Chanel Deauville Rouge Coco Shine 67

Another week, another Chanel Rouge Coco Shine to love.

This one is #67, Deaville, which is a decidedly brown-based pink. It's not as summery as some other colors in the range like Fetiche or Monte Carlo, but very wearable all year around. Deauville is a very neutral color and lets just enough of my natural lip color through, like all the other Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks I have, so the result is a twist on the "my lips but better idea", only with a shine and elegant color.

It's a good question why Chanel's marketing focused on the most fleeting aspect of these lipsticks, the glossy finish that fades within an hour. After all, their main strength is leaving a long-lasting but subtle stain that doesn't need any touch ups for the better part of the day other than topping it with a gloss. I love Deauville paired with YSL Glden Gloss in Praline, Burberry Sepia or Hourglass Eden. The low-key color is great as it is, and especially on days I go all out on the eye front (aka green eye shadow days). I'm having a hard time thinking about a complexion that would clash with this color, but I'm sure it's out there. The rest of us can consider it a favorite.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks ($32) are available at the counters and on

  1. I'm not sure if your Deauville is the same as mine but I'm quite disappointed by the lack of shine with this particular shade. I'm beginning to think that I really don't care for my Rouge Coco Shines :-( I don't seem to get this long lasting stain from it that others experience. I think it's time to do a comprehensive review of the 6 shades I have rather than just the initial swatches I have of my first four shades.

  2. I have been loving all of you RCS reviews Gaia. Have you tried Bonheur yet? I think that one is my favorite. Rebelle is also really lovely, one of those "wearable" reds we love :-)


  3. This is the one I originally sent my husband out for, changing my mind at the very last minute to Bonheur. I think it's a colour I could get quite a lot of wear from.

  4. PP, I'm sorry you're not enjoying your RCS so much. It's always interesting to see how these formulas work differently on all of us.

  5. Trish, Bonheur is the next (and last) of the RCS I got and I love it. Not sure why I didn't get Rebelle, I'll have to check it out soon. We can't have too many easygoing reds.

  6. J., these colors are so easy to wear and love. Bonheur lives half the time in my purse and I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy Deauville.
