Chanel has taken lip balm to a whole new level with its latest Rouge Coco Baume launch. The unique creation, which offers both colour and care, is a smart formula that allows for custom coverage. Whether you’re looking for a sheer wash of colour or lipstick-like intensity, this delivers, all with the caring benefits of a balm.
Thanks to its blend of antioxidant-rich olive oleoactive, moisturising shea butter, plant waxes and the signature Rouge Coco hydra boost complex, the nourishing lip creation glides smoothly onto the lips to keep them moisturised all day long and plumper, smoother and better-looking in the long run.
The formula goes on with a naturally luminous finish and transforms to a semi-matte finish as it wears. To use, simply apply the lip balm straight from the bullet or use your fingertips to blend for a more diffused look. One swipe will offer a subtle hint of colour while three layers will drench lips in coverage that is nearly as intense as a lipstick.
You can also wear it alone or in combination with other shades to either illuminate or intensify your makeup look.
Excited to add this essential to your makeup arsenal? The Rouge Coco Baume is available in six shades, from fresh pink to deep burgundy, each inspired by the colour of summer flowers that grow around La Pausa, the legendary villa perched on the ridge of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin.
And if you just want to enjoy the good-for-lip ingredients, there’s a transparent, pearlescent white 912 Dreamy White that intensifies the natural radiance of the pout.
Presented in a pared-down, all-white case with gold details, the Rouge Coco Baume is priced at SGD53 and now available at Chanel’s Fragrance & Beauty boutiques and counters, and online via its e-shop.
