Ultra Light (000)

Dior Ultra Light (000) Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a pale white with cool undertones and a satin finish. The brand says that this shade can be worn alone for a more dramatic look but can also be used to lighten other shades. It had the same, balm-like texture as other shades,, so it felt smooth, lightly creamy, and had some slip as it glided across my lips. With the lightness of the shade, though, the balminess made it harder to apply evenly and showed slight product that sank into my deeper lip lines. I could see lightly applying this to the center of the lips and gently blending out with fingertips to lighten one’s natural lip color a bit in addition to mixing it with other shades. It had good pigmentation that lasted well for four hours (but nowhere near the 12 hours claimed!), and the formula felt hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.11 oz. - $336.36 Per Ounce

The formula 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.

Ultra Night (111)

Dior Ultra Night (111) Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a deep black with a cool, plummy base and a satin finish. This shade is also marketed as a standalone shade as well as to be used to darken other shades in the range. It had good color coerage that applied fairly evenly, but I could tell that it wasn’t quite opaque nor totally even along the center of my lips where it didn’t adhere as well. The texture was lightweight, creamy and balm-like without being too slippery or thick on my lips. The texture seemed to “set” slightly and felt clingier but not actually clingy. It wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Ultra Night reminds me of the days 10 years ago, when black lipstick was hard to find…NYX had a black shade in their classic round lipstick, goth/punk-catered brands (Manic Panic, Medusa’s Makeup) of course had them, and Fantasy Makers around Halloween. You could get black Lipmix if you were a MAC Pro member. Then black lips were on the runway for fall/winter, so YSL released a black gloss [supposedly] seen in their show and Lancôme made coordinating Piha Red polish and lipstick, and shimmery Piha Black polish and gloss. A year later, MAC had the Style Black collection; I remember saving and budgeting my allowance for three items. Ah, good times. Now, there are more ways to wear black lips than ever! But I still have a lingering longing for Piha Black 🙂

While I wouldn’t call either one *horrible*, I also wouldn’t be inclined to call them $37 worthy, either. Because I will resort to using a good lip liner to deepen up parts of my lips for an ombre look, I don’t need an overpriced, not quite long lasting lipstick for the job!

I don’t get the appeal of white lipstick, other than as a mixing color. On its own, I don’t find it flattering. Pretty pathetic performance on both of these products.

The Ultra Light is so old school. Back in the late 50’s white lipstick was ubiquitous whether flat or pearlized. It was used to lighter the vibrant and deep reds and pinks that were in style throughout the 50’s. It indicated a shift towards the pale lips of the 60’s which were worn by the Mod beauties of that era.
