Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in Gabrielle
A lot of you already know that I recently won a Chanel lipstick from The Misty Mom’s giveaway a couple of weeks ago. It is absolutely one of the highlights of my entire blogging experience. I think I spent a good amount of time jumping up and down around my room when it was announced on her blog. I was so so grateful. Shari The Misty Mom, and Mari of Beloved 7 Shop, who was also a part of the giveaway were kind enough to let me choose what lipstick color I wanted. And this is it ladies and gentlemen, behold my first ever Chanel Red Lipstick.
“A modern interpretation of classic creme lip colour as an homage to the rich life and legacy of ‘Coco’ Chanel. Lightweight lip colour glides on for easy application, and features a Hydratendre complex to help soften, soothe and condition lips – even boosting their ability to hold in moisture – for a plumper, smoother and healthier-looking appearance. A range of wearable shades with full-coverage finishes, from matte to pearl to soft shimmer.” – Chanel
PACKAGING. As always, I am a fan of Chanel’s simple but elegant packaging. A sleek black case with gold details is a safe design and yet I highly appreciate it. The actual lipstick has the word Chanel embossed on it. I wasn’t able to snap a good photo of that part so I didn’t include one. The product has a nice light floral scent to it, very similar to the Chanel pressed powder that I have. It is not a strong scent, in fact you won’t really notice it unless you move the product very close to your nose.

COLOR & TEXTURE. The color is absolutely divine. It’s a gorgeous, sultry, bright red color that has a slight shimmer to it. My lips are full and I usually do not like applying a lot of shimmer or gloss to them because it can make them look a lot bigger. But this somehow worked for me. It is pigmented but you can build up the color into a shade that you prefer.
The texture is very smooth and creamy. It glides smoothly on your lips when you apply it and immediately make them feel moisturized. I usually condition my lips with lip balm before I apply any lipstick, but you do not need it with this lipstick. However, this product does highlight dry skin on your lips so make sure to properly smoothen them out with lip scrub before application.

APPLICATION. Because of its bold red color and high pigmentation slight imperfections in application can be very noticable. You definitely need a lip pencil liner to smoothen out the edges and corners of your lips. This is also the time where a tiny lip brush can come in handy.
I didn’t use any lip liner in the pictures I have here, as you can see the edges are quite imperfect. It bothers me a lot and, surprisingly, bothers my boyfriend even more. Every time he looks at me and sees any imperfections or color transfer on my teeth he points it out. It’s like I have my own personal lip watcher every time I am with him.
LONGEVITY. One of the reasons why I waited a few weeks to write a review on it is to test the longevity of the product on different occasions. This lipstick can last for up to around three to four hours on me with out me wanting to retouch it. Which, I must say, I am a little disappointed in. After four hours the color gradually fades a bit. Even as it fades you can still get away with the red stain that it leaves on your lips. However, since the color is at its best when its not faded you are going to want to keep retouching it over the day. As for if it will survive meals and drinks. I’m going to discuss it with its transfer issues.
TRANSFER ISSUES. Yup, unfortunately it does have a downside like most creamy lipsticks have. The only thing that I didn’t really like about this product is it has major transfer issues. Bad enough that I do not prefer wearing this if I know that I am going to have to eat messy food. The second time I used this lipstick I had to eat a taco. After a few bites, red stains were all over my food. Very unpleasant. And the color on my lips became unforgivably messy. When it comes to eating simpler foods, the stains may not transfer easily to your food but you definitely need to retouch afterwards because the color will fade from your lips. If the lipstick is not properly applied it can also leave stains on your teeth.

Even with the transfer issues I still love this lipstick. The color with its slight shimmer is too beautiful not to love. The texture is amazingly moisturizing. However, because it doesn’t last very long, it can get messy when you eat food, and it can transfer to your teeth easily, I would need to pick the days where I want to wear this lipstick. I would probably not wear it on a regular everyday basis but it can be great for events and days where in you are more careful and have a lot of time to check your make up and retouch.
That color looks amazing on you! I love Chanel lipsticks, but you're right – they do tend to transfer quite easily. Great review!

It's nice but quite expensive. Red looks good on you :)
It really is a lovely color!! That's too bad that it's not more long lasting – but that kind of goes to say with more moisturizing lipstick, at least that's with my own personal experiences. Great review Shayne! ^__^ Lovely photos too!
But…I like bigger lips!
Gah, that is one gorgeous and intense red. Such luxurious packaging, I'd be afraid to use it at all *-*
Congrats again! :D

Wow, that lipstick looks so good on you! You are so lucky to have such full lips! Red lipstick really suits you well, it looks like a really nice lip product! That's unfortunate that it transfers to food easily, I hate when that happens. The advantage to creamy lip sticks are that they are moisturizing though! Congrats on winning it, that's so exciting!
Thanks for leaving such a darling comment on my blog!
What a classic and beautiful red!
Have the best day ever,
That looks awesome on you. A very seductive look. Haha. Really? Your boyfriend notices that? xD Lol. I don't know if that'd be convenient or annoying as hell.
Ang hilig mo sa lipstick! Haha And I guess you love the shade of red and it suits you well! I wanna see you wearing ung parang black or violet! Request! haha
what a gorgeous color! you look so pretty!
waw è stupendo…*_*
OOOHHHH, love the texture and it has got a nice shimmery effect as you mentioned. The lipstick can definitely pull off any outfit. Love the colour and does suit you well.

