Not-so-nude NudeI used to avoid nude lips like a plague. Scared of being too washed out that instead of intending to look polished, I end up looking like I need a polish. After a few hits and misses, I realized the kind of nude that best suits my yellow-toned Asian skin is somewhere between the peachy-nude and pinky-nude balance. No more concealer-like nudes for me. Grege is part of the newly-formulated Rouge Dior lipsticks that were recently launched this year. I have a tube from the old Rouge Dior line my Mom gave me that was loved and abused way before I got into makeup. It was a creamy love that didn’t result in babies (other shade purchases) because I felt it was only so-so. After trying quite a few lipstick brands, I now know (a bit) better.
THE LOWDOWNThe new Rouge Dior lipsticks are first, extremely moisturizing on the lips. Not totally surprised by this since I swear by Dior’s Lip Glow as my ultimate lip balm. I’ve tried everything – Carmex, Chapstick, Blistex, but found that these balms only served to moisturize temporarily. For some reason, my lips love Lip Glow best. Days after, my lips are still moisturized. Anyway, saving that for another review. But suffice it to say that there came a point in time where I ditched all lipsticks and wore Lip Glow all the time instead. The finish is quite lightweight, with a certain slight creaminess that definitely looks glossy but is actually satiny. During application, I feel like I’m putting on my Dior Lip Glow instead of an actual lipstick. It’s probably because I got a nudey color that I can get away with applying it on my puckers sans a mirror. It also has just the right slip that prevents it from becoming a terrible mess to apply. Pigmentation is medium but buildable. One swipe yields a sheer, balmy feel. Two swipes give almost complete coverage. Three swipes makes it fully opaque, but creamier than what I’d like. I can’t speak for the other shades as this review is only for Grege. I’m thinking that probably the other, darker shades have better pay-off and don’t need three swipes for full opacity. The downside is it’s not at all long-lasting for me. By the three hour mark, I can see this sliding off my lips even if I haven’t eaten yet. I have a few fixes to this problem though: 1. blot down after application to reduce creaminess and 2. use a lip pencil beneath. Compared to the other nudes in my stash, it looks most similar to MAC Velvet Teddy only Grege is more beige, and Velvet Teddy leans more peach. It looks like the darkest among all, but it doesn’t translate like this to my lips at all unless I swipe it two-three times.
IN SUMMARYI love Grege. Even if it doesn’t look so nude on me because it leans more on the peach side. When I feel like skipping out on pinkish Lip Glow-ed lips, this is my alternative. The one-swipe photo is how I usually wear it — a quick no-brainer look that acts as a lip treatment as well. I do like the color when heavily applied, but it was layered on almost three times and isn’t quite forgiving on lip lines, albeit still moisturizing. Wish it were more long-lasting but then again for a lip product that doesn’t suck the moisture out of my lips, I’m willing to reapply as needed. I do like this enough that I might check out other shades in the future. Definitely one of the more moisturizing, hydrating formulas I’ve tried.
