Dior Golden (065) Diorific Lipstick

Dior Golden (065) Diorific Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium gold with a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. It’s designed as a layering shade in the brand’s holiday collection. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on fairly evenly. I liked that there was enough coverage (and the shimmer distributed well) that it could be worn on its own, while still working as a shade to layer over or under other lip colors. The texture was thin, smooth, and comfortable to wear. It lasted for three hours on its own, and I didn’t have any issues with the shimmer migrating beyond my lips. The formula has a heavy floral scent to it. MAC Live Long and Prosper (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty David (DC, $36.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Metalwork (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). MAC All I Want (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC You've Got It (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Dior Splendor (950) Diorific Matte Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. The color payoff was good, not quite opaque but nearly there. The texture felt velvety, not too thick or too thin but had substance to it, and it glided across the lips without tugging and yielded smooth, even coverage. It is actually designed to be less opaque than the traditional Diorific range, so it seems to be on the mark there, though it is really more of a satin finish than a “powdery matte” finish. The color wore well for seven hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating. The formula has a heavy floral scent to it. MAC Perfect Score (LE, $19.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Tarte Sandals (LE, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Rouge Tentation (169) (P, $45.00) is darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek Elegant (P, $15.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Coloured Raine Cherry Blossom (P, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Dior Ultra Shock (851) (P, $37.00) is less shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Bite Beauty Virgo (LE, $26.00) is glossier (95% similar). Burberry Ruby (434) (P, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Red Desert (97) (P, $14.00) is less glossy (90% similar). MAC Mulling Spices (DC, $21.00) is cooler, glossier (95% similar). Burberry Military Red (No. 429) (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (95% similar). NARS Starwoman (P, $26.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar).

Hi Christine,
When I am clicking on Burberry military red from the dupe list, I’m unable to read the full review. Its just showing the review summary. Can you please send me the link of the same?

Oh Dior, I can’t look at your lipsticks without recalling my late father suggesting (at some point in my teens or early 20s) the packaging looked like something I might own for (ahem) private use when I am older…

I did not expect that I would like the gold one but it looks really pretty. Reminds me of one of the new permanent mac lipsticks. Cannot recall the name at this moment but I am sure it is in the dupe list.

I found the dupe I was thinking of concerning the gold Lipstick. It is mac no interruptions
Is it in the dupe list ? I don’t think it is or habe I overseen it?

I do love a good French red! I don’t have any dupes for this, funnily enough…lol! I have LLAP so I’m covered for the light gold lipstick ?.

Splendor is so beautiful. It’s a red & you wear reds very well.

I would love to buy a few of these, but I had issues with one of the Diorific lippies I bought a couple years ago. I don’t recall it being scent related though, I think I was unhappy with the longevity of the lipstick.

Does the scent linger? If it dissipates, how long does it take to do so?

Are you going to or have you reviewed the liquid lipsticks that Dior has for the holidays? I’m quite curious
about the formula, wear time, fragerence, etc.

Additionally, do the new Dior lipsticks have the floral or fragerence in them? I’m quite intrigued in that line of lipsticks.

I’m open to any & all comments from others in regards to my questions.

Thank you!
