Dior Marilyn Diorific Lipstick
Dior Marilyn Diorific Lipstick

Light Up the Night with Marilyn

Dior Marilyn (040) Diorific Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pinky-red with a subtle, natural sheen for its finish. MAC Love Goddess is much pinker, less red-based. MAC Charmed, I’m Sure is darker, redder. Guerlain Pour Troubler is pinker. NARS Dragon Girl is darker, cooler-toned. Guerlain L’Heure Bleue is darker, almost berry-ish. Giorgio Armani #406 isn’t as bright.

The texture of the Diorific range is really incredible; creamy enough not to tug or pull at the lips during application but not so creamy that it slips and slides around.  I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding of the color while I wore it for eight hours.  It feels comfortable, lightweight, and hydrating when worn.  There’s a light floral scent that I can detect in the tube, but I don’t notice it when it is on my lips.  The color payoff is exactly as marketed: super rich and saturated.

Rich in color, long-wearing, hydrating, and comfortable to wear are just four reasons why this lipstick formula is amazing!

    I admit, it’s starting to get difficult for me to tell the difference between these LE holiday collection Dior reds.

    The case reminds me of a weird gold dumbbell?

  2. Melissa

    Would you say this matches the Dior Marilyn nail polish?

  3. Emme

    I’ve liked all the lipsticks you’ve reviewed from this collection so far! I think I am in trouble!

  4. Maebeee

    Love this.

    Love that Dior has come out with a great formula!

    After the disappointment of not being able to get my hands on any of the lipsticks from the MAC Marilyn collection, these Dior holiday lipsticks seem like a really nice alternative, even if they are more expensive. I love how this looks!

    It’s a nice color, but I really can’t stand the packaging of these. I want to say what I think it looks like but I’m afraid it’s too vulgar! haha

  8. The packaging is so cute, looks like a tiny dumbbell :)

  9. Kristanna

    I have had this one for a long time. Its always beautiful on. Never regret buying this red.

  10. I’ll say it again, the packaging looks like a sex toy… lol :-) The shade of the lipstick looks gorgeous though!

  11. helen

    This colour lights up your face beautifully, Christine.

  12. Melissa Clendenin

    These are all beautiful, but I can’t have all 4. So, if you were going to buy just one, which one? I’m fairly pale, I guess NC/NW20 (read neutral) with medium brown hair. I think I’m leaning towards Diorling – it would be perfect for the holidays.

    I think I prefer Lady to Marilyn, but this is gorgeous on you. I may have to break down and get Lady.

  14. I got this one!!!!! Yeh!!!! Yes, it cost more than MAC Marilyn, but it is so so pretty and you get a tad more per each tube.. They all look the same on the web….but they are not.

  15. Kiki

    What a boring and generic red. Not worth that much at all!!!

  16. sinnamon

    The packaging of this lipstick looks like a vibrator i have.

  17. It’s lovely!
    (anything “Marilyn-like” is :-)

  18. Patrice

    I gave in and purchased this last night. I’m very pleased with how it looks. It really puts me in a holiday mood, haha.

  19. Avatar of Amy Amy

    I can’t help but think the packaging looks like a gold-played shake weight o.o

  20. Stephanie

    I am confused. You are reviewing Dior Marilyn, but in the “what makeup are you wearing section” you list Chanel Pimpante. Which lipstick is featured in the photos?

  21. Jeanette Havmand Andersen

    I´ve got this lipstick, however I´d like to try Nars jungle red as well, unfortunately, Nars is not available in my country. How similar / different are they rom each other?
    Im looking for a raspberry-redish lipstick, and have a yellowish skin undertone.

    BTW, LOVE ur blog and especially your reviews.
