Nope, that wasn’t a typo. 😉
Rouge Dior 666 Matte Kisss is included in Dior en Diable (Dior’s fall 2018 makeup collection). I was drawn to this lipstick because of the shade number. I was like, “666??? WANT. NEED.” XD
I didn’t think it would be included in the fall collection. My intention was to only buy Rouge Dior Liquid Copper Lava from it. My wallet wasn’t ready when I saw the 666 lipstick. As a makeup enthusiast, I just had to get it. (Maybe I just can’t help myself.)
To be frank, I still had second thoughts when I had the tester on hand. I thought, “Do I need another red?” I have a few that I haven’t been using much lately. But I swatched it and, oh my goodness, it went on smooth and pigmented. It reminded me of the Tom Ford matte lipsticks.
I don’t know with the other fall collection lipsticks, but this shade is unlike any other Rouge Dior mattes. I have 999 Matte and that feels a tiny bit dry, while this feels creamy yet light.
Even the more expensive Diorific lipstick line isn’t near its formula. But Diorific has its own good aspects, which I shall blog about soon. 🙂
Anyway, 666 Matte Kisss is cherry red. It’s blue-based, I guess? I’m not that good at determining color bases as well as which skin tone will match a shade. But, I this this one matches all skin tones. A friend who has a bit of a tan looks great with it.
Iirc, Rouge Dior 666 is Php2250. Its price is a little higher than other Rouge Dior lipsticks being LE. But Dior (locally) increased prices of all their makeup and skincare. The increase of most makeup is from 100-200, but skincare varies greatly. The Prestige line has higher markup now than before. I don’t see why there has to be a price increase now. 🙁
You must check this shade if you’re looking for the red lipstick; that one for special occasions.
Rouge Dior 666 Kisss is also included in the holiday 2018 collection. The slight difference of the holiday version is the silver band around the lipstick case is shiny and sparkly. XD
