The texture of Orchidee is like number 5 Mademoiselle, very creamy, and it's easy to apply evenly. It doesn't dry or wrinkle your lips. It's just wonderful. As I found out all Rouge Coco lipsticks don't share the same texture, some are creamier and the others are dryer. You really should try it on and wear it for at least 2 hours to decide if it's the right one for you. With the expensive price you pay for a Chanel lipstick, you probably want to double make sure you are not getting a dud.
It's pink, red, coral, all three in one. It's flattering enough and very wearable for everyday. It pulls more pink and red than coral, that makes it also suitable for fall and winter. It is muted, so it doesn't pull hot pink or fuchsia. It's pigmented, I like pigmented lipsticks.
This color is a tough call. Why? Because Orchidee is not striking. When I first applied it, I thought it was quite flattering. As time went by, I kept checking the mirror to see the color under different lighting, indoor lighting and outdoor lighting, I liked it less and less. I was trying to figure out why I wasn't crazy about it, I guess the color looks a little salmon to me. Even though it's still flattering to my tanned skin tone NC20, salmon is just not the color I fancy. The color is like for old ladies, it's safe, maybe too safe? But not classy enough like Mademoiselle. At least Mademoiselle is the Chanel signature color, it gives you that soft and classy look. Orchidee feels like a librarian trying to flirt but wanting to be discreet about it. Come on!
In the end, it's all about the price point. Has it been a tad cheaper like Shiseido cheaper, I would have collected this color out of my impulse. With this price tag (it's probably the highest price among all department store brands, a few brands are as expensive as Chanel, but I don't remember any brand exceeding this price point). you want the color to be special.
