There's a new gloss in town. The Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss is a new formulation for Dior referred to as a "hydra-plumper gloss" that promises volume, shine and an iridescent sparkle that is easy and comfortable to wear. With "hyaluronic acid spheres" that capture and keep moisture in, lips stay hydrated and plump. All I know is that my lips were quite shiny and with 18 new shades, there is definitely something for everyone.
I received the shades: Mirrored*, Princess* and Diorama* ($42.00 CDN) all of which were totally wearable everyday shades. I felt comfortable wearing them both at work and on a casual day off at IKEA (yes, I wore Princess!).
These three glosses are glittery, but not gritty. The shine is fairly evident from the swatches and is a non-sticky gloss with a decent wear time of around 3 hours.
Wearing "Mirrored" - a bronzey pink.
Wearing "Princess" - a pale bubblegum pink.
Wearing "Diorama" - a rosey mauve. This was practically the same shade as my lips!

Final verdict: I loved these colours as well as the shine they gave. My lips felt hydrated in the sense that the moisture felt sealed in, but I know what to expect when it comes to wearing a gloss. I appreciated the non-stickiness and I have come to be satisfied with a wear-time of a few hours when it comes to gloss. My favourite of the trio would have to be Diorama and Mirrored and I wouldn't mind getting a shade that was a little more dramatic because the ultra glossy shine is really quite something!
