Product Purchased by IMBB
This is going to be a review on a lipstick that I bought as part of my IMBB sponsored products scheme. I am so glad I could pick gems like these because of IMBB. This lipstick is from Dior. I am absolutely delighted about my first Dior purchase. Diorissimo 025 is from the Rouge Diorific Haute Couture Long-Wearing Lipstick range of Dior.
A satin-smooth lipstick that moisturizes and protects your lips. A perfect balance between wear and comfort. Provides stain-free, long-wearing, maximum color-true intensity, depth and radiance.
Rs. 2500 for 3.5 gm.
Packaging: Dior Diorific lipstick has one of the most gorgeous gold packaging in lipsticks out there. The lipstick comes in a golden outer cardboard box. The lipstick is not the conventional cylindrical or rectangular shape. It is kind of an hourglass shape with detailing (the actual shape is a bit difficult to describe). Although I love, love, love the packaging, the absolute gold color of the case made photographing it a nightmare. Instead of attempting to describe any further (and probably failing), I will leave you all to admire the pictures.
My Experience with Dior Diorific 025 Diorissimo Long-Wearing True Colour Lipstick:
Shade: Diorissimo, in simple words, is a beautiful peach shade. I love peachy colors, but till now, hadn’t been able to find my perfect one. My search is over with Dior Diorissimo. It is neither too bright nor too dull. It doesn’t wash out my face like many other peaches do. It is a subtle and classic shade which can never fail you. Sadly, it won’t suit all skin tones. It will nevertheless be a perfect party as well as an everyday shade for some people. I think I am in love! 😛
Pigmentation: This aspect is quite tricky. If applied directly from the tube, it gives quite an okay pigmentation with three swipes needed to provide the optimum coverage. But when applied using a lip brush, it provides good pigmentation though still not great. Also, I have seen that it applies smoother with a lip brush.
Texture: The texture of this lipstick is creamy and smooth. The finish is satin. It applies smoothly without any tugging and pulling. It does not bleed, neither does it settle into any lines. It is not at all drying, rather it is mildly moisturising. However, it does cling to dry patches and hence prior exfoliation of lips will only enhance its beauty. It transfers, though very less.
The lipstick has a smell which is quite strong, especially just after the opening the tube. The smell lingers for around 20-30 minutes after application. If you are sensitive to fragrances, do remember to take a sniff at the store before purchasing this lipstick.
Staying Power: I am disappointed to say that for a lipstick claiming to be long lasting, it does not live up to its claims. It has average staying power. When applied directly from the tube, it lasts for 3-3.5 hours. When it’s applied using a lip brush, the staying power is better by 30-40 minutes. However, it does not disappear fully with a meal, it only fades to a tint.
Pros of Dior Diorific 025 Diorissimo Long-Wearing True Colour Lipstick:
- A perfect peach shade.
- Satiny finish.
- Glides on the lips effortlessly.
- Does not feel drying.
- Mildly hydrating.
- Does not settle into lines, does not bleed.
- Transfers partially, but not completely.
Cons of Dior Diorific 025 Diorissimo Long-Wearing True Colour Lipstick:
- Pigmentation is not that great, I need a couple of swipes for the color to show up.
- Has a weird smell that lingers for a while.
- Staying power is average, lasts for 3.-3.5 hours.
Would I Recommend/Repurchase Dior Diorific 025 Diorissimo Long-Wearing True Colour Lipstick?
I will recommend it only if you are crazy about the shade like I am. Otherwise, it hasn’t got many qualities apart from its packaging that might have made it a must have. I will not repurchase this shade though I might go back and pick some other shades that I had tried and loved.
