FOTD || Red Lips X Dior

As-Salaamu Alaikum
Peace Be Upon You

Today I wanted to review this Christian Dior lipstick with you, as well as share my face of the day. My old school readers will know how much I love a good red lip, usually in the darker and matte spectrum so in terms of texture this was really a new venture.

Red’s always a risky colour, it can bleed easily and can go all over the place. I paired this colour with one of my favourite lip liners ever! You guessed it! It’s Rimmel London Exaggerate lip liner in ‘Red Diva’. I just lined the lips in this colour to prevent the bleeding and applied the lipstick on ever so smoothly and softly.  The pigmentation is strong, it has a soft powder scent to it and it definitely has a creamy sheen to it.

For the first time ever, I really enjoyed a creamy satin lipstick, it made my lips look young, full and plumped! Go have a look at the third picture down (taken in flash) to see what I’m harping about. It’s great, isn’t it?!

Being that it’s a creamy lipstick, it obviously transfers when eating/drinking so it’s a definite staple in my bag when I’m using it.img_3518img_3522img_3546img_3557

Overall, the colour itself is great, I’m not too fond of the scent (reminds me of old ladies perfume/ 90’s chalky candy), however the colour is GREAT! It’s not something I see myself reaching to for an everyday sort of lipstick as I like something that’s easy to use and mess/fuss free. With a good lipliner to set the lips and two coats of this lip, your set and ready to go. I feel uber confident and great when I wear this colour, so definitely one for the occasions!

Now  all I need is an occasion to get ready for so I can bring this out to play again!

I hope you enjoy! Until the next post x
