Dior Rouge Dior Liquid Matte Finish Review + Swatches

Hey there again lipsticks lovers! Here’s another exciting new release from Dior, the Rouge Dior Liquid (0.20 oz for $35) that comes in three different finishes; Matte, Satin, & Metallic. Each three effects carry such beautiful array of shades that are simply hard to resist.

 

Dior Rouge Dior Liquid Matte Finish review

 

The Rouge Dior Liquid Lipsticks are meant to be well-pigmented, good coverage lipsticks that promise comfort and lasting longevity. I’ve been waiting for these liquid lipsticks for some time. It’s like “finally, now there’s a liquid version of Dior’s well-performing Rouge Dior Lipstick!”. Since I’m a fan of the mattes of Rouge Dior, I thought it would be interesting to see how their Rouge Dior Liquid in Matte Finish would fare.

Dior Rouge Dior Liquid Matte Finish

These liquid lipsticks retained the same typical Dior scent/flavor of lipsticks, which is powdery-floral. In other words, it’s pretty much the same scent as the Rouge Dior Lipsticks (reviewed HERE). They come in a nice sleek black tube that kinda resembles the Nars Powermatte Lipsticks, but still has the Dior style and initials on the cap. The brush applicator is very interesting, it’s sort of hollow like a reservoir for the product that will be applied on the lips. With that being said, I usually use up to two swipes to get a full coverage on my lips. That’s because these lipsticks are creamy but not extremely so. If you’re familiar with Bareminerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lip Color (reviewed HERE) and Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet (also reviewed HERE), then the Rouge Dior Liquid is not that different from those them. They’re what I call a “comfortable matte” kind of lipsticks. They all start as creamy, and maybe even powdery as in the case of Burberry, then they have a matte finish once they set, but they never get too dry and they feel lightweight. They may still transfer but not so much, and they don’t bleed. Their effects are beautiful because it’ll look like you always have fresh matte lipsticks on. The Rouge Dior Liquid is probably the one that doesn’t transfer the most.

These are the kind of lipsticks that are worth having as one of your ride or die type of lipsticks. They’re non-drying but their effect is matte, they’re well-pigmented but they’re wearable, they transfer but only very slightly. I find that once these Rouge Dior Liquids settled on the lips, which didn’t take much time, you would have to really press it firmly against a glass or the back of your hands to actually see the smudge or transfer, which makes these lipsticks very reliable.

As for these lipsticks to be long wearing, it actually depends on each and every shade. For the lighter shades, I get a good 7 & 1/2 hours of wear with some stains still on my lips, despite eating and snacking. For the darker colors, these are pretty much beyond 7 hours for sure, because they stain the lips very well.

 

Here are some of the mattes I picked:

Dior Rouge Dior Liquid Matte Finish 625 mysterious matte, 828 dressed to matte

424 Hypnotic MatteDark Pink. I don’t know if it’s my pigmented lips or that this lipstick’s shade was wrongly described, but I wouldn’t call this a dark pink. This is like nude to warm beige with a hint of pink. This is my fave shade for my light-medium complexion because it doesn’t make me look too washed-out, because of the pink in it.

 

574 Lively MatteDusty Pink. I would call this a mauvy pink. Although a little bit more pinkish for my taste, this shade really brightens the face and very spot on for the summer. Also a great pink color for fair to light skin tones.

 

614 Jungle MatteLight Brown. True to its description, I love that this gives enough warmth on my lips. A bit close to my lips’ natural shade, but still very wearable and great for a daytime look. Perhaps the similar shade for this would be Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in Bestie.

 

625 Mysterious MatteBrownish Pink. Beeyoutiful! Sexy and Perfect. This shade is definitely mysteriously gorgeous. Just like or similar to the Nars Audacious Lipstick in Mona (Emma Stone’s lip color when she won the Oscar’s, reviewed and swatched HERE), this shade is stunning and it really looks great if you have a light-medium to deep complexion. Love the perfect blend of terracotta and pink.

 

828 Dressed To MatteReddish Brown. If 625 Mysterious Matte is beautiful, this shade is taking it up to another level. A perfect red wine color that will truly elevate your look. I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to buy this or not, but thank goodness I did.

 

Bottom line, the Rouge Dior Liquid Matte Finish Lipsticks are definitely worth a try and to have. If you love matte finish or matte liquid lipsticks but hate the drying effect, then these are definitely for you. Also, these come in different shades and finishes that will for sure suit to your liking. So, which is which?

Rouge Dior Matte Lipsticks Review

Since my last “Samples of The Week” Review, I’ve been testing a few Rouge Dior Matte Finish Lipsticks. But, in order to do that, I needed to try and swatch them in real life and see the colors exactly with my own eyes. I’ve seen these lippies before and I’ve even swatched them several times before, but I just couldn’t bring myself to purchase one because I find the shades to be mostly in the reddish side. I wasn’t bothered by the texture nor the scent, but I wanted more warm neutrals, muted plums, rosewoods and brick tones in it, so I guess I waited a bit more to see if there were more shades being released.

Fortunately, it seems like Dior’s been listening and they’ve released a couple of limited edition shades every season. These shades are somewhat more inclined to my fancy and with my recent Samples of The Week Post (found HERE), I fell in love with the Rouge Dior 772 Classic Matte Shade. This whole lineup of Rouge Dior Matte Finish Lipsticks have more variety of shades now than when it was reformulated and released I think about a year ago. In fact, the whole range of Rouge Dior Lipsticks have been reformulated and enhanced with more shades to choose from. Apart from the popular matte finish, these lipsticks also come in satin finishes and shimmers as well.

Packaging is really sleek. These lipsticks come in black/silver tube with a black cap on the outside and red lining inside. I don’t dislike the scent, but some may find it to be too much. At first, I thought they smell a bit like baby powder and cotton candy, but the more I use them, I sensed the hint of musky jasmine in it. The texture can be a bit drying as I’ve said before, but it’s lightweight and pretty much long-lasting. They’re well pigmented too. Mine lasts 4-6 hours of wear with some traces of colors still visible on my lips. The price is perhaps one of the main caveat of these lipsticks. Each costs $35 so you really need to choose wisely. Other than that, I really enjoyed these lippies and I recommend them to each and every one of you.

Rouge Dior Matte Lipsticks Review

 

  • 772 Classic Matte – A neutral muted pinkish shade that I first fell in love with upon trying it from a sample. It’s the perfect everyday lip color and it doesn’t look over the top. Definitely a classic shade that works for any skin tone.
  • 745 Terrific Matte – A muted rosewood shade that is probably my most favorite color of all the Rouge Dior Matte Finish lipstick line. This shade might be kinda hard to find because I think this is a limited edition for Spring 2017, so I’d better stock up on this color asap.
  • 951 Absolute Matte – I love red lipsticks, but bright reds don’t love me, lol. Red bricks do. So I went and took this shade with me home. I love muted reds and this shade is the best red I could pull off.

 

Overall, I love these Rouge Dior Matte Lipsticks much. If you can stomach the price, I think they’re reliable and so worth it, just don’t sell your kidney for it, lol! Anyhow, I recommend you try at least one or two perhaps and see it for yourself. Alrighty?
