Sorry for getting your hopes up right there but no one’s taking off anything, much less the Lipstick Bandits :P
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 :)
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!
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 :)
