Beauty Review: CHANEL Rouge Coco

3 makeup looks using CHANEL's Rouge Coco Ultra Hydrating range

A legendary makeup product and a must-have for all women looking for a loyal beauty partner for every occasion, CHANEL's Rouge Coco lipsticks have been revamped with the latest release of its Ultra Hydrating range. The multifaceted lipstick that embodies sensuality, joy, and radiance is re-formulated for even more gentleness, comfort, radiance, and melt-away quality. 

It comes in 29 new shades with hydraboost complex that ensures lips are dressed in a supple comfortable veil while intensely hydrated and nourished. The result: plump, smooth lips. Perfect for any occasion, whether it be work, brunch-date, or a formal affair, CHANEL's Rouge Coco promises exquisite colour and texture for a truly luxurious feel. 

Clozetter, Pauline Thum, recently got to give it a try and created three signature looks for the weekend. Armed with the colours 416 Coco, 434 Mademoiselle, and 444 Gabrielle, here are the looks she came up with! 


Look #1: Keeping It Simple

"The first look from the range was done with the 434 Mademoiselle, one of my all time favourite colours as it's slightly mauve with a rosy-nude undertone. I love this lip colour as it can be carried with minimal make up or with a slightly smokey eye look. It's a my-lips-but-better, with the extra shine brightening up a bare minimal-makeup look.

I love the new texture as it felt nourishing and glides on the lips easily, with a texture almost similar to a lip balm but with amazing colour pay-off. It also has a beautiful plumping effect that doesn't feel harsh at all on my lips. It contains ingredients such as Mimosa, jojoba, and sunflower plant butter which help create the added plumping effect."

Look #2: Casual Day Out

"For the second look, I opted for a brighter colour perfect for a casual weekend outing. I used 416 Coco lip colour with a light makeup base to even out my skintone and a thin application of black eyeliner and mascara for a fuss-free eye look. 

The 416 Coco shade is slightly orangey-pink which suits fair Asian skintones and adds a pop of colour to the face without being too over-the-top. It's an easy colour to pair with your everyday makeup look."

Look #3: Bold & Intense

"For my final look, I decided to go bold with the 444 Gabrielle. I have always been pretty cautious with red lipsticks and reserve it for days when I want to be a little bolder and daring with my makeup. However, you can never go wrong with a red CHANEL lip colour, so I wasn't at all surprised with how much I loved this lip colour on me.

The colour is pretty intense and the texture is very smooth and glides so easily on the lips. Its shine and intense colour definitely add a touch of glamour to any look--very luxurious! This is a colour perfect for attending events, weddings, or a night-out with my girl friends."


Overall, CHANEL has impressed yet again with this ultra hydrating range of their iconic Rouge Coco lipsticks. There's a reason why this lipstick line has been a mainstay in the makeup collection of beauty lovers everywhere--it is luxe and hydrating with a beautiful colour range that suits a variety of skintones and makeup looks.
