Today we’re talking lippies! Glosses, and balms, and lip colours – oh my!
These are the lip products from Dior’s Fall 2016 Skyline Collection.
Let’s start off with the gloss. The Lip Glow Pomade in ‘Universal Pink’ ($41.00 CAD) is not just a gloss, it also takes care of your lips. It comes in a squeezy tube with a curved and flexible, soft plastic applicator.
The pomeade went on mostly clear, but with a slightly milky transparency. Although I did not see any ingredients that indicated so, the gloss had a light minty scent. However, a few minutes into wearing it, I felt a bit of a swelling/plumping effect (similar to the Dior Lip Maximizer, but not as intense), which I wasn’t a fan of.
Next up is the Dior Addict Lip Glow in ‘Lilac’ ($41.00 CAD), which wears like a tinted lip balm – it gave my lips a juicy pink tint. It was easy to apply, like a more firm and non-greasy version of a lip balm.
Now we get to the lipsticks. To me, the Dior Addict Lipsticks ($43.00 CAD) apply and wear less like a standard solid lipstick and more like a tinted, light-wearing, sheer-ish balm.
First up is ‘Black Tie’, a berry blue-based red. ‘Black Tie’ is definitely the most pigmented one of the four that I have.
‘Too Much’ *cue Spice Girls song to play in your head* is a sheer coral red. I found that this one moved around a bit when I rubbed my lips together, which would result in patchiness.
‘Sophisticated’ is a slightly frosty purple-y brown.
Finally, ‘Fusion’ is a pinky papaya.
These Dior lip products can be found at Dior counters starting August 2016.
