I have a love-hate relationship with red lipstick.
Red lipstick is a classic in anyone’s makeup collection. In fact, I would probably say it’s the colour most people purchase. There’s something so feminine and daring about red lipstick. Although it’s incredibly sexy, it’s also incredibly messy, which is the reason I don’t often wear it.
But then Dior Makeup comes out with a new lipstick collection that has a ton of reds and I can’t help but want to slather my lips in it.
Brand new to the makeup line are the Dior Ultra Rouge lipsticks, with a formula that Dior Makeup’s creative and image director Peter Philips, describes as “an overprint, like an ink tattooing the lips and like an extremely weightless coloured film.”
There are 26 new, highly saturated shades in this line that is filled with reds, pinks, browns, mauves, and even a white and black.
These pigmented lipsticks are billed to offer up to 12 hours of wear with a luminous, semi-matte finish, and a hydrating, comfortable wear. Since that’s a high claim, I was very excited to get my hands on some of the shades. The brand sent me two shades to try out, Ultra Kiss, a coral pink, and Ultra Spice, a brownish red. Both shades melted onto my lips and gave me a bold wash of colour that felt hydrating and comfortable. These don’t dry down like a liquid lipstick would, so you will have to be careful when wearing them, but the colour did last me a long time even after eating and drinking.
Overall, I really like how these wore on the lips. I’m always slathering my lips in lip balm and the moisturizing factor in these was very comfortable and a breath of fresh air for my lips. Out of the two shades, I really love Ultra Kiss since it’s such a fun bold colour. Since I live and breathe in nudes, I’m sad there’s no nudes in the collection since I feel like I would keep one of those on me at all times, but if you love bold colours then I really think you’ll love these.
