How Do You Like My New Red Lipstick?

How Do You Like My New Red Lipstick?

I came back from holiday to a lovely little surprise parcel from Christian Dior… A sample of their new range of Matte lipsticks in Rouge 999. I would remind you at this point that I’m not affiliated to Dior but having spent a fortune on their counter in John Lewis, Cheadle recently, my name is clearly registered in their computers as ‘worth sending a tester too as she’s a ‘sucker’ for makeup!!”…..


Although it’s described as matte, I think it does have a slight sheen and therefore doesn’t feel as dry as some matte lipsticks do. It feels quite creamy and moist on the lips. I have to say I like it and after an hour or so, it’s still going strong..

This will definitely be a keeper and one I’ll be wearing to those Xmas Parties… sorry – I know you don’t want to think about Xmas yet but time is passing quickly and it will soon be upon us.

I think I may even upgrade from the ‘tester’ size to the real deal – they say size doesn’t matter but in this case I need more!

(now here I almost wrote “I told you I was a sucker”….then I realised how rude it sounded… so I took it out…. then I laughed! so hey ho…I can’t help it if I’ve got a ‘naughty’ sense of humour!)

I thought I’d show you how it looks. Let me know what you think in the comments below..

        I love most shades of red. The one I wear the most is by Marc Jacobs!

          I’ve never tried Marc Jacobs makeup but I know my niece who’s a makeup artist loves it… I’ll have a look next time I’m makeup shopping (due a trip soon).. xx

    I love my “red” lip stick. I think that color is a winner on you. Where can I get on the list for lip stick in the mail? 🙂

      Hi Myra – so sorry about the delayed response – I’ve just noticed a bunch of comments that I’d somehow missed previously on this post.. I’m glad you like this one – hey maybe one of these days I’ll be able to set up a mini ‘mail order’ shop! haha.. Much appreciated – thanks for taking time to comment and I’m sorry about delay! xx

    It’s indeed pretty – when I try bright colors, they seem to stain the outline of my mouth darker than lips. Am currently in love with Boom by Cindy Joseph, which goes on cheeks as well.

    • September 4, 2016 / 11:45 pm

      I’m glad you like it. I’ll keep a look out for the Cindy Joseph lippy too.. x

        It has to be bought via mail – Are you in England? Dunno if she ships there

        • September 5, 2016 / 6:40 am

          Yes I’m in the UK – I’ll have a look on line.. thanks though x

    • September 4, 2016 / 11:46 pm

      Ah- thanks so much – I have to say I liked it and it lasted really well. Much appreciated xx

    Yes I think that looks nice
    🙂 I always look bloodstained rather than glamorous in red lipstick! x
