My Lips are Sill-edIt’s no secret — Christian Dior’s Rouge Dior takes the cake as one of my favorite lipstick formulas at the moment. This is mainly attributed to its moisturizing feature that my extremely peely lips can attest to. I am a fan of matte and satin finishes in general, but sadly my lips are not. Most formulas I’ve tried dry them up in minutes or in hours and no matter how much prepping is done. So when I find a formula that doesn’t make them crack or peel, I always feel like offering some sort of sacrificial lamb to the Makeup Gods.
ONCE UPON A TUBEI’ve poured my heart out for my favorite nude that I found in Dior Grege one too many times here on the blog so I’ll save you from yet another one. Anyway, because of my not-so-obvious obsession with that lipstick, I was itching to pick up another tube from the line. The Rouge Dior range has a whopping 32 shades in total. There may have been a one-hour swatchfest that ensued in a Dior counter somewhere (with a very patient SA that helped out in the process). With 31 shades to choose from, I mindlessly thought it would be an easy feat. I knew I wanted something I could wear everyday that’s not overly striking. Which means the flagship shades from the pink, orange and red color families — Darling, Trafalgar and 999 respectively — were out of the picture. It was especially tough letting go of that beautiful true red (999) and repeatedly seeing Natalie Portman wearing it didn’t help speed up the decision-making process either. After a hand full of swatches (and truly one of the nicest and most patient SAs ever still smiling after almost an hour), it was down to Rose Bonheur and Sillage. Rose Bonheur is a peachy-pink while Sillage is a classic coral. The deciding factor? Do I buy another peachy pink I can wear everyday or completely change the way I do everyday lipstick and go for coral this time?
Spillage on SillageRouge Dior Sillage is a rosy, somewhat-red coral on me. It’s not super pigmented (as compared to the flagship shades that are BAM pigment in one go) — same with Grege — which I found has medium pay-off with one swipe and almost-completely opaque in two. Sillage, though, I could get away with by using one swipe (like above). The texture is that of a rich balm but creamy and not at all sticky. It glides on the lips like butter so it feels just like applying on lip balm. I would imagine that for the darker shades this would be a little tricky because with the slick and buttery texture, it’d be hard to be precise around the lip line. Also, it feels very lightweight on the lips despite the creamy slash balmy texture. For a cream lipstick, this lasts a good 4 hours on me (without eating!) and thereafter leaves a gentle stain. I’m okay with it not being long-lasting as I’m after the moisturizing feature, anyway. Sillage, however, has a tendency to accentuate flakies which I didn’t experience with Grege. This is easily remedied by proper prepping a.k.a exfoliating before wear. Overall, I think the Rouge Dior range is a win for those who have troublesome lips and are on the market for a lipstick that’s comfortable to wear because your puckers have had enough of those drying formulas — no matter how beautiful their satin or matte finishes are. If you’re adamant on just wearing matte, I suggest giving their Diorific range a swatch because MATTE!— though not as moisturizing as Rouge Dior.
