Spotlight on: Dior Dior Addict Lipstick
Colors: Paris (bright slight shimmery cool pink: discontinued), Tokyo (light shiny creamy peach), and Candide (1960’s retro cool creamy pink: Spring 2013 only)
Well, that’s a hefty price tag for a repurchase item. However, I buy one a year, so… Since I have drier lips I really enjoy this sheer creamy formula. It’s not really a traditional lipstick but more of a highly pigmented balm. It’s sheer, slightly buildeable, and medium to light in coverage. I have never worn this with a lip liner and probably never will. I find that there is zero feathering and that I do need to reapply every 1-2 hours depending on if I am eating/drinking or not. I find this glides on the lips easily with a luxurious feel and moisturizes my lips well. I like to get the more neutral colors in this since the price tag is so high. I want to make sure that I am using it and not letting it go to waste. I really liked Paris and am sad that they discontinued this color. I would have repurchased this one since mine is almost gone (notice the lack of height and the shoddy swatch)! I find that buying luxury beauty can be a good investment if you get a good product, in a usable color. I mainly will buy luxury lip and mascara items once a year… maybe more when I get a better job… J
Glide on and go in any color! These are so lightweight and easy to apply, you really don’t even need a mirror!
