Dior is embracing the new lip treatment cosmetic trend with their new Dior Rouge Brillant. What makes the Dior Rouge Brillant stand apart from the other lip treatment releases as of late is that it truly excels as a traditional lip gloss. Not just a lightly tinted lip treatment, these perform as beautifully pigmented glosses, but with all the added benefits of a lip treatment including three highly refractive treatment oils.
This is an extensive collection release of 12 gorgeous shades. The Rouge Brillant is an ultra-fine gloss balm containing treatment oils, antioxidant vitamin E, and a lip plumping ingredient. And unlike most of the new lip treatment cosmetic releases these glosses pack a healthy does of pigment! They feel amazing on. No stickiness at all and they don’t feel oily. Rather they feel like a lightweight cushy gel or balm. They don’t turn all tacky and weird after wearing for a while as some lip glosses can. They simply gradually wear away leaving your lips feeling hydrated and comfortable.
The three shades I have tested are Bonheur, Victoire, and Darling. All offer a nice amount of colour and have a very fine micro shimmer that doesn’t translate as shimmer on the lips but rather adds to the radiance and shine of the gloss.
The applicator for these is really genius. The felt tip applicator has a little reservoir in it so that it picks up the perfect amount of product for application. One dip gives a sheer application for the whole mouth, or 1 dip per lip gives more colour coverage.
468 Bonheur is a pale warm pink. Subtle on the lips but lovely pale pink with a softly nude effect.
808 Victoire is a really pretty juicy orange coral shade. I really love it! I thought it might look off on my but it totally works.
775 Darling is a positively stunning bright fuchsia pink. So impressed with the pigmentation on this one. You may want to apply and blend in a lip liner with this one. The first time I tested it I experienced really bad bleeding with it. It settled in lines and travelled far outside my lips. Funny thing is though I have tested it 3 times since with no issue at all. Possibly it had something to do with skincare or a balm I had on first time testing? Not sure but the issue hasn’t repeated itself. Just giving you fair warning just in case.
I get about 2 hours wear time out of these which is typical for me with a lipgloss. I think most people get more wear time out of their lip products than I do though so keep that in mind. The formula is enriched with long-wear contour waxes to enhance their lasting power. I certainly get more wear time out of these than other lip treatment glosses I’ve tested.
The 12 shades of Dior Rouge Brillant are all permanent. The collection is previewing exclusively at Hudson’s Bay beginning March 1st, 2015. They will be at Dior Counters nationwide on April 1st, 2015.
