A Sheer Dance of Fuchsia Shimmer

Dior Espiegle (687) Dior Addict Lipstick ($31.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “punch of pink.” It looks like a fuchsia pink in the tube, but it’s much tamer swatched and applied. It’s a lightly cool-toned, medium pink with iridescent shimmer. On my lips, it brightened and added some cool-toned pink coloring. Guerlain Rose Ensoleille looks similar on but is a bit warmer overall. Guerlain Rose Piquant is cooler-toned. The shimmer was reminiscent of Revlon cupcake, which is more lilac and pigmented.

This shade wore away in a mere two hours, which is quick for a lip product–a lot of this range lasts three hours, which is decent for something as balm-like in texture as this is.  The texture is slick, lightweight, and very comfortable on the lips.  It also applies evenly and slides on without tugging or dragging.  It is somewhat hydrating but not enough where I’d describe the formula as a moisturizing one.  The color is sheer, which is on par with the range and expected results (supposed to have a “veil” of color), so don’t let the color in the tube intimidate (or mislead) you!

This wasn't quite as hydrating as anticipated--it was just lightly moisturizing but not enough where I'd describe it as a hydrating formula. It was also a bit quick to wear away.

  1. This is so pretty!
    it reminds me of the sheerer colors in the reckon lip butter range, but this would make a nice luxe gift for someone who is a fun of that type if product.

  2. Yee

    I thought I saw this review already but maybe I’m imagining things!

    I have singuliere from this range and love it so i’d be interested in this!

    Do you have any other makeup on in those pictures Christine? It looks very natural but such a glow!

  6. Interesting color. I don’t know if I love it or not, lol.

    The tube color kind of scared me lol. The swatch however was a nice surprise. It looks great on your lips. I find this kind of sheer pink I’m able to pull off.

    I don’t understand who would pay Dior prices for a sheer lipstick, when there are quite a few lower-end brands that do it just as well (Revlon, for instance). Maybe I’m just biased against sheer lipsticks, but I’m not going to spend over $30 on something that looks and wears like a lip balm.

      I find for me to be more about the texture. I wanted to love the Revlon lip butters so much but the texture is sooo drying on my lips and emphasizes my dry lips. With Dior I don’t have that happen. So I would rather pay $30 on a lipstick that I can actually wear (even though sheer) than waste $9-10 each time trying out lower end products that really don’t work with my skin.

      Not everyone has the same skin tone and the skin isn’t pigmented the same way. I actually had this demonstrated really nicely yesterday. I applied a darkish berry burgundy nail polish on both me and my mom. On my mom it looks medium toned and bright, on me it’s extremely dark with barely no dimension at all. Holding our hands next to each other it looks like we’re wearing two different shades. It’s the same with lipsticks. My mom needs really dark and pigmented colors for it to even show up on her lips. On me even some of the sheer lipsticks that is almost invisible on most people shows up as bright, in your face and clown like. I have seen swatches on this site that look completely invisible on Christine (and are described as very sheer), that are straight up orange and unwearable on me. Every tiny little nuance in light and sheer lipsticks is very noticeable on my lips. As an example I can say that Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy (which is sheer, and probably not something you would consider) is as dark as I can go. I actually have to be careful, because it will look very vampy one me if I over apply.

      I’m willing to pay a good amount of money on a product that works for ME. A color that will look good, a formula that feels good on the lips and a scent that won’t give me a migraine. Opaque lipsticks are something that I won’t even consider regardless of price range, because I know how badly they look on my lips.

      Sorry for the rant, but it annoys me so f!$@&#> much when people talk about other people wasting money on something they personally don’t like.

        I apologize for the tone of my comment–if the product works for you, I’m not going to judge you for buying it. That’s why I added the caveat that I might be biased against sheer lipsticks. Since I have relatively pigmented lips, I suspect that the lipstick reviewed in this post would not show up on my lips or last very long, so I personally wouldn’t want to spend much money on it. If it works for you, more power to you! And sorry once again.

        • Avatar of tzwiggy t_zwiggy

          No need to apologize! It was mostly a coincidence that you happened to be on the receiving end of my outburst. I’m just tired of reading hundreds of comments saying “you might as well wear lip balm” on every single sheer lipstick review and wish people would realize that even though it looks like nothing on them it might show up well on other people.

    Does this have a strong/artificial scent? I love the color and finish, but can’t handle certain scents from lips products.

  10. I got one dior addict lipstick on my birthday in the color reflet (763) and it actually is sooo more pigmented then these… and it’s actually one of the most mosturizing lipsticks i’ve ever worn…

  11. Realyy liked the shade.. very pretyy.. but staying power is not going to work ..

  12. Lauren

    This is definitely a “leaving it” product for me. These are way too sheer for my tastes, although this is the best of the shades I’ve seen reviewed here. This is just not a product that would show up on my lips whatsoever.

  13. Candace

    What is the blush/ foundation combo you have on here, so beautiful!

  14. Avatar of artemis artemis

    no way x_x so expensive and not special. some way cheaper stuff is better than this(and more pigmented :D)

  15. Isa

    I have this lipstick, too but he is very clear :/
    Unfortunately, he is not really visible on darker lips like yours :(
