Rouge Cocos are supposed to be moisturizing, and while I did find Charme to be more hydrating, this one was consistent with the past ones I've tried, which is not really moisturizing but not drying. It wore for three and a half hours.

Chanel Esprit Rouge Coco Shine is a new shade launched with the Chanel Collection Superstition for Fall 2013. Chanel calls it burgundy but I think the shade runs more towards a berry pink and has a more fun element for Summer than Fall.
Let's see what you...
On average, Rouge Cocos last four hours on me. I like the formula overall, and the shade range tends to be very wearable with a wide variety of colors from pinks to browns to reds.

I only get an hour and half to two hours of wear with Chanel's Rouge Coco Shines, though, which is below average for a lipstick–and Chanel says these have "lasting moisturizing shine." Rouge Coco shines feel more like lip balm when applied, because they have an emollient base that enables...
