Dagnabbit, Coco! Why you gotta make me fall in love with you over and over again? Your three new
limited edition (I just found out these shades are being added to the permanent line, huzzah!) Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour Lipsticks ($30 each) from the fall 2010 Les Contrastes de Chanel Collection sing a summery song of seduction, and you know what? I’m totally listening.
Each fall dark, serious shades and heavy matte textures crop up on makeup counters, so the pink, peach and coral lippies in Les Contrastes are welcome breaks from the norm. The colors make me think of summer sunsets, like the one I just missed tonight!
Chalys, the shimmery coral, adds a bright but not overwhelming pop of color to pouts; while the other two shades offer sophisticated options for nude lip looks. Try Chintz (the soft peach) if you wear warm-toned shades well, or Rose Dentelle (the cool baby pink) if cooler colors suit you better.
All three colors grace lips with that classic Rouge Coco texture — smooth, light and oh so moisturizing.

The last time I felt this inspired by a Chanel fall collection was 2007’s Garden Party. Yah, last year’s Venice Collection had some memorable moments, but lipstick-wise, I think these three new shades are a lot more exciting and wearable.
Did I mention that I love these to bits? Le sigh! Available next month at Chanel counters and online at chanel.com. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. We made it over the hump, gals! After the excitement earlier today, I’m happy to report that things slowed down in my neck of the woods. How was the rest of your day?
