Dior Addict Lipstick Relaunch for Fall 2015

 

Dior Addict Lipstick Relaunch for Fall 2015
Dior Addict Lipstick Relaunch for Fall 2015

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. In addition, the collection of fashion-forward shades has been reimagined in three eye-catching finishes: pure color, shimmering and pearlescent.

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. Each lip shade can be paired with a corresponding shade of Dior Vernis: Be Dior #892, Smile #552, Wonderful #868 and Tribale #588.

Dior Eclectic (866) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Eclectic (766) Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Eclectic (766) 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.

Eclectic #1 a medium-dark eggplant purple with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. There’s a dusting of fine shimmer on it, but it’s really hard to see applied. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage with a really dusty consistency that made for tougher application and blending. It wore for seven and a half hours before fading. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 16 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Delectable (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Hourglass Exposure #2 (P) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #6 (LE) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Mulled Wine (LE) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Dark Matte #6 (P) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Delicatesse #4 (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #2 is a sofot, light pinky-beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a thin, dusty texture but applied well, even though it only lasted for seven hours on me. Kat Von D Moz (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Pretty (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Call Me Bubbles (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Exuberante #2 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Sensation (102) (LE, $29.50) is darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Vanilla Kiss (LE, $23.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). LORAC Soft Plum (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Cop-a-Feel (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Smitten (P) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Lucius (P) is lighter (90% similar). Cle de Peau Marmalade Sky #1 (P) is darker (85% similar). MAC Nubile (DC, $18.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #3 is a brightened, light silver with a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that didn’t get powdery or too dense to work with. There is an overspray, so it appears more metallic in the pan or if swatched without removing the overspray (I always take a brush to the surface and get rid of any oversprays first before swatching). It stayed on well for seven and a half hours. Viseart Sterling (P) is brighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Holy Bible (DC) is less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever ME202 Iceberg Blue (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Oyster Mushroom (LE) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Guerlain Crazy Paris #3 (LE) is more muted (90% similar). theBalm #34 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Les Aquas #4 (P) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Starry Night #1 (P) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Disney by Sephora Your Voice (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Flowers 3 #1 (LE, $25.00) is darker (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Pretty in Paris (LE, $9.99) is darker (90% similar). Inglot #447 (P, $6.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Guise (LE, $21.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Virgin Silver (LE) is darker (85% similar). NARS Silver Factory (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #4 is a deepened–but muted–green with fine green shimmer over a mostly matte finish. Applied, it looks mostly matte as the shimmer doesn’t seem to bind with the base product. It had good pigmentation and blended out fairly well while lasting for eight hours. LORAC Forest (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). theBalm #3 (P, $6.50) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Black Ivy (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel L'Intemporel de Chanel #2 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Punk (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Envy (P, $6.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Venitien #4 (P) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). NARS Snake Eyes (P, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). bareMinerals Utopia (P) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Eat, Love (LE, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). NARS Shade V (LE, $25.00) is warmer (85% similar). Giorgio Armani Emeraude (04) (P, $39.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Viseart Dark Matte #11 (P) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Eclectic #5 is a blackened purple with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a dry, dusty consistency that made blending more difficult as the color would look patchy and uneven. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me. bareMinerals Center Stage (P) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Huckleberry (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Meow! (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Chanel Oiseaux de Nuit #3 (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Jungle Love (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Pinkluxe #5 (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Arabian Nights #1 (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Glamorous (LE) is brighter (90% similar).

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Exuberante (766) Eyeshadow Palette
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.

