Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush + Valentine’s Day Picks

Chanel Beauty Rouge Coco Lip Blush Review and Swatches | The Beauty Look Book

Chanel has quite a few new launches this spring and today I’m thrilled to give you a peek at the new Rouge Coco Lip Blush along with some other picks for Valentine’s Day in fragrance, nails and lips. Right now it appears most of these are exclusive to Chanel.com, I suspect they will trickle into stores and counters soon.

First is a selection of options in the scent Chance Eau Tendre. This is a bright fruity floral that has grapefruit, green notes and quince mixed with jasmine and a bit of mush. It’s very spring-like and romantic. If you like this scent in the Eau de Toilette form you can now wear it in a number of ways including the Body Oil Spray (lovely lightweight feel with excellent packaging), Moisturizing Body Cream (luxurious smooth and cooling on the skin) and Hair Mist. My favorite is the Hair Mist because it has enough throw but is still soft enough that it’s not overpowering. The entire line smells like spring.

The Rouge Coco Lip Blush is a unique lightweight gel product for lips and cheeks. The colors are vibrant and bold in the tube but once you blend the color sheers out quite a bit for a soft tint. On the lips I can layer easily for more color – it’s not something you have to pack on to get to show up. On the cheeks however the gel is quite sheer and a tiny bit dewy for a very natural youthful glow perfect for spring. There’s no detectable scent and these come with a soft double sided sponge applicator.

On the lips I apply directly with the sponge. On the cheeks I make three to four dabs of color and then blend with the fingers. I was initially worried that my foundation and powder would get the sponge dirty but as long as you dab lightly there’s no issue. Also these work really well over foundation and powder. As long as your base isn’t super matte and super heavy you can layer on top and blend without it looking like you caked on product on your face.

The six colors include:

  • 410 Corail Naturel sheer medium peach pink
  • 412 Orange Explosif bright orange
  • 414 Tender Rose sheer medium warm pink
  • 416 Teasing Pink bright sheer cool pink
  • 418 Rouge Captivant bold classic red
  • 420 Burning Berry deep brown plum

To me, Corail Naturel and Tender Rose look almost identical on me. The difference is very slight with Tender Rose having just a bit more pink. Those two are also the sheerest. Swatched below blended versus layered to show how much the color sheers out:

Wearing each of the colors on both lips and cheeks. As you can see below the colors on the cheeks are very sheer when blended. They give just a soft hint of color with a dewy finish. Also wearing on the face is the Estee Lauder Doublewear Nude in 3W1, MAC Next to Nothing Pressed Powder in Medium Plus, Hourglass Arch Brow Pencil in Warm Brunette (I can also pull off Soft Brunette).

Everything is swatched on bare lips, nothing else is ever added unless I list it in the descriptions above. Corresponding color is also on the cheeks blended except for 414 Tender Rose which you can see dabbed on one cheek and blended on the other.

Overall lasting power is medium, on the cheeks they stay put for a few hours but due to the dewy nature they can get a tiny bit shiny looking. On the lips these feel like a weightless gel. Lasting power is good for a few hours and the deeper shades leave a tiny bit of a stain. The lighter shades fade on me fairly fast. Overall thoughts are that these are true to Chanel’s style of the simple classic kind of beauty. I wish the neutrals had a bit more pigment because the colors are PERFECT! They do make for a very nice barely there polished look though. My favorite out of the entire bunch is Teasing Pink. It’s a sheer hot pink, the sheerness makes it wearable for me.

There are a lot of other coordinating products to go with the new Rouge Coco Lip Blush in lipsticks and nail polishes. I don’t have any to review at this time but if you’re interested in anything let me know in the comments.

Last but not least are two classics, they aren’t new, but the Chanel Le Vernis in Shantung is a classic red perfect for Valentine’s Day, but really wearable for year round. Rouge Allure Velvet in Rouge Feu is a classic warm bright red fr the lips if you’re looking for something bold.

Bottom line lots to love for me. The weather is warming up here which makes me feel ready to break out the spring scents. Chance Eau Tendre to me is a perfect warm weather fragrance that’s feminine and light but not too strong. For the Rouge Coco Lip Blush I really like the colors as I think they’re going to be flattering on a number of skintones and would have bought them even if I didn’t receive them as press samples. I’m still trying to get used to the formula as I’m normally not really into gel products but I like that they give a very fresh faced look. Given the lightweight practically weightless feel I know I’m going to appreciate it a lot more once the weather warms up and humidity rises.

You can find the Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush, Chance Eau Tendre, Shantung and Rouge Feu all on Chanel.com. For a limited time they’re offering complimentary overnight shipping on all US orders placed by Tuesday February 13 at 2 PM, I do believe anything with nail products have to ship ground though.

Have you tried the Rouge Coco Lip Blush yet? If yes what did you think?

