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

Dior Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) was recently reformulated and released in several shades, some familiar from past formulations (Dior seems to update their lip ranges every couple of years). The formula is supposed to be sheer, hydrating, glossy, and plumping using “hyaluronic acid spheres that capture and retain surrounding water … [so lips] appear full with lasting moisture.” I can’t really tell the difference between this formula and past ones in the range; it’s a semi-sheer to semi-opaque formula (from what shades I bought) with a very smooth, lightweight texture that is comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, and shiny. The non-sticky texture and smooth, gel-like feel are the two highlights of the formula, as they’re just easy to wear and throw on. The formula wore between three and four hours for me. I didn’t notice any scent or taste. They come in three types–sparkling, watery, and iridescent–with varying levels of shimmer and color.

Dior Shock (465) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a sheer, pink-tinged base with light pink and silver sparkle. It has a “sparkling” finish according to the brand. It accentuated the natural pink tones of my lips while adding evenly dispersed sparkle and glossy shine. The gloss was comfortable to use and wear, though it lasted for two and a half hours. The formula was lightly hydrating while worn. Maybelline Blushing Petal (505) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Charming (LE, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Pagoda (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Dolly Pink (453) (P, $29.50) is warmer, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Cruise (676) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and fine, pink pearl. It has a “watery” finish. The color payoff was semi-sheer–a noticeable amount of color (at least on my lips) but not enough to fully cover, so your natural lip color may alter the way this looks compared to how it looks on me. The texture was a little thinner and didn’t leave my lips looking as smooth as some of the other shades did. This shade wore for three hours on me but was hydrating. Chanel Pinctada (214) (LE, $30.00) is brighter, lighter (95% similar). MAC Ceremonial (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Bubble Butt (LE, $15.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Hollywood (688) (P, $35.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Electric Violet (P, $24.00) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Vibrant Vibe (P, $22.00) is brighter (90% similar). Maybelline Mystical Magenta (610) (P, $8.99) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Sephora Glossy Pink (16) (P, $12.00) is more pigmented, brighter, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Diorsphere (996) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, plummy purple with light pink and silver sparkle. It has a “sparkling” finish. The coverage was semi-sheer with enough tint to be noticeable but let a lot of the natural lip color come through. It applied evenly and had a smooth, lightweight consistency that was comfortable to wear. This shade wore for three and a half hours and was moisturizing. Sephora Pretty Princess (LE, $14.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Oasis (DC, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I didn’t notice any scent or taste. They come in three types–sparkling, watery, and iridescent–with varying levels of shimmer and color.

Dior Diorama (785) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a soft, medium rosy pink with warm undertones and white sparkle. It has an “iridescent” finish. The consistency had a milkier quality to it, which yielded more opaque coverage with a little bit of color settling into lip lines, but I did not find it overly noticeable from a normal viewing distance (only close-up). The texture was smooth, lightweight, and hydrating over time. The color lasted for three hours. Lancome Magnetic Mauve (04) (P, $22.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Baby Doll (P, $26.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Sweet Tooth (LE, $20.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Sorbet (P, $24.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Ever Dior (643) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark reddish-coral with warm, gold micro-glitter. It had semi-sheer color payoff, which applied evenly and smoothly over the lips, giving them a natural tint/appearance. Despite it seeming more coral in the tube and swatched, the pink tones of my natural lip color made it so the gloss looked like a pink-coral overall–obviously the sheerness of the formulation will make these glosses appear differently from person to person as a result. It has a “sparkling” finish. The gloss lasted for four hours and was comfortable and hydrating while worn. Dior Pink Excess (663) (LE, $29.50) is brighter, lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever 205P Pearly Rose (P, $19.00) is warmer, brighter (90% similar). Becca Watermelon/Opal (P, $24.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Nahema Smack (P, $30.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Frizzy Mango (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Revlon Papaya (P, $7.49) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Maybelline Pearlescent Peach (520) (P, $8.99) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Sahara (610) (LE, $30.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). NARS Risky Business (P, $26.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Bright Pink Bouquet (LE, $28.00) is warmer, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Dior Paradise (732) (P, $29.50) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Revlon Kiss Me Coral (P, $7.99) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Cosmic (656) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and fine, pink pearl. lines along my bottom lip. It has an “iridescent” finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff–one of the most pigmented shades I bought–with less obvious, finer shimmer than the other shades. It applied fairly evenly, though some of the color seemed to accentuate lip. This shade wore for four hours and was moisturizing while worn. Cle de Peau Deco (16) (P, $48.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Burberry Cameo Pink (P, $29.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Paradise (732) (P, $29.50) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Guerlain Nahema Smack (P, $30.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar).

Introduction to Dior

Introduction to Dior

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

A Few Notes | Dior frequently reformulates their products and discontinues older lines; as a result, I have found myself with very few lipstick shades to recommend that actually exist (a mental note has been made to consider to trying a few in the future). Most of their lip products have a floral/rose scent. They also are a brand that tends to have primarily limited edition blushes and highlighters with a limited permanent range (none that exist permanently now I have tried!).

They are famous for their Diorshow mascara options, while most of their liquid foundations have fairly favorable reviews to my knowledge, but I haven’t tried any of their current formulas in awhile. I am actually more curious to find out what Dior fans would recommend as so much of what I’ve tried from Dior in recent years has been limited edition (I try to only recommend currently-available products).

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