Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 56 Chance

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 56 Chance is a neutral, warm-leaning pastel pink, and is one of the few with no shimmer.

Chance is slightly less sheer than the other Rouge Coco Shines I own. It is also not a good match for my coloring, and the texture is disappointing, applying a bit patchy.

Chance compared to Aventure and Romance

I had posted a Rouge Coco Shine lineup in my review on Fétiche, but here it is again for your convenience. You can see how Chance appears to be the lightest of the bunch, but actually Royallieu (upcoming review) is the most light and sheer. I guess I also need to review Boy and Aventure.

Here's a slightly closer view:

Bottom line: My first Rouge Coco Shine disappointment. However, if your skin tone is neutral to warm, and your lips are not terribly pigmented, this might be a gorgeous choice for you.

ELLIS FAAS: Fully-revamped Online Flagship Store

Good news: The ELLIS FAAS online flagship store has been completely restyled and is now live. The updated web site is loaded with new visuals, swatches, videos, testimonials, and more.Even more impressive, the store was nominated for an Awwward on its first day.

According to Thijs Faas, with the re-design they were "trying to make our customers feel at home, sense the atmosphere of the brand, visually inspire them and help to make an easy choice between all of the ELLIS FAAS products." I'd say they did exactly that.

Whatever look you want to achieve, from completely natural to dramatic, you will find it here.

I suggest you have a look. It is a stunning, visual explosion, backed by quality products that are tested on humans only.

And to make it all the more enticing the ELLIS FAAS flagship store is offering free, worldwide shipping. Log in or register and use coupon code SHIPPR when you check out. This offer is good for the entire month of July.

Disclosure: I have no vested interest do not profit from posting this article; I just love the brand.
