If you are a beige lipstick lover like I am, you should definitely try Chanel Rouge Coco Flash Lipstick 52 Casual. It may look too sheer, not pigmented enough to pay $38 plus tax. Let’s see what are the pros and cons.
Chanel Rouge Coco Flash 52 Casual is a light yellow-beige shade without shimmer. It looks and feels like butter! Highly moisturizing texture provides sufficient care for my lips, so I don’t have to apply a lip balm underneath the lipstick. Actually, the color shows off better if applied on bare lips.
Compared with Dior Addict lipstick 423 Minimal, Chanel Rouge Coco Flash 52 Casual glides better on my lips and its more dry lips forgiving. Dior Addict lipsticks are not supposed to be highly moisturizing, so they usually require a lip balm.
As I mentioned in the previous article about Dior Addict lipstick 423 Minimal, I was fascinated by its color! Even if it looks like very light yellow-beige in the tube, on my lips it transforms into sophisticated cool-toned beige. Chanel Rouge Coco Flash 52 Casual looks darker and more beige than Dior Addict lipstick 423 Minimal.
Both Dior Addict lipstick 423 Minimal and Chanel Rouge Coco Flash 52 Casual are not long-lasting shades. The re-application is required if you want to keep the effect for many hours. But those shades fade out softly without leaving unpleasant lines on my lips as some brighter shades do.
On my lips, Chanel Rouge Coco Flash 52 Casual transforms into light yellow-beige at first. It’s color-chameleon! If I wear pink, it transforms into a sophisticated baby-pink. Definitely a very young color!
Dior Addict lipstick 423 Minimal is much cooler beige. It looks very edgy!
Which lipstick I like better: Chanel Rouge Coco Flash 52 Casual or Dior Addict lipstick 423 Minimal? It’s hard to tell. Those colors look very different on my lips. Dior Addict lipstick 423 Minimal is cool-toned arrogant beige. And Chanel Rouge Coco Flash 52 Casual is very innocent and young! Which one do you prefer? Let me know in the comments.