Exuberante #1 is a soft, medium-dark taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had so-so color payoff with a lightly powdery texture that didn’t adhere as well to the skin without a base. The color blended out well, and it lasted for seven and a half hours for me. Chanel Signe Particulier #2 (LE) is darker (95% similar). LORAC Black #6 (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Power Player (LE) is darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Unabashed Eyeshadow #2 (LE) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Chino (LE, $22.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #2 is a soft, light pink-peach with a fine gold pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that ran a little dusty. It wore for seven and a half hours on me. Tarte What a Wonderful Pearl (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Blush Stilettos (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Strange (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Smitten (P) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Riviera #2 (P) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Tisse Cambon #2 (P) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Dior Eclectic #2 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Dope (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). MAC Sensibility (LE, $16.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #3 is a light-medium gold with subtler, warm undertones and a lightly frosted finish. In the pan, it looks metallic, but it is primarily an overspray and the underlying color is a lot less shimmery. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dusty consistency that made it harder to achieve true-to-pan color on the lid without it sheering out. It wore for seven and a half hours before I noticed fading. Guerlain Calligraphy #1 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). YSL Golden Glow #2 (P) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop High Tide (DC, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). YSL Rosy Glow #2 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Beigely (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Photosphere (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Snow (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Telepathy (P) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Entrelacs #1 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Lancome Filigree (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Natasha Denona Cream (21S) (P, $29.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #4 is a deepened navy blue with subtle, satiny shimmer over a mostly matte finish. It was very powdery and dry, so it sheered out a lot and was difficult to layer. It could have blended more easily, though a lot of the color seemed to disperse in the air if you made sweeping motions. It lasted for six and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Goddess (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Royally Blue (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Metamorphose (44) #4 (LE) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). LORAC Navy #6 (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Etiquette (DC, $5.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Arcturus (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cobalt Rush #3 (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Estrella (LE) is more shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Viseart Sapphire (P) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Minuit (02) (P, $39.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Exuberante #5 is a muted, dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen paired with very, very fine shimmer. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dusty texture that made blending more challenging–it tended to stick where it went initially and was less easily diffused as a result. The color lasted for seven and a half hours. Too Faced Yule Log (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals Toasted Espresso (LE, $14.00) is warmer (95% similar). Dior Precious Embroidery #4 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). YSL Saharienne #3 (P) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Constructivist (DC, $18.00) is darker (90% similar). Lancome Audacious (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Cocktail Black (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Bastille in the Night (LE) is darker, warmer (90% similar). YSL Rosy Glow #3 (P) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). LORAC Black #5 (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Constructivist (P, $18.50) is darker (90% similar). MAC Smut (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Warm (Winter 2016) Eyeshadow #4 (LE) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dior Parisian Sky #5 (LE) is darker (90% similar). NARS Ithaca (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Dior Fairy Golds #5 (LE) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Brawn (LE, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Addict Fluid Shadows

Dior Dior Addict Fluid Shadow
Dior Dior Addict Fluid Shadow

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.

Dior Cosmic (275) Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark plum with warm undertones and lighter violet pearl. When swatched, it looks much more vibrant and purple-like, but it doesn’t show up as opaque color and the sheered out color is much darker and warmer–more subdued and easier to dupe. I couldn’t build up the color without lifting up the initial layer simultaneously, and it was very hard to diffuse any of the edges. The product flaked off in significant chunks after six hours. City Color Gypsy (P, $6.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP A Vow in Venice (LE, $9.99) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Buxom Wild Nights (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Trusted Instinct #3 (LE) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Overlook (P, $14.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). NARS Desdemona (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Can't Stop, Won't Stop (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Shockwave (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever ME840 Pink Chrome (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Phenix (545) Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a brightened, light-medium yellow gold with a sparkly, metallic sheen. It looked chunky applied and settled into the lines on my lid (which I wouldn’t consider having that many of!), and it dried unevenly so it would look thicker/raised in places. The sparkle fell out after four hours, while chunks came off after six hours of wear. L'Oreal Eternal Sunshine (P, $7.99) is darker (95% similar). L'Oreal Gold Imperial (LE, $7.99) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Golden Rhea (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Lancome Eternal Gold (P, $24.50) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). NARS Studly (LE, $29.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Chanel Rêve d'Orient #3 (LE) is darker, cooler, better quality (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Gold Souk (LE, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Praline (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D410 Gold Nugget (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Interstellar (P, $20.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Cushy Life (LE, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Vision (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Naked Bronze (Eye Color) (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Muse #3 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Honey Pot (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Zenith (13) (LE, $39.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals Hoopla (LE) is darker (90% similar). MAC Night Thrill (LE, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). LORAC Unlimited (P, $19.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Ulta Gold (P, $10.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Univers (655) Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a dark taupe brown with warmer undertones and a cooler overtone. As it was very difficult to achieve opaque color out of it, the sheered out version was much warmer as bronzy gold frost dominated. It dried down quickly and wasn’t capable of being layered. There was flaking within six hours. NARS L'Amour, Toujours L'Amour #3 (LE, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Stud (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Fallen Angel #2 (LE) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Pastelluxe #5 (P) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Cashmere #6 (P) is cooler (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Rock Chick #2 (P) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Nude Compliment (90) (LE, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Aurora (825) Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light-medium rose gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to mostly opaque), and it was the only shade that I found could be somewhat layered. It did seem to thicken and emphasize the lid for me, though. It lasted for six hours before flaking off. YSL Pink Cascade (06) (P, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Nude Dip #2 (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #16 (P, $23.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Parallel Universe (Left) (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Dior Destinee (875) Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a deepened burgundy with warm, reddish-brown undertones and lighter plum-burgundy shimmer that gives it a frosted sheen. It dried down quickly and emphasized the texture of the lid, and it was utterly impossible to layer this without it lifting in giant patches. It started to flake off after six hours of wear. Make Up For Ever D826 Fig (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (95% similar). Natasha Denona Maroon (22M) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar).

