The packaging is slick, compact and elegant as per usual--it's the kind of lipstick that you'd always want to keep in the purse, and reapply throughout the day without the need of a mirror.

I've completely fallen in love with sheer lipstick formulas lately, which was obviously inspired by the well-loved Nars Dolce Vita lipstick that I've been talking about constantly on this blog. To be honest, I wasn't a fan of 'barely there' sort of finishes just about a few months ago, but it seems like tastes and views change over time. Since I've been using the Dolce Vita more frequently, I've realized that I have another sheer lipstick hiding in the stash- the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Aventure #57,which I picked up at the Duty Free (can't leave it without buying something!) 

I absolutely adore the formula of the Coco Shine range--in terms of texture, it glides on smoothly like a hydrating balm, providing a beautiful natural shiny finish that is light-weight and non-sticky; however, the glossy effect fades over time (which is expected, since it's not a matte lipstick) but the pigment stays put. In terms of pigmentation, it gives a nice sheer wash of color--nothing more, nothing less--which will appear slightly different on everyone depending on the pigmentation of your lips.
Aventure is a sheer warm pink shade with golden shimmers; it is my 'go to' lipstick that I can pretty much pull off with any makeup look, or whenever I'm not completely sure what lipstick to wear.
