Rouge Dior Couture Colour Voluptuous Care Lipstick 555 Rose Dolce Vita Review

The new Rouge Dior Couture lipsticks have my lips happy this fall and winter.  In fact, this particular lipstick has been on my lips each time I am not testing out something new for feature here on VanityRouge – I’ve been wearing it that much!  Smooth and pigmented, there are thirty-two timeless shades to choose from, which when faced with the task of “which one should I purchase” I admit seemed like an impossible feat!  However, there was just something that caught my eye about Rose Dolce Vita as I was shopping online at Sephora and decided to take the leap.  Today I’m sharing photos and a review of Rouge Dior 555, Rose Dolce Vita.Rouge-Dior-Rose-Dolce-Vita-(3b)

ROUGE DIOR Couture Colour Lipstick has a soft texture with smooth pigmentation that is easy to apply.  I am able to achieve full opacity with the shade Rose Dolce Vita with little effort.  The formula is softening to the lips, and while I would not say it is hydrating enough to make my lips feel like they have a treatment on them, my lips feel very soft and comfortable while wearing it.  The finish is said to be “satin” and while I find that to be true, it is a rather dimensional satin finish – nowhere near a frost, but there is dimension beyond just shine, which makes it very unique.  I am happy to find that although this is not a long-wearing lipstick – it typically lasts me four hours without eating or drinking – the color and the finish wears down evenly throughout the wear time.  I find this lipstick has a “classic” lipstick scent, that fades after application.

The shade Rose Dolce Vita in particular, is a unique warm rose color that at first glance that I was expecting to be more on the bronze/warm copper range.  I was very pleased that it is such a wearable shade, and I’ve found it pairs well with smokey bronzed and copper eyes (shown here) to taupes and rosey shades from the Naked 3 palette.  It is a very versatile “rose” shade that is unique in my collection, and I am very pleased with it.


Overall I am very impressed by the Rouge Dior Lipstick formula.  It is softening, easy to apply, and the pigmentation and unique finish makes this lipstick a definite must-try in my book!
