Dior Minuit Diorific Lipstick
Dior Minuit Diorific Lipstick

Dior Minuit Diorific Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “sparkling cool red.” It’s a lightened, medium red with cool, blue undertones and a pink tinge, along with a soft, metallic shimmer. The shimmer is faint, so it has more of an overall effect of giving it a frosted sheen than over-the-top shimmer. MAC Prepare for Pleasure (LE, $15.00) is redder. MAC Relentlessly Red (P, $15.00) is more matte. NARS Luxembourg (P, $25.00) is slightly redder. MAC Love Goddess (LE, $15.00) is a touch pinker. Dior Marilyn (LE, $36.00) is quite similar–just a little darker/redder. See comparison swatches.

The Diorific formula is lightly creamy, richly pigmented, and comfortable to wear. The texture is creamy enough that it won’t pull or drag on the lips, but it stays put and doesn’t bleed or feather outside the natural lip line. Minuit is long-wearing, topping in at seven hours of wear, plus it leaves behind a residual reddish stain. It’s somewhat hydrating while worn, and it’s a really nice formula overall. It is lightly floral scented but has no discernible taste. I wish it wasn’t so close to last year’s holiday release Marilyn, though!

  1. Gaaah Christine, giving it an A+ doesn’t really help my wallet! ^^
    I tried this on in the store and fell in love with it.

    It does look different on us warmer types than on the model from the promo image, right?
    Still, it’s one of those colours that makes my heart beats just a bit faster, so gorgeous!

  2. Nothing more to say, just: beautiful!!!!

  3. Gorgeous shade, but the packaging is even more amazing!

  4. Omggggggg

    this looks beautiful on you. i’m so glad i ordered it. it should be here today…yay! i did get any of the lipsticks last year, so i’m glad there was a color that i don’t already have a ton of dupes for (warm reds, i’m looking at you).

    • Yay! Glad this one is unique to your stash, Beka! The Diorific formula is really good – hope you love it!

      • Beka

        I just had a chance to put it on! I love it! (Although it has a weird scent-hopefully that will wear off). I managed to only get two lipsticks from the sephora sale…I got mostly skincare and gifts…but I did buy the Chanel charming palette. I snagged the last one at my Nordstrom. It’s so beautiful!

        • YAY! It has a floral (rose?) scent to it that I’m not keen on (but I don’t like most floral scents, particularly in lipsticks). You might leave the cap off for a couple hours – that usually helps tamp down the scent. I think placing it near a bowl of vinegar can work, too.

          • Beka

            Thanks for the tip. I left the cap off and the smell is gone! Now I can love it. It seemed like a “cheap” scent to me. I was something I might expect in a $3 lipstick not a $36 one. I’m glad there was an easy fix.

    Just amazing color…and perfect with your carnation !

  7. I love this brightened pinky red…beyoootiful!

  8. Anna

    OMG it looks soooo lovely on you. Shame I can afford to buy only one. Will you have other shades swatches? Thank you :)

  9. this is so beautiful! the color, the packaging, ahhhh.

  10. Veronica

    Gorgeous. :) I love these medium cool reds, but they never stay red on my complexion – they wind up pulling fuschia!

  11. AngieButterfly

    That’s gorgeous and looks amazing on you. I think I want it.

  12. pixxie

    Lovely color on you christine.. btw Christine, can you please do a review of EM Michelle Phan comestics especially the lip colors and eyeshadow palettes?? I’m sure many of us would be happy to see you review the collection. thank you

  13. Damn, I bought it, thinking it’s cooler/more shimmery than Marilyn (which I own). Ah well, pretties are pretties. 😛

    I have heard nothing but good things about the Diorific lipstick formula. I had thought it was a limited edition formula for some reason, but it looks permanent on the Dior website – I’ll have to go check out a counter some time.

    I have this shade and it is definitely fuchsia on me. Its funny as some of the promotional material describes is as fuchsia as well. It looks like the lipstick on the ad campaign photos on me, which I like. Its my first fuchsia and I’ve gotten complements on it already! I have a neutral cool undertone to my skin though, so it will appear more pink. I also have MAC Love Goddess, which is definitely a pinky red on me, but this is fuchsia.

    Wow, this is gorgeous! Dior has been releasing some lovely products lately :)

  19. Nawi

    Thanks for the great review I totally agree with the A+! I do not agree with you that is looks alot like Marilyn, Marilyn is much redder. At least mine is.
