Dior recently released their Cosmopolite Fall 2015 collection and I’m usually not a fan of the “colder” collections (Fall and Winter). I’m always more drawn to Spring and Summer due to their softer pastel or bright colours, but I loved these two lip products I picked up from Dior as part of their Fall collection. One being the Rouge Dior lipsitck in Nouvelle Femme ($52AUD / $35USD) and the other is the Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Versalite ($52AUD / $35USD).
Rouge Dior first. If you are not a fan of the “old lady rose” smell, then you probably won’t like this because that’s essentially what hit me the second I opened this tube. Which I should have known because I own the same lip product in different shades but I guess I have short term memory? The shade however is beautiful, pigmented and very creamy without being too shiny or wet looking. I didn’t find the formula drying, but if you do suffer from dry lips you probably want to throw on a bit of lip balm first because this does have a tendency to sink into your lip lines.
Now on to the Fluid Stick! I’m in love, In Love! I forgot how much I loved the Fluid Stick range until I put this on and it was just instant. It’s a little like a lip gloss, lip stick and lip stain all thrown into one. Glides on smoothly on the lips and has this beautiful gloss, however over time (including eating) the glossiness will fade and you’ll be left with this stunning lip colour that doesn’t dry out your lips and can last almost an entire working day. I did have a tendency to reapply every few hours just to keep the gloss effect but I really didn’t have to.
Additionally, I didn’t find the consistency gloopy or sticky. It felt very smooth and slick and I’d often forget I was even wearing it.
I think it’s pretty obvious which one I love more, and what’s exciting is I actually purchased these two from Myer Online. Exciting because this is the first time I’ve ever purchased from a local departmental store online. I usually purchase off Nordstrom and have it shipped to Australia via a mail forwarder (how I purchase 90% of my makeup) but due to the dive in our currency it works out about the same to now purchase locally. I will admit though, the online shopping experience for Myer is nothing compared to Nordstrom nor Sephora. Australia have a loooong way to go.
