Chanel Rouge Coco Shines at The Bay

Rouge Coco Shines from Left to Right: Monte Carlo, Rebelle, Bel-Ami, Antigone, Bonheur, Boy, Royalieu, Fetiche.

While enjoying my vacation in Toronto this past weekend, I popped into the Bay to see what they had and came out with a new Chanel Rouge Coco Shine!

The Bay had these highly anticipated RCS's available for purchase, there are 24 total in the collection but I swatched only a few, including Royalieu and Antigone which are believed to be exclusive to Canada and Fetische, the color Oscar nominated Hailee Steinfeld of True Grit wore to the 2011 Oscars.
From the photo, here are the color descriptions:
Monte Carlo- Pink Red
Rebelle- Orange Red
Bel-Ami- Plum Brown
Antigone- Red Berry
Bonheur- Berry Plum
Boy- Natural Rose
Royalieu- Sheer pink
Fetische- Rose

I swatched a few of the colors on my hands and if you have any doubt about the pigment power of the RCS, have no fear! If you have the same skintone as me, and are falling hard for a very moisturizing lipgloss with hints of shimmer, you will love these.
After deliborating between Bel-Ami and Bonheur, I decided on Bonheur. The SA let me know that it was the last one! The retail price in canadian dollars for the Rouge Coco Shines are $39! Making this the most expensive lip product I have bought! But in the US these will go for $32 and will release in April.
I wanted to share this as soon as my postings will be sporatic for the next few days as I'm in San Diego and LA. I will re-post with individual colors as I know these are quite small and I have hand swatches of some of these colors too!
