Dior Gold Rain (164) Addict Gloss
Dior Gold Rain (164) Addict Gloss

Dior Gold Rain (164) Addict Gloss ($29.50 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a sheer, white gold with light-medium gold shimmer and sparkle. It lasts for two and a half hours, though the lightweight, non-sticky, creamy consistency meant it was very comfortable and nicely hydrating during that time. The formula is supposed to be a sheerer, lightweight, hydrating, and high-shine gloss, and Dior delivers–it’s a matter of whether sheer is your thing (or not). MAC Pussywillow (LE, $15.00) is darker. Bobbi Brown Rose (LE, $24.00) is less golden. Guerlain Gold Tchlack (P, $30.00) has a clearer base. Dior Lame Gold (LE, $28.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Dior Pink Excess (663) Addict Gloss ($29.50 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium pink-coral with pink and gold sparkle. It had semi-sheer color coverage, but this one had more impact applied than Gold Rain, as it did noticeable tint the lips and add sparkle. It wasn’t quite as glossy, though. It lasted for three hours on me and was very hydrating over time. Gucci Beauty Crushed Coral (P, $32.00) is more orange. Dior Rieuse (373) (P, $35.00) is more pigmented. Josie Maran Timeless Coral (P, $18.00) is less sparkly. NARS Salamanca (P, $26.00) is less shimmery. Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $29.50) is pinker. Revlon Papaya (P, $7.49) is more pigmented, finer shimmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Meh. I agree, Pink Excess has more impact but still, I don’t think I’ll ever spend this amount of money on a gloss. If I’m splurging on Dior it’ll be on lipstick! 🙂

I have number 267 Cashmere Pink and although I find that it’s really high quality, I usually wear it alone with subtle looks because I find that whenever I layer it, it ‘melts’ the lipstick and sheers it out. I’ve been checking out this nude one without any sparkles, maybe that one will work a little better, but overall I prefer the liquid lipstick line from Dior.

I really like the way Gold Rain looks in the bottle, wish it was a little more opaque like that. Do you know of any? This did remind me how much I like salamanca and rieuse it pretty too.

Both are pretty (I am quite partial to a basicallyclearwithsparkles gloss…) but Pink Excess is indeed the lovelier of the two. I like that has subtle sparkles (stealth sparkles perhaps?) but that you still do see them on the lips 🙂

I do like shimmery glosses, and these are both pretty, however I don’t really find them beautiful enough to pay as much for a gloss, even if it is hydrating.

Not anymore. They all got either used up or went bad.
Dior used to be my go to brand years ago. I still have a couple of lipsticks and loads of eyeshadows from back then. I think I liked their glosses, but I’m one of the strange ones who love lipglosses from MAC.

Hey Christine! Both look amazing on you! From the promo pics and description, Pink Excess looked divine, like Nymphette+Orgasm but now….no. Underwhelmed. 🙁 Oh well, money saved! About Gold Rain, do you think it compares to Oyster Girl from Mac? Thanks!

I don’t think I have Oyster Girl (for shame, I know, I am missing a lot of MAC’s permanent lip color range!), but from swatches I’ve seen, Oyster Girl seems to have a pinker base? Though it might look more similar on if the pink ends up getting lost.
