Dior Lady Diorific Lipstick
Lady’s Just a Little Less Diva
Dior Lady (039) Diorific Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is lightened coral-red with a natural sheen. And yes, it does look a lot like Dior Diva, which is just slightly darker. Edward Bess Midnight Bloom is redder. Guerlain Habit Rouge is darker. Guerlain Rouge Sensuel is sheerer and a smidgen lighter. MAC Cockney has golden shimmer. Chanel Cambon is a bit less warm.
This formula is supposed to be long-wearing with rich color payoff delivered in a single pass. Lady is incredibly pigmented and yields opaque color coverage in one pass, just as advertised. The texture is creamy enough to enable the lipstick to glide across lips without tugging or dragging, but it doesn’t feel heavy or slide over itself once it is applied. When I tried Lady, it lasted for eight hours, and my lips felt lightly hydrated even after that time period. Like other Dior lipsticks, this does have a light floral scent.
