Chanel Rouge Coco Shine 59 Elise

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Elise (no. 59) is a cheerful berry color, a sheer raspberry with medium level shimmer. It's a touch lighter and more pink than Unique and Bonheur, but still adds quite a bit of color to my lips. It's even more visible once the shiny finish fades, so I can pair Elise with just about any medium plum gloss or even a clear one.

For some reason I find Elise to be a bit more dry than the other Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks I have. It means I have to make sure my lips are nicely prepped before applying it in the morning and use a hydrating gloss on top later. I'm not sure what causes the difference between this one and other shades (I hear Elise is not the only one), but my guess is its the pigmented base as the shine looks and feels the same in all the RCSs.

The rouge Coco Shine series is a great choice for summer. It's good for a quick application on the go  and doesn't require a liner. The dark colors have a long-lasting pigmented base that stays on for several hours and survive a drink or a snack. I know it's not the case with all shades and the light ones did nothing for me, but I only picked plum, berry and red colors and have been wearing them constantly.
