Dior Sunset (660) Rouge Dior Couture Lipstick
Dior Sunset (660) Rouge Dior Couture Lipstick

Dior Sunset (660) Rouge Dior Couture Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “fiery red.” It’s a medium, pink-coral with strong, warm red undertones and a soft, golden shimmer, plus a glossy, luminous finish. Estee Lauder Defiant Coral (P, $30.00) is a smidgen lighter. Too Faced Bon Bon (P, $21.00) is lighter, pinker. Givenchy Rose Dentelle (203) (P, $36.00) is darker, less shimmery. Chanel Pygmalion (LE, $34.00) is sheerer. MAC Lady at Play (P, $22.00) is warmer, less glossy. MAC Hibiscus (LE, $16.00) is a touch darker. Guerlain Rouge Sensuel (LE, $49.50) is darker, redder. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The look and feel of this shade is really where the luxury is; the consistency is incredibly lightweight, as it is creamy and glides on easily. It applies smoothly, evenly, and better yet, lips look soft, juicy, and lustrous. When a lipstick makes your lips look like they’re in better health–smoother, plumper, softer–you know the formula is a winner. Sunset had mostly opaque color coverage with a hint of translucency that kept it from reading too heavy. It wore well for four and a half hours, and it did leave behind a stain. The formula was nicely hydrating both during and after the color wore away, and I didn’t detect any scent or taste.

    Oooh, that’s nice!

    • It is! I was pleasantly surprised.

      • CKG

        And with Saks having free shipping, I just had to take the plunge… At this rate I’m becoming a coral queen lol
        I can’t wait to see how good the formula is as I’ve never used this brand.

        • Thank goodness they started doing free shipping. $13 was RIDICULOUS. I’ve ordered twice from Saks in the past two weeks, and they ship out really fast (like within hours of ordering), so that’s impressive.

          • CKG

            I was so relieved (though I’m supposed to stop shopping for beauty items until November lol).
            I like Saks but I preferred Nordstrom because of the free shipping and little free samples. I just love perfume :-)

            • I only have a credit card with Nordstrom, so that’s one of the reasons I prefer them! They also have a great return policy on cosmetics, and I swear Saks was less flexible with returns… I can’t remember, though (and they might have changed it).

            • CKG

              I wore it today.
              This formula is amazing and the colour is so lovely! So lightweight and lush.
              Are all the Rouge Diors like this? Not sure about the Rouge Dior/Rouge Dior Couture.

            • I don’t think I’ve tried too many from the newest reformulation, but from what I’ve tried, yes.

    do you like the new formula of the rouge dior lipsticks better than the old one? i like those, so i may have to check this out. the color is beautiful.

  3. stacey

    This is not my colour but Rouge Dior is my brand for lipsticks.
    Though you can get two Mac lipsticks for a price of this. And I love the red colours of Dolce and Gabbana. Nothing feels like a Rouge Dior lipstick. There is a faint rose scent. The lipstick feels like it is coming from past French chic. There is a gleam to the lipstick once applied and it makes my lips look luscious and young with a nice pout….without a need for botox. The lips do not look glossy. It is so so so creamy.

  4. What a gorgeous lipstick!

  5. Gorgeous. On you and in general. Wow!

  6. That is really pretty on you!

  7. I don’t usually go for these kind of colors but this is beautiful! So perfect for spring and summer!

  8. Beautiful! You’ve convinced me ;)

  9. I love this shade! And it looks great with your minimal makeup here, Christine.

  10. Hannah

    Is there anyway you could do your favorite cooler toned corals? I’m trying to find the perfect pinky coral!

  11. Thats a gorgeous shade! And formula sounds really nice too!:-)

  12. <3 I knew from the minute I saw the first picture that I would love this! What a pretty shade, it looks gorgeous on you.

  13. Avatar of Wwendy Wwendalynne

    Love this! The kind of ‘orange’ which isn’t really orange that I can wear.

    • I was expecting “fiery red” meaning orange-red, so I was pleasantly surprised it wasn’t (only because orange-red is quite readily available!).

  14. Such a gorgeous shade!

  15. Oh this goes straight on my wish list! Gorgeous shade in one of my favorite lipstick formulas! You wear it really well, Christine!

    It’s beautiful. Do you know if this is the North America version of souveraine (757)? That came out with the Trianon collection, but only in Europe. I know you probably don’t know about this particular shade, but have you found in general releases shades under different names in different markets?

    • I have no idea, sorry :( I don’t know how Dior does their naming. I think I usually see the number stay the same but the name change? But I can’t really remember any past instances.

      • Avatar of Alla Alla

        Oh well, it was definitely a long shot! Souveraine was this beautiful pinky-red coral, like a darker version of Mac’s Crosswires, that Dior released only in Europe and that I’ve been dreaming of for months (I don’t know why brands do that; why not let everyone have a chance to buy something?) I guess it will have to stay in my dreams because I haven’t seen it sold online. But this shade is lovely too, and I’ll definitely have to check it out next time I’m at a Dior counter!

  17. Gorgeous on you! Reminds me of a nice summer day picnic

  18. Whoa, that’s one fabulous lipstick! :-O I love that colour on you, and the texture and finish of the lipstick are really something. I might have to go and swatch…even though I’m sure it’s probably too orange for me…can’t hurt to find out, right? ;-)

    My husband and wallet will not be thanking you for this review as i now feel obliged to put it on my wish list and eventually buy it when it arrives in NZ. Gah!
    Theres no denying its a pretty colour and if its hydrating too – even better!

  20. Wow. This shade looks so pretty. I already have two of the dupes listed (Hibiscus and Rouge Sensuel), but this one looks just different enough to warrant having. I’m just hoping it pulls pink enough on me to work. Corals with too much orange look like wax lips on my face.

  21. Wow, that is gorgeous! Want!

  22. Stacey

    Hope you will test the dior sticks when it come out and see if you like it like dragon.

  23. That looks so nice on you!

    Off topic question, I just can’t find the info anywhere. Do you know when will the new lancome teint miracle air foundation will be available for sale in the US?

    That colour looks gorgeous on you! I want to buy it now even though I have the feeling that it won’t work on me.

  27. What a pretty shade! It suits you really well, Christine. :)

  29. Wow! It looks amazing on you, definitely warm tones suit you best! This lipstick looks like it’s part of you, at least in these photos.

  30. Emma M

    Christine, will you be reviewing Sunrise as part of the Transatlantique line too? I was about to place an order for Sunset based on these gorgeous swatches but figured I should wait and see how Sunrise looks too.

  31. Sora

    Absolutely gorgeous! I ended up ordering it after seeing your swatch! This is a perfect color for the summer and I actually like the slight shimmer.

  32. Maggie

    What color is your Parure De Lumiere foundation, Chrstine? It looks nice on you.

  33. Danielle

    Wow Christine, your lip freckle is gone but it still looks so lightweight and fresh. So pretty!

  34. Erica

    I don’t know if you remember the brand Delux Beauty, but I had an awesome lipstick by them, in the shade Clive, that seems similar to this. I bought it almost a decade ago, so I know it’s a long shot that you would have any recollection at all of that brand, and especially of that color, but on the off chance that you do, is this lipstick at all similar?

  35. Tammie

    Where can I find this specific color? All the shops you linked to don’t have Sunset 660 (and I’ve looked in person too) what is up with this color x_x It’s the only one I want and it’s apparently impossible to find…

  36. Penelope Economou

    Great lipstick and I’ve been looking for sth like that for a long time.
    Is it only available at saks? I live in London, UK.
    What part of a collection is it?
    Thanks
