Rouge Dior: Flamboyant Blazing Red #638 & Zinnia Red #743


I sometimes feel as if I’m buying the same color of red/burgundy/wine lipstick over and over. I will always buy colors like that because I think they work for me, but lately I’ve been looking for something a little different. I’ve been on the hunt for a nice coral/orangeish/peachy color. Basically something not red, burgundy or wine colored. 

I ended up at the Dior counter where I picked up these two colors. They have great customer service, and I love those quilted navy lipstick cases.

Dior Flamboyant Blazing Red #638

First off I know it’s a red but in my mind at least I think I see a little hint of orange. 

Rouge Zinnia Red #743

Yes, I am quite aware that Zinnia is not an orangeish/coral/peachy type of color. What happened was I tried it, I liked it and I bought it *insert shrug here*.

Both colors have a slightly creamy consistency and were easy to apply. Lasting time was about 3-4 hours with no food.  They also have a slight perfumed scent which I know some people don’t care for in a lipstick. I didn’t find it overpowering but it is noticeable.

So my hunt for that nice coral/orangeish/peachy shade continues. I’m open to any suggestions, and will keep you posted.

    lol, I'm the same way, all my lipsticks are pretty much the same shade of red. I experiment a little bit more with my glosses. I have tried to go out of the box and have some nude lippies, but I usually feel a lil naked when I where them:(I should try a Dior lipstick, you make them look good.

    Nice colors; I should get more adventurous with my make-up too. I have been doing the same thing for a long time.
