Rouge Dior Lip Balm

Rouge-Dior-LipbalmA simple way to wear a coloured lip product. My kind of deal. While I’ve only ventured out of my comfort zone and wore Dior’s deepest lipstick colour from the previous collection outside of my house that one time, I’m much more comfortable starting it all off with a tinted lip balm. I don’t have to colour inside the lines, or keep anything looking sharp and straight on the lips. It’s forgiving for a lip newbie like myself.

4-Dior-lip-balmsAll the colours. I love each and every one of them. This isn’t an exaggeration, I’ve been wearing them every day in rotation because they’re that easy.

Dior states the days of choosing between lip care and makeup are over. Bursting with freshness, the allure created is one of youth, and vibrancy. Isn’t that the case.

As any tinted lip balm, it doesn’t last after a meal.

Lip-balms-by-DiorThe lip balm formula isn’t greasy nor does it bleed. I’ve had those kind of lip products before. They went straight to the garbage after I discovered it to bleed. Not one’s finest look.

Dior-Lip-BalmsWith any collection, there’s always a bit of hesitancy with a colour or two. This one being Star — thinking it would be too nude or shimmery on my lips. But turned out to tie with my other favourite, the darkest of the collection I received: Lili.

Dior-StarStar is initially marketed as a finishing touch to a lipstick, but I prefer to wear it on its own for a glossy effect.

Dior-SpringSpring is a beautiful sunny toned coral that brightens the face up, on those cloudy fall mornings where you’re missing the summer sun and simply don’t want to get out of bed. Pop this baby on, and you’re instantly radiant.

Dior-DioretteDiorette is more on the fuschia side of colours. Not too much of a difference between Lili and Diorette to be honest, but Diorette is more brighter and pinker.

Dior-LiliLili my favourite of the lot, it’s a berry colour that gives my own lips a “your lips but better” look. I dislike that phrase so much, but it’s the best way to describe it. A more muted colour than Diorette.

As for the swatches on my arm, Diorette and Lili come off differently. Left to right: Star, Spring, Diorette, Lili.Dior-Lip-Balm-Swatches

  1. Wow! I really think I would like this product! It looks gorgeous on you! (Well, you are beautiful so you don’t need it, really!) But I like that it isn’t too lipstick-y because I am not a lipstick person! Haha :)

  2. i like your phrase ‘lip newbie’ and am going to claim that title for myself. i want to start wearing lipsticks but choosing a color that i like/will work is daunting. i like the idea of a lip balm though, to get used to wearing color on my lips but doesn’t bleed or permanently stain my lips a horridly bright pink (please say i’m not the only one that has happened to)

  3. @Laura Waxman: Oh it’s happened to me countless times. I throw away the product after it “bleeds out” on me. Not the look I’m going for. Dior lip products don’t bleed on me, nor do Buxom, YSL, or Maybelline Revlon. Give those a try maybe? :)
