Lipstick Bandits Take it All Off! Well, not quite…

Sorry for getting your hopes up right there but no one’s taking off anything, much less the Lipstick Bandits icon razz Lipstick Bandits Take it All Off! Well, not quite...

The assignment for this round was “Nude Lipstick” and if you notice, its not something I’m terribly keen on so I had to leave it till the last minute. But its at dire times like these that providence intervenes, and I managed to find a nude lip after all, thanks to the newest Rouge Dior Nude Lipstick collection! Hurrah!

The colour you see here is Trench (319). I chose Trench because I felt that on me, it was the most “nude” whereby it evened out the tone of my lips whilst not washing me out and making me look like the walking dead. Conventionally “nude” lipsticks tend to do that to me. I attribute it to the slightly warm peachy tones in the tube.

The Rouge Dior Nude Lipstick collection is a collection of 10 light coloured lipsticks that are quite transparent and luminous so unlike previous Rouge Dior lipsticks, these aren’t the strong opaque textures I’ve come to associate with Rouge Dior. Yet I like how Dior has interpreted their version of nude lipstick – the 10 colours range from peaches to pinks and much to my pleasure, its all very wearable. I will show you some other colours later, but for today, its Trench (and also other nude lipsticks from the rest of the Bandits).

Trench is a beige-peach colour I usually will not look twice at.

If this was the regular Rouge Dior texture, I’d have passed on it, because it would have been too opaque and I would have likely looked washed out. However, the new texture, what Dior calls a “Lip Blush” is quite apt a description. It imparts a blush of colour to the lips with a lighter, sheerer texture.

It feels light on lips and very comfortable. The colour is transparent so it does not look like you blotted your lips out with concealer or that you have lost all colour in your lips. I must note that I have quite pigmented lips so the colour you see here on me could be a bit more pink than on someone who has less pigmented lips. Having pigmented lips is a bane, if I were the sort to want to find a true nude lip shade, but happily, I’m more drawn to colours icon smile Lipstick Bandits Take it All Off! Well, not quite...

I love the texture of Rouge Dior lipsticks. I always have, because they are so lovely and strong in colour. But I have also come to appreciate that sometimes, a light blush of lip colour is what we need.

In a nutshell

Rouge Dior Nude Lipstick has a lighter and sheerer texture than the regular Rouge Dior lipsticks. Dior says these are a Lip Blush. I like the texture which is smooth as per regular Rouge Diors but they aren’t balmy like that of the Dior Addict lipsticks. The Nude lipstick collection has 10 shades of which Trench is one of the signature shades. In the tube, it is a peachy beige shade. On my lips, it is a natural and light peach-beige shade that evens out the tone of my lips but allows my natural lip colour to come through as well. It is a very pleasant day to day colour that I could see myself wearing often, aside from my usual reds, pinks and roses.

Pros: No scent or taste, Light texture, Comfortable on lips, Wearable for most, Allowed me to find a nude lipstick that I could comfortably wear!

Cons: Pricey

Who will like this: Anyone who is looking for a nude lip colour but does not want one that blots out your natural lip colour

If this isn’t for you, the rest of the Lipstick Bandits will have other nude lipstick choices to whet your appetite icon smile Lipstick Bandits Take it All Off! Well, not quite...

Are you a Rouge Dior fan like I am? Do you have a favourite nude lipstick?

If you are like me, and haven’t quite found your nude lipstick yet, you could do worse than take a peep at what Rouge Dior Lip Blushes have to offer icon wink Lipstick Bandits Take it All Off! Well, not quite...

Thank you Saphy :) Do check out the new Dior range of nude lipstick. I’m sure you can find a colour you like – I never could wear nude lipstick either!

OOO I still have to check this line out! Trench looks gorgeous on you (I love its Vernis counterpart. It’ll be on my blog tomorrow)! I’ve tried Addict and Addict Extreme, but not Rouge Dior yet and it seems like I’m really missing out!

Reply

Paris B September 26, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Haha yes! I actually prefer Rouge Dior for a more grown up lipstick as I find the Addict lipsticks too balmy and glossy to look truly grown up. So these are great – give them a go! :)

Stunning! You and Wands are twinsies! I love this on you; it turned into a brown-ish rose. Gorgeous.

LOVE it Paris! You look so pretty! It’s not too pale which I like. I really want to go check out this nude collection of Dior’s. I haven’t had the chance to yet!

Paris B September 26, 2012 at 7:01 pm

Thanks Tracy! I liked that there was colour too! I’m actually deathly afraid of nude lipstick but this range from Dior is a good one. Hope you get to check it out soon.

I tried this too but I didn’t get it! Needed to see if I have a similar nude in my stash (I’m starting to lose track what color is what, meep!) before acquiring another.

Paris B September 26, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Haha… I lose track all the time! >.<

Larie September 25, 2012 at 1:10 am

I still haven’t tried any of the new Dior lipsticks, but since they get a rave from you, I will have to put that on the list!

Reply

Paris B September 26, 2012 at 7:03 pm

Yes, do check them out! There’s a whole selection of light/nude lip colours and you know how we both love Rouge Dior… ;)

I absolutely love nude lipsticks and this looks really good on you Paris :) xx

Thank you S! Its hard for me to find a good nude lipstick and I’m so glad Dior came up with these! :D

Dior is for sure very popular this time round! Looks very chic on you, Paris :)

Thanks Rocaille, and I was surprised too to see the other Dior choice! :D

I must admit that I don’t spend enough time looking at Dior’s various formulations. Trench may have to be the first of its kind that I purchase: it looks lovely on you Paris!

That looks great on you! I’m still on the hunt for my perfect nude lipstick, the closest I’ve found so far is Revlon Matte in Mauve It Over. Maybe I’ll give Dior a go!

Reply

Lily September 25, 2012 at 10:26 am

I like Mauve It Over too – pigmented enough to show up on lips. However, this one from Dior gives lips a nice sheen (since it’s not matte) and it’s so comfortable to wear :-)

Reply

Huda September 25, 2012 at 3:52 pm

And to the Dior counter I shall go ;)

Since we both like Mauve It Over, what other similar nudes would you recommend? Thanks!

Reply

Lily September 25, 2012 at 3:55 pm

I bought Grege from this range. It’s my closest MLBB (my lips but better). I did a review on it, so you can check out the lip swatch. Not gonna spam PB’s post with my link though ;-)

Reply

Paris B September 27, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Thank you Huda :D I haven’t tried the Revlon one, but if you have the budget for it, do take a look at the Dior selection. There may be one closer to something you might like ;)

Reply

Lily September 25, 2012 at 10:23 am

I tried this too! I picked up Grege instead because that’s my best nude. Love this formula. I’ve been wearing it so much, the imprinted “Dior” is half gone ;-)

Reply

Paris B September 27, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Wow that’s quick! :D I like Grege too. Its slightly brighter on me, and less “nude” but I think the whole range is great. Finally, we can find a nude lipstick that doesn’t make us look dead!

Thank you Sasha :) I have that problem with nude lipstick too! But the Dior ones are good – did you check out my other post where I showed 4 of them? :D

I’ve loved all the nude lippies featured in all the Lipstick Bandits’ posts, but I must say I think this one is my favorite. I also think it’s the one that would look best on me–or at least I’m hoping, because I’m definitely running to Nordstrom to swatch it this weekend :D You look beautiful, as always, Paris!

Paris B September 27, 2012 at 11:17 pm

You’re sweet Becca thanks! Can’t wait to hear what you think of the new Dior Lippies!
