While orange might not everyone’s jam, there is definitely a pink or two in everyone’s life that is meant-to-be. I have found a couple of truly stunning pinks in the new Chanel Rouge Coco line-up, and I can’t wait to properly introduce *Olga, *Edith, *Roussy, and *Légende to you!
Chanel Olga Rouge Coco (422) is a pale peachy pink with shimmer and a bit of a frosty sheen. The shimmer is visible on the lips, but it does not feel gritty. Out of all the new Rouge Cocos I’ve seen, Olga just might be the sheerest one. It offers a veil of color, so your natural lip color has a huge impact on how it looks. Truth be told, I don’t dislike how it looks on me, but unfortunately it is too sheer to have any real staying power. I’d give it an hour or two before it’s gone. Another issue with Olga is if you build it up, it starts to gather in lip lines. In other words, unless you want sheer and you are OK with reapplying often, I’d steer you in the direction of other pretty pinks in the new Rouge Coco line-up!

Here is how Olga looks on me:
I’d say Olga looks warmer in real life. Diane Kruger wore this shade to the Elle UK Style Awards 2015 several days ago. If you are interested, Google for a photo. It is definitely looks better on her!
A lot of you mentioned how much you like Edith when I showed you the quick swatches, and I can see why! In fact, Edith and Roussy are definitely my new lipstick crushes.
Chanel Edith Rouge Coco (424) is a slightly muted medium plummy pink. As opposed to most Rouge Cocos we have seen so far, Edith has more of a satin finish. The texture is also more creamy and less gel-ish. Still, it glides on easily with pretty much opaque coverage. The formula is hydrating, and it lasts between 4-5 hours on me.

I like how it is toned-down enough to be worn on a daily basis, but it is not a boring playing it safe type of color!
Roussy is another favorite of mine. I mean, hello coral pink!
Chanel Roussy Rouge Coco (426) is a medium coral pink. Like Edith, the finish is less glossy and translucent than the other Rouge Cocos we have seen so far. Instead, it has more of a creamy, satin finish, as well as better color payoff. Roussy is comfortable and hydrating to wear. It lasts closer to 5 hours on my lips.

On my skin tone, Roussy is just an effortless shade to wear. Since there is a lot of pink in this shade, I’d like to believe it’d be easy to pull off for many!
Last but not least, we have Légende! A lipstick of the same name existed in the previous line-up, but the two shades are very different.
Chanel Légende Rouge Coco (428) is a frosty rose with shimmer. It delivers beautiful color payoff, wears for 4-5 hours, and is slightly hydrating.

I have discovered that there are definitely differences in terms of finish, color payoff, and wear time in the new Rouge Coco line-up (as it is with every line). My personal picks here would be Edith and Roussy. They are more opaque than translucent, they wear well, and both shades are just such darlings!
