The Fluid Stick in Avant Garde looks darker in the swatch than it actually does on my lips - it sheers out a lot and basically accentuates my natural lip colour and makes it a little deeper. If you're after a 'my lips but better' liquid lipstick, then this is the one for you. The Rouge Dior in Unique is a beautiful red berry shade - I usually like a little more brown tones in my lipsticks, but this one is very timeless, classic and also just overall classy. The formula is very creamy and hydrating, which can be a little tricky with this shade as the colour tends to move around a little on the lips. As you can see in the picture: don't attempt to overdraw a little with this one. You need to be quite precise, so I'd recommend a good lip brush to map out where you'll be applying. A little fussy, so definitely not for those who like to quickly apply & go. Rouge Dior in Voyageuse however is a lot less fussy being a very pale nude that is very forgiving when applied a little outside the lines. The colour also distributes evenly right from the start and also has that creamy, nourishing texture. It does wash my complexion out a little in pictures (notice how my blush is almost invisible?), but as an everyday lipstick for those of you who love nudes this one is pretty much perfect.
Final thoughts? I definitely feel like the cheek sticks and the neutral/nude lip products are the true must-try's from this collection. These are so versatile and you'll get such good use out of them too - some seasonal purchases can be a splurge that is somewhat unnecessary and won't be pulled out of the vanity much, but these definitely tick the everyday-use-box.
