Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick 04 Cashmere – Swatches & Review

I’ve already talked quite frequently about my love of Chanel’s Rouge Coco formula. This is pulled from a previous review I made:

I love the fuller coverage colour these lipsticks provide and the fact that they aren’t overly creamy. I don’t care for lipsticks with too much slip that feel like they are moving all over my lips all day. I’m also really happy with the lasting power with this formula. I don’t exactly find them moisturizing or soothing as Chanel promotes but they are not drying at all for me either. My lips stay healthy wearing them. Here is the description from the Chanel US website:

CHANEL introduces a modern interpretation of classic creme lip colour as an homage to the rich life and legacy of ‘Coco’ Chanel. New lightweight lip colour glides on for easy application, and features a Hydratendre complex to help soften, soothe and condition lips – even boosting their ability to hold in moisture – for a plumper, smoother and healthier-looking appearance. A range of wearable shades with full-coverage finishes, from matte to pearl to soft shimmer.

Cashmere is not the kind of shade I’m typically drawn to. I’m instantly attracted by bright and bold colours when looking at lipsticks. I find myself having to make a conscious effort to peruse and select more sedate shades. Cashmere became mine after a long search for a “nude” type of shade that wouldn’t wash me out as most in that classification tend to do. Cashmere has been a big hit for me. I think it has actually appeared in a number of my Face of the Day posts. I don’t think I’ve really ever wore Cashmere just by itself but I love layering it under all sorts of different glosses. Actually Cashmere, and another of my favourite Rouge Cocos Organdi Rose (yet to be reviewed), get a lot of use this way. Cashmere is a beautiful peachy beige with shimmer that has enough colour to still brighten up my face.
