Chanel Avant-Première de Chanel Ce Soir, Le Baiser Rouge Coco & Suspense Rouge Coco Shine Sneak Peek!

Chanel Suspense Rouge Coco Shine, Le Baiser Rouge Coco, Ce Soir Rouge Coco

A while ago we saw a lot of eyeshadow launches, but now lip products are taking over again! Chanel Avant-Première de Chanel collection will soon hit the shelves with 8 Rouge Coco Shines, 6 Rouge Cocos, and 4 Le Vernis (available in Belgium: April 15th. RRP for the lipsticks: 31 euros. Le Vernis: 23 euros). But that’s not all! Later there will be some new Les Lèvres Scintillantes and Rouge Allures. Let’s just say if you are a fan of Chanel, it’s going to be a good year!

Today I have three of the new shades including Ce Soir Rouge Coco (51), Le Baiser Rouge Coco (54), and Suspense Rouge Coco Shine (80) to share with you! I really only had the time to photograph and swatch them, so I won’t go into details. Do expect to read all about them here soon though!

Chanel Avant-Première de Chanel is inspired by Hollywood glam. As far as I can tell, the Rouge Coco formula hasn’t changed. On the other hand, the range of Rouge Coco Shines has been extended with deeper shades. Chanel also claims they now have 30% additional pigment, and let me admit pigment always sounds good in my book!

Ce Soir is a plummy brown, Le Baiser is a bright pink coral with golden shimmer, and Suspense is a juicy fuchsia with shimmer. Suspense is actually my first Rouge Coco Shine. Maybe the 30% of additional pigment is true, because the color payoff seems really good. I’m getting my hopes up!

Also, if you’re wondering what that little golden room is in the first picture, it is the most adorable miniature Coco Mademoiselle! I’m still waiting to hear back about whether it is a gift with purchase and if so, what the deal is. I will keep you posted for sure, but in the meantime let’s just gawk at it!

EDIT 12th April 2013: I’m really sorry guys. This is apparently a press teaser and not a GWP. Apparently I’ll receive more information soon so I will keep you posted!

It will break my heart to actually use this miniature bottle of perfume!

Did you see anything you like? Are you a fan of the existing Rouge Coco Shines or are you a fan of deeper shades and more pigment? Is anyone’s signature scent Chanel Coco Mademoiselle?

    Must get my hands on the Le Baiser Rouge Coco. Such a gorgeous color.

    • Sunny

      YES YOU SHOULD, Angela! I know I am very biased, but I wore it all day yesterday and it just blew my mind!

  • Claire

    OMG, that is so cute!! I don’t know if I would call coco mademoiselle my signature scent but I like it 😉 I already know that I have to stop myself from getting more reddish lipsticks but suspense looks beautiful!!

    • Sunny

      Good to know! Well Suspense is very fuchsia so… it shouldn’t count LOL

  • peggy timmermans

    Ohhh I love them! And they have so many colours to choose from, nice!

    • Sunny

      Yup the line-up keeps getting bigger!

  • beauties

    that miniature 😮 that’s the cutest thing ever!

    • Sunny

      I know!!!

  • Redhotjillypeppers

    The miniature in the box is just too cute !

    • Sunny

      I know! It’s the most mood-lifting thing ever!

  • Caise

    oh my God. oh my God. Le Baiser and Suspense… <3 I might be in love.

    • Sunny

      Haha I wore Le Baiser yesterday and I already am in love! Hiiiigh hopes for Suspense too!

  • Lily (@ChloeAsh)

    I use Coco Mademoisells nearly every day for the last few months. That miniature is so adorable!!! I want one of those!!!

    • Sunny

      Hey Lily, glad to hear you’re a fan! I got a little sample (with spray) when I purchased something else yesterday, and I can’t wait to try it! Unfortunately the miniature turned out to be a press tease :( I wish I could give all of my readers one!

  • Annick

    LOVE Suspense! And I already love Rouge Coco Shines so … damn, that’s one I’ll have to get!

    • Sunny

      Haha YES you have to! I love how pigmented this batch is!

  • Kristi C. (@lov2read68)

    Sunny, the miniatures are absolutely darling! And Suspense has my name written all over it! It reminds me of Clinique’s Fresh Watermelon which is a good color on me. I’m nearing the end of my tube & am having an internal debate – do I repurchase something that I know works or do I branch out and try a new color in a formula that I know works on me, the Chanel RCS. #firstworldproblemsIknow

    • Sunny

      Hey Kristi, wow you’re using up a lipstick! Kudos! You should check the new Rouge Coco Shines out. The info I got says they’ll be available here on the 15th but I already saw them in stores yesterday. I swatched the cherry red in the line-up too (Dialogue) and it’s also super pigmented and shiny!

  • Yolennie

    That box is so pretty! Gosh, that’s the cutest perfume I’ve ever seen >< Adore the cherry red color!

    • Sunny

      Hey Yolennie, that miniature is really record cute! Suspense seriously is way pigmented and shiny!

  • ValleyDoll

    What a cute little thing ! Love the new lipstick shades !

    • Sunny

      Hey Eva, I saw yesterday the lipsticks are already available! I’m now eyeing something else… of course!

  • Liz

    More than the bottle, what will you do with the box that it came in??? So adorable!

    • Sunny

      I will just leave it in there and put it on display! I will like NEVER use it. It’s too cute!

  • Taylor

    Le Baiser is so beautiful! And omg that perfume display is just so lovely. I adore little things like that and it’s the cutest little bottle!

    • Sunny

      Hey Taylor, Le Baiser really is beautiful and the formula is fantastic! I have a real soft spot for miniatures too and this is by far the cutest thing I’ve seen! I was hoping/guessing it’d be a GWP but unfortunately it’s a press tease. Now I feel bad!

