Dior Addict Lipstick
Advantages: Great, bright colour
Disadvantages: Slightly expensive
I have recently become a huge fan of Dior products after buying their mascara a few months ago. Their rather high price used to put me off slightly, but I now think they are very much worth the money.
I purchased a deep pink shade which I felt most suited my skin tone but it was amongst 10+ other shades so there really is something for everyone in this range. They start with nude colours and go all the way through to the deepest shades.
Mine doesn't look like the one in the picture above as my one has clear packaging that shines different colours in the light with 'Dior' etched into it under the surface, making it look really classy and appealing from the first glance. The lipstick itself can be removed from the tube with the circular end that clicks out of the top and it glides out nicely from there not leaving any spare lipstick on the inside. The end of the lipstick comes out really easily for use with no effort required. The end of the lipstick itself is actually quite small but this does mean it can be applied really accurately.
The lipstick has quite a matte finish which I like, but it can be glammed up with some lip gloss for an evening event or just for a different look. I would recommend the Dior Addict Lipgloss range for that purpose. It applies really well and is very creamy. It feels very light once it is applied even though the colour has a lot of pigment in it and is very bright, really standing out. For the purpose of this review, I have tried to see if there is a scent or taste to it, but there is certainly nothing unpleasant about it!
I purchased this from my local Dior concession within Debenhams for £16 and you should be able to find them readily available in most large department stores. Also, for a good deal on the lipstick its worth having a look on the Internet and websites such as eBay and amazon for a discounted price.
In summary, I would definitely buy this product again as I find it perfect for a daytime and evening look. Also it stays on really well and I only have to reapply it once or twice throughout the day just to keep the colour fresh. It'll stay perfect throughout the day as the colour doesn't bleed or run, it just stays in place really nicely. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an all round lipstick that stands out from the crowd.
Summary: Fantastic, everyday lipstick.
