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?!

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!
