DIOR Rouge Dior lipstick (786 Mysterious mauve)

 I was always terrified wearing a purple lipstick although purple is my favorite color.
But OH my, that instantly changed since the day I tried one myself.
I started with some lighter shades first (NYX Power) and slowly progress to this BEAUTY.
I have to admit, Dior never caught my eye since the packaging is so...boring?
I love the navy blue color but it can't even compare to YSL golden amazingness.
However I do really like the famous 3D ''moving'' CD imprint.
This was a kind gift from my sis for my birthday, she always knows how to spoil me!
The lipstick itself is really moisturizing like it claims (Voluptuous care) and has a slight shine on the lips.
It's buildable coverage and can be used like a stain or full on dark fuschia with purple and blue hues.
 The color looks quite scary in the tube but transfers a lot lighter. 
It has a ''granny lipstick'' smell and glides on the lips like a dream.
L to R: 1 swipe, buildable color
The color is just stunning and I have nothing like it in my collection
Dupes? I would dare to say it's quite close to NYX Black label Black orchid or Mac Violetta.
I also wore this lipstick in this post HERE.
Up to down: 1 application, multiple applications
All in all it's an amazing lipstick which I personally didn't even notice (shame on me).
I just wasn't into Dior make-up.
But after pointing it out (thank you sister) I fell in LOVE!

REPURCHASE: Yes
RATING: A+

What's your favorite lipstick? Will you wear purples in autumn/winter?
