Please excuse the cray-cray clips in these pictures. I’m about to jump on a video call, and my stray hairs needed all the help they could get. LOL!
I finally got my paws on a tube of Dior 999 Lipstick — been lusting after it for weeks. It’s an intensely pigmented matte red with a touch of orange in a long-wearing formula.
I’ve just started playing with it and quickly figured out a few things:
- Use a thin layer! It’s one of those long-wearing formulas with a very specific sweet spot; apply too much, and it will lift off in patches.
- Go slowly if you’re applying straight from the bullet. Or, use a lip liner to help define the edges first. I dunno, maybe it’s the slant or the thinner size of the lipstick bullet, but there’s something about it that makes it hard for me to just go in there and do the damn thing.
- It won’t wear off for nothing. Dior is not kidding! This stuff stays on forever.
It’s been a minute since I’ve worn a Dior lipstick, and I can remember why I like it. I think I’m going to grab a bright pink or coral next!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Happy Wednesday!
