Tangerine Dream? A Lipcote Lipstick Review

November 4, 2015


Brand Name: Dior Diorific High Fashion Lipstick

Colour: CanCan Orange

Price: £21.50

Lipcote Rating: 4.7 / 5

Dior’s cosmetics offering is made up of luxurious products with sophisticated science behind them. These ‘High Fashion’ lipsticks have an extra edge, coming from a brand that is primarily known for its couture, Parisian fashion.

CanCan Orange is a true, punchy tangerine. The texture is rich, smooth and highly pigmented, and it’s pleasantly comfortable to apply and wear. But be warned; this shade is not for the colour-shy! Whilst red is a bold but easy-to-wear classic, fuchsia pink is playful and girly, and plum shades are vampy and chic, orange is rarely seen off the fashion catwalks. This doesn’t mean it’s not a great colour to play with – it just takes a bit more confidence to wear. One trick is to go easy on the bronzer or blusher; just as a red will emphasize any red tones in your skin, this lippie will do the same with orange, so an orange toned bronzer with tangerine lipstick is a big no-no! Skin should be flawless and bright, and black mascara will stop you from looking washed out. A great feature to pull-out alongside orange lips are eyebrows – wear them as thick and bold as you can go to look like you’ve just stepped off the plane from Paris Fashion Week!

This is a great lipstick, and formula-wise it’s a winner. The packaging is classy, but bling-tastic, as you’d expect from Dior – a gold dumbbell shaped tube with navy stripes around the length. It’s a great addition to our collection, although it will be saved for our most fashionable, good-skin days!

Look out for it in this month’s Lucky Lipcote Draw!

Love, Lipcote x
