Dior Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss
Dior Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss

Dior Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) was recently reformulated and released in several shades, some familiar from past formulations (Dior seems to update their lip ranges every couple of years). The formula is supposed to be sheer, hydrating, glossy, and plumping using “hyaluronic acid spheres that capture and retain surrounding water … [so lips] appear full with lasting moisture.” I can’t really tell the difference between this formula and past ones in the range; it’s a semi-sheer to semi-opaque formula (from what shades I bought) with a very smooth, lightweight texture that is comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, and shiny. The non-sticky texture and smooth, gel-like feel are the two highlights of the formula, as they’re just easy to wear and throw on. The formula wore between three and four hours for me. I didn’t notice any scent or taste. They come in three types–sparkling, watery, and iridescent–with varying levels of shimmer and color.

Dior Diorama (785) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a soft, medium rosy pink with warm undertones and white sparkle. It has an “iridescent” finish. The consistency had a milkier quality to it, which yielded more opaque coverage with a little bit of color settling into lip lines, but I did not find it overly noticeable from a normal viewing distance (only close-up). The texture was smooth, lightweight, and hydrating over time. The color lasted for three hours. Chanel Noce Moscata (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Lancome Magnetic Mauve (04) (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Baby Doll (P, $26.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Sweet Tooth (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Pat McGrath Sunset Rose (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Bite Beauty Pink Pearl (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Sorbet (P, $24.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Ever Dior (643) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark reddish-coral with warm, gold micro-glitter. It had semi-sheer color payoff, which applied evenly and smoothly over the lips, giving them a natural tint/appearance. Despite it seeming more coral in the tube and swatched, the pink tones of my natural lip color made it so the gloss looked like a pink-coral overall–obviously the sheerness of the formulation will make these glosses appear differently from person to person as a result. It has a “sparkling” finish. The gloss lasted for four hours and was comfortable and hydrating while worn. Dior Pink Excess (663) (LE, $29.50) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Revlon Papaya (DC, $7.49) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 205P Pearly Rose (P, $19.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Becca Watermelon/Opal (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Nahema Smack (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). YSL Chase Me Nude (P, $32.00) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Frizzy Mango (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Maybelline Pearlescent Peach (520) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Chanel Sahara (610) (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Pat McGrath Sunset Rose (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). NARS Risky Business (P, $26.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). Colour Pop Champagne Mami (P, $6.00) is less pigmented (85% similar). MAC Bright Pink Bouquet (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Fenty Beauty Cheeky (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). Dior Paradise (732) (P, $29.50) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Colour Pop Paper Moon (LE, $6.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). Revlon Kiss Me Coral (DC, $7.99) is warmer (80% similar). Colour Pop Blowzy (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Cosmic (656) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and fine, pink pearl. lines along my bottom lip. It has an “iridescent” finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff–one of the most pigmented shades I bought–with less obvious, finer shimmer than the other shades. It applied fairly evenly, though some of the color seemed to accentuate lip. This shade wore for four hours and was moisturizing while worn. Cle de Peau Deco (16) (P, $48.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Becca Tiger Lily (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). YSL Chase Me Nude (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar). MAC Lychee Luxe (P, $17.50) is cooler (90% similar). Burberry Cameo Pink (P, $29.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Paradise (732) (P, $29.50) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Too Faced Dreamsicle (P, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). Guerlain Nahema Smack (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Fireball (P, $20.00) is cooler (85% similar). NARS Orgasm (P, $26.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Pat McGrath Bronze Temptation (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar).

Coverage really seems to vary, which seems to be how Dior does their gloss range, though they definitely run sheerer!

That semi-duochrome effect in Cosmic makes it look so cool and lip-plumping! I would certainly wear that one and actually use up the entire tube over time. Yep, it’s THAT pretty!

I loved their previous range and this seems to be very similar. I love the Look of Ever Dior and Cosmic, but I already have Paradise so I’ll likely skip that last one.

I really love shimmery lip gloss! That’s the only kind of lip gloss I’ll wear. For any other look I go for lipstick. I’m not normally a gloss girl.

I don’t think that I, personally, am able to feel the difference between the two applied, though it has been a decent length of time since I’ve worn the prior formula.

I like me some lipgloss with sparkle and iridescence. The cosmic shade is so pretty, but I’m not a big fan of corals. I hope one of the other colour choices has has iridescence. I noted the Diorama shade does, but to me it’s not quite as pronounced.

I’d be curious if you find any others similar to Cosmic in other hues, because that’s the opacity/finish I gravitated towards the most.
