Dior Grand Bal Holiday 2012 Makeup Collection - Diorific Lipstick in Lady
I wanted to pick up something from the Dior Grand Bal Collection just for the awesome packaging used throughout, and the nail polishes and lipsticks were what I wanted the most.  I finally picked the Diorific lipstick in the shade Lady - a soft coral red and perhaps the more wearable of the 4 Diorific lipsticks (at least on my darker Indian skin tone).  The packaging is admittedly what attracted me the most about this lipstick, but the formula is just as awesome.  Soft, smooth, and so comfortable on the lips.  The Diorific Lady is amazingly pigmented and can be applied with a lip brush for a softer wash of colour or directly from the tube for a fuller, richer color.  Scroll on for photos.

Going by the packaging, I had expected this to have a little more weight, but the lipstick casing is surprisingly light.

Diorific lipstick in Lady applied directly from the tube to give a richer color payoff
 I haven't tried any of the other Dior lipsticks to compare this to (except for a Rouge serum which I DID NOT like), but if the Diorific lipstick in Lady is anything to go by, these are a must-have!  The color payoff is excellent, and the formula is extremely lip friendly.  If you are looking for a red that would be perfect for this fall/winter and doesn't take too much of an effort to carry off, do give the Diorific Lady a try.
