1. Dior

Dior is one of the most famous a high-end luxury brands in the world, and it offers many lip collections. I absolutely love the shine this lipstick brand gives.

You can get up to 16 hours of comfort and elegant lip color without streaking or drying out lips. This lasting lipstick formula features a myriad of colors in iconic reds, vibrant corals, alluring pinks, romantic rosewoods, and bold, unexpected mattes. It’s enriched with hydrating mango butter which makes it a bit close to nature, while it also creates the pout lips effect you want.

Dior lipstick makes the lips look fuller, plump, and juicy without the addition of lip gloss over it. Dior is a unique lipstick brand to choose with a touch of personal luxury. Next time, you put Dior lipstick, people would definitely call you beauty with brains!

Start by lining the lips with Dior Contour. For perfectly even results, apply lipstick with the Backstage Lip Brush working from the center of the lips outwards. For a bolder finish, apply the lipstick directly on your lips.
