Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Evasion

This lipstick was very much a grower for me. I had swatched it at the Chanel counter many a time, fell in love but never walked away with it in hand. However when I did get round to purchasing it, it took a while for me to really enjoy using it. I had heard so much about these lipsticks, I sort of felt the need to join in; everyone raves about Boy and Chance but you don’t really hear too much about this colour, Evasion. In fact it’s one that most counters don’t even have out on display, so you have to ask to get a peek, I guess that makes it feel even more special!

This lipstick does exactly what it says on the tin, and gives sheer, hydrating colour – you’re not going to get much pigment here but you are going to end up with glossy lips with a pinch of colour. Their glossy nature means that they don’t last long on the lips, two or three hours at most before you need to reapply; but you sort of know you’re in for that as it’s not exactly your typical lipstick – more of a lipstick/lipgloss hybrid. Now for the colour – think MAC Shy Girl but with some added coral warmth. It does have a hint of golden shimmer running through it, but it’s undetectable once you apply it. If you’re a lover of peachy pinks like myself (who isn’t?!), then it’s a dead cert that you will fall in love with the shade. I’ve actually found it to look petty bloomin’ fantastic when paired with the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Shade 2 for an extra peachy sheen.

I think the reason it took me a while to get on with this lipstick is that I got the Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Lipstick in BG922* around the same time and that offers a similar finish but with a much more opaque colour, so when I compared it against the Chanel I was a little disappointed, especially considering it’s extortionate price tag – *cough* £23 *cough*. But after a few weeks of giving it a test I think I can now see what all the fuss is about. In a nutshell these are the perfect Summer lipsticks – a hint of colour, moisturising on the lips and a glossy finish. I may have to indulge in a few more colours and let me tell you now, it has absolutely nothing to do with the uber-luxe Chanel packaging 😉

    Lovely colour but I always have second thoughts about channel lipsticks, they look so good but just feel like a colour lip balm, at a very high price. 

  • Nicola

    I love the colour though i dont think i can justify the price for a few hours wear /:

  • excellent blogpost! & lovely colour!
    random, but do you have any tips on how to become popular makeup wise on youtube?xxx

  • Such a gorgeous colour! It’s a shame that it would only last 2-3 hours for £23 xxx please check out my new fashion and beauty blog!

  • I love the chanel coco shine lipsticks! 
    After this post I’m tempted to add evasion to my collection, already existing of chance & bonheur xx

    Beautiful lipstick!

    I have the color 52 Fetiche and I really like it. I really only like sheer lipsticks and tinted lipbalms and I’ve been hearing about the new Loreal Caress Lipsticks lately and they sound amazing! You should try them and let us know what you think and how they compare to the Chanel ones. Unfortunately they haven’t made their way to the US yet so I can’t try them myself.  

  • This is one of my go to easy to wear lipsticks. Love the colour, looks great paired with Coralista blush and a little bronzer.

  • I saw this colour last week, but I’m kind of torn between Bobbi Brown “salmon” and this. I love the packaging on these better, but the colour of salmon is a little more appealing to me??!!

  • Popping this on my Chanel ‘hitlist’ hahah (: I have Boy and Aventure, which I’d both recommend! They’re not too sheer so make the price a little more justifiable! xx

  • I love the color! very shine and shire! thanks for sharing!

  • Lucy

    it’s a very pretty colour! i would buy a peach lipstick if i could only find the nude i’ve been searching for!

  • Jessvanityproject

    Love my Rouge Coco Shine, although it’s sort of difficult to justify the price tag when there are Revlon Lip Butters out there. Also, don’t you find that you get through it like it’s going out of fashion because the longevity is so – frankly – poor? You’re very lucky to be able to carry off those beautiful nude shades. Keep up the good work! By which I mean blogging, rather than wearing gorgeous lipsticks.

  • Luceloves

    Wow I really like this, I’ve been looking for something with a coral finish to it!
