Chanel Rouge Coco Shine – Bel-Ami

My fiancé went to LA with work a couple of months ago and while he was there he bought presents for the children, but struggled to find something for me. He’d wanted to get me some lipsticks as he’d seen me talking about them on Twitter but was nervous about buying anything without me there as he thought it all looked a bit too garish and was worried I wouldn’t like them. So when he got back he took me to John Lewis so I could pick some myself, woohoo! One of the lipsticks I picked was Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in shade 66 ‘Bel-Ami’ (£24.00).

I LOVE the packaging of this lipstick. Everything about it oozes sophistication. I feel like a proper grown-up using this! The lid goes back on with a good ‘click’ so there are no worries about it coming off and getting ruined in your handbag (I have had this happen with so many lipsticks)!

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks are hydrating sheer lipsticks. Bel-Ami is a soft, tea-rose pink which gives that ‘just bitten’ look. It has the lightest touch of shimmer and has a lovely sheen. The first swatch is in direct sunlight, the second is in normal light. This lipstick is so moisturising, it makes your lips feel like you have got some lip balm on too. Being such a sheer shade I worried that it might not be very long-lasting, but actually it lasts pretty well! It leaves a little bit of a stain on the lips too.

I love my new lipstick and am really pleased that I got to pick it myself as this is such a pretty, wearable shade. It’s my new favourite!



  1. What a gorgeous colour! I've just added this to my wishlist eventhough I already own far too many lipsticks x

  2. I love all Chanel products - if I could I would have a make up bag full of them - sigh! In my dreams. This looks lovely.

    1. Maybe one day we'll have make up bags full of Chanel! xx

  3. Well lucky you! Looks gorgeous inside and out...

  4. It's so pretty, love the shade x

  5. Awww that's so sweet of your fiancé. That's such a lovely colour.

  6. I do love that 'click' shut of an expensive lippy! This is such a good 'throw on and not worry' colour xx

  7. I have a Chanel lip gloss that leaked all over my bag *must buy more* ;)

  8. Love the shade and the little bit of shimmer it has, the packaging really is so gorgeous as well! x
