Happy New Year everyone! It’s finally 2020! I can’t wait to see what this year will bring for us. I hope this year will be a year filled with happiness, excitement, and of course, beauty stuff, lol. So, to start the year, let’s talk about two of the latest Dior lip releases this Fall/Winter – The Rouge Dior Ultra Care line of Lipsticks and Liquid Lipsticks.
I almost overlooked this release thinking it would be quite the same as the Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipsticks last year (reviewed HERE in the blog). But actually, it’s not, this latest line of Dior lipsticks may have the same packaging style and color as last year’s Dior Ultra Rouge, but these lipsticks have a different texture, and the liquid ones are totally different as well.
Some of the shades/numbers in this release may be available in both lipstick and liquid lipstick form, and they may slightly vary in color depth and tone. The shades of the Rouge Dior Ultra Care Lipsticks are all matte in finish, while the Rouge Dior Ultra Liquid ones are in matte and satin.
Rouge Dior Ultra Care Lipstick (all matte, 38 USD)
This type of lipstick has camelina oil and jojoba. It feels really light and super comfortable. It does have the signature Dior floral lipstick scent, and the packaging is a beautiful standout red. The center/core of the lipstick contains a white CD, like a cute embossing that contains the camelina oil and jojoba for hydration. It adds a bit of pearlescent sheen to the lipstick’s main shade. Additionally, the texture of this lipstick is comfortable matte and it can last for hours without reapplication. The shades are also mostly very beautiful and very pigmented.
480 Fleur Bleue (dusty pink matte) – on my skin, it looks like a light coral pink
750 Blossom (intense pink matte) – looks more like a medium pink on me
Rouge Dior Ultra Care Liquid Lipstick (matte and satin, 38 USD)
This liquid lipstick is infused with camelina and almond oil, and also with shea butter. It feels so light and it also has the signature Dior floral scent, but a bit more subtle than the lipstick version above. It comes in both matte and satin finish, and both are very comfortable on the lips. The pigment is amazing and also very long-lasting. The matte finish tends to have a soft-focus diffuse effect on the lips, while the satin one adds more depth and dimension. Personally, I love both finishes because the satin shades don’t look too shimmery. The only thing I don’t like about this lipstick is the weak brush applicator. Though the packaging is cute and pretty in red, and the brush’s shape is quite precise to apply, but it bends too much and it feels weak and too soft upon application. Still, that didn’t stop me from collecting another shade, which is the 966 Desire below. It’s such a beautiful color.
786 Rosewood (matte, rosewood) – a diffused matte brick rose
808 Caress (satin, lychee pink) – a spice sheen
966 Desire (satin, ruby red) – burgundy with a subtle sheen
Bottom line, these are the best lipsticks I’ve tried this season and I highly recommend them. I may have a slight preference for the liquid version, but that’s because I like their diffused natural effect on my lips, however, both lipsticks’ form and the finishes are totally worth trying for their lasting powder and bold pigments.
Have you tried these already?
