Dior Montaigne Matte & Superstitious Matte Rouge Diors

Dior Montaigne Matte (207) Rouge Dior Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium gray with neutral-to-cool undertones paired with a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied decently, but it could have been more even and flattering on the lips, as some of the color pulled into lip lines. The texture was smooth, velvety–creamy without being too emollient–and didn’t tug on the lips when applied from the tube. It lasted for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. I do, however, love seeing Dior include non-traditional colors in their permanent range. MAC Night Mint (LE, $18.50) is warmer, glossier (85% similar). NYX Black Sesame (P, $6.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Smoke (P, $18.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Superstitious Matte (789) Rouge Dior Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark purple with strong, warm pink undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that wasn’t too thin or too thick and was easy to glide across the lips. The finish was more flattering than Montaigne Matte, but it took about an hour before it had more of a matte finish. On me, this shade lasted for five and a half hours and left a stain behind, and it was just a touch hydrating overall. Too Faced Unicorn (P, $21.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Dose of Colors Dark Secret (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Cloud9 (LE, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Maybelline Vibrant Violet (P, $7.99) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Stylist's Tip (LE, $18.50) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D L.U.V. (P, $20.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Kat Von D LUV (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Grind (LE, $5.50) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Zipper (P, $6.50) is darker, more muted, less glossy (90% similar). Anastasia Vintage (P, $20.00) is less glossy (95% similar). MAC Heroine (P, $18.50) is lighter (95% similar). Milani I Am Cool (P, $6.99) is lighter (85% similar). Sephora Rock & Purple (56) (P, $14.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Kat Von D Susperia (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Colour Pop Lychee (LE, $6.50) is lighter, brighter, less glossy (85% similar). Anastasia #9 (Vol. 1) (PiP, ) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Anastasia Rage (P, $18.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Overview

Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to “highly pigmented” with “lasting comfort” and no “colour streaking” for 16 hours. It’s a solid lipstick formula–fairly pigmented, applies without tugging, wears four to six hours, and is comfortable to wear, but it just is nowhere near 16-hour wear. The satin shades are more hydrating, while the mattes are slightly hydrating to non-drying. The formula has a floral scent but no discernible taste to me. The formula has a strong, floral scent in the tube, and I don’t really notice the scent once it’s on the lips.

Thanks for your review! It seems like Dior is flailing at non-traditional colors. Their pastel colors were terrifying. All I can look at though is your GORGEOUS eye look. Mind sharing? 🙂

You can find Christine’s makeup info in the post 🙂 Ctrl+f “makeup look” and you’ll find it. In this case I copied it for you. Lots of UD Vintage for the lovely eyes:

It’s too bad they made that ridiculous 16 hr claim, or these would’ve scored much higher. I swatched Superstitious in store, and it’s really pretty, but I have a dupe, so will skip, and don’t like any floral scent either. But I’m really glad to see Dior come out with bold, non-traditional colors.

The gray is not for me, but I appreciate the fact that a very classic department store brand like Dior tries to extend their lipstick range beyond traditional shades. Have you reviewed the deep blue one? I can’t keep track with all the lipstick launches, haha!

These lipsticks are quite disappointing! Unconventional lip colors are great, but Dior doesn’t seem to be executing them very well. Your eye look, on the other hand, is beautiful!

Having dupes for the purple shade and definitely not going to be wearing a pale gray lipstick anytime in this lifetime, easy pass. Especially since these only scored C’s.

You could tell before the swatches that they were uh-oh. But you’re right. They’re trying. Too bad the gray isn’t better. The blue and green lean are neat. Today’s lips make me glad I have no sense of smell. But scented products are a bad policy, even when you don’t smell them. And the irritancy factor can crank up at any time. Wish they’d all stop. The houses that started with scent after fashion appear to be the worst offenders.

I think it’s really cool Dior made a grey lipstick. Pity it’s not really very good, but it’s not really bad either. I don’t think grey would suit me, but I like the idea.
Superstition is very pretty and I have dupes.
I also love they eye look!

How strange — a cool grey lipstick that I don’t like very much! I think Montaigne Matte is just too light for me, besides looking a bit uneven and a little too matte for my tastes. I like Superstitious Matte a bit better, maybe because it looks a bit less matte, lol!

Oh my. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything uglier (in terms of makeup, that is) than that matte, pale grey lip 🙁 I’m all for *edgy* and *new* but that one missed the mark, Dior. Your eye look saved the day on that face, Christine!

I tried the violet one and it’s gorgeous. It’s on my to buy list.
It pulls darker on me, maybe because i’m about an NC 20 and Christine is NC 25, weird how color changes so much with such a small difference in skintone

Hey! I also guess that possible dupe to 789 could be Urban Decay Bittersweet ( or I just didn’t notice it on the list?). Also, in side-by-side list I saw that Colourpop’s Zipper has “C”, while Dior 789 has “C-” but as I see from the swatch, Zipper looks really uneven and dry, at the same time, Dior looks really nice and opaque.

Products are rated based on the claims the brand makes – for example, Dior lists 16 hour wear, which is where almost all of them stumbled!
