Dior Rouge Dior Liquid Lip Stain in Poison Metal

Dior Rouge Dior Liquid Lip Stain in Poison Metal

When it comes to lip products, Dior don't mess around. Two recent launches found their way into my makeup collection - the gorgeous, subtly shimmery (but totally wearable) Double Rouge lipstick in Miss Crush, and this bad boy - the Dior Liquid Lip Stain in Poison Metal.

The shade range for Dior's new liquid lipstick formula is impressive - four finishes, from matte up to full-on metallic, and 24 shades. I'm a broken record when it comes to liquid lipsticks; most are far too drying for my taste, and give me cat's bum lips within about 15 seconds. The formula here is a different animal - smooth, unbelieveably pigmented (see the swatch below) and very easy to apply. Compared to your average liquid lipstick, they are more forgiving on unevenness and texture. Take that with a pinch of salt though - unless you have fillers or natural insta-lips they won't give a smooth, totally texture-free finish. The formula does dry down, and is lightweight and comfortable to wear.

I mean look at that pigmentation! The shiny, metallicy-ness is there without being glittery - the shade Poison Metal is a grown-up, modern, vampy metallic for those-who-don't-do-glitter. It does set a little more burgundy than it looks in the tube, but it is a beautiful colour.

 A very rare shot of my actual face. Excuse the application.

The only discrepancy I have is the slightly wild wear-time claim. 12 hour wear, you say, Dior? Umm... no. If you plan on eating/drinking/talking in that 12 hours, you'll definitely find this wears off. Gently though - no white gummy gross ring of product - and it's easy to reapply and layer without bobbling up or peeling away. It is not transfer proof either, FYI - bear that in mind if that's a dealbreaker for you.

For such a dark, vampy colour and in a liquid form, I think this is a pretty good effort. Not for everyone, but it's a keeper for me.

Have you tried these liquid lipsticks?

  1. I haven't tried any of these, but I've been curious about them. I'm usually not a fan of the metallic finish on the lips, but this one doesn't look too over-the-top - it's very pretty!
