Dior Belle de Nuit Rouge Dior Lip Color

Dior Belle de Nuit Rouge (841) Dior Lip Color ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a fiery orange-red with copper micro-shimmer. It’s more orange than it is red, almost like a coral-red, but more orange than coral!  The color coverage is mostly opaque, and the texture is creamy enough to allow the color to glide on evenly without skipping but not so creamy that it moves around.  This is totally my kind of color (but I’m starting to wonder what lip color family I don’t have some love for). Make Up For Ever #20 is a little redder but doesn’t have the copper shimmer. It’s actually similar, though deeper in color, to Chanel Mandarin. The new-for-the-holidays NARS Joyous Red is more muted, less red, and not as shimmered. CoverGirl Temptation is a touch more orange but still very similar.

Belle de Nuit is supremely long-wearing; it lasts for six full hours on my lips and proceeds to linger around for another two; at eight hours, it reaches that halfway point where it’s faded enough to be reapplied but if you’ve forgotten the tube at home, you still have a bit left on your lips. The best part about the long-wear is that my lips don’t feel chapped, dry, or otherwise dehydrated, which is impressive after eight hours.  Too bad this shade is limited edition!

The Glossover


Belle de Nuit

Belle de Nuit wears excellently--six hours or longer--and makes it through drinks/meals mostly intact. It has good color coverage, shine, and is a great holiday shade for warmer skin tones.

    With a name like Belle de Nuit I thought this would be a dark, berry, or vampy colour – guess I was wrong!

  2. artemis

    looks pretty cute even w/ shimmer 😀

  3. Sofia

    Oh. My. God. This is absolutely gorgeous!!!

  4. Oh, such a beautiful shade! Remdinds me of Macs Drive me Wild. Are they similar?

  5. Lovely shade! I had a hard time making up my mind, but I eventually bought 747, Victorine.

  6. Amanda

    I bought this about a week ago and I adore it. The formula is outstanding (soooo creamy) and stays in place all day. The color is one I could wear all day and feel totally comfortable in. Unlike Christine, I have more of a neutral/cool skin tone, but still find this quite flattering. However, it wears more red on me.

  7. I love the color and also it is from DIOR so this is a thumbs up!

  8. Devangi

    The colour looks gorgeous! And I love that shirt on you :)

  9. Karyn

    YAY! I picked this up a couple of weeks ago in the hopes that it’d work on me but to be honest I was waiting to see if you reviewed it first before I opened it :D. Now I can, I think this will be my Thanksgiving dinner shade :)

  10. This must be mine! I love those golden shades!

  11. Chelsea

    What color are you wearing on your cheeks?

  12. Charito

    OooOO! I love the copper sheen! Very pretty.

  13. Kharina

    i must know please, what are you wearing for blush? its a drop dead gorgeous blush color!!!!

  14. I love this and planning on picking it up with my Boots advantage card points later this week. I’ve already got 3 of these lipsticks (Nocturne, Fantasque and Constellation) and they are all so lovely!

  15. virginiaisforluvrs

    Super pretty on you, but I think it would pull too orange on my pigmented lips!

  16. This looks more like a summer colour to me, and the name Belle de Nuit suggests to me a dark a sultry/vampy colour for nighttime, still a pretty colour though

  17. Jennifer

    I’ve actually been looking for a replacement for MAC’s Drive Me Wild lipstick- mine is on its last legs. It looks like this could be the one!

  18. Such a gorgeous shade! Looks so pretty on you Christine….

  19. Mandy

    Ooo, so pretty! I think I NEED this one!

  20. Kharina

    between this lippie and chanel mandarin rouge allure laque…
    which do u prefer better and why? i’m deciding which one to get with my gift cards :)

  21. Lark

    Nightclubs. The streets of Paris. Get all dressed up to go out- That’s what Belle de Nuit means. Goth was a thing in high school but Big Girls wear red lipstick and shimmering cocktail dresses after dark. Gorgeous beaded purses and evening shoes with rhinestones? Which are also in the stores. Who said Glamour had stopped at sundown? This is a color of the gestalt right now; Morange (bright orange) has been flying out of a lot of MACs which I only know because I got the last one in the city. Wear it over a full lip of red pencil and it’s close to this. It wishes! We all know the Dior is better lol.
    This is worth a stop at Dior. Gorgeous! And it will wear until next fall easily. I think this year will be Everything Goes.

  22. Aristocratique

    Belle de Nuit is Gorgeous! It really works with my olive/mediterranean skin tone, it’s also perfect with vernis “Merveille” (651), I love both of them, maybe because I love Dior make up!

  23. OMG this is gorgeus! Too bad there is Chanel Dupe 😉 Suits you really well.

  24. This one might be my favorite from the four. I think they released additional shades for the collection in Europe, though! => http://www.escentual.com/blog/2011/11/01/swatches-of-the-dior-les-rouges-or-christmas-collection-2011/

    We got Fantasque here in Australia, and I actually saw the rest of the shades listed on the US Dior website, but they’re all “momentarily unavailable”. Shame, because Cinderella looks like a very pretty shade! => http://beautyswatch.com/2011/11/dior-rouge-dior-lipstick-cinderella-451/
