New Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss

When everybody else seems to be flaunting tinted lip balms and novel new lip pigments, Chanel has chosen instead to release a whole new class of lip glosses. The Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer is a classic in the Chanel makeup repertoire, and one that long-time fans (myself included) have relied on time and time again. It was quite a shock to many of us to see that the entire range has been discontinued, and it is interesting to see how much better the new Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss can get!
Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss for Spring 2017Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss is formulated with skin-loving ingredients to make your lips healthier and smoother with continued use.  Natural jojoba, sunflower and mimosa waxes, and coconut extract help to keep the lips moisturized and shiny.  Volumnizing Peptides and Vitamin E plump up the lips and keep lines and wrinkles away.

In addition to the lip-loving formula, the new Chanel Rouge Coco Glosses also pack more pigment within.  Whilst not as opaque as the Rouge Allure Glosses [reviewed here], the colors are noticeably more intense than the previous Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer.  The finish is also more gel-like, using film-formers and translucent glass beads to give a glossy shine rather than shimmers… there are still some of my beloved shimmery shades in the range, but far less than before.

Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss - applicator comparison

To aid application, Chanel has replaced the older doe-foot applicator with a wider, angled tear-drop shaped applicator. This is to help spread the pigments in the gloss more evenly and over a wider area, so that you do not need multiple strokes to cover the entire lip.

Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss - packaging comparison

There have been slight tweaks to the packaging to give the new Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss a more modern appeal.  The tube is more angular and less rounded on the sides, the gold band at the neck is thinner, and the Chanel logo on the top is now silver rather than gold.  Just minor aesthetical changes to help differentiate the old and the new… I personally rather prefer the new less-rounded sides as I can now stack them better!

Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss swatches

There are 24 shades in the new Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss collection, including 3 unique topcoats.  I have 1 of them here – shade 774 Excitation – which is a shimmery gold topper with a translucent base that can be used on top of any lip color to add a bit of oomph.  There is a darkening topper called Caviar, and a orange-red Impulsion to warm up lip colors with too much blue in them.  I have also swatched 5 other shades from the permanent range for your reference:

  • 119 Bourgeoisie – is a chic mauve with some pink and gold shimmers…. one of my favourites!
  • 728 Rose Pulpe – is a light pink with some pale pink and purple shimmers
  • 748 Nectar – is a brightened vermillion with a cream finish
  • 762 Heart Beat – is a cool-toned red with a cream finish
  • 766 Caractere – is a deep plum with a cream finish

All the shades wear superbly, the darker creams leave a light tint on my lips even after being worn off with eating and drinking. Longevity is as you may expect with a gloss, though with their moisturizing and non-sticky properties, I really don’t mind touching up throughout the day.  There has been a Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer at every major event of my life, from high school prom to my wedding day, and I look forward to making more memories with the new Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss!

Out now in stores, go out and have fun!

    I now have four of the new glosses: Rose Pulpe, Tendresse, Amarena, and Confusion. They’re gorgeous glosses and I find them very hydrating. The old Glossimers were beautiful and I really liked them, but they did nothing to hydrate or soothe my lips. The new RC Glosses do both 🙂 I also like the larger applicator although, in truth, having a side for the lower lip and a side for the upper lip is gimmicky. It really doesn’t matter which side I use to apply the gloss to my upper and lower lips, the result is the same–a smooth, even distribution of product. I’ve worn my glosses alone, under a lipstick, over a lipstick, or over a coordinating lip pencil and have been pleased with the results and wear every time. If people can just get over their disappointment about Glossimers being discontinued, I think they’ll find much to love with these new ones.

    • Hi Eileen, I know I can always count on you for really deep and insightful analysis. I think i’m emotionally attached to the glossimers…. but these feel very similar to me. I don’t typically reach for glosses to hydrate my lips, but there was 1 day that I actually did without really thinking about it… so that goes to show the heart knows what it wants!
