Dior Raspberry Serum (760) Serum de Rouge

Dior #760 Serum de Rouge

I originally reviewed Serum de Rouge here, but in summary, these feel really nice on lips but do require frequent reapplication in my experience.  Normally, reapplication would not be an issue, but you only get 0.07 oz. (as compared to the 0.12 oz. average in many lipsticks).  In addition to the lesser quantity, the creamy quality of these makes it easy to over-apply the product (and thus use more faster than you need to!).

I’ve only tried two shades, but so far, they’re both very universal and wearable.  They were both pigmented and applied beautifully.  I love the formula but wish you either got more or these lasted longer on my lips!

Recommendation:  If you don’t love lipstick and prefer gloss, I think you’ll like Dior’s Serum de Rouge–it has that glossy feel but the color payoff of a lipstick.

Shootin’ the Breeze on a Monday in May

Benefit Benetint

How’s your  Monday treating you?

I’m off to spend the next several hours of my life taking my exam for Evidence, which will certainly be my hardest exam (it’s 100% memorization; my other two are open book/notes, so at least I’ve got a crutch!). To help me not fall entirely into a pit of despair over exams, I’m focusing on some of the products I can’t wait to review… (and the fact that after May 10th at 5PM, law school will be over until August!)

What are your goals for the week? I’m really trying hard to stay on task and focus on studying so I can get through my finals in one piece!  I always find Spring finals so much harder to get into gear for–probably has to do with the gorgeous weather…