  • Sasha

    Le baiser looks so nice !

    • Sunny

      I’m with you 100%, Sasha! I wore it all day yesterday. The formula is great too! It leaves a strong and even stain!

  • Kiss & Make-up

    All gorgeous! Impossible to pick a favorite :-O

    • Sunny

      Oh for me it’s all too easy (a coral? Doh)! Though I have high hopes for Suspense too!

  • Anne

    Yes, yes, yes! I love Rouge Cocos (I own only two, but I’m looking forward to expand my collection!), and both shades look very nice. I’ll eagerly wait for you to tell us more about this collection!
    It does seem like a lot of new products in one go. Do you know if they’re discontinuing some to make some room? Because I’ve been eyeing a couple of Rouge Cocos for a while, and I’d hate to suddenly discover they’re unable to be found (it actually happened to me with Ballet Russe, which I found on ebay after calling countless retailers).

    • Sunny

      Hey Anne, glad to hear you’re a fan of Rouge Cocos! I’ll try my best for sure :)

      I didn’t receive any information about them discontinuing anything, so I am not too sure. I actually think it might be a good idea to ask the SAs because they might know better!

      • Anne

        That I will! I hope it won’t be too hard to find one who can provide me with reliable information. I’ve met so many helpless SAs (some great ones too though!). I remember one telling me that they had not received the new Chanel Rouge Allures… which were just behind her back.
        I looked up online though (on Find discontinued products page or what’s its name), and it seems that they are discontinuing some Rouge Cocos and Rouge Coco Shines. Including Venise, which I was eyeing. They are also discontinuing Chanel Black Pearl and Quartz nailpolishes, which I love to pieces. I’ll have to stock up… Damn you, Chanel!

        • Sunny

          OOO I didn’t even know there would be a webpage for that! Thanks for the heads-up, Anne! Black Pearl and Quartz are so popular I have problems figuring out why they would discontinue these two. Maybe they have something better coming up? Let’s hope so!

          • Anne

            I didn’t either, thanks Google! It allows US-residents (only! Urgh) to purchase discontinued products on this page, so I figured everything that has been newly discontinued should still be there.
            I know! I’m shaking my head in bewilderment. Then again, it’s the same brand that put off the shelves the famous Rouge Allure Laques…

  • Dovey

    Hi Sunny,

    The fold out Chanel is TOO precious! I think I’d have to put it on display somewhere! :)

    • Sunny

      Hey Dovey, totally! I’m going to put it in my book cabinet that has glass doors!

  • Rainy Days & Lattes

    OMG, that perfume is SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!! I might just die if i held it. It’s so so precious. I use that scent almost daily! 😀 I switch it up between Chanel and Burberry but I love the bottle of the Chanel so much. And the lipsticks!!! I never knew i was such a big Chanel fan. I think after seeing this post, nothing gets me more excited than Chanel and Dior!

    • Sunny

      OOO I’m glad to hear you’re a fan of Coco Mademoiselle! I’ve always thought it’s something I would appreciate, but I just never got to try! I got a little sample when I bought something yesterday though, and I will give it a good road test now!

  • Joyce (bronzerbunny)

    that packaging is so cute!!! :) i bought a chanel lipstick a long time ago and thought it was too pricy and drying at that time… one day i’ll get another one for keeps! lol

    • Sunny

      Hey Joyce, I think I’m relatively lucky when it comes to lipsticks. Not so many formulas are drying on me! I wore Le Baiser all day yesterday, and my lips were just fine at the end of the day. I hope you’ll pick another one up at some point, and I hope it’ll work for you!

  • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    OMG that little bottle is so darn CUTE. Love the lippies! Even the brown one looks wearable!

    • Sunny

      Hey Tracy, I know! I think Chanel has big plans for Coco Mademoiselle this year. I walked past by a department store that was being renovated yesterday, and the outside was COVERED with Coco Mademoiselle images! I still have to try Ce Soir on. I hope I can handle that much brown!

  • wheetnee

    Oh my flipping gawd. Le Baiser. Must …have..
    And the packaging of the perfume was the first thing that caught my eye. Everything is so girly, I love it!

    • Sunny

      I KNOW! I’ve been having so much fun with Le Baiser! It’s not so easy for me to find a coral pink that actually looks more pink on me, so I appreciate this shade to no end!

  • Catherine (@bcrueltyfree)

    These shades aren’t quite “must have mode” inducing for me, but they are pretty :)

    • Sunny

      Oh for me Le Baiser is an instant must-have, but you know my thing with corals 😉

  • Marijke

    The box looks soooooo cute :-) Pretty lipsticks!

    • Sunny

      I know!!! I was so bummed out to find out it’s not actually a gift with purchase. Wish everybody who likes Coco Mademoiselle would have a chance of owning it!

  • Dominique

    I purchased Sentiment and Liaison this week, both shades are very pretty and so easily wearable. The formula is very good as usual, I love the RC and I’ve planned to get more from this collection but they are permanent so I’ll wait a bit ! The 6 shades are great, as for the Coco Shine they seem to be more pigmented but as I already have 3 Dior Addict Extreme I think I’ll pass. The nail polishes are pretty too !

    • Sunny

      Hey Dominique, yay glad to hear you like the shades you picked up! I was eyeing the nail polishes too, but I already know I want Taboo (still a month before it becomes available here) so I might save up for that one :)

  • Jose

    the packaging is to die for… so cute!

    • Sunny

      It’s sooo whimsical! I think it captures the spirit of the perfume well!

  • Jenni @ lifeandlensofbeauty

    the perfume miniature is so pretty!

    • Sunny

      Yeah it’s definitely going to be proudly displayed somewhere 😉
