Red Alert! Dior Rouge Dior Lipcolor in Rouge Favori 752 Is the Business

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews

MAC Russian Red has been my favorite red lipstick for years, but Dior’s Rouge Dior Lipcolor in Rouge Favori 752 ($30) is nipping at its heels. Part of Dior’s permanent line, it’s a rich, full-coverage matte red with a hint of magenta, which gives it a little extra oomph.


And the oomph lasts. The non-drying formula feels light and comfy on my lips, and the color lasts all day long.

It’s pricey, fo’ sho’ (hey, it is Dior), but I sure do love the color.

PRICE: $30
AVAILABILITY: Available at Dior counters and also online

P.S. What’s your favorite red lipstick? Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂

    This looks a bit more hot pink than red to me!

    Non-drying, you say? Intriguing. Though I agree, that shade seems more pink than Russian Red does.

  4. Gorgeous, and gotta love that Dior packaging! My favorite red is Ellis Red 🙂 It’s a true red, and the pigmentation and formula are amazing.

    Very pretty, I recently got the Dior SPF 15 Rouge Serum in Red and im liking it….nit matte, sheer but buildable coverage, I dab in on sporadically when I want a red stained pucker. This one though loos marvelous.

  7. Pang says:

    Gorgeous color. I’m still kinda scare of red. I almost bought Russian red when it was promoted with Mac wonder woman. Though this might be my first Dior purchase if not then I can get both the Russian Red lipstick and ligpglass for that amount. Decisions…

    Love Guerlain Greta, MAC Viva Glam I, and MAC Dubonnet!

    Really pretty color but I agree, PRICEYYYY.. One of my favorite red lipsticks at an affordable price at the moment is CoverGirl’s Lip Perfection Lip Color in Hot. They also make the corresponding liner in Passion. Great product at an affordable price. I love it so much I even had to do a post on it!

    Hi Karen! Can you do a post on gel liners (specifically the Bobbi Brown one) and application tips etc.? I’m looking for a good eyeliner that can line my upper lash line + waterline without transferring to the lower waterline and that will stay put during the summer and at the pool. Thank you so much!

  26. Instant Karma says:

    Oooh, you know how I feel about my reds, haha. It looks gorgeous on you! I may have to pick this one up at some point; it looks a little different from the other pink toned reds I have. I think Tigger supports my potential purchase, too. “Merf!” means, “buy it,” right? 🙂
