Red lips are powerful, strong, striking and intoxicating and when a woman (or man for that matter) wears it sheย feels all of it’s magic engulf her as if its slowly seeping into her veins, becoming part of her, from the very moment it touches her lips.

With this years launch of the cooler, sexier, more reckless Rouge Dior, I decided to go in search of my perfect ultra-matte, shade of red. 999 Matte is the classic crimson trademark of true Dior, which sits classically cool against warm Sun kissed skin and beach bleached highlights.





But there’s now a Legendary Red shade for everyone, which means choosing the perfect tone, finish and identity is now possible with all the added benefits of the unique House of Dior formulation.

884 Trafalgar, 872 Victoire, 999, 644 Sydney & 743 Rouge Zinnia encapsulate the Couture identity of the Iconic Rouge Dior collection.


When choosing your shade play close attention to the lipstick that enhances your natural colouring and doesn’t wash-out skin tone or eye colour. It is also advised to darken but not over shadow or colour your eye makeup when wearing red lips. Opt for a smokey sultry eye with nude tones to really allow your Couture shade to demand attention.


Available nationwide from 1st September 2016.

    Your so right – wearing different shades of lipsticks really brings out different shades of personality. And like you said red is very powerful and intoxicating.
    And you look absolutely gorgeous in red!

    One of my friends always wears red lipstick – it’s so classic and classy. I love it. I’ll have to let her know about this new collection (or keep it secret and get her one as a gift for her birthday)!

    I usually shy away from such bight shades as red, but maybe I’ll give it a try!
    I post every Monday and Thursday, I would love it if you stopped by! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve never seen you wear a red lip before Lydia, but you should more often as it really suits you. I also love a classic red lip, my faves are Chanel & Tom Ford shades.
    Hugs Adele xoxo

    What a beautiful color. I would love to be able to wear a red lip, but it just dosen’t look good on me. At least I don’t think so. Maybe I just haven’t found the right shade yet?

    So beautiful Lydia! You can never fail with the perfect shade of lipstick, when I am feeling rubbish / unmotivated to put on a full face of makeup, a slick of lipstick and sunglasses never fail to make me feel me again! Immy x

    May I ask, what lens did you use for your EPL7?
