Dior surprised me with the new 2021 lipstick collection, so I decided to jump on it! Classic Rouge Dior lipsticks are now presented in new refillable packaging which fell apart when I removed the lipstick from the box)) Not a luxury experience!
I don’t understand the refill concept if it costs only $8 less than a full-size lipstick. What is the reason to buy an ugly refill for $30? The refill cost should be no more than 60% of the full-size price like Cle de Peau or Hermes lipsticks refills.
2021 Rouge Dior Lipstick 449 Dansante (satin) is a light neutral beige without shimmer. By neutral I mean not too pink, yellow or grey. I would say it’s more warm beige than cool. The texture is just right: glides smoothly without leaking. Not overly moisturizing.
Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick 449 Dansante is a color-chameleon. Have a look at how different it may look with lighter or darker lighting!
2021 Rouge Dior Lipstick 449 Dansante is definitely lighter than my lips’ natural color. That’s why I apply it just with one swipe. In my opinion, overapplying a light beige lipstick may look vulgar.
2021 Rouge Dior Lipstick 449 Dansante is a versatile color that can be used with all kinds of lip liners and lip glosses to create different shades.
2021 Rouge Dior Lipstick 625 Mitzah surprised me even more! On the Nordstrom website, 625 Mitzah looked like a cool matte lilac shade. Such an intriguing color! But on my lips, it turned into soft casual sophisticated pink. Pink lipsticks rarely look good on me, so I’ll take that.
2021 Rouge Dior Lipstick 625 Mitzah is also a versatile shade that can be mixed with tons of lip liners to make it lighter or darker, warmer or cooler. The texture is soft and non-drying. I did apply a lip balm before using it.
Dior Lip Liner 100 Nude Look is a medium peach beige color. I’m a big fan of nude lip liners because they can be mixed with all kinds of lipsticks and lip glosses.
