Dior Holiday 2010: Technicolor Red

Dior Technicolor Red (873) Lipcolor ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a raspberry pink-red with soft fuchsia and ruby micro-shimmer. It’s nearly opaque on lips, and it’s a beautiful take on a more classic holiday red. If you tend to gravitate towards fuchsias over reds, Technicolor Red offers a happy medium of the two. The texture is delightfully creamy, applying evenly with little pressure and pigmented enough not to need a lot of layering. I was able to wear this shade for a solid five hours, and the Dior Addict Lipcolor formula is creamy and moisturizing. It is heavily rose-scented, so those with sensitivities to scent may want to try it before they buy it.

  • Product: 28/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: The pink in this makes it an excellent shade for cooler skin tones. The subtle coolness of the pink-red combo still makes it a shade that can work on warmer skin tones, too.

This color looks gorgeous on you! I have to try it on in-store now haha. I like that it’s not a full-on red, somehow I own lots of red lippies but I don’t wear them them much!

It’s beautifull! i’m gonna get it, it’s so rasberry red!
I have really light ivory skin and i that red lipstick is most of the time to much for me.
Would this be good because of the pink in it.

Oh, how i love Dior Addict lipstick. I was madly in love with them, until they discontinued my favourite shade :'(

This color reminds me alot of MAC’s Going Dutch from Euristocrats

I bought this online(without having seen it in person) several weeks ago and promptly returned it. I practically screamed, “This is not red. This is fuschia!” when I opened the tube. Thank goodness for good return policies!
