Blue Lipstick Made Wearable: My Review of the New Rouge Dior in 602 Visionary Matte

Dior does blue lipstick! It’s the new Rouge Dior in 602 Visionary Matte


I’m blue da ba dee da ba da-ee da ba dee-a da ba da da ba dee da ba da…

Can you remember this Eiffel 65 song from the late 90’s? I’ve had it stuck in my head for the last few days.

Although I have many a middle school party memory linked to it, it’s not a sudden bout of nostalgia the reason why I have this annoyingly addictive song on repeat inside my head…

This is the reason:

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Dior has recently revamped their Rouge Dior lipstick range, which now features both satin and matte finishes, as well as a handful of fun, unconventional shades, including 602 Visionary Matte, a stunning deep blue.

Now, I’m pretty sure most of you won’t be willing to spend over $30 on a lipstick they won’t wear to the office or to shop for groceries, but, personally, I love the idea of a luxe French brand like Dior stepping out their comfort zone and venturing into the realm of unconventional colors.

The Rouge Dior lipstick in 602 Visionary Matte looks almost black in the bullet, but, as you can see, it doesn’t translate as deep in the swatches. Although it’s not completely opaque (I like to make it opaque by applying a matching liner first, as I’ll tell you in a minute), it is perfectly even and streak-free, which is pretty impressive for a shade this dark. It has more of a satin-matte finish than a straight-up matte one, and is very comfortable on the lips.

Blue Lipstick Made Wearable: Tips & Tricks

Rouge Dior 602 Visionary Matte Wearable Blue Lipstick Swatches ReviewWearing the Rouge Dior in 602 Visionary Matte on top of the KIKO Rebel Romantic Color Definition Eyeliner and Kajal in 04 Amazon Blue on my lips, and the three matte browns from the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad in 268 Candeur Et Expérience on my eyes


When wearing blue lipstick (or any other dark shade), using a matching lip liner as a base is essential, since any fading is much more noticeable than when you use lighter shades. If you don’t have a blue lip pencil (does anyone?), you can easily use an eyeliner, as long as it’s not too stiff.

My personal secret to make blue lipstick wearable is making it the main focus of the look, without forgetting about the rest of the face (I mean, you can’t just pair it with loads of mascara and be out the door, if you ask me).

If you don’t want blue lipstick to wash you out, I recommend pairing it with matte brown eyeshadows to add subtle definition to the eyes,  and a touch of neutral bronzer (I used the puroBIO Resplendent Matte Bronzing Powder in 01) and natural blush (I used the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed) to enliven the complexion.

    Love the idea too that a classic brand steps out of the comfort zone to expand the “normal” range of lipstick! And loved the color too, so chic! Xx

    You actually look really good with it and yes, I agree that the lips should be the only focus of the look. Never tried blue lipstick and I don’t think it’s right for me but hey, never say never, eh? 😉

    I agree, kudos to Dior for doing something so adventurous! As far as blue lipsticks goes, I haven’t worn it or anything similar (yet), but you really made it wearable. Well, as wearable as blue lipstick ever gets, I guess.

    It is amazing how beautiful this lipstick looks on you! I would never consider wearing such a bold colour, firstly because my fiance would make fun of me all the time haha and secondly, I don’t think it would look nice on my skin tone! But it looks so nice on you! 🙂

    I gasped when I saw you’re photo. I would love to wear a neon blue lipstick, and someday I will have the courage too…but even bright purple is still a bit much for me!

    It is way way out of my comfort zone and I don’t think I would pull off that colour as you do! I love how you are open to trying edgy different colours, I wish I was a little bit like you 🙂 That’s definitely unexpected from Dior, sometimes following what’s popular is good I guess 🙂 I think that would be a gorgeous colour for a Halloween look 🙂

    So so glad to see this review and hear how the product performs — you of course look great!

    Between both a drugstore brand line like Revlon *and* Dior releasing a shade of dark blue, I hope it’ll encourage more people to take a spin on the unconventional side 😉

    I have a couple of blue lipsticks now, and I have to say it’s been a great conversation starter and a confidence booster for this otherwise quite introverted person!

    Cheers!

    Wow this shade is really beautiful! I love that it’s a darker blue. Lately I’ve been seeing some baby blues and I am not a fan at all. But this one is definitely more wearable! You have some great tips on being able to wear this too. You definitely don’t want it to wash you out! Loving your smile at the end. It’s so contagious. 🙂

    That’s actually a really pretty shade of blue! I’m not sure I could pull it off though. But I bet it would be fun trying! And now I have that song stuck in my head…

    Your tips on ensuring the bold colour doesn’t wash you out sound brilliant and like you, I quite admire Dior for creating something so unconventional and ‘out of the box’! Having said that, I don’t think I’m quite ready to wear blue lipstick haha 🙂 Hope you’re having a wonderful week!!

    I was just looking at these revamped Dior lispticks and there were a lot of pretty shades. I def wouldn’t spend my money on this shade but damn, you made it really wearable! I swear you look amazing in every lip color.

    And yes, of course I remember Eiffel 65.