    The lip blushes look so very nice! Thanks for the swatches! It’s a shame that they only last on the cheeks for a few hours, I wonder if there’s a way to get them to last a bit longer… still, looks like such a cute and fun easy product to stash in your bag for a pool or beach day. The colors are gorgeous.

  • Glenda

    I love the idea of these lip blushes. Cute name, too. Shame that the lasting power isn’t there, but I guess it is to be expected.
    You look lovely wearing all of your color choices. 🙂

    • To be fair, I think lasting power is decent, it’s just not going to be budge-proof.

  • Collar Wilson

    My favorites on you are the Corail Naturel and the Tender Rose although I have to say that you look beautiful in anything! I have the Shantung nail polish already. I purchased all of the newly released nail polishes on Chanel.com.

    • Ooooh!!! Let me know what you think about the new nail colors.

  • all that jae

    OMG the tender rose color; so pretty! Love that it’s dual-purpose!

    I was hoping you’d review the Lip Blush! Burning Berry is calling my name, even though it’s not a typical spring/summer color. It’s a great concept. Super review, and you look fabulous!

  • chelsealee

    I personally think the orange and the rouge captivant look fabulous on you. Chanel are a hit and miss for me in makeup especially mascaras. Love your blog….how old are you may I ask?

    • Thanks Chelsea! You can ask anything – I just might not always want to answer, lol.

      • Eileen

        LOL But then, hopefully, we all reach the age where a number is no longer a testament to how long we’ve been on this planet; rather it is a symbol of all the richness we’ve had time to experience in life. As the saying goes: Live long and prosper 😃

  • Marina

    Thank you Sabrina! I love the Tender Rose 🙂 looking forward to see it in Aussie stores 🙂

  • Chanel for me the fragrance favorite. There are a few hit and misses for me when it comes to makeup. I am yet to try the lip blush

    • Oooh which Chanel is your fav?

      • The madomaselle lasts all day on me. I can smell it even after I shower! That is my staple perfume. As much as I love the No.5 and it’s subtle powdery scent, it doesn’t last long on me. The L’Eau has a wonderful scent that made me buy it the first time I smelled it. However. Just like the No.5 this formula doesn’t last too long on my skin.
        The Les Beiges Healthy glow powders are amazing, but I would prefer the Guerlain ones a bit more due to its ease of blending and the way it gives a more natural glow. I have the Chanel highlighter , but i incline a bit more towards NARS or Bobbi Brown since those products have finer flakes and therefore easy to blend.
        I have been using the Le Teint powder foundation for a few years now, and this is the only compact I keep coming back to. I am yet to give a fair chance to the lip products from the brand though! 🙂

  • Marcia Scully

    Hi Sabrina, I like the Tender Rose. I tried the YSL lip/blush a few years ago (same concept) but wasn’t very impressed. Although I love the idea of multiple usage products, sometimes it’s better to have them separately….

    • I think those YSL ones were best on the lips too. The Chanel is a bit more versatile, but in general I agree with you!

  • Eileen

    I think we’re all so appreciative of the time and effort that goes into your lip swatches. You’re one of the very few bloggers who get it right and present reliable swatches especially since you are always forthright about mentioning your pigmented lips in those situations where it impacts the color. Since I have very rosey lips, I know how that can really skew the look of products that are on the sheer/transparent side.

    There seems to be a consensus building here—Tender Rose looks lovely on you. All your lip swatches are incredibly good and brands should be beating a path to your door to get you to model their lips products, but Tender Rose looks like it is well within your comfort zone while providing a refreshing breath of spring.

    • Thank you Eileen, you’re so kind!! I was surprised how well these showed up on the lips given their sheerness! Hope you are well 🙂

  • Nemo Saint Claire

    I bought the lip blush in Teasing Pink. I also bought the Exquisite Pink polish from the same collection. I returned both. The lip blush is ridiculous. Too sheer, does not last at all. The polish was too similar, almost identical really, to other Chanel polishes I own.

    • You’ve saved me $$ on Exquisite Pink Nail Polish then!

  • Suzanna

    As usual, all of the lip colors look great on you! I saw these last week over in Jax and wasn’t swayed but will say that they certainly look gorgeous (I prefer plain old lipstick to anything more innovative). I am overall a huge fan of Chanel lipsticks for their staying power and creamy formulas (Jean is a fave of mine and I still have multiple back-ups of Rayonnante).

    • Thanks Suzanna! You’re so sweet. If you’re not 100% swayed I’d say yay for your wallet because it looks like a lot of things are going to launch for late spring to summer!

  • cpbebe

    what a fun option for those who want to simplify makeup looks, or travel/gym bag. They look good on you- Teasing Pink is my favorite. And Shantung, my favorite recently released Chanel red. Perfection on your nails!

    • You put it perfectly! These are indeed great for on-the-go 🙂 I agree Shantung is a classic.

  • GreenTea

    Another red nail polish, thank you CHANEL, that was what I was missing and what excites me. Truly. Urgh.
