This month I tried the newer Dior Matte Lipstick in 999 Matte, which is a bright red lipstick.
The pro’s of this lipstick are clearly the packaging. I mean look at this beauty:
And… well, that’s it.
Seriously. The packaging was beautiful and the shade of lipstick was lovely. But it had no staying power whatsoever. I gave it the ultimate test – a dinner party. I had to reapply it 3 times during the party. And it got all over everything. Boo.
Even on a regular day, it just had no staying power. No lipliner or setting helped that.
Plus, although I read this is common with this brand, it had a very overpowering floral smell. Strong enough you can taste it.
My unsophisticated opinion? Save your$35 and buy a different brand. Or like 15 Wet n Wild lipsticks.
