Those who follow me ought to know by now that I love Spring makeup collections. The saccharine colours inspired by flowery blossoms are just too pretty to ignore. A couple of months ago I purchased Pink Tulip, which was released in Dior’s Garden Party Collection.

The packaging of the Rouge Dior lipsticks is glamourous without being over the top. The etched criss-crossing lines and the simple silver band are nice touches. The tube feels solid and a bit heavier than others.

The texture isn’t as soft as the Serum de Rouge range but it still applies quite smoothly. The formula on this colour is not particularly moisturising although creamy and it’s best to have flake-free lips before wearing it. I’d recommend a light layer of lipbalm before applying this lipstick if your lips are chapped.

Pink Tulip is a peachy-pink with slight coral undertones. On me, it looks a bit peachier than pink and is actually quite a bright little number. At first glance, I had expected something a bit more demure but I’m glad that it’s not as subdued as I had thought. The lipstick lasts around 3 hours with some coffee and drinks in between.

Lately, I find myself pairing Pink Tulip with Dior’s Rose Porcelaine eyeshadow quint quite often and they are such a pretty combination along with Dior’s Rosy Glow blush too. Together they offer a wearable, understated daytime look and since I’m at the office most of the day, it’s a no-brainer that I tend to prefer something more work-appropriate.

Rouge Dior in Pink Tulip retails at RM98 and may be limited edition but I still see this lovely lipstick available at a few Dior counters. If you already have peachy-pink lipsticks in your existing stash, you probably won’t need this one because it is not particularly unique. Still, it’s a very nice lipstick and something I see myself wearing often.

PS: My makeup in today’s post looks a little similar to yesterday’s because I was using the same eyeshadows and lipstick ;-)

Have you tried a lipstick from the Rouge Dior range? What’s your current Springtime lipstick?

That sounds like a lovely combination, Lily! I do like this lipstick a lot but I wished it was a bit more moisturising.

Thanks, Zee! It is a lovely Springtime lipstick but quite honestly, not too unique ;-) If you already have similar colours, it’s not a “must have”.
