Dior Addict Lip Gloss
Advantages: Feels light with a variety of shades to choose from
Disadvantages: A little pricey, but worth it
Lip glosses are almost like a collectable item for me and my collection seems to be ever growing! I have recently started using make up by Dior and recently came across like in my local Debenhams...
** Packaging **
As expected, a luxury premium brand like Dior package their products in a way that makes them look very expensive and really good quality. Dior addicted lipgloss is no exception. The clear plastic rectangular tube has been finished with a circular shape on top, nit only making it look snazzy but much easier to hold while applying it. The Dior logo is printed onto one side of the tube and I've noticed that if you hold it to the light, the tube appears to be several different colours, very clever!
** Stockists and pricing **
You will find a Dior concession in most large department stores including Debenhams, Selfridges and Harrods. They are also stocked in larger Boots stores and they are widely available online, so check out sone discount beauty websites for a reduced price! I paid £20 for the lipgloss from my local Debenhams but it may be available cheaper elsewhere.
** Shades **
Diors website have a good selection of 25 shades with almost ever colour ranging from nude to red but I personally chose 'pink flirt' number 247.
** Application and use **
As mentioned above, the applicator is really easy to hold and simply unscrews for the tube. It has a somewhat small applicator brush, but this allows for precise application. When the applicator is removed from the tube, I have always found there is a nice amount of product on the end to apply and no excess product. When applying the product it is very noticeable that the shade is rich in colour and as a result you don't need to use too much of it. It goes on very easily and it's too thick or gloopy, but instead creates a nice, light layer on the lips. It doesn't have much or a scent or it but it isn't unpleasant like some products. Similarly, the taste is fairly bland but quite sweet (I licked my lip my accident and tasted it!!). Once applied, the colour really stands out and compliments my skin tone and make up well. I've also found that my lips appear quite plump after use too and it gives them a nice shape although this is probably due to the slight shimmer in the product.
** Durability **
Usually, a lip gloss will wear off after a couple of hours or after eating or drinking. Not this one! I have eaten lunch and gone to work with it on and it has stayed put. I only needed to reapply once throughout the day. The only thing I did find is that it is quite sticky and if your hair gets stuck in it, it can remove the product but that is to be excepted really!
** Summary **
So, all in all I found this to be a fantastic product. It applies easily, feels nice while it is on and doesn't need cineast reapplication. A big thumbs up from me!
Summary: A 5* lip gloss!
