Review of Chanel Rouge Coco No. 21 - Rivoli by yum_yum
Very sophisticated dark-burgundy colour on me -- approximations of this colour are available in almost every lipstick line, so this isn't incredibly original.
As all my reviews for this line indicate -- the Rouge Coco formulation is moisturising but unfortunately not as pigmented or deep as Hydrabase. I bought this with some leftover birthday giftcards (ha!) so no huge loss.
The colour is very much like the burgundies Hydrabase used to make (they made the best wines, burgundies, cool maroons etc.) but, and this goes for most colours in the Rouge Coco line and also many of the Rouge Allures, the RC shade of wine is more likely to work with cool and warm tones.
I'm warm neutral (MAC face & body C4) and this is a very nice, deep colour that doesn't pull too purple. Nicely done.
Lasting power of the entire line varies from colour to colour -- this is a less dense, less long-lasting colour. It faded and left a bit of a ring around my lips. But absolutely no dryness and I have a feeling it'll apply better with primer. Will not repurchase. Will look fab with perfect matte skin and mascara.
