The Chanel spring collection brings us two new shades of Rouge Coco Shine, Candeur and Flirt. Though I was tempted by the very sheer pink, Candeur, I felt it might be too similar to Royallieu, so decided to give it a miss (for now).
Though Flirt (£23) looks quite bright, the Coco Shines always apply more sheer than they look in the tube.
On me, Flirt is a pink coral. Its a very pretty shade for spring which brightens the face without being overbearing.
I initially thought that it might be similar to Misia #45, however as you can see in the swatch below, Flirt is a lot more pink in tone.

Coco shines have a a high shine/gloss finish. The texture is smooth, with a lightweight feel. They are reasonably hydrating but have poor lasting power (my one negative for them, though you'll note I can't seem to stop buying them).
I bought this from John Lewis
