Summer 2017 is here! This means new colors from Chanel for the warm, summer season. Love! Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine lipstick collection is one of my favorite lipsticks. It is sheer, which makes it easy to wear with casual attire, or anytime you don’t want a lot of color on your lips. I always keep one in my handbag in case I get tired of wearing a cream lipstick during the day, and want to switch things up a bit.
For the summer 2017 season, Chanel has introduced the Cruise 2017 collection; not to be confused with resort. This is the first summer 2017 beauty collection. Although the nail polish colors for summer are bright and sunny, with one color exception offering a darker, more vampy look, the lipsticks are surprising subdued.
Chanel has two colors for summer from their Rouge Coco Shine lipstick collection. Golden Sun, which is a sheer orange, and Golden Sand, which is a sheer, dark tan. Both colors are on the cool side of the color spectrum, and offer a natural lip for the warm weather season. No bold lips from Chanel for summer 2017!
Here are examples of what Chanel Golden Sun and Chanel Golden Sand look like on.
Chanel Golden Sand lipstick for summer 2017
Chanel Golden Sand lipstick is the perfect go-to color for everyday. It is a neutral hue which plays with any color palette. It is ideal for the office when makeup should not be obvious, and it is great for casual ensembles. This is the color I keep in my purse when I want to change things up during the day, or I get tired of wearing a heavier, cream lipstick.
If you have not worn Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine lipstick before, it is extremely lightweight and easy to wear. It never smears, and it wears off evenly during the course of the day. Another thing I love about Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick, is the fact that it is moisturizing. This is why I have been purchasing lipstick colors from this collection since I was in undergrad!
Chanel Golden Sun lipstick for summer 2017
Don’t let that orange hue fool you! This is a very sheer orange color. Chanel Golden Sun lipstick is a cheery hue which, in my opinion, looks amazing with Chanel’s summer nail colors. Since it is sheer, and light, Golden Sun is easy to wear daily; much like Golden Sand. Unlike Golden Sand, Golden Sun is more on the trendy lip color side and is a great color to wear with summer’s pink, orange, and yellow hues. Love!
This is the color I reach for when I want a sheer lip that is a little more playful then on days when I reach for Golden Sand. Do you need both colors in Chanel’s summer lipstick collection? Maybe not, but it sure is fun to own both! If you are going to choose one, go for Golden Sand for a more conservative look, or Golden Sun for a more playful vibe.
