Chanel Mutine #90 Rouge Coco Shine, Bliss #181 and Tocade #182 Glossimers | Collection Variation

March 24, 2014

I picked out three lip colors from Chanel’s Collection Variation: Rouge Coco Shine in Mutine #90 ($35) and Glossimers in Bliss #181 and Tocade #182 ($29.50 each). There is a mix of repromotes and new shades for this lips collection. Many of the colors seemed very similar to previous releases so I limited myself to a few of the lip items plus the new Coup de Couer #609 Le Vernis  (reviewed here).

Mutine #90 Rouge Coco Shine is a soft shimmering silvery pink. Bliss #181 Glossimer is a warm peach with subtle gold flecks. Tocade #182 Glossimer is a sheer reddish plum. All are on the sheer side but each color can be layered for a bit more color. These are lovely subdued classics.

Here are the colors swatched side by side:

Close up of Mutine #90 to show the pink base with silver sparkles. This one was fairly pigmented for a Rouge Coco Shine, I found it showed up well on my pink lips without washing out my complexion.

Bliss #181 is a sheer peach with gold flecks. The shimmers don’t really show up on the lips. Although Bliss is on the sheer side, I found it covered my entire lip quite well. Tocade #182 looks like a cool-toned plum in the tube but it applies more red on my lips (many plums end up fuchsia or red once applied). It is very sheer but your mileage will vary depending on how much you layer on.

I couldn’t find any duplicate colors with other glossers or rouge coco shines.

Below are comparisons: Burberry Cameo (is more orange), Tom Ford Love Bruise (is more brownish), Burberry Oxblood (is more fuschia/cooler), Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy (is darker), Chanel Parfait (is sheerer and has gold shimmer), Chanel Fetiche (discontinued, is darker).
I’m overall pleased with Bliss Glossimer and Mutine Rouge Coco Shine. Tocade is a lovely plum but I was a bit disappointed it turned more reddish on my lips. As of right now, both Bliss and Mutine are listed as limited-edition colors on Chanel.com (see all the colors in the collection listed there). The Collection Variation should be at all Chanel counters now since it was released over a month ago in stores. I’d recommend researching the color selection online first before going instore – sometimes the items in tester units can get switched around making it difficult to figure out which colors are truly new (versus repromoted colors).
Glossimers retail for $29.50 each and Rouge Coco Shines retail for $35 each. You can find the Collection Variation online at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bloomingdales and Chanel.com.

  • I was just going to comment at how red Tocade pulls on your lips! I actually went to apply mine to check, but it's a much cooler plummy pink on me. I liked this little collection, but I only picked up Tocade, along with Emotion Rouge Coco Shine from the Spring collection.

    I had to order Mutine and Bliss after seeing this. Gorgeous pics as always!

  • It is the same with me; plum lip gloss tends to look more red when applied on my lips. I have NARS Bougainville gloss and when applied, it seems to have the same color as how Tocade appears in the tube. Perhaps you should check this one out if you are looking for a more plum-colored gloss.

  • They all look beautiful on you!

  • Bliss is good to wear over a lipstick

    • Its gorgeous in combination with the Satisfaction lipstick!

  • Hi Sabrina,

    All three of your picks from CHANEL Variation look gorgeous on you! I think my favorite here is the Rouge Coco Shine in Mutine … I'll have to try it out if I have the chance πŸ™‚

  • Finally a beautiful review of some products from the COLLECTION VARIATION here in Holland it has launched for a while know could not find many reviews was so happy to read yours. I got mutine and bliss as well love them both. A tip for those who want more you can build up the mutine by using the lippencil in rose clair 88 its the same colour with the same beautiful silver sparkle in it. And bliss I often use over the rouge coco shine in Satisfaction from this collection as well. Have a great day!