SO pretty! You pull off red lipstick so well!
Love this gorgeous red hue, its really bold and thats the best thing about it!
that color look so pretty on you! I love the color itself. It's so bold and I love the shimmer in it!
I too get bothered when there are imperfections with my lipstick application. I have very dry lips so lipstick can be a pain sometimes!
That red suits you. Nice oomph for boring days. :)
oh my— it looks GORGEOUS. So jealous ;)
p.s. thanks so much for the follow! Following you back.

Oh my goodness, I'm jealous!! hehe, I haven't had the chance to get my hands on Chanel lippies yet, I can't wait to get one asap. :) I love that colour on you sis! Although it sucks about the transfer issues, I would expect perfection from Chanel. I'm guessing it's a hit or miss when it comes to the shades from the collection. It happens to alot of lipsticks, some colours are perfect, and some have issues with the formulation. You still look gorgeous with it though! :)
Take care always, love Christine ~ xo

Hips Like Cinderella
wow… that's a really beautiful red color for you ! <3 I have been looking for one that match me ...
Beauty review, D.I.Y, Beauty Tips and more…
I love this color! It's been months since I've worn red lipstick mostly because I'm such a mess at it. I am probably the only one that has lipstick transfers in the most odd places! Although a friend and I have a theory that they probably transfer to my fingers first and THEN to weird areas such as the hem of a top I'm wearing or somewhere on my thighs. Bright red lipstick on food is shocking to me, almost making me want to scream bloody murder! Haha!
BUT it is gorgeous and will be kept for those special spanks and amazing dress events where you eat finger food and wear those super high heels that pinch a little.
I love your picture by the way! I could never do that breathe in look with my face, I always look like a drugged up rabbit of sorts :D
It's such a beautiful red color! Suits you well sis :)
Woww….you have such beautiful and perfect lips! Love the lipstick color, it's gorgeous! Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you have a fabulous weekend filled with fun and sunshine<3

The colour is gorgeous but it sounds like a high maintenance lipstick already haha
re: Oh my white bag from that outfit is the Louis Vuitton Lumineus and the bag charm is a macaron one I got from Ladurees! I hope that helps, oh museum movie (night at the museum?) is based on the American Museum of Natural History, not directly filmed there lol (I just wikipedia this)
very pretty red <3 the shade very suit on you dear,,you looks so pretty <3 its a great reviw about chanel lipstick,,i wish someday i cant have it *because is so expensive* hahaha

thanks sherlaine! ^^
thanks michelle! :)
thanks sammy <3
thanks sam! ^^
The color looks lovely on you, but I think that for such a steep price it should be flawless. If you need to reapply a lot then you would go through the lipstick quite fast.
i have dry lips as well! :( and most of the times its flaky. thank you mindy! <3
thanks bee <3 welcome to my blog!
thank you anni <3
i had high expectations too ^^ but for a creamy lipstick its okay i guess. haven't really found any creamy lipstick that last super long and doesnt transfer a lot, especially those with bold colors ^^ thank you sis <3
very well described :) thanks suzie!
indeed :) thank you imogen <3
aww thank you ^^
thank you kaye <3 they are quite expensive :(
thank you stephanie ^^
thanks shari! <3 i hope you don't get tired of me saying thank you haha ^^
thank you <3 if i am not mistaken thats their matte lipsticks? i really like them too. went to the counter and tried them unfortunately not a lot of colors were available here :(
thanks yomi <3
thank you :)
thank you sis <33
thanks margaret! :)
thank you! :)
thanks maria! :)
yes indeed ^^ thank you E <3
i share the same opinion judith :) i had high expectations, but i also think that for a creamy lipstick its good enough. i try to compare it with other high end brand lipstick that ive tried and pretty much they are on the same level of longevity. its just harder get away with with bold colors. ^^
i pray and hope that you will have it this Christmas! ^^ thank you ehara <3
haha thanks for googlin it ^^ it is very high maintenance, maybe it would work better if i had a lip liner? will try it sometime, thanks suki <3
Haven't tried Coco just yet, because I am going through the Rouge Allure collection first haha but this looks amazing! A pity that you need to reapply often though.
You Look Flawless!!
And, The Pics Are B'ful!
originally my plan was to try that line first too ^^ i like matte lipsticks alot and i heard they are really good :) thank you natasja <3
thank you! :)
Wow! I love the color! Very striking! :-)
im glad you like it! :)
