Dior’s new lipstick formula Rouge Dior Haute Couleur includes Daisy Plum #976 ($30), a dark vamp color packed with color, dimension and shine. This is color is capable of commanding attention on the red carpet, taking charge of a boardroom or grabbing attention where ever it is worn. Like Pink Cocotte, reviewed here, Dior’s Daisy Plum is packaged in a sleek case with Dior’s iconic quilting:
Here is a close up of this very dramatic color:
Although this look a bit bronze in the tube, it applies as a deep cool red. This is a standout color, a combination of red and blue in a very deep, jewel like tone. Here it is on Liz without any lipliner or base, who is also wearing Chanel Cameo Intensity 1.0, roughly comparable to MAC NC15:
Liz is not wearing anything except for Dior Daisy Plum here–no gloss topping, no base, no liner, just the lipstick applied directly from the tube. Here is the final effect:
Amazing texture with this formula. And, by the way, who says pale warm girls can’t wear cool deep color?
Given that my Pink Cocotte broke when I attempted arm-swatching, I am going to refrain from offering comparison swatches of this shade. My heart couldn’t stand another broken lipstick today.
