I finally caved on this despite the reviews. It is all everyone says. It is a sweet sexy light colour which just adds a little lift to my rosy lips. As such it is very seductive which is the only reason I am keeping it. It doesn't last very long and it is not very hydrating. I am hoping to find a drug store purchase like Burt's Bees that is the same colour but is a more substantial product (hydrating, lasting, spf, nourishing). Meantime I'll keep it but I won't repurchase it.
UPDATE: Downgrading this to a 1 and returning it. It lasts about 15 minutes.

So I'm on my yearly crusade to buy/try all items applicable to me in the Allure Best of Beauty and as I'm always a sucker for pink lip stuffs, I was excited to try their pick for Best pink lipstick: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Sheer Hydrating Lipshine (geez) in Boy!
First off, I'd like to say that the texture and feel of this lipstick/balm hybrid is lovely. Went on very smoothly on my lips. Also, the color looks beautiful in its fancy black Chanel tube.
Unfortunately, I could BARELY see it on my lips. I get more color on my lips from the cherry Chapstick lip balm. Which is less than $2 at my local Target. ;-) I think it might look prettier on someone w/ fairer skin, but not remarkably so.
Luckily, I tried this on the fly @ the Macys counter - and by the time I left the store, the tiny smidgen of color was all gone.
I honestly don't think I'd even buy in a different darker color. I'll stick to Maybelline Baby Lips or the cute Revlon balms at <1/4 the price. ;-)

It gives a perfect shine with (transparent) color that looks natural. Also moisturizes lips and it'a actually like wearing lip balm. I love this color for everyday natural use.

This is a nice little lip balmy kind of thing. It is a MLBB on my dark lips--just makes them look a bit more pink and glowy. Boy is a mauvey pink that has those tiny, non-disco ball glitters in it that Chanel is masterful at wrapping into their lip products. You don't necessarily look like you have makeup on after an application. You just look a little more healthy and polished. That's lovely, but I don't know that I would buy it again...just because I like a little more snap and dazzle from products this expensive. I keep it with me all the time because you don't have to look in the mirror to apply it. It's truly fail-proof for gals with pigmented lips.

I love this color! super blendable and just a gorgeous mauvey pink to brighten up paler complexions. I do wish it lasted longer. You can layer Chanel's glossimer over it & that helps :)

This color is gorgeous on naturally rosy, pigmented lips: it hides the ashiness of dry lips and adds a beautiful glow. I wish it lasted four hours plus, but the product's sheerness makes it easy to reapply on the go.
EDIT: Removed one star because, on average, each application only lasts one hour. Hoping for a dupe with a better formula.

Sheer mauve pink balm. Kind of like the Revlon lip butters. Little flecks of glitter. It's one of those safe shades that you can throw on with out a mirror in a hurry. Nothing miraculous or special about it. Nothing really bad to say about it either. I wear it a few times a month because I keep it in my purse as a safe color that goes with all makeup looks, clothing, and moods. It functions as more of a touch up color later in the day. Let's put it another way - I don't grab for it when I'm going for a statement. Has a weird smell that I'm not crazy about.

Perfect MLBB. I love the glossy, light finish too; I'm 19 and don't want to look caked in makeup. It is SO easy to apply, I can do it in the dark and it looks flawless. It isn't moisturizing, but it isn't drying either. I usually keep my lips coated 24/7 with the EOS ball in Tangerine for the winter, so that takes care of the moisture. Its by far my favorite lippie to wear for every day!

I really loved the slip and feel of this. Unfortunately it's not very long wearing and the color just feels a tiny bit off to my light-medium olive skin tone.

Firstly, I'd like to say that I love the colour of this lipstick. It's a classic, your lips but better colour. I love the texture of this, it's so beautiful and feels so hydrating! The only problem with this is it's staying power, it doesn't last for longer than about half an hour, which is really disappointing for £24.I'd love to say I'd buy this product again but I'm a poor student and will be saving for something a little more reliable. *cries*
