Review: Christian Dior Rouge Dior Nude

From previous posts you may have noticed I favour lip balm and butter over lipstick. In fact, I haven't bought a lipstick in years! So, when I received an email from on my birthday offering £5 off a £15 spend, I knew exactly what I wanted having already browsed the website just a few days before.... Dior Rouge Nude Lipstick (£25) I just knew I had to have it!
With benefits of both a balm and a lipstick, and available in a number of shades, what's not to love?! I chose shade 169 - Grege as it's a neutral shade and will balance my favoured smokey eye look beautifully.
The product blurb is as follows:
'Imagine a new lipstick that behaves like a highlighting blush, thanks to radiant new shades and a new treatment balm formula.

From the first application, lips are perfectly hydrated, plumped and smoothed, thanks to a formula containing a high concentration of active treatment ingredients.'
(You can read a little more info on the CD website here) Here are a few pics for you to get an idea of how the product looks...
I've applied to bottom lip only for you to see how this shade appears on my colouring.
You can see how soft and silky it appears - the product is so smooth it glides effortlessly onto your lips. As the description suggests, it's a subtle shade  which enhances your natural pigment - nothing too heavy or overpowering.
With the range available, I'm so tempted to go for the Charnelle shade too but will need to get some more pennies together before taking the plunge.
Along with this purchase, the online based company are also offering a choice of three sample products with any £25 order while stocks last.
In order to meet the threshold and qualify for this, I also purchased the Leighton Denny Essential Remover (£5.50) as my supermarket brand has just run out. (I'll pop a quick review up on this asap too).
So for the cost of the lippy alone, I've bagged a gorgeous lipstick, some new nail varnish remover and three lovely samples as pictured below: Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale 'The Cream' (3ml), Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Color (0.25g) and Caudalie Premier Cru La Creme (2ml).
Not too bad a deal considering I was gonna get the lippy anyway eh?
So, in a Jerry Springer type final thought moment - remember, you only get the best deals if your in the know. Sign up to those emails and look out for money off codes. If you aren't lucky enough to get one like I did on this occasion, there's always cashback sites such as TopCashBack where you can earn money back on online purchases. Never rush in without checking you are getting the best deal/discount possible. All the pennies add up after all.
Much love,
