I am admittedly suffering from spring fever. It’s been unseasonably warm this winter and the weather lately (think sunny) has been getting me even more excited for spring to arrive.
Before Christmas the Chanel spring collection had already launched on makeup counters. I stopped by and had a look and was unimpressed by most of what I swatched and saw. It had so much potential but ending up falling rather flat for me. Anyway, I walked away with only one thing.
Flirt is a nice peachy-pink with a lovely golden shimmer. Although the Rouge Coco Shine formula is not my favorite of the glossy lipsticks, this color was too pretty to pass up.
Flirt on lips. It glides on evenly and smoothly, but the formula is a bit. This formula is not the most long lasting, about two hours on me. But, it’s one of those colors I can just swipe on without a lot of thought and it really brightens my face and adds just the right amount of color for day-to-day wear.
Swatches L-R: Giorgio Armani Sheer Lipstick #36, MAC Gotta Dash, MAC Full Speed, Chanel Flirt, MAC Flamingo
I don’t really have anything that is exactly the same, but one that’s kind of close. Flamingo is more pink and doesn’t have shimmer while Full Speed is not even close. Gotta Dash is more peach and doesn’t have shimmer and the Giorgio Armani lipstick is similar both in texture and tone but also lacks the shimmer and is less bright than Flirt.
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine retails for $32.50 at Chanel counters and online at Nordstrom, Chanel and Macy’s. Although I prefer the Burberry Lip Mist Formula, Chanel’s Flirt is a shade worth looking into for spring if you are OK with reapplying it somewhat frequently.
