Dior Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipstick review and swatches


Hello Lovelies! Needing another lipstick to love? Well, I’ve got good news. One of the lip colors I’ve been rocking lately (apart from Chanel) is the one from Dior, the newest Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipstick ($37). I didn’t quite know what to expect from this lipstick at the beginning and I thought this would probably be just a hyped lipstick from Dior, but boy I was wrong. This lipstick is so surprisingly impressive that it’s almost life-changing, LOL. But yeah you got the picture, right? There is a lot to love about this newness from Dior Beauty.


Dior Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipstick


The Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipstick is intensely pigmented and is incredibly long-wearing with a beautiful red casing that will make you swoon. It isn’t like most Dior lipsticks, even though it sort of resembles the look or shape of the Dior Addict Lacquer Stick (seen HERE) or even the Dior Lip Glow (HERE). This said lipstick has a semi-matte finish which is kinda similar to the Tom Ford Satin Matte Lip Color (reviewed HERE) and this has a slight floral scent that is distinctive of most Dior lipsticks. For me, this has to be one of the most long-wearing lipsticks I’ve ever tried and it lives up to Dior’s description of being ultra-pigmented, comfortable, hydrating and lasting for up to 12 hours. I love how this lipstick feels so light on my lips and it is truly non-drying. It does transfer but the color stays on and there are several shades to choose from, including some different variations of reds, which is awesome because I’m not the type that can pull off the perfect true red since my lips have some pigments. With this newest Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge lipstick, I was able to find several perfect red lip colors that matched with my skin tone and some other shades that look good on me in this gloomy season.

Finding the perfect shade from this latest Dior lipstick line is incredibly difficult, not because there is not one single shade to like, it’s because there are so many beautiful colors to choose from that it’ll put you in a confused state, LOL. I, for one, had to take my time to carefully decide which shades I want, because I knew for sure that I won’t be leaving the store with just one lip color.

I highly recommend this Dior Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipstick and it is currently available at Sephora, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, JCPenneyDillard’s, and Harrods

Dior Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm (New Shades)

Brace yourselves guys! Dior recently released six new shades of their iconic and ever-famous Lip Glow (0.12 oz for $34). Now, there are more choices of pink tones you can choose from. Two are from their new Holographic/Shimmery finish, another two are Mattes, while the other last two have their usual Glowy/Satiny textures. If you’re a long time fan of these beautiful and hydrating balms like I do, I know you’re gonna be jumping in excitement because the new shades are to-die-for. It was only about a year ago when Dior released the Berry shade and the Lip Sugar Scrub (reviewed HERE) which are both so cute and I still carry them in my purse even to this day. In fact, if you’re gonna ask me what is one of the constant lip products in my bag, you can bet there’s always a Dior Lip Glow in there. As even more fact, I always have one or two with me whenever I’m traveling or when the cold temp starts.

I’ve been kinda taking a break from matte lipsticks lately because the air is just so dry from where I am. I need some real moisturization or else I’m gonna turn into a stone and I might crack. Oh no, LOL. Seriously, my skin’s been really dry lately and I need all the lotions, creams, and balms that I can get. So yeah, my lip’s best friend nowadays are these Dior Lip Glow Color Reviver Balms. They’re so much hydrating and they keep your lips well-moisturized for a long period of time. On top of that, the added tints are really gorgeous. They might be balms, and yes they’re on the sheer side, but the tints are complementing to the skin tone and they give a nice flush or glow to the face. Not to mention the fact that these balms are really lightweight.

Before these new six shades were released, I’ve been in love with Coral and Berry. Especially the Berry shade, because it’s the right muted-rose tint for my skin. But, the six shades below are so heart-stoppingly gorgeous, it’s gonna be hard to decide which one I’ll keep in my purse.

HOLO PINK (Light Pink Holographic) – This looks like the coral shade but with a whole lotta shimmers in it. The pink tint didn’t really show on my pigmented lips, but the holographic effect is there. I would say that this is great if you have a very fair to light skin tone, which is basically lighter than mine so that the pinky tint would show. For me, this is the perfect plain shimmery balm on my lips.


HOLO PURPLE (Light Purple Holographic) – My heart skipped bazillion beats when I first swatched this on my lips. Oh my, that perfect Unicorn shade! who wouldn’t want to be a Unicorn? even if it’s not really the ideal shade for the lips, or even for most makeups. But hey, we all love Unicorns shades, don’t we? This shade is really pretty, the light purple tint showed on my lips, and it’s not over-the-top. It’s also packed in shimmers and sugar and spice and everything nice. This color makes me happy and I bet it will for you too. On the other hand, this shade reminds me of Rihanna’s Fenty Match Stix Shimmer in Confetti (not so much the Unicorn shade) and the Starlit Hyper-Glitz in $upanova.

MATTE RASPBERRY (Magenta) – I wouldn’t call this a true magenta shade, but more like true bubblegum raspberry pink in a soft matte texture. The moment I saw this shade I thought of the many ways I could create the perfect ombre lips with this. It’s even great for layering under a liquid matte lipstick. This shade looks fresh and it gives a really nice pop of color on the face. Like a true winterized lip flush. Being matte, this is not really drying and it doesn’t really settle into the lip’s fine lines, instead, this feels cushiony and comfortable and it has a really nice long-wearing pigment to it.


