First time I've bought Dior lipstick and most expensive lipstick I've ever bought ... but honestly it is the best lipstick I've ever used. It makes my lips feel moisturised like I'm wearing lip balm, it has incredible staying power, and my lips look plump and juicy! Great shine but not like a gloss which is sticky, it is more like varnish. I am not a big fan of the pen shape - the click sounds like it is broken - but that's a real personal choice. I bought raspberry which is pinkier than I expected but still very pretty.
I bought this in #640 Soft pink serum. At first I was so excited to get this based on the raves on here. At $40 CAD a tube, this is probably the most expensive tube of lipstick I own considering it's only 2 grams.
- non sticky, very smooth texture
- has SPF 20
- plumps up lines
- The ridiculous price!
- Not as much shine as I expected
- The packaging. The testers have a colored top, whereas the actual product is all one color. I can see it being difficult to tell which lipstick is which if you have multiple.
I would not repurchase this again, because I enjoy the new Lancome L'Absolu Creme de Brillance liquid lip color better. They don't have as many shades, but at $33 CAD for 6 grams, it is more cost friendly. To me, they both do the same thing. They have the same texture, and they both plump up the lines on my lips. The only difference is that Lancome does not offer an SPF.
Hope this helped! :)
I LOVE this product! Shade 740 has fast become my 'do-all' lipstick... It's great (smudged down) with dark smoky eyes but is equally perfect for the office. And, as a bonus - on days when my make-up doesn't look 'right' - I put this on and I'm good to go.
Re-applying it throughout the day leaves a delicious stain on my lips and an added bonus is that it hydrates too.
It's on the pricey side but I love the packaging (subtle) and when you find your perfect colour, nothing's too much to pay.
I can't recommend it highly enough and will be buying it in bulk as I'd hate for it to be discontinued.
I have extremely dry, flaky lips that peel within an hour upon application of any lipsticks even after layering on lip treatments. After a painful purchase of the Guerlain Rouge G at 73 Singapore Dollars, I just couldn't bear to try their other colours (even though it was the only lipstick that gave superb moisture to my lips without the above mentioned symptoms).
I read the reviews here about Dior's Serum De Rouge. I tried the Serum on (went for a quick shop around for an hour) and was surprise that it is MORE moisturizing than Guerlain's and my lips did NOT peel! Hurray!!! I have been using 660 (Garnet), a bright pinkish-red on my lips (covers my uneven lip tone). Following it, I have bought 640 (Soft Pink - colour hardly shows up on my lips) and 740 (Rosewood - my lips but better colour). Compared to Guerlain's Rouge G, the serums at 49 Singapore Dollars are so much MORE affordable for me. Packaging wise, I do prefer the twist up though I would think the serum has a softer texture and wouldn't be able to hold its shape =)
I am a Dior Colour 20 (Light Beige). My lips are medium pink, slightly darker on my upper lip. Wished I knew how to upload photos to show all MUAs out there how wonderful the Serum De Rouge are!!! My HG which I will purchase again and again!!!
I have this in 710 (it's a brownish color). the color itself does not work for me but nevertheless I use it almost everyday just because I LOVE THIS LIPSTICK. it's incredibly creamy and smooth, I feel like I'm wearing a lip balm when I have this on. it's just a pure pleasure to use. I will re-purchase it but in another color
Oh I wanted to love this! It is the biggest waste of money I have shelled out in a long time!! I bought Garnet which is really lovely but it does not last at all. I am very disapponted. The only fantastic thing about it is the gorgeous packaging. It comes in a GORGEOUS long "dispenser" tube that you click but it is not a liquid, it is a "solid" "stick" but thinner than the normal lipstick in the tube. Bummed out indeed!!!!
Bought this at Nordstrom in Coral #730 and looks so lovely! It's a perfect peachy pink color. Has a nice smell and keeps my lips moisturized and with SPF, it's perfect to walk out in the sun. It's pricey at $32, but a little goes a long way. All you need to do is twist the bottom, which gives you more lipstick to apply. The serum does treat my lips, which can get dry in the winter time. I'd repurchase again, and if I can find it a Duty Free shop, even better!
Instant HG! I got 660 Garnet, a medium berry pink color. Apply sheer it's the perfect MLBB; apply heavily it's bright eye-catching berry red. The texture is simply to die for, very buttery and moisturizing. Lasts for hours too.
With this I may actually use up a lipstick! lol
Crimson #840: A slightly pink red but with great berry undertones. Can be worn sheer or heavy. Megan Fox wore Crimson #840 on the 2009 October cover of Cosmo. A truly delightful lipstick!
I bought #760 and like the shade. The texture is good and doesn't dry up my lips. The only thing that the retraction feature broke down after i used it less than 10 times. Yes, I cannot retract the lipstick so I have to only turn it up a little each time so that I can put the cover back on without ruining the liptstick. This really got to me as it is expensive (SGD43) and I expected packaging to be of better quality. At this price, I don't think I will buy again.
