Dior Holiday 2016: Diorific lipstick in 065 Golden and 560 Ravissement (Mat) review

MORE DIOR! The Dior Holiday 2016 collection brings back one of my fave lipstick package designs, what I call the golden lightbulb.

Dior Holiday 2016 Splendor 065 Golden lipstick

This year, there are four matte (velvet mat) shades and one shimmer. The packaging is identical to last year’s release but the shades are different.

First up is 065 Golden, a creamy semi-satin with a gold shimmer finish.

Stunning, right? Although this reminds me a lot of MAC’s Rococo Gold lipstick, this has a smoother finish.  This leaves more of a metallic sheen and not a shimmer glitter effect. It’s also quite hydrating!

The gold shimmer is fairly multi-faceted with some warmer tones mixed with lighter almost white gold reflects. You can wear this on its own, although I suggest using it as a topper.

The other shade I received was 560 Ravissement, a neutral rose pink with a Velvet Mat finish.

Although this is said to be a Velvet Mat, the finish is a bit creamier than the other Velvet Mats I have from last year’s run. I’ll have to try the other shades to see if this one is an anomaly.

This pink is not too bright, not too light, just a very well-balanced pink that almost leans towards the cool side. The formula is creamy and has an almost gel-like feel to me. This dries down semi-matte.

Shown above with a swipe of 065 Golden, it really just warms it up and adds a touch of metallic.

Swatches above are 2x density. These are both very impressive as far as pigmentation, wear time and comfort!

Wearing both shades mixed, paired with the Dior Precious Embroidery Eyeshadow palette (review here).
