Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Boy
Carli Whitwell, beauty & health editor "When I was a teenager, I loved this particular tawny nude shade of Chanel lipstick. (I forget the name now.) It sold out in my local malls and this was before online shopping existed, so the next time my grandparents went to California, I made them bring me home several tubes. Now, my go-to nude is still Chanel – Rouge Coco Shine in Boy." Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy ($42), at thebay.com.
