Dior Tailored Mauve Ultra Gloss

Lips Fit for the Sugarplum Fairy

Dior Tailored Mauve (692) Ultra Gloss ($26.50 for 0.21 oz.) is a semi-sheer plum-tinged pink with white and pink microshimmer. It gives my lips a nice pink tinge, but it also looks a little plummy but not mauve or deep plum at all–very wearable and still in season for fall. It also has enough color to be worn alone or layered over one of fall’s vampier lipsticks.

I like the Ultra Gloss for its moisturizing, non-sticky formula and the lovely way the shimmer reflects, but I do wish it were more long-wearing than just under two hours. The formula is designed to be sheer, so don’t go in expecting rich, opaque color–some of the darker shades are, inevitably, more pigmented than the lighter shades, but I’ve found that the majority shades are semi-sheer but not indistinguishable from each other–which is nice.

I’ve done numerous reviews on Dior’s Ultra Gloss, should you want to explore other shades!

RECOMMENDATION: If love sheer, non-sticky lipgloss, Dior Ultra Gloss is exactly that. And if you donโ€™t mind reapplying every two hours or so, I think youโ€™d really like these.

    Lovely color! Question.. I’m a newcomer here ๐Ÿ˜‰ So maybe it’s asked you before: Have you bleached your teeth? You see, I think they’re beautiful white! ๐Ÿ˜€ (Excuse me for my English when it’s wrong, I’m from Holland and I’m just on secondary school)

    I was wondering since plum/mauves are a fall e/s trend…What MAC ones could I use for that trend? I have blackberry, trax, cranberry, sketch… I want the Dior Mistymauve e/s quint but have not that money to spend.
    Thanks Christine!

    I have 3 or 4 of these already – and it looks like I’m gonna have to pick this one up too! Pretty!

  14. Nicole

    I NEED THIS!! :p

    That is really pretty, and unfortunately (because I’m on a forced no-buy for several months) it is a very “me” kind of colour — hopefully it will still be around when I can afford to buy cosmetics again!

  16. Evelyn

    Well darn it, my wallet’s going to start crying! But it’s so pretty.

    I am surprised with how this product looks in the tube v. on lips! It looks great on you but I’m not sure how it would look on me. Will have to test because I am definitely intrigued!

    DIOR makes the best glosses I think, SHU UEMURA might only be a lil’ better.
    This one looks great, I want it! (I surely have at least 2 similiar colours, DIOR also).
    SOme year ago the glosses had a slight smell of perfume, that tokk it away. A pity, I like the DIOR smell of lipsticks a lot.

  19. Valerie

    Seems more pink on the lips, or is it just me?

  20. Jakara

    This is such a pretty color. I was just at the Dior counter tonight. I try to purchse my Dior lipglosses at a discount. I might have to pay regular price for this one if it looks good on me.

  21. sara:)

    this lipgloss looks so pretty on you :)

    Hey Christine!

    Your link does not show the product in the nordstrom site and when I contacted them they didn’t know what I was talking about? Lol… do you know if other places have this and is it LE?
