Good news for you lip gloss lovers because besides new nail polishes Dior also came out with four new lipgloss shades. They all have shimmer in them and you know that Dior does shimmer very well! The four shades are the same shades as the nail polishes, so it’s great to have the same lips and tips! This seems really a trend this year, all the hot brands are doing it! I got quite excited when I got wind of these because I love Dior Addict glosses, the formula really works very well on my dry lips and they are possibly the most hydrating of all glosses that I currently own. As for the sparkles, I already tried the Dior Addict Gloss in Lamé Gold and I was amazed by the beautiful effect that it gave on my lips.
Dior renewed their Addict lipgloss line and now it’s called Addict Gloss instead of Addict Ultra-Gloss. The packaging remained the same but we’re now getting 6.5 ml instead of 6.3 ml and they go for around 25 euro. Besides the 4 matching shades with the nail polishes, there will be 24 new shades added to the line. We see light hues of pink and beige going to bolder shades of red and orange. Some have glitter and some don’t, so I think we have something for everyone! The glosses still have the same applicator and the feel and the texture is still very much like the old formula. The new colours are something that gets me very excited though!
Delice is described as a bright coral red. I find it to be more of a soft coral leaning more orange. It looks a bit like Spring Ball Vernis but the latter is more pinky toned. Delice contains delightful multi coloured sparkles. I chose term ‘sparkles’ because to me they are really little flecks of sparkling glitter. The glitter has this iridescence feel to it, and that’s exactly why I love Dior’s take on glittery nail polish and lip gloss. It’s not like little blocks of square glitter but it blends in nicely with the lipgloss itself. We see flashes of gold, pink and silver and together they create a beautiful sparkling effect on the lips. Delice is quite sheer and it’s the same story with the other 3 lip glosses. They gives you a slight hue of their colour, just like Delice gave me a hint of soft coral on the lips with quite some shimmer.
Dior lip glosses aren’t the longest wearing lipglosses because they are so lightweight on the lips. On me they wear around 3 to 4 hours before they wear off. The shimmer stays though and I’m happy to report that it doesn’t travel around the face at all. Delice gave me a very subtle tingling sensation which was actually quite pleasant. When Delice wore off I still had hydrated lips and that’s the reason why I favour these glosses. No peeling or uncomfortable feeling but soft and pretty looking lips!
Now these glosses are a great addition to the line. If you are looking for a pigmented coral lip gloss you might not find it in Delice. People with very pigmented lips might see less pigment on the lips. However, these glosses are excellent for layering over other lip colours. They give a subtle tint to the other shade and add the most pretty sparkle ever! In the right picture you can see me wearing it over Dior Addict Fire, a very vibrant orange shade. Delice tones down the orange tone a bit and adds glitter to it. That’s exactly how I like to wear Delice: over a lipstick. It makes drying lipsticks less drying so it’s definitely worth a try!
