Dior has released four limited edition shades of Long-Wearing True Color Lipstick with their new Grand Bali Collection for Holiday 2012. At a glance I thought the lipsticks were available in a limited edition packaging but actually they are the same dumbbell shape of the original Diorific Lipsticks but the entire tube is gold versus the original blue and gold design.
These are elegant lipsticks with a high quality formula that contains an intense color pay off. The price reflects that at $36 per lipstick.
Let’s take a look!
Dior Diorific Long Wearing True Color Lipstick is truly full throttle lipstick right down to the elegant packaging. Housed in a unique gold tube this lipstick doesn’t skimp on elegant packaging or formula.
This formula offers a deep, rich color pay off with intense pigmentation in a semi-matte finish formulation. There is no glossiness, no shimmer, no sparkle, or glitter in this mix. Although semi-matte in finish it still has a hydrating feel that wears comfortably and long. I’m very impressed with the wear on this as even without a lip liner it stays in place and lasts at least five hours without the need for a touch up.
The colors are rich shades of Holiday red and I was a little scared of them at first. Thoughts of me looking like a clown definitely danced through my head after swiveling the shades up. But the colors have just the right amount of warmth to them that I find them completely wearable. They are sophisticated, elegant, and very festive for the upcoming Holidays. Every girl needs a perfect shade of red lipstick and chances are you’ll easily locate at least one in the Diorific Holiday 2012 shades.
Diorling and Lady
Being such bold shades of red I worried they’d migrate around my lip line but once in place they stayed true all day. Color remained in place and stayed vibrant and beautiful all day without losing any of the intensity of my first application.
Overall, Diorific Long Wearing True Color Lipstick is expensive but well worth indulging in if you like posher makeup. Dior did an excellent job with the packaging and the formula here. They exceeded my expectations as I was worried about the finish and the boldness of the colors but both turned out wonderfully well. Red is the shade of the season and these take festive to gorgeous levels!
If you’re going to buy one beautiful lipstick this year let it be one of these gorgeous reds.
You won’t regret it.
