I have serious #grabbyhands for the new Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush launching March 2nd. The antithesis of the dead-nude lip we've been seeing for far too long, this six-shade range is so pretty and youthful and fresh – all-ages Best You. My favourite kind of makeup.
Meant for cheeks as well as lips, Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush is described as a light hydrating gel consistency, made emollient with jojoba, mimosa and sunflower oils, plus a conditioning coconut derivative and a "trace peptide for a plumping effect."
When used on cheeks, try one dot for a subtle effect, or three for more intensity, advises Chanel. Notes the press info reassuringly: whatever oil the skin doesn't absorb after Lip Blush application just flashes off to leave a matte but radiant wash of colour.
The shades: 410 Corail Naturel (peachy pink); 412 Orange Explosif (vibrant orange); 414 Tender Rose (universal rosy nude); Teasing Pink (intense pink with a hit of fuchsia); 418 Rouge Captivant ("the ultimate red"); and 420 Burning Berry (chocolate purple).
I adore lip-and-cheek makeup – more often than not, I've got lipstick or lip gloss on my cheeks as blush anyway. I'm also about a less-is-more natural makeup look, for which these types of items are well suited. (Obvi they'll work for a more done look too.) Aaaand they're ideal for that back-of-the-Uber makeup-application habit I'm trying (a little) to break.
Not sure when I'll be able to get #grabbygrabby with Rouge Coco Lip Blush, and I haven't got the retail info yet, but in the meantime, here's the brand video featuring Lily-Rose Depp.
Anyone else into lip/cheek set-ups? Got thoughts about Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush?