I’m not sure about this shade being universally applicable (it’s rare for a product like this to work across all skin tones), as I could see the base color possibly becoming chalky on darker skin tones, so you might want to check it out on-counter if you can. On very fair skin tones, it may add slight warmth and color, while fair to medium-dark will likely see more of a golden sheen without much color. On my medium skin tone, I get a golden glow that makes my cheekbones pop without any noticeable color. It’s a very fine shimmer, so it doesn’t emphasize pores, and the powder’s texture was soft without being powdery. It was one of the better Dior face powders I’ve tested in the last couple of years, so it was a pleasant surprise to try. The highlighter wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

Dior Cosmopolite Collection for Fall 2015

Dior Cosmopolite Collection
Dior Cosmopolite Collection

Manifold and universal, the Dior woman is above all free. Her makeup is a reflection of her wants, her needs and her many facets. For this very woman, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, has created his first collection of colors. Like a manifesto of freedom for each and every woman, the collection promises plural forms of beauty, a “Cosmopolite” beauty.

Dior Addict Fluid Shadow ($32.00)

The eyes light up with mirror-shine color, highlighted by the innovative Dior Addict Fluid Shadow texture and its magnetic shimmer. Created by Peter Philips, the new-generation eyeshadow gives eyelids the unprecedented, lacquer-like shine of a continuous film of light. A major innovation from Dior research, this lightweight fluid with flawless hold revolutionizes makeup application: applied in a solid block of color over the entire eyelid or along the upper lashes like an eyeliner, Dior Addict Fluid Shadow comes in six precious, metallic shades that light up the eyes with a quick stroke of the brush.

  • Magnetic
  • Eclipse
  • Cosmic
  • Phenix

Ultra-easy, intuitive application with the fingertips and three shades to choose from – coral, rosewood or fresh pink – for a face with an incomparable healthy glow.

5 Couleurs Cosmopolite Couture Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00) (Limited Edition)

Under the expert hands of Peter Philips, the iconic 5 Couleurs palette gets a new look for fall as the four letters of DIOR dance across its harmony of brand new colors. The two new limited-edition creations flatter all eyes, whether dark or light, and all types of beauty. Because the Dior woman has many facets – couture or natural, sophisticated or discreet – she can choose between a harmony of brown, beige and gold contrasted with denim blue; or an accord of silver, mauve and burgundy set against a moss green. Whether she opts for a bold or more delicate look with the 5 Couleurs shadows, her eyes are always defined with the Sourcils Poudre pencil. A Dior makeup essential since 1991, it is now decked out in a new cloak of midnight blue. In addition to the four existing shades, two new ash shades are now available for blonde or light brown tones. Inspired by the professional tools of Dior makeup artists, the pencil combines the definition of a wax and the finish of a powder. Its brush tip makes it the accessory no woman can do without for a flawless, harmonious brow line.
