Dior Pink Veil (654) Ultra Gloss
Dior Spring 2011: Trianon Silver
Dior Trianon Silver (707) Ultra Gloss ($26.50 for 0.21 oz.) is a a sheer silvered-gray hued gloss with silver, white, and fuchsia micro-shimmer. It seemed quite reminiscent of Chanel Aragonite, but when worn, they look quite different–Dior has a much finer shimmer with a milkier pale base that gives lips a paler, whiter look, while Chanel’s shimmer seems to catch more light. From afar, they look similar when worn.
The strength of Ultra Gloss lies in its formula–I really think it’s the feel and look of the product that makes this gloss worth checking out. It is a moisturizing lipgloss with a very smooth, slick feel–it’s very comfortable to wear–with a shimmering sparkle that’s noticeable without being overwhelming. It’s completely non-sticky and has no scent or taste. All these characteristics leads me to think that a lot of lipgloss fans will enjoy them. I did find that these only lasted just under two hours on me, and then all that remained was the shimmer/micro glitter, and I’d say this was the major downside of this gloss.

FINAL THOUGHTS: The formula is slick and comfortable to wear without being drying, though it only lasts a couple of hours. This shade is on the sheerer side, but I’m sure that’s for the better, given it is also a silvery gray. It should suit all skin tones, both from the lack of traditional color and sheerness. It can also be used to layer over vampy shades for more depth.
