Dior Ambre Lumiere (227) Addict Gloss
Dior Ambre Lumiere (227) Addict Gloss

Dior Ambre Lumiere (227) Addict Gloss ($29.50 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as “peach copper shimmer.” It’s a warm-toned, medium copper-brown with peach and gold shimmer. MAC Get Rich Quick is similar but has less shimmer. Revlon Rosegold is a touch lighter (almost looks pinker on me). MAC Deliciously Demure is lighter. MAC Hearts-a-Beatin’ is a bit more plum in the base color.

On lips, it looks surprisingly opaque, though it does have translucency to it–the natural lip color will come through, but there is a lot of shimmer so the shimmer makes the gloss appear more opaque. This means that your natural lip color will affect the overall coloring; e.g. if you have redder lips, it will appear almost coral-like on. Dior recently reformulated and relaunched their Addict Glosses, and the formula is supposed to feel featherweight, contain Hyaluronic spheres that “keep lips smooth and moisturized,” and also has “mirror-like micropearls [that] reflect light.” It has a lightweight, gel-gloss hybrid texture that feels smooth and is comfortable to wear, and lasts about four hours on me (about average). The gloss is moderately hydrating, and it doesn’t feel gritty even as the gloss wears away.
