Rouge Coco: Mademoiselle's Favorite Lipstick

Gabrielle Chanel was fascinated by lipstick to such an extent that she created a creamy stick of lip colour in 1954 that she inserted in a rectangular tube, the exact replica of the No 5 spray bottle.  She even reserved the famous leather compartment inside each 2.55 quilted handbag.  This historic lipstick has continuously adapted to new technological innovations.

Coco Rouge

The Anatomy of Chic ~ A Timeless Classic
CHANEL brings the iconic packaging of the historic lipstick by Coco Chanel into the Rouge Coco era.  A black case with a gold ring in smooth, luxurious metal with a fresh feel that is instantly recognizable each time that you plunge your hand into your handbag to find your lipstick.

Comfort and Sensory Pleasure
Its creamy texture dresses the lips in luxury for a satiny, luminous result. 

Hydration:  The HYDRATENDER complex guarantees 8-hour hydration
Colour:  Thanks to extremely fine pigments, the radiance of the colour preserves lip comfort
Fragrance:  A bouquet of fresh roses enhanced with a fruity raspberry accord over a powdery, iridescent base with a hint of vanilla
