The very first Dior Addict Lipstick I got was a bright red modeled so beautifully by Kate Moss. I still don’t have the heart to use it all that often since it was my first Dior purchase, but that red really spoiled me when it came to Dior Addict Lipsticks in general because no other colour seemed to measure up to THAT one. Then out came the Dior Addict Tie Dye Lipsticks* ($34.00 CDN) with a second shade running through the middle in the form of the iconic “CD” for a truly “tie dye” twist while lighting up lips with bold and vibrant colour. There are four “sunset” combinations all in shades wearable for any time of the summer season.
You can see that the lipsticks look fairly sheer upon swatching, but are actually quite buildable. Does that second tie dye shade show up? Unfortunately, not really but I’d like to think that it influences the overall colour ever so slightly? They are very creamy, almost tinted lip balm in consistency and makes my lips feel very hydrated upon application.
Can you tell I have a favourite Tie Dye shade? I am LOVING the shade Nude Fever! I carry it with me all the time and is what I feel to be the PERFECT shade of nude. It makes me feel so summery and bronzed and would look so awesome with a summer tan! If you’d like to see me wearing Fuchsia Utopia, jump to my makeup look here!
Final Verdict: My only real gripe with these? I have to reapply fairly often, like every 2 hours. Not because the colour is fading but because my lips start to feel like they need more hydration. They aren’t dry or peeling, but feel like they need a “moisture top-up”. I just adore the shade Nude Fever though so I’m going to move past this one little thing because the packaging is of course, droolworthy and the buildability of each of these shades is a huge plus for me. I have never been one to wear coral, but with this formulation I can be as comfortable with coral as I want to be!
