Dior Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss
Dior Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss


More than just a gloss, Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss is a lip plumper and gloss all in one. This hydrating plumper produces a natural volume effect instantly and day after day. Bursting with hyaluronic acid spheres that capture and retain the surrounding water, its formula seems to quench lips, leaving them full and lastingly moisturized. With 70% mirror-shine stretch oils, Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss glides smoothly over the lips to create a spectacular glossy effect with a film so fine and comfortable you almost forget it’s there.

18 addictive colours, created by Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, and adjusted shade by shade to stand out as true fashion statements, with three different shine effects to choose from:

  • Sparkling: Colour with a high concentration of glitter
  • Iridescent: Colour that radiates with fine, contrasting pearlescent pigments
  • Watery: Clear, pure colour

Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss boasts a new, crystal-handled applicator that maximizes the glossy result and deposits the perfect dose on lips for greater precision of application, as easy and intuitive as ever. Apply Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss to your heart’s desire for sheer, fresh colour and ultra-glossy lips with faceted shine. For brighter, bolder makeup, apply in touches over a matching shade of Dior Addict Lipstick.

We did our big celebration on Friday night, and I wore a gold/bronze eye with a little plum paired with a deep reddish-brown matte lip. We usually get brunch on Sundays, but we usually head out pretty early and I end up doing makeup when I get home (also, so I can save myself a little embarrassment of not having two totally different eyes on in public, ha ha).

Introduction to Guerlain

Introduction to Guerlain

I’m new to this brand. Where should I start?

A Few Notes | I’m a long-time fan of Guerlain’s liquid foundations, though the shade range is limited, but if you can find a good match, they’re worth considering. Two of my favorite setting powders are Guerlain’s Les Voilettes Loose and the pressed (better value in the loose). I really enjoy Maxilash (Volumizing and Curling) for a fluttery, feathery lash that doesn’t get clumpy (it is also more forgiving if you have to reapply hours later). They are well-known for their Meteorites Perles and Terracotta bronzers, both of which I enjoy, but you’ll need to pick the shade that works for you (with the Perles, most will be universal with some being too pigmented for very fair skin tones as a finishing powders or too white-based for darker skin tones).

Their brushes have always disappointed me. Their current powder blush formula along with their eyeshadow formula tend to be more often a miss than a hit. Keep in mind that a lot of their products are scented, some more heavily than others, so depending on your tolerance or preference for scent, you may want to check that out first.

What would you recommend to someone just trying Guerlain for the first time?

Anastasia Teal Shimmer Eyeshadow

Anastasia Teal Shimmer Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a muted, medium blue with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a dry consistency that was a little loose in the pan and hard to apply to the skin. I had trouble blending it out and keeping it even, as it had a tendency to stick more to certain places. It lasted for six hours on me. Rouge Bunny Rouge Mysterious Tinamou (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). Sugarpill Holy Ghost (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Fresh Green Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a bright, light-medium grass green with warm, yellow undertones and a satin shimmer.

Anastasia Opaline Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with warm undertones and a metallic sheen.
