I cannot remember how long I have had a Dior Addict lipstick on my wish list because it has literally been years. They first piqued my interest when I saw swatches of them on Fuzkittie's (now retired) blog. The iridescent silver packaging, the glossy finish and beautiful array of shades to choose from was too tempting. The price steered me away though but the price keeps climbing every year bringing the current retail price to $31. I treated myself to Dior Kiss at the end of last year before the $1 hike I believe but this lippie is worth every cent!
Dior Kiss looks like a shocking hot pink in the tube but the formula is glossy and sheer, making it easy to apply a thin layer to tone down the pink. The formula is ultra lightweight and perhaps one of the best lipstick formulas I have ever had the chance to wear. I love how the color does not settle into lip lines and has a bit of slip to give a moisturizing feeling. The color fades evenly after about three or four hours. Above I layered Dior Kiss about three times and while the color is quite bright, I find it quite pretty and refreshing. The shade livens up my complexion and is perfect for a minimal makeup look. I highly recommend this shade for spring and summer and it should suit a variety of skintones.
I am glad I finally bit the bullet and purchased my first Dior lipstick (and first Dior product) because it is now a favorite in my collection. Have you tried any of Dior's lippies? Do you have any recommendations?
