Dior’s spring 2017 collection is in full bloom.
Today I’m talking matte lipsticks. I’m so glad that matte lipsticks are still on trend, because I love how they look, and as they continue to stay in fashion, brands improve on their formulas (on a finish of lipstick that is notoriously uncomfortable).
Recently Dior released 50 shades to the Rouge Dior line, and with that big number came some bold shades – including coral-reds, and a grey (review HERE)! These two new shades are a great addition to the Rouge line. Join me in welcoming ‘Distinct Matte’, and ‘Terrific Matte’ to the family.
They come in the classic Rouge Dior packaging – a navy blue and silver tube, coming in a matching box.
‘Distinct Matte’ is taupe-y milk chocolate. It reminds me of that 90’s grunge-inspired lip.
‘Terrific Matte’ is a rosy auburn red, that is like the older sister of ColourPop’s ‘Bumble’.
I am so impressed with these lipsticks. Not only are the shades a nice stray on the norm, but the formulas are great. They felt comfortable, creamy, and had fantastic coverage – no third or fourth swipe necessary. The pigmentation was exactly what I look for in a lipstick – not sheer, but not so pigmented that it’s stark. I even noticed that when I blotted down ‘Terrific Matte’ with a tissue (and expected a stain to be left behind), although it felt lighter on my lips, the punch of the colour looked exactly the same as when I first applied it. If you’re looking for a luxury lipstick, I’d definitely recommend checking these two shades out.
You can find Rouge Dior Lipsticks ($43.00 CAD) at Dior counters now.
