Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Idylle is a limited edition color released as part of the newly launched summer 2013 makeup collection - L'Ete Papillon de Chanel. This collection draws inspiration from the vibrant colors of butterflies and features some bright, summer colors. Idylle, though, is an exception. This is a soft peach color, and being a Rouge Coco Shine, Idylle is also very sheer. It looks a pale peach when swatched quite heavily on my hands and translates to almost colorless on my lips, leaving just a barely there milky wash of color. As I was taking photos for this post, I noticed some slight shimmmer in the lipstick, but it's hardly anything and definitely nonexistent on swatches. Scroll on for photos, swatches, and more.

As I mentioned earlier with Rouge Coco Shine in Idylle, there really is nothing to show in terms of color payoff on my lips. I have very pigmented lips, and this is definitely not the sort of color I should be picking. On someone with lighter/clearer lips, I guess Idylle would be a lovely soft hint of peach and a perfect pick for a no-makeup look. The formula is beyond fabulous in terms of hydration and is far superior to so many lip balms I have tried. In fact, that's just how I will be using Idylle - as a very posh lip balm! For me, this is a color I shouldn't have bothered buying.
