Dior Rouge Brilliant in "468 Bonheur", "775 Darling"& "808 Victoire": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
New from Dior for Spring 2015 is the reinvented Dior classic lip gloss, the Dior Rouge Brilliant ($39 CAD). Almost like a liquid balm, the Rouge Brilliants are available in twelve luscious shades that provide high shine and a vibrant color. To see some swatches of the new shades, click......
The Dior Rouge Brilliant lip glosses come in sleek long lip gloss tubes with a shiny black cap and beautiful silver accents. The doe-foot applicator features a small reservoir that dispenses the perfect layer of gloss.
Infused with three "highly refractive treatment oils", the Rouge Dior Brilliants feature a beautiful, slick formulation with a shiny but non-sticky finish. The colors I've swatched below are rather sheer with very subtle micro-shimmers. The gloss feels moisturizing and lightweight on the lips but the wear is rather short, the shine wears off in three to four hours with minimal eating/drinking.

468 Bonheur: Pale milky pink with subtle shimmers that are barely visible on the lips.
468 Bonheur
775 Darling: Bright sheer pink with shimmers only visible in the tube.
775 Darling
808 Victoire: Creamy peachy gloss with subtle golden micro-shimmers.
808 Victoire
These are great non-sticky glosses with a sheer wash of color and a beautiful shine. The packaging is simply delightful, as expected from Dior. The colors are hydrating and the shine lasts for about three to four hours.

The new Rouge Dior Shades are available in stores at the Bay starting March 2015 and available nationwide at all Dior counters starting April 2015.
