After dabbling with Boy (reviewed here), I decided I had definitely taken a shine (excuse the lame word-play!) to the formula of the new Chanel Rouge Coco Shines so when I saw they'd already released the entire line here in Italy I was naturally quite excited!
While I'm at it, some background info for your pleasure: Antigone, daughter of King Oedipus of Freudian complex fame, is one of the greatest tragic heroines of Ancient Greece. Her story, first told by Sophocles, was also brought to the stage in Paris in 1922 by Jean Cocteau who enlisted the help of his friends Mademoiselle Coco Chanel, who designed the costumes, and Pablo Picasso, who took care of the stage design as well as the masks and the shields.
Now on to the lipstick! Incidentally, Antigone belongs to the pink-toned family, as does Boy, and is described as "an intense, fresh and amber-tinged pink lipshine". The first part of the description is spot-on, the look is vibrant but still very fresh, but I must say I'm a little surprised by the "amber-tinged" bit, as I can't detect any yellow or gold in the colour, just a lot of raspberry juiciness.
