Sheer, Shiny Burgundy Chanel Esprit Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick Reminds Me of Weird Clothing

Say bonjour to Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine in Esprit ($34)

Random MBB Fun Fact: From sixth to ninth grade (circa the late ’80s, early ’90s) my idea of high fashion was Esprit clothing, and I loved it so much that I covered my walls in Esprit ads.

I lived for the rare times when my mom would drive me out to the Esprit outlet in South San Francisco.


Looking back, I ended up wearing some pretty weird clothes (don’t even get me started on the full body black-and-white giraffe print ensemble), but eh — at least my tweens were interesting. 🙂

Anywho, I think of those days whenever I wear the new Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Esprit ($34), a sheer and shiny burgundy lip shine from the Fall 2013 Superstition collection.

What should you know about Chanel Esprit Rouge Coco Shine?

  • It has a lightweight, non-sticky formula.
  • It’s fairly moisturizing, but not as moisturizing as something like a Clarins Natural Light Lip Perfector.
  • Lasts from 3-4 hours for me and fades to a pretty berry-colored stain.
  • Has a yummy rose flavor and scent.

    OOO now this looks like something I’d really enjoy! I don’t think I own a lot of similar shades, but I can probably pull this one off 😉

  2. Kim says:

    Another beauty from Chanel. 🙂 Thanks for the rewind to Esprit, too. Half my wardrobe and shoe collection came from Esprit. I loved it back in the 80s! Do you remember when Coca Cola had clothing? That was quite a hit for a year or so here, as well.

  3. Suzanna says:

    Love this one on you! I haven’t done too well with Rouge Coco Shine. My latest attempt is Scenario and it just doesn’t pack enough color punch for me. I like Esprit better and wish I’d bought that instead!

  4. Charisma says:

    I bought this over the weekend and now it’s en route to my home. I can’t wait to give this a try!

    It looks so beautiful but I think it’d look too dark on me.

  6. Kristy says:

    Funny – I think the late 80’s were a really interesting time for fashion. I was totally inspired by Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink…wearing a mishmash of 60’s stuff from our attic with leggings and boots. Head to toe giraffe? Own it, Karen!

  9. Sounds good! I love that fades to a stain instead of disappearing all together.

    Pretty color!

    This explains a lot. Lord I think you and my sister might have shopped the same Espirit outlets in the Bay Area during its heyday. She dressed me like a child size walking Espirit ad.

    I usually like rosy lip colors and I’m not sure why this isn’t engaging me. The price tag is probably it.

  13. Iris says:

    Quite a bit of my wardrobe came from Esprit. I went for the basic black clothes and they were perfect for work clothing. I wish they were still around in North America. Those are both really pretty lip colours.

  14. Sheer berry pinks..yes please! You look great here Karen!

    Karen, you look absolutely STUNNING in the whole series of Chanel articles you’ve recently posted. I want it all. Unfortunately I’ll be away when it comes out in the Netherlands, but my favourite SA will be keeping my choices aside for me.
    I was deeply disappointed when they “intensified” the Rouge Coco Shines and made the colours so deep; I adored them for their sheer, subtle glossy nature. But this colour looks lovely, I’ll try it out!.
