Please excuse the cray-cray clip in these photos. I’m about to jump on a video call, and my stray hairs needed all the help I could possibly need. Laugh out loud!
I finally got my paws on a tube Dior 999 Lipstick – Was lusting after it for weeks. This long-wearing formula is an intensely pigmented matte red with a touch of orange.
I just started playing with it and quickly figured out a few things:
- Use a thin layer! This is one of those long-wearing formulas with a very specific sweet spot; Apply too much, and it will come off in patches.
- If you are applying straight from the pill then go slowly. Or, use a lip liner to help define the edges first. I dunno, maybe it’s the slant or shape of the lipstick bullet, but there’s something about it that makes it hard for me to go there and damn it.
- It will not go in vain. Dior isn’t kidding! This stuff lasts forever.
It’s been a minute since I’ve been wearing Dior lipstick and now I remember why I love it. I think I’m going to grab a bright pink or coral next one!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
PS Happy Tuesday!
