CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine in #507 Insoumise

Another love for CHANEL Beauty.

Hello! I can't believe it's already 2018 (Phew!) with many ups-and-downs on last year 2017, I'm finally able to manage it till this point. High-end product obviously something I'm hesitate to spend unless it delivers outstanding performance, aside to indulge my bad craving for lavish products. I believe every woman deserves to be the very best version of them self and self-love should come first; nobody can love you more except yourself, and please don't relate this post as egocentric self empowerment. It's a reminder for every woman to appreciate herself first before love another.

My self appreciation comes in the form of spending on lavish products with a certain reason; self appreciation mantra "I deserve it after working hard' or emotionally chosen because it reminds you with certain occasion or place. Ok, enough about the rambling.

My next purchase from Rouge Coco Shine range based on my satisfied experience with RCS in "Liberte". It delivers subtle amount of gloss without drying your lips. Retailed for SGD 41 (IDR 450.000) and available exclusively on Chanel boutiques or DFS.

Brief introduction; Chanel Rouge Coco Shine promotes a healthy, luscious lips with shiny finish. The case is typical Chanel packaging; black, sleek and classy. Coco Shine has slimmer and smaller tube than her sibling Rouge Coco which comes in denser and creamy finish. Has 3gr net product and Made in France (oh là là). My previous review of Rouge Coco Shine "Liberte" can be found here.

Outer Box


"Insoumise" or simply google translate it as "Rebelious", is a warm-coral shade which leans to red. The pigmentation is sheer but build-able with subtle shiny finish. Staying power lasts for 2-3 hours and needs re-application after starts to fade away. It covers dark-lips perfectly and wont create bulky nor patchy dry flakes; however prep your lips to achieve lustrous shiny finish.


As you can see, Insoumise is more vibrant and red than Liberte; Insoumise also more vivid than the predecessor. It was launched as part of Chanel 2016 Summer collection (If I'm not mistaken). Insoumise delivers clear and shiny texture whereas Liberte has micro shimmer but hardly seen because it's more noticeable one the bullet and required thorough observation.

My Verdict?
I'm really enjoying Rouge Coco Shine range because it delivers shine with classy finish despite the enormous wave of liquid-matte lipstick trend. It successfully portrays the epitome of Gabrielle Chanel: Classy. Insoumise is more 'traditional' than Liberte due to the absence of shimmery particles but can manage to transform whole look into sophisticated style. Single swipe creates effortless shiny finish and add more swipes to create bold and vibrant look with intense shiny finish. However, after several hours the shiny finish starts to fade and will leave stain behind; not only subtle stain color but more intense stain. RCS range is something I should have and collect from Chanel Beauty, therefore I don't regret any single penny spend despite the hefty price.
