Dior Ruby Essence (778) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss (2016) ($30.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark reddish plum with warm undertones and fine ruby red pearl and a glossy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips fairly evenly. The gloss was smooth, lightweight, and almost cream-like as it was so comfortable to wear and had no tackiness. It wore well for four hours, kept my lips moisturized, and sat well on my lips throughout the wear. There was a slight, floral scent but no discernible taste.
The hydrating plumping formula produces a natural volume effect instantly and day after day. Bursting with hyaluronic acid spheres that capture and retain the surrounding water, its formula seems to quench lips, leaving them full and lastingly moisturized. With 70% mirror-shine stretch oils, Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss glides smoothly over the lips to create a spectacular glossy effect with a film so fine and comfortable you almost forget it's there.
