I'm Addicted to Dior Addict Lipstick


I think I've finally found my favorite lipstick of all time. I can't believe how fabulous the new Dior Addict lipsticks are. The packaging, the formula, the color, the texture.. I'm in love. I found myself really wanting to try these when I first saw the ad featuring Kate Moss as the spokesperson. I've always had a slight obsession with her as well, she's probably my #1 girl crush next to Victoria Beckham. Each color is extremely wearable. There's no crazy bright or dark colors that usually come along in such a large collection. I can say with pure confidence I would wear each color from Dior's Addict. Even the colors that look too bright or dark, really are much more sheer then what you see at first glance.


Take for instance the "New York" color which is the dark brown featured below. I thought there was no way my pale skin could pull such a color off. But once applied, and you'll see in the upcoming swatch, it's sheer and pigmented and blended perfectly into my lips, giving it a much more natural "plum" look.

Singuliere, Dior Kiss, New York


Singuliere - Bubble Gum Pink similar to my beloved MAC Gaga but much creamier and moisturizing.


Dior Kiss- Sheer darker pink that can be worn on all skin tones


New York- Sheer dark plum with hints of micro glitter. One of my favorites.



The lipstick is created with a formula that contains less 25% less wax than traditional lipsticks, and the pigments are suspended in a transparent gel which means creamy moisturized pigmented lips that last hours. I got about 4-5 hours of wear off these.

Dior Addict Lipstick is my favorite lipstick to date, it exceeds any MAC or even YSL stick that's I've came across. I like to think of these as a cross between a lipgloss and a lipstick. The color lasts for hours and the texture is creamy like a lipstick, however the moisture and shine is that of a gloss. This is the perfect in between. I can safely say there is no one who won't like these, and there is no downside either. There's a couple more colors I plan on purchasing including Basic and Tulle.

  1. I wonder how the formulation is different from the Dior Addict High Shine lipsticks, I'm looking forward to finding out! I bought a High Shine in "Flamenco Red" a while ago and wear it ALL the time. Can't wait to try these out!

  2. Looks like great spring colors to try out! No means to offend you though, I thinking would be nice if you do an upper lip thread or wax:)
