Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Reflect
Advantages: Beautiful shades and a glossy finish
Disadvantages: It's expensive
I love lip glosses because I find that lip sticks can be drying and their colours are often too vibrant and attention drawing for my liking. My lip gloss collection is much larger than ever is necessary for it to be but nevertheless I keep adding to it. My latest and more extravagant addition is Ultra-Gloss by Dior.
What does the product do?
The product is first and foremost a lip gloss which promises to make the lips shine and look pretty. It also claims that it will make the lips appear bigger because of the shine complex which contains glass microbeads coated with a crystalline elixir which all sounds very impressive to me. It promises as well to make your lips feel hydrated and to coat your lips with a beautiful colour.
The shades come under three different headings. You have the Glow shades which are nude and subtle shades for those who don't want to stand out too much and then there are the Pearl Shades which have an iridescent finish and a bit more colour. Then there are the Flash shades which are the vibrant and bright shades for the more daring amongst us. The shades range from pale pinks to gold to deep reds and they are all accompanied by lovely names such as Party Lilac, Extravante Grenedine, Coral Fantasy and Satin Peach. I opted for the Pretty Rose which is a pink colour with shimmering particles.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be applied to the lips either alone or over your favourite lip stick using the enclosed wand. It can be applied as often as necessary.
Packaging and Price
The product comes in a lovely transparent tube and you see the exact colour inside. It looks really expensive and it has a screw top lid and the wand is underneath. The product doesn't come cheap which is to be expected from a product by Dior. It will cost you around £22 for each lip gloss and while this is expensive it should last you a very long time. It can be bought from large department stores which have a Dior counter and also from many online websites.
The wand has a very short and small brush which allows you to apply the gloss really precisely to the lips. A little bit of this goes a long way and I can cover my whole lips with the same application but if you want your lips really, really glossy then you may want to apply some more.
The product doesn't come with an aroma at all which I was supposed at because the colours look really fruity. The consistency is really thick and is one of the thickest glosses I've ever used. It doesn't come with any flavour either so it won't be to anyone's disliking. The product has a really glossy finish that does make your lips stand out and look pretty. My gloss is incredibly shimmery and it is packed full of glittery particles. This was no surprise though as you can see the shimmer through the bottle and there are other shades which come glitter free if shimmer isn't your thing. The gloss is very last lasting on the lips and it can withstand me eating and drinking. The gloss feels comfortable on my lips and it doesn't feel sticky. That being said, my hair does sometimes get stuck to the gloss on a windy day. I think it makes my lips look bigger in that it makes my lips appear fuller but it doesn't have that horrible stinginess that sometimes accompanies products of this type. The product looks and feels luxurious and you can tell it apart from the cheaper glosses which are available in the shops.
All in all, this lip gloss comes in a variety of shades that should suit everyone. It gives long lasting results, pretty colours and a gorgeous glossy finish. This product is expensive but its worth paying for in my opinion if you manage to find a lovely shade that you can wear all the time.
Summary: A lovely lip gloss that makes your lips look fuller and prettier
