Rouge Dior Lipstick: Diorlywood Pink 565
Last year, I got the chance to work on the Dior Makeup counter in House of Fraser for the day with one of the international Makeup Artists. I didn't get paid for it, but I did however get to choose a lipstick as payment for the day which I was more than happy with. I wore this lipstick once then put it away and forgot about it until the other week. I've only recently started wearing bright colours and used to stick to nudes, so when I came across this in my collection I started wearing it again.
The Dior Rouge Dior range is inspired by the colours of the Dior Haute Couture gowns and the midnight blue casing has the canework motif signature to the brand engraved into it.
The shade I have is called Diorlywood Pink 565, however I've been doing some research and it's now called Trafalgar Pink 565. It's a lovely Fuchsia colour with purple tones, it's quite similar to my Lollipop Lip Butter, but with less shine. The lipstick is coated with pigments which help 'boost the radiance and depth of colour.' This lipstick has really good pigment and is very moisturising. It lasts up to about 3 hours before I have to top it up and it never dries out my lips. The only thing I'd say I didn't like about this product is the fragrance, I cant really describe what it smells like but it's quite strong.
The Rouge Dior lipsticks cost £25 and can be purchased here. It's pretty expensive for a lipstick and I'm not sure I'd pay that myself.
Have you ever tried any of the Dior lipsticks?
