I am literally eating my words as I write this post. If you haven't seen my previous post about Dior Fluid Stick in Rose Tricheuse I gave it a 3- lipsticks. So why in the world am I still buying these (hides face). Honestly I don't have an answer, only that I'm a crazy makeup addict and sometimes there isn't a reason for anything.
I decided that I wanted to buy these at Changi DFS so that I would not feel the sting of a full priced makeup item. I got Wonderland at Changi but Rieuse was out of stock. I managed to find it at the Phuket airport.
Here is Rieuse. It is not a nude on me but looks natural.
My guilty pleasures all together.
Doesn't Wonderland and Rose Tricheuse look a tad similar. I find arm swatches of many of the bright shades quite similar but when translated on my lips they look different enough to justify buying them. I think that's why I always have such a hard time choosing a colour for myself. I also hate it that the numbering is so small and hard to see. I am afraid I would bring home the same fluid stick.
The trick to wearing these is not to use a too slick lip balm on your lips before wearing a fluid stck. I wipe my lip balm off and colour in a matching lip pencil. That ensures that it holds the fluid stick. I can't just apply these without any prep. They will slide and look patchy if I don't prep. Between Wonderland and Rieuse, I prefer Wonderland. It applies better for me. Rieuse can appear patchy and sometimes it does not cover my entire lips.
You now what, I am willing to put up with the extra work because I have come to love the glossy yet pigmented look.
So what are your favourite shades?
