Dior Serum De Rouge Lipstick - Mocha Serum (910)

Rouge Dior Serum De Rouge in Mocha Serum (910) - Reviews/Swatches

A luxurious lip treatment with SPF 20 and with 10 times more concentrated skincare ingredients, this provides moisture, volume and smoothing benefits for your lips, immediately upon application, and day after days.

I picked this up a couple of months back, after having gone back and forth about whether or not to buy this - the very expensive pricetag versus the supermoisturizing feel - it was a tough decision.  I hadn't tried anything from Dior, so I finally caved into the temptation and bought it.

The lipstick comes packaged in a sleek long tube decorated by a crisscross pattern which for some reason reminds me of bamboos.  It is the typical Dior pattern seen in their eyeshadow palettes and their gorgeous blushes.  To use, take the cap off and twist the end of the tube to get the product out.

Mocha Serum (910) is a reddish-pink with a hint of brown to it.  I had tried a couple of lipsticks already on my lips and add to it the store lighting, and what I thought it was when I bought and what it turned out to be under normal light..well...lesson learnt, shall we say?  With a name like Mocha, I should have known there would be some brown to it!  While I like the shade, I don't think it's the best shade for my skin colour.  My natural lip colour is dark, and this looks a bit reddish brown on my lips.  Not one of my favorite colours, but I do think it's a very autumn colour.

Quite aptly named serum, this is not your ordinary lipstick - it's creamy, moisturizing, almost balm-like in consistency but still giving a decent swipe of colour.  It's not very opaque, definitely sheerer than a regular lipstick, but is not in the gloss territory.  The colour in the tube is very true to what it looks like on my lips, though since my lips are unevenly pigmented it doesn't give a very even coverage.  It has no shimmer or glitter, but I do feel it's not completely glossy and reflects light like it has a bit of frost mixed in.

Please ignore my skin colour/appearance -
I had to tweak the photo colour quite a bit to get the colour
on the lips somewhat accurate looking.




Dior claims regular usage of this product (regular = daily) makes the lips softer and smoother, a claim I have not yet put to test, but it is amazingly moisturizing.  Creamy, glossy, and leaning on the sheerer side.  Perhaps because of the creaminess, the colour tends to disappear from my lips in about an hour or two.  I would put the staying power, especially for this particular shade, in the gloss category.  Would I buy another shade from this range?  Right now, no, because I found equally good moisturizing lipsticks that give a bit more coverage and stay on longer, but never know!  If you don't mind the slightly sheer coverage and the pricetag, you might want to give this a try the next time you are anywhere near a Dior counter.

  12. That's a beautiful tone, moka is great depending on brands and ingredients as well. Sadly some tones disappear through time to be changed for new collections and tones. This one is amazing, CD is a fine, expensive but lastly brand, I like it. Something I was told in a big CD or perhaps Chanel comptoir is that instead of trying lipstick on our skin we could do it by applying a line to our medium fingertip, as our lips are of different color than our skin and yet too similar to our lips is this fingertip area. I tried and it worked for me. Thanks for this review, as a lipstick that is also a good treatment can even save up money:)

    Zelle - Dior sure is expensive! Try it on fingertips, I didn't know that - thanks for the info. I will try it out the next time I go lipstick swatching :)

    Shailaja - Oh, you like the brownish shades? I like them on onther people, but somehow it never looks good on me :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. Gaea - Nice idea..will try and see if I feel any differently about this colour :D :D

    Know what Ritika..I bought a Revlon lipstick and had the same experience. Looked one colour in the store lighting and back home it was a brownish-based colour. No like that one either :| I guess I just don't know what colours to pair it with..since all of you seem to like it :(

    Gargi - Thankoooooo..but I thinkkkkk that's only cos I cut and cropped most of my face out :D

    Thankoo, Cali :)

  20. I like the shade on you but I'm sure it'll look not so good on me! Must get some Dior :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. No it doesn't look that great on me either..it's just the photo colour/cropping making it look that way here. I guess it's a colour that would look better on people who have golden/honey kind of complexion..

  24. Btw I am becoming this queen of buying something to learn it turns out something else lol, don worry - u have me to feel good abt if u think this is a debacle :D

  25. Rads :) This looks good on you! I am a bit on the fence with Dior lipsticks as I got one Dior Addict and its just way too much glitter for my lips. I'm getting old :(

    Btw, if you want the colour to be a bit different (or to neutralize your lip colour) you could try it with a lipliner underneath. Definitely a bit of extra work, but it might change your opinion on the lipstick. Maybe some pinkish lipliner or just concealer? Don't lick it though ;)

  26. Hi Fieran..I had the exact same feeling with the Dior Addicts. Tried them in store and I didn't like the finish..if that's being old, I am just so glad I am old :D :D And I will definitely try out the pink lipliner - I know it sounds too simple but it never occurred to me to try that!

    Gaea - I like the Sephora here..it's a lot of natural lighting :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Heh, I always forget about the lipliner thing too, until I am reminded about it by somebody's blog or on Twitter. I have this believe that we can make any colour work for us.. we just have to be a bit experimental and try not to care about what other people might say. If you're comfortable and you like what you see in the mirror, then work it! :)

    Hehe, I use the "being old" thing as an excuse to say that I'm not too experimental and don't feel like walking around with disco-lips. I'm sure you're not old :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Fieran - Naaah I got what you meant .. that finish is just so outdated kinds, at least in my opinion. No offense meant to people who can carry it off..I just don't have what it takes :)

    Vid - Thankooo :D
