I held off buying anything from the Tie Dye Summer collection as I've
had quite a few regret purchases from Dior so although initial reviews
were good, I decided to wait before buying until more reviews came in
and I had tested the products at the counter. Suffice to say that I
ended up buying a lot less that I had initially wanted.
The Dior Addict
lipsticks from this collection feature a new two-tone effect, the Dior
"CD" logo is a contrasting colour throughout the bullet and the two
shades are meant to create a subtle tie dye effect. Here in the UK we
received six shades but some countries only got four (Cosmic Pink and
Hypnotic Plum being the two shades not released in every country).
formula has a creamy feel, there is quite a bit of slip and it feels
lightweight and very moisturising. The colours apply smoothly and the
two colours within each lipstick mix together evenly, though I don't get
what this tie dye effect shenanigans is about as I'm not seeing it.
#004 Cosmic Pink is a pink shade with a touch of mauve and #006 Nude
Fever is a beige nude, this is my favourite of the two as unlike a lot
of nudes its not warmed toned and does not wash me out (probably as a
bit of my natural lip colour seems to mix with this so its not a flat
Coverage wise I'd say these are sheer to medium and lasting time isn't
the best, 2/3 hours tops for Cosmic Pink (though this does leave a bit
of a stain) and a fleeting 1 hour for Nude Fever.
Whilst the colours aren't earth shattering, they are pretty and its a
nice formula. Had Nude Fever lasted as long as Cosmic Pink I would have
bought a back up as a good nude is not easy to find. As an aside I find
these feel a bit more creamy than the normal Addicts and as the Addict
lipstick line is being reformulated later this year it made me wonder if
the Addicts in this collection are similar to the new formula coming out.
