Dior Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.11 oz.) is supposed to be “incredibly long-wearing” with “12 hour” wear paired with an “ultra-comfortable” feel and “high-pigmentation.” First and foremost, no, it doesn’t last 12 hours, and most shades don’t come close–they last between four and six hours typically. There were a few, like deeper reds, that still had some product remaining after eight hours, but the lighter shades never made it through the meal. They have a very creamy consistency, balm-like, and within 30 to 45 seconds, they develop a slight cling, almost like a film, but it wasn’t actually clingy or uncomfortable–I could just tell that there was a texture change as it “set.” However, the “setting” of this formula just has that feeling, but the product would still transfer onto a glass or disappear during a meal.

Most of the shades were semi-opaque to opaque and applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging or dragging. Some shades were more smoothing than others, but most shades looked flattering over my natural lip texture. The formula was lightweight, comfortable, and lightly to moderately hydrating over time. They had a heavy, powdery, floral scent that was noticeable for the first half hour of wear, though I didn’t notice any taste.

If I understand the ratings properly, it looks like the products generally rate a lot higher if one factored out the logevity. (I think it should be considered since they made a big deal about it, however, it’s not a dealbreaker for me personally.) Do you have a rough idea how much the ratings would go up if you were to leave the longevity scores out of the equation?

I don’t know off-hand – I would have to go back and do the math for each shade – but I’m sure they would go up substantially since they lasted between 4-6 hours and the claim was 12 hours. For most shades, it was just the longevity that was the big “problem.”

Very relieved that my favorite shades landed near the top of the pile! Ultra Tough, Trouble and Pulse are the 3 I’m looking forward to trying on once I see these in-store. Especially Tough, as I have a feeling that this could be the greigey mauve that doesn’t clash with my golden olive complexion. I hope, anyway.
