New Nude Lipstick Love: Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo Lettre

Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo Lipstick in Lettre 216

Finding your ultimate nude lipstick can be a little tricky, but I have finally found mine in the new Rouge Coco Stylo lipstick series by Chanel. Let’s have a look at the beauty that is Lettre: the only color I need for spring.  I was very happy to finally find the Rouge Coco Stylo series at my local Chanel counter. It launched a little late here, so I was thrilled to finally swatch all the new shades and then spend an aganozing period choosing between several amazing colors. I eventually settled on Lettre (216), because it just looked so pretty and seemed like I would use most out of all options.

It might not come as much of a surprise, but I absolutely love this lipstick. It is Chanel after all. The color is lovely for me: the perfect nude my lips but better shade. I photographed it in shade and full sun to give you a better impression of the color in different lighting conditions.

This is a rather different formula: it combines the coverage of a glossy lipstick with the caring qualities of a balm. It feels amazing on the lips, but those qualities come with inherent disadvantages. It doesn’t last as long as a normal lipstick and the stick is very soft. You really have to be careful not to damage the bullet. Thankfully, the twisting mechanism is very sensitive and you can also bring twist it back down again to protect it.

The new style packaging – imitating a pen or stylo – is actually very convenient for a nice application. It also hands Chanel a convenient theme for the names which all resolve around writing. Perhaps not as cute as naming them after Coco’s Chanel friends and lovers as in the original Rouge Coco series, but lovely nonetheless.

I had some gift cards left from my birthday, so I consider Lettre a belated birthday gift to myself from my besties (thanks ladies!). Chanel doesn’t come cheap, however, but it is definitely worth it for me. This isn’t just the prettiest pink I own, but the little chanel logo and fancy black packaging adds a feeling of luxury.

I might have to check out the remainder of these Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo series, I remember swatching an amazing berry shade that might have to some home with me next.

Het vinden van de ultieme nude lipstick kan een beetje lastig zijn, maar ik heb eindelijk de mijne gevonden in de nieuwe Rouge Coco Stylo lipstick serie van Chanel. Laten we eens goed kijken naar de mooie Lettre: de enige kleur die ik deze lente nodig heb.

Ik was heel blij om eindelijk de Rouge Coco Stylo serie bij mijn Chanel display te zien. Hij kwam hier wat later uit, dus ik kon eindelijk alle nieuwe kleuren swatchen en daarna was ik een tijdje bezig met kiezen tussen alle mooie tinten. Ik koos uiteindelijk voor Lettre (216), gewoon omdat het een mooie kleur was en ik het idee had dat ik deze het meeste zou dragen.

Het is niet echt een verrassing, maar ik ben dol op deze lipstick. Het is tenslotte Chanel. De kleur is gewoon geweldig: de perfecte mijn lippen maar beter kleur. Ik heb het effect gefotografeerd in de schaduw en zon om je een beter idee te geven van de kleur in verschillende soorten licht.

Dit is een hele aparte formule: een combinatie van de dekking van een glimmende lippenstift met de verzorgende kwaliteiten van een lippenbalsem. Het voelt heel fijn aan, maar deze eigenschappen hebben wel nadelen. Het blijft niet zolang zitten als een ‘echte’ lippenstift en de stick is wel erg zacht. Je moet erg voorzichtig zijn om deze niet te beschadigen. Gelukkig is het draaimechanisme wel heel gevoelig en kun je ook terugdraaien om hem te beschermen.

De nieuwe verpakking – die lijkt op een pen oftewel stylo – is eigenlijk best een handige verpakking. Het geeft Chanel ook gelijk een handig thema voor de namen die allemaal om schrijven draaien. Niet zo schattig als de vernoeming naar Coco Chanel’s vrienden en geliefden in de originele Rouge Coco serie, maar toch leuk.

Ik had nog een aantal kadobonnen liggen van mijn verjaardag, dus Lettre was eigenlijk een verlaat kadootje van mijn vriendinnen (bedankt ladies!). Chanel is nooit goedkoop, maar ik vind deze zeker de moeite waard. Het is niet alleen de mooiste roze lipstick in mijn bezit, maar het Chanel logo en de chique zwarte verpakking voegen ook echt luxe toe.

Ik ga zeker de rest van deze Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo serie nog eens goed bekijken, ik herinner me een geweldige bessentint die me ook geweldig zou staan.

    I love the lipstick effect in full light and less light and it absolutely as a real new shade just as two in one shade. Awesome! Chanel always rocks!

    Oh man, my heart skipped a beat when I read: combines the coverage of a glossy lipstick with the caring qualities of a balm.
    I think 2016 is the year that I get a Chanel lipstick, finally!
    It's nice to get gift cards, isn't it? You get to choose what you want.

      Oh I know! I had really expected it to be less covering, but the color pay off is wonderful. You really should have a look at these, there are so many lovely shades.
