There’s something so luxurious about a Dior lipstick, perhaps it’s the elegance of the packaging, the smooth click of the casing or the indulgent textures of the formulas… who am I kidding? It’s definitely all three!
The Dior Addict Hydra-Gel Core Lipsticks are a necessity in every beauty collection. It’s the type of lipstick that’s easy to wear, kind to your lips and pigmented enough that whoever you meet will be inclined to ask what lipstick you’re wearing. Once the creamy formula and your lips meet there will be sparks so prepare to fall in lust, and if the promise of beautifully textured lips and mesmerising shine isn’t enough to get your heart racing then the brand new shade offerings may just spark your interest.
Meet 553 Smile and 976 Be Dior, 2 of the 35 brand new shades added to the Dior Addict Hydra Gel Core lipstick line-up. Inspired by the House’s fashion creations, the new Dior Addict shades revist the icon’s of the Dior fashion house and reinterpret their colour story. With a campaign fronted by American actress, Jennifer Lawrence, there won’t be many people that haven’t heard the campaign’s mantra ‘Shine don’t be shy’ over the past few weeks.
Designed by Peter Phillips, the Creative and Image Director of Dior Makeup, the lipsticks are the perfect combination of colour pay off and shine, infused with an innovative hydra gel top coat that hydrates the lips on application. The perfect way to rock a statement lip during the winter, when the crisp air takes its toll on your lips, the hydrating formula will ensure your lips stay moisturised and styled with vivid colour and hypnotic shine.
So, without further a due let’s take a closer look at these new shades, and while we’re at it we better make some room in our lipstick wardrobe for two new, glittering additions.
The Perfect Pinky Nude
First up, 553 Smile, a pinky nude that glides over the lips with ease. The perfect everyday shade, Smile is the type of lipstick that would never leave my handbag. The elegant lipstick is embossed with the iconic CD logo, making you feel like a new woman every time you glide it over your lips! Despite being a nude you could never call this lip colour boring; its lustrous formula catches the light at every angle, ensuring your lips are the talk of the town. If you have to make a last minute lipstick decision you won’t go far wrong with Smile – and if it wasn’t obvious, its colour will have you beaming from ear to ear.
The Statement Lip
And last but most definitely not least, 976 Be Dior, a deep, audacious fuchsia that reminds me of the juice that runs from blackberries. With pink shimmer subtly running throughout, this lipstick is a statement, it shouts confidence and sensuality whilst remaining feminine and delicate. The perfect shade to ease yourself into bold colour, 976 Be Dior may just be my new autumn lipstick.
The promise of bold pigmented colour, enchanting shine and intense hydration in one lipstick seemed to be a dream come true for a lipstick lover like me with dry, dehydrated lips. And yet again, Dior have delivered. Want us to help you find your perfect shade? Tweet us @Escentual.
