Dior Lipstick in Rose Altesse

I'm sure you've probably noticed but I don't really tend to review many, if any, lipsticks on this blog of mine. It's not some great overlooking, it's the simple fact that lipstick intimidates me. For anyone that knows me in real life they'd probably be quite shocked at that statement. Wearing lipstick is something that I really do want to feel confident about, and I think that baby steps is probably the best way to go with this. Hence this beautiful pink shade, Rose Altesse by Dior that is the classic, my lips but better (but also with a slight hint of shimmer).

It's a shade that looks so subtle on the lips, but it doesn't look like you're sporting a bare lip. Not only this but it doesn't zap my lips of all it's moisture, in fact it feels rather comfortable on. Another great benefit of is it's hard to notice if your application isn't great (mine is rather shoddy, but you can't say a lot when you rarely wear lipstick!). I think, if like me, you have no idea where to start in the lipstick world and all those bright bold shades intimidate you, then this is a damn good place to start! 

If you have any recommendations for any lip products that will help ease me into the lipstick world, then I'm all ears, so drop those shade names in the comments below!

  1. I love the shimmer in this shade! I'd recommend getting sheer nudes and maybe balmy lipsticks so that the colour is really sheer and subtle.

  4. Ooh that looks so lovely. Lipstick intimidated me for THE longest time, but I'd always wanted to wear it, so I started with sheer lip butters & things of the like to ease into it, and now I'm super into dark reds and plums. It gets much less intimidating the more you do it!! :)

  7. Hi Jodie, I used to feel the same way about lipsticks but now I can't get enough! If you want something sheer and not too bold, the Revlon lip butters are really soft and sheer. Also the Bourjois Aqua laques look gorgeous and light too :)

  8. I know exactly what you mean about lipstick! I am more comfortable wearing an entire face of makeup and leaving my lips bare then the other way around.

    What I love to do is apply a pink or mauve lipstick on to my finger, then pat it onto my lips. This creates a natural looking stain that gives your lips color, but leaves out the super defined lipstick look :)

  9. Wearing bright and bold lipstick has always scared me but neutral colours are easier to wear and they make you look so put together.

    Namaste..!!

  10. I'm not a big wearer of bright lipsticks either so I know exactly where you're coming from. My favourite my lips but better lipstick is KIKO's Velvet Mat in Pink Carnation, it's such a beautiful beautiful shade with a gorgeous formula! x

Thank you so much for commenting on this little blog of mine. I read every single one and I appreciate your kind words more than I can say. I do try to reply but it's something I'm terrible at (I'm bad at texting in particular), so if you're after a swifter reply then try me over at my Twitter @jodieloue_ where I'm actually pretty good at replying.
