The new Dior Addict lipstick relaunched for this Fall come in three finishes, Glow (which contains a subtle pearly shine), Flash (pure, accented colour) and Glitter (containing iridescent shimmer/glitter). I wanted to buy one from each finish but the Black Tie I wanted from the Flash finish was sold out everywhere.
The lipstick case has been updated and
now has a magnet fitting so that the lipstick clicks in when sliding
into the tube.
Bright #260 (from the Glitter range) is a slightly milky pale pink with a
heavy does of silver micro glitter. The coolness and silver hue from the
glitter doesn't really suit me but I was pleased that for a glitter
finish the texture was smooth.
True #722 (from the Glow range) is a very
flattering rosewood with a shine/glow finish.
The reformulated formula has a hydra-gel core throughout the length of
the bullet and is meant to deliver a top coat effect for sensational
mirror shine. I quite liked the previous Addicts and have to admit that
the new incarnation does not seem so dissimilar. They feel lightweight
and are hydrating, wear for around 3 hours and give a shiny finish. The most noticeable differences I find is that neither shade settled into lip lines (the
former lighter shades of Addicts were prone to doing this) and these are
These are very nice lipsticks, though in a mass of so many good quality
lipsticks on the market I don't feel that they necessarily offer
anything new to the table so won't rush to buy more (unless its an
unmissable shade of course...).
