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 natural rosewood

  • 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. ????

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.

Dior Vernis Review

Dior Vernis review

 

This is my first time trying out the Dior Nail Polish and I honestly can say that I love their nail colors so much already. I’ve always been using Chanel for most of my high-end nail lacquers (reviewed HERE), supplemented by a bunch of OPI, Essie, and China Glaze. This time I’m venturing into other nail polishes to see if the grass is really always greener on the other side. Well, I’m happy to say that yeah, perhaps, it almost always is, except for a few caveats.

 

The Dior Vernis nail colors are all in a gel formula, just like the new Chanel Le Vernis. It goes on smoothly and feels very rich and creamy while fast-drying at the same time. The brush applicator is wide and very precise, which I’m really impressed at. Also, the scent of this particular nail polish is not as strong as the other nail polishes I’ve tried before, even slightly less than Chanel’s. The very best thing about the Dior Vernis Gel Shine is that the colors are extremely versatile, wearable, very classic and well-pigmented. I noticed that I seem to like most of their shades and would want to wear them all.

 


 

dior vernis incognito 257

  • Incognito (257) – Definitely the best nail color if you want something subtle yet sophisticated. It’s a very corporate shade and also very casual. The best definition would be that this nail color is very versatile for everyday use. The perfect nude nail color, even more so for medium skin tones.

 

dior vernis cosmopolite 785

  • Cosmopolite (785) – I’d like to call this a vintage, retro-ish, washed-out red, or more of a brick rose-red. It’s classic but not boring and has an old-world feel. A muted red that is also very versatile. Great for when you’re bored of red nails or that red nails may be a bit too much for the occasion. This is definitely a unique red tone shade.

 

Dior Vernis mirage 338

  • Mirage (338) – If you’re a fan of purples, magentas, plums, or violet-pinks like me, then you’ll love this shade. It’s quite similar to OPI Dim Sum Plum or Essie Big Spender, but with slightly more lasting power than the other two.

 

dior vernis Massaï 853

  • Massaï (853) – My most favorite shade of the entire Dior Vernis by far, and one of the most perfect red nail color I’ve ever seen. It’s definitely a rich deep red and slightly vampy like blood. There’s no black tone nor orange tone. It’s more of a blue-toned red and the formula goes on smoothly into the nails. This nail polish definitely complements all skin tones because of its perfect beauty.

 

dior vernis nuit 1947 970

  • Nuit 1947 (970) – I love vampy shades and this one is also perfect for me. It’s a deep vampy red like wine but looks almost black in low light. It’s similar to Chanel Le Vernis in Rouge Noir than Vamp. No shimmers, just plain reddish-black nail color.

 

dior gel coat review

  • Gel Coat – This is the topcoat of choice for the Dior Vernis Gel Shine. It is meant to make the gel nail colors dry fast and to make them long-wearing. Which I think is definitely true on the fast-drying ability of this topcoat, but I’m not sure about this top coat’s long-wear potential. My nail color starts chipping on the side during the 5th day, which doesn’t happen with me whenever I use the Chanel Le Gel Coat with the Chanel Le Vernis. I don’t know if it’s this topcoat or the Dior Vernis in general, but I find this topcoat to be not as long-wearing as what it’s supposed to be. A lot of people prefer the Top Coat Abricot more than this Gel Coat, which I haven’t tried yet, but will definitely give it a go-to compare them side by side pretty soon.

Verdict: I love the Dior Vernis and will definitely recommend it to you all. The colors are great and the formula is also wonderful. I love that the scent is not too strong and it disappears quickly, and I also love the wide brush applicator for a more even application better than Chanel’s. Also, the nail colors dry very fast with the help of the designated Gel Top Coat, but it’s not as long-lasting as the Chanel Le Gel Coat (reviewed HERE). I probably get a good 7 days of wear with these Dior nail polishes, while I get almost 2 weeks from the Chanel Le Vernis. In addition to that, Chanel has a lot of colors to choose from, yet Dior Vernis’ well-pigmented pretty colors are to die for.

 

– The Dior Vernis retails for $27 in Sephora, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Saks, & Neiman Marcus.

– The Dior Gel Coat is also $27 in these following retailers: Sephora, Nordstrom, Macys & Saks

– While the Chanel Le Vernis nail polishes are also available at Nordstrom 

Have a great day friends, stay tuned for more reviews…
