Dior is re-launching the Addict lipstick line, and so far the results are gorgeous. I picked up two of the shades, and will be reviewing It Pink ($28 #554). I love the packaging–it’s luxurious, modern and so Dior. J’adore!
This is a gorgeous slightly cool strawberry medium pink:
Liz and I only started playing with two of these, but we like what we see so far. This formula is gorgeous, it feels as balm-like as Chanel Rouge Coco Shine. After we finished some pictures yesterday, Liz realized that she had to have it. Here is It Pink (no lipliner or gloss, just the lipstick):
It Pink gave us plenty of glowing shine and color. We’re very impressed. As with many balmy, moisturizing lipsticks, our wear time was not quite as long as other lipsticks. Because Liz has spirited It Pink away (well, she did model pretty seriously yesterday and deserved it), it’s no longer here for comparison swatches. To be honest, this glowing formula is going to be different from other lipsticks in terms of the texture in any event.
In response to a reader question, here’s a close-up on the lips. As you can see, It Pink does not have any shimmery particles (although others in the Dior Addict line might, since I haven’t seen them I cannot say for sure).
