Dior Diorkiss, Fashion Night, Be Dior Dior Addict Lipsticks

Dior Dior Addict Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) was recently reformulated and relaunched for fall with a large variety of shades. I bought three to try, which are reviewed below. The updated formula is supposed to have “intense color” with a “long-lasting top coat” for greater shine and longer wear. I can only speak based on the three I tried, but the coverage is more semi-sheer to semi-opaque, lightweight and a little clingy, with natural shine. They wear three to four hours and are lightly hydrating. I was surprised to discover that they were unscented (and also had no taste), as I associate Dior lip products as usually being perfumed. The texture is more balm-like, and they soften as they melt against the warmth of the lips, but they never really drag or tug, even initially. I actually quite liked them as a lip product, but I was completely surprised that they weren’t marketed as more buildable/medium-coverage products, so if you like your lip color sheerer, you may like these, but if you were drawn in by the promise of intense or “high-impact” color, I’d look elsewhere.

Dior Holiday 2015 Collection

Dior Holiday 2015 Color Collection
Dior Holiday 2015 Color Collection

Gold has long been a signature color for the House of Dior. Mr. Dior’s creations incorporated gold in various ways, whether as an opulent adornment on a timeless Dior Grey Bar Suit or in a complete ensemble. Today, looks created by Raf Simons for Dior feature metallic, subtle gold elements to balance audacious shades of red, pink, fuchsia, or silver. Now, Peter Philips has combined the storied history of Dior Gold and Dior Grey with the modern incarnations of these elegant shades to create a limited edition color collection for holiday. Philips’ vision of gold and radiance incorporates the emblematic Dior Grey with gold to create a subtle, delicate hybrid. This modern shade of Grey-Gold mixes seamlessly with more intense shades of radiant reds and pinks and delicate, shimmering nudes for an urban yet sophisticated look.

Eyes are imagined in iridescent and metallic effects, from shimmering grey-gold contrasting with warmer hues of soft burgundy and pale pink, to elegant champagne complemented by regal purple. Lips pop in moisture-rich matte shades of vibrant pink, rosewood, deep red, and fresh pink, while nails complete the look in shades of grey iridescent gold, blazing red, burgundy and sparkling glitter gold. The complexion is luminous, highlighted by shades of golden beige.

Diorific Mat Velvet Colour Lipstick ($38.00) (Limited Edition)

For the first time, the cult favorite Diorific Lipstick is available in a new more moisturizing formula. Featuring four new luminous velvet shades, from rosewood to iconic red to classic pinks, each Diorific Mat Lipstick provides weightless, long-wearing color without drying for an elegant, modern effect.

The new Dior Addict formula is a breakthrough hybrid lipstick, delivering intense color and a long-lasting top coat in one. Featuring a Hydra-Gel Topcoat and a Triple Oil Complex at the core of the lipstick, Dior Addict lips are plumped with more volume and spectacular color than ever before.

Dior has created four must-have It Shades and corresponding Vernis shades to illustrate the new Dior Addict Lipstick Collection. Be Dior is an audacious raspberry inspired by the emblematic rose of the House of Dior, Wonderful is a fresh baby pink created in tribute to Monsieur Dior’s declaration that pink is a shade that can be worn “at any hour,” Smile is a versatile pinky nude that creates an illuminating, natural effect on the lips and Tribale is a pearly coral reminiscent of Monsieur Dior’s classic pearl accents.

Dior Eclectic (866) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Eclectic (766) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a muted, smoky set of shades ranging from a pinky-beige to deep purple. I loved the color combination put together here, as using the blackened green made for an interesting time, but the quality just isn’t there. I wish the eyeshadows were softer and less dry, even if they were sheerer, but the thinner, dusty texture made for a lot of extra work to really blend and diffuse the eyeshadows on the lid.

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of five eyeshadows ranging from pale peach to shimmery, navy blue. It’s not the worst palette I’ve come across from Dior, but it had that signature miss–rich blue eyeshadow–that really brought down the palette as a whole, though the other four shades were okay but nothing impressive.

Dior Addict Fluid Shadows

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a new, limited edition liquid eyeshadow formula available in five shades. It’s supposed to be a “lightweight, fluid eye shadow” that can be used “as a liner or as allover shadow” that is long-wearing with “enamel shine.” If you’re not a fan of liquid eyeshadow, I don’t suspect these will be converting you any time soon. The texture is thin and watery. They’re very, very difficult to work with, and they do not layer, blend, or dry down well on the lid; they tend to crack and flake off in chunks. If you attempt to layer, the next layer will lift the color underneath it, and the second layer won’t stick to anything. The only way to wear these was by applying a small dab on the center of lid and then using a fingertip to blend to the point where the color wasn’t noticeable and only some shimmer remained. I don’t recommend using the applicator, as it applies a lot of product and makes it difficult to achieve precision. These were a complete disappointment with no redeeming qualities.
