Can you believe there's a Part 3 to my Dior Addict story? The new formulation of Dior Addict ($28) has captured my heart - and my wallet. You can peruse my first feature at this link and my second at this link. There are swatches of my first two rounds of purchases at these links.
In the comments of my Part 2 feature, Al told me that Sephora had just added more shades. Off I went to explore them. Naturally, I ordered a few more - four to be exact. Inspired by the cutting-edge runway fashions of Dior, this hydrating formula dresses the lips with a veil of "addicting color" and spectacular shine. What I love is their sheerness - pretty color without a lot of pigment. I'm a pushover when it comes to sheer lip color! I don't need to use gloss over Dior Addict - a bonus for pretty lips in a hurry. They feel good too.
On my latest order, I purchased these shades, listed here with Sephora's descriptions.
#535 Tailleur Bar (nude)
#797 Stiletto (deep red)
#864 Couture (sheer hot pink)
#971 Foureau (plum)
I was thrilled with them when they arrived! Even though the color swatches at Sephora weren't entirely true, the lipsticks are all gorgeous. Here is a swatch photo, taken outdoors in full sun, that shows the shades in the order listed above. Representing different color families, they are all exquisite!
Despite the number of Dior Addict shades I now own, I am thinking of ordering even more. Do you think I need an intervention?
These lipsticks have been a Sephora exclusive. They will arrive in the department stores soon (the launch month is April). I haven't been hanging out at the department stores lately to know if they have started to appear at Saks, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, or other counters. When they do, grab at least one!
