I think it’s only fitting to round off this year’s coral obsession with a Dior Rouge Dior (which I have also been obsessed with), so I picked up Mazette when there was an F&F sale a while back (sales are so dangerous. You get the impression that you’re getting stuff for free, but you really are not). The combination of an adorable color and a formula I can’t speak more highly of is simply perfection!
Dior Mazette Rouge Dior (028. RRP in Belgium: 36,80 euros. It actually goes for 33,05, and I paid 26,10 during the sales. Not bad!) is one of the shades that got carried over from the previous generation of Rouge Diors. It is a very pink coral, and you know I can never say no to one (most corals pull more orange on me. While I love those as well, I am always more excited when I find one that is very pink)!
Consistent with my experience with the new formula of Rouge Dior, Mazette has a soft and buttery texture that glides onto the lips easily. It delivers even coverage with some translucency, and the sheen makes it look like it’s glowing! Mazette wears well for four hours on me, leaving behind a tiny bit of stain. It is incredibly hydrating as well!
This is how Mazette swatches. Left: one pass. Right: built up.
I compared Mazette with some of the pinker corals I have in my stash. From left to right: Guerlain Gracy Rouge G, Dior Mazette Rouge Dior, NARS Lodhi Satin Lip Pencil, Chanel Le Baiser Rouge Coco.
It is quite possibly unique in my collection!
Here is how Mazette looks on me:
Can you see how smooth it makes my lips look?
While Mazette is not a shade that reminds me of autumn, but I am determined to give it as much love as I can before the last rays of autumn sunshine disappear! I paired it with a more autumn-themed eye look here, and I think it works well!
OK, I promise this is the last coral/Rouge Dior you will see for a while. I try to sample a shade or two of a certain formula just so that I won’t bore anyone, but I’ve been having quite a love affair with the new Rouge Diors and I can’t help it (if you want to see all the other Rouge Diors I have tried, click on the Dior Rouge Dior tag)!