MATTE PINK – A matte version of the original Pink Glow. This is probably my least favorite of all the new Lip Glow shade released this year because I find the color to be too sheer, and it doesn’t have a lot of pigment to it. It also takes a while for the shade to adapt to my skin tone, but once it does, it gives me a nice faint shade of pink on my light-medium skin. It’s also a bit more drying compared to the Matte Raspberry above. But it’s also quite cushiony to the feel. So I think this would look really great if you have a fair to light complexion.

RASPBERRY (Magenta) – This the satiny/glossy version of the matte shade above. This has the same original texture/finish as the Berry, Coral Glow, Lilac and Pink Glow, etc., which are all very comforting and very hydrating at the same time. The pigment of this is not as saturated as the Matte one but they both have the same pink raspberry tint.


ULTRA-PINK –  A juicilicious pink that’s a shade deeper than the original Pink Glow shade and a shade lighter than the Raspberry shade. In other words, something in between Pink and Raspberry. It’s not neon-ish, but it has a nice midtone of pink that is simply stunning, cute, and irresistible. I like this shade of pink because it doesn’t make you look washed out, and it’s also not over the top, and the dewy glow texture makes it even look more gorgeous.

Honestly, I like the Satin and Matte shades both. The matte is ideal if you’re a die-hard wearer of matte lipsticks all year round, or if you can’t wear true mattes in winter and want a hydrating matte-effect balm instead. For me, a lip balm with a matte finish is perfect and I’ve been looking for one, thank goodness I found the Dior Matte Raspberry this winter, it would be so helpful for my dry chapped unrevived lips. LOL. As for the satin one, it’s a no-brainer pretty and super-hydrating balm and I recommend it for everybody. On the other hand, the Holos or the Shimmery finishes are magical and simply mesmerizing. You gotta dry at least one or two of them.

Dior Lip Tattoo Review

Hello! This is going to be an exciting review because we’re gonna be talking about Dior’s latest lip sensation, the Dior Lip Tattoo or the Dior Addict Lip Tint ($30). It’s just been released recently and was sold out in Sephora for a few weeks. They might have restocked on a few colors now, but I’m pretty sure those won’t last. This is definitely a lipstick worth hoarding for. It’s meant to be a no-transfer weightless lip tint that stains the lips like a tattoo for at least 10 hours, according to Dior Beauty. It can be worn alone or can be used as a lip primer. That seems really promising, right?


Dior Lip Tattoo Review


First of all, I love the look of this Dior Lip Tattoo. The packaging is so cute and pretty. So Dior. It feels matte with the Dior brand embossed on one side of it. The brush applicator is small, precise and robust. When you first twist the cap, you could sense a menthol-vanilla-ish scent. Upon application, you’ll notice a slight cooling effect on the lips and the formula is very fluid. It’s definitely not like your most matte liquid lipsticks. This one feels more like a liquid lip stain, to the tune of Giorgio Armani’s Lip Magnet, only slightly cheaper.

It may take a few more swipes before there’s enough coverage on your lips due to this product’s liquid and slightly streaky nature. It kinda settles on the fine lines of your inner lips, but it’s not sticky nor very drying like most matte liquid lipsticks. Though it may eventually slightly dry your lips after hours and hours of wearing it, but you can always top it with your favorite lip gloss or lip balm.

Once the product settles, perhaps around 3-5 minutes, it’ll definitely become transfer-proof, kiss-proof and bullet-proof, LOL. But yeah, it’s true, the Dior Addict Lip Tattoo won’t budge. The effect is more like a lip stain or a very soft matte. It’s very long-lasting as well. I get a good 6-8 hours and beyond of wear on this. Taking it off can be a challenge because it’s super staining that a waterproof makeup remover might struggle to get rid of it. But seriously, who wants to get rid of this lipstick’s beautiful shade?

  • Dior Lip Tattoo in 491 Natural Rosewood – Love the versatility of this shade. The muted dusty rose hue will definitely fit on everyone’s natural lip color and it’s so great for everyday wear. This should definitely be the “my lips but better” kind of shade.


Dior Lip Tattoo natural berry

  • Dior Lip Tattoo in 771 Natural Berry – Gorgeous berry-plum shade. Also a very versatile yet very commanding shade. Don’t be surprised if people will tell you that you look so Maj. ????



Dior Lip Tattoo Review


Final words. These lip products are really well-made. You’ll miss ¼ of your life if you won’t try it. Just kidding. But seriously, I do think that this is Dior’s answer to the coveted Armani Lip Magnets. The nice thing is, with Dior, probably almost all the shades are crazily pigmented. But with the Armani ones, some of the lighter shades are not that pigmented. But I love the Armani a lot because those never dried my lips and they’re slightly thicker in consistency than Dior. Anyhow, whichever you prefer between the two, they won’t disappoint you.
