New Dior Addict Lipsticks

dior addict lipstick review 2015

Dior have relaunched their bestselling Dior Addict lipsticks to include an “ultra-moisturizing soft core” (the CD logo part that you can see in a contrasting shade in the pics) that provides a kind of shine “boost”. The idea is that this extra bit of moisture gives a glossy top coat to the lipstick finish and I do think that the new Addicts are a bit more plumptious and shiny than the originals; but to get the full effect it does mean that you have to squidge everything about a bit, applying as you would a balm, rather than trying to get one neat, slick hit as you would with a standard lipstick.

There are loads of beautiful shades and for the low-key lipstick wearer they are perfect – quite sheer, even when the colour looks incredibly vibrant and intimidating. Many of them have a kind of jelly effect – a juicy sheen rather than anything opaque – and they are lovely for foolproof, hydrating colour if you like to be able to apply without too much fuss. Here I’m wearing a pale peachy-pink, Frimousse:

It just gives the slightest hint of peach and a nice bit of sheen without being at all high-maintenance. I’m not a lip-gloss lover and so anything that makes my lips look smoother and fuller without the gloop and stickiness is fine by me!
