The texture of these lippies is amazing... very similar to Chanel's Rouge Allure, but better! It is lightweight on the lips - almost a gel-like texture - very smooth, and very pigmented. It's also quite long-lasting without drying out the lips (which makes it better than Rouge Allure, which has a tendency to dry out my lips.)
This color is a mid-toned mauvey pink with a pearl finish. It's a very nice pink, good for the office and every day. Compared to my MAC Sharp Beige lippie, it is a bit cooler. It goes well with my MAC Beurre lip liner. To warm up the color a little bit and to add more shine and even more dimension, I will sometimes apply Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Hologram Coral (#333) on top.
This lippie is not as strongly scented as some of the older Dior lippies, and I love the case (rectangular navy blue plastic that is textured and has shiny chrome trim).
If I ever use this up, I will repurchase.
For reference, I am MAC NC25/Stila 30 Watts/LM Nude with dark hair and eyes. continued >>
