I'm not certain if the Rouge Coco Baume was released around the same time or if it was simply integrated into the collection (when you go to the Chanel website, the Rouge Coco Baume shows up as among the products within the collection) but it is one product that I use all the time. It's a staple in my purse and has been my favorite lip balm of the lot that I have purchased over the last few years.
In March, I had a Chanel makeover where artist Daniel did my eye makeup. He did a very creative job with it, utilizing the eyeshadow pens that I requested and adding a couple of his own selections. Paul, the artist who worked on the rest of my makeup, finished everything off with the Rouge Coco Stylo in 214 Message, the very shade that Keira Knightly was wearing in the promotional pictures. I have to admit that I was glad to have bought it. It is not long-wearing but it is a good color to have through the fall.

Below are the Chanel Stylo Eyeshadows that I bought that day. I have Beige Doré and Vert Grisé. I was originally going to get Brun Chatain since I am not fond of green for my eyes but Daniel convinced me that Vert Grisé was more grey than green when on and it would prove very versatile. No regrets so far. After all, I do have a lot of browns in my collection already.

Of everything that I will be showing in this post, I think that the most beautiful and useful of the products is actually the Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow in Vert Grisé. It's multi-dimensional, with iridescent flecks, but also a surprisingly multi-purpose neutral. I love using it on the bottom lash line to cap off a lot of looks that otherwise seem uninteresting.
