines — and last about two hours on me.

The colors are arranged into four groups — Roses/Pinks, Violets/Berries, Reds/Corals and Neutrals/Browns. Here are some hand swatches, with lip swatches (and requisite gushing, as I can already see some that I know I’ll like) coming in the days ahead. Holla at me in the comments if you see something you like.
