rouge coco gloss

The nonsticky, coconut oil–infused lip gloss that hydrates and plumps your pout.

Written By JAYME CYK


Lip gloss tends to get a bad rep because of its uncomfortable stickiness, but Chanel miraculously nailed its gel-like formula, which visibly smooths and plumps your pout. The high-shine Rouge Coco Gloss is infused with coconut oil, peptides, and vitamin E, so it slicks on, leaving your lips hydrated throughout the day. And thanks to the oversize doe foot applicator, lips are saturated in one swipe. Think of it as the perfect marriage between a gloss and a balm.


“The color range is diverse and there is something for everyone, whether you layer or wear it alone.”—Kate Lee, Chanel makeup artist

“The colors and texture are incredibly smooth and hydrating. Also, the applicator is easy to use and controls the product nicely.”—Denika Bedrossian, makeup artist

“This gloss is so light and lovely on the lips. I’ve been off glosses lately, but this one gives that perfect sheer color without the overly sticky feeling that most glosses have.”—Fiona Stiles, makeup artist

“The formula is super wearable without a heavy, sticky feeling, and the finish is luminous without being too sparkly.”—Matthew VanLeeuwen, makeup artist
