Dior Addict Lipstick - Part 2

I knew I would order more of Dior's new Dior Addict Lipstick ($28), currently exclusive to Sephora. I had purchased three of them online "to try them out," and I flipped when they arrived. You can read my first feature at this link.

Inspired by the cutting-edge runway fashions of Dior, this hydrating and volumizing 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.

This time, I purchased these three shades. I have listed Sephora's color descriptions.
  • #330, Garçonne (sheer spiced rose)
  • #554, It Pink (sheer strawberry pink)
  • #578, Dior Kiss (sheer dark pink)
I am just as deliriously happy with these three shades as I was with my first three. Now I have half the shades, and I really need to stop myself from ordering more. My brain is saying, "Use these to nubs before you buy more." My heart is saying, "Don't you want to joy of trying out the rest of the shades?" Hopefully, my brain will overrule my heart.

Here are my three newest treasures, swatched in the same order listed above, from top to bottom on my arm. My photo was taken in late afternoon sunlight outdoors. I applied each shade straight from the tube.

Garçonne at the top is a warm peachy pink. It Pink is pure pink, baby pink. Dior Kiss is worthy of the house's name. It's a stunning rosy pink that adds the perfect pop of color to enliven my face. As you can see, all are sheer, which equates to divine from my perspective.

I've told everyone I know - from beauty professionals to friends - to check out these lipsticks at Sephora. It's too bad they are not yet available at other stores. Some women need to see and try lip colors before they purchase, and they can't pop into a Sephora store easily. I hope these roll out to the department stores soon.
