Chanel Rouge Coco Baroque

Figured I should blog about this before it's gone. If memory serves me, Rouge Coco Baroque was introduced as an online exclusive to celebrate the release of the (then) new Rouge Coco formula. This dark brick red is such a good winter shade, it would be a waste to let the season go by without pulling it out for a spin.

As Rouge Cocos go (awesomeness does vary from shade to shade), Baroque is one of the good ones. It stays put and fades evenly and I'm trying to be objective about this review but that color just absolutely slays me. Apparently I die for brick reds. 

Rouge Coco Baroque retails for $32.50 (price hike? sigh) at


  1. That looks beautiful you :) Such a great fall colour :)

  2. Pretty color. I like that it contains a bit rustiness and not just bright, in-your-face red.

    Your bare face is also nice with this color. (Such beautiful skin!)

  3. Gorgeous! A perfect shade for you!

  4. Oh, dear. I have a weakness for brick reds too, even if I have to stay away from the ones that are too brown. Have you tried NARS 413 Bleecker Pure Matte Lipstick? I absolutely love the shade.

  5. Phoebe- Thank you :) Yes! And one can hope we only have three months of cold weather to go...

    GB- RUST! That's the word. Thank you for the kind words :)

    Tracy- Aw love <3

    Jamilla- Thank you! though I must admit I haven't been sporting red for a long time eep. Can't wait till we meeeeet

    Leigh- I haven't tried that particular shade, but I'm not a fan of the Pure Matte (or any matte...) formula. They dry me out no matter how moisturizing they tell me it is :(

  6. That is a gorgeous shade!!perfect for winter..I want that!!!

  7. Oh my...yes, that is one fabulous shade!! I have to agree that a brick red lippie gets me every time - it just seems to work for so many skin tones! Looks great on you! :)

  8. That is absolutely beautiful on you.

  9. Xiao, I get that. I like to wear a matte lipstick to work because it's more subtle. Even with a pop of color, you still look conservative, which is like cheating really. :)

  10. Hi Xiao! I've been reading your blog for a long time now, but this is the first time I'm commenting. Lurker, mucho. You slay my wallet every time you feature dark lippies!! Anyways, I really really love your blog <3
