Dior Fall 2015 Rouge Dior Lipstick in "542 Nouvelle Femme", "753 Continental" & "956 Unique": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
For Fall 2015, Dior is adding three spanking new shades to the Rouge Dior Lipstick ($42 CAD) collection. Inspired by the modern and elegant Dior style, the three new shades promise to give the lips an "urban-chic edge". To see some swatches, click.......
Packaging:
The Rouge Diors come in sleek classic black tubes with shiny silver accents and the Christian Dior logo embedded on the cap. The packaging feels luxurious without being super flashy. The tubes have a nice weight to them, but they do easily catch fingerprints and makeup smudges.

Formulation:
Rouge Dior lipsticks have a very lightweight yet pigmented formulation. The wear isn't very impressive (four or so hours with minimal eating or drinking), but they all feel very rich and moisturizing on the lips.
The three new Rouge Dior Lipsticks for Fall 2015 are all different shades of rose. Unique is a deep, smoky rosewood; the pigmentation is great, but I found the application a tad patchy as the color kept on moving around on the lips. Continental is a medium neutral rose. This shade is super wearable and the formulation is top-notch. Nouvelle Femme is a pale warm baby pink. The formulation of this one is pigmented, but the color settles into the fine lines of the lips.

Overall:
These are three lovely additions to the Rouge Dior range. Unique is a lovely vampy red for fall but I found the finish a bit patchy. Nouvelle Femme is a really lovely soft pink but it will highlight any dryness you may have on the lips. Last but not least, Continental is the perfect "my lips but better" shade, and the formulation for this one is phenomenal. 

Availability:
Dior Fall 2015 Collection is available in stores starting August 2015.
