I blame Twitter for all my recent make-up buys. I have been absolutely in love with this amazing and stunning Dior lipstick thanks to the lovely Tina at All The Vanity! If she hadn't recently tweeted about her favorite Dior Addict lipstick shades the other day, I would have probably not thought about checking out Dior for lipsticks anytime soon as MAC is my first resort for lipsticks for some reason.
Let me start off by saying that this was a really touch choice! Dior currently has 50+ shades in their Addict lipstick collection. Of the 50+ possible colors, I'd say 75% are shades that I would love to own and that I'd actually wear! I chose Singuliere because I love me some pink lipstick. I feel like I usually buy corals, nudes and not enough pinks. When I swatched Singuliere I knew I had to have it and I'm soooo happy with my choice!
Needless to say the packaging is to absolutely die for! I don't think I will have the courage to throw away the empty container after I'm done with it, hoarder much? Yes! The box is silver cardboard, the container itself is clear, holographic plastic that looks gorgeous when moved around. It's definitely not your regular lipstick container as you have to pull out the actual lipstick portion where as with say a MAC lipstick you would just need to twist off the cap. It feels so luxurious in hands, and it is hence the $28 price tag.
Singuliere is a bright bubblegum pink and it looks brighter in the container. It is a sheer lipstick but can definitely be built up to the desired intensity. For being a sheer lipstick, I think it has good pigmentation. Super creamy consistency makes application a breeze. There is absolutely not shimmer or glitter in this lipstick. I think a bit of a prep may be necessary if you have dry lips as the creamy formula may get stuck in dry spots on lips. Nothing a little lip scrub can't fix. Because it has 25% less wax than regular lipsticks, it results in spectacular high shine, plumped lips without the need of lip gloss. There is also no stickiness involved though there is shine, a lot of it. The shine doesn't last as long as the color itself, I would say about an hour or so. The color, considering you don't eat or drink, lasts a bit longer. 465 is a great everyday shade for girly pink lips!
I think Dior chose the perfect name for these lipsticks....Addict! I am totally an addict after my first lipstick from this line. I cannot wait to get more colors, next one being Diorissime - divine!
What do you think of Dior Addict Lipsticks?
