Dior Espiegle (687) Dior Addict Lipstick
A Sheer Dance of Fuchsia Shimmer
Dior Espiegle (687) Dior Addict Lipstick ($31.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “punch of pink.” It looks like a fuchsia pink in the tube, but it’s much tamer swatched and applied. It’s a lightly cool-toned, medium pink with iridescent shimmer. On my lips, it brightened and added some cool-toned pink coloring. Guerlain Rose Ensoleille looks similar on but is a bit warmer overall. Guerlain Rose Piquant is cooler-toned. The shimmer was reminiscent of Revlon cupcake, which is more lilac and pigmented.
This shade wore away in a mere two hours, which is quick for a lip product–a lot of this range lasts three hours, which is decent for something as balm-like in texture as this is. The texture is slick, lightweight, and very comfortable on the lips. It also applies evenly and slides on without tugging or dragging. It is somewhat hydrating but not enough where I’d describe the formula as a moisturizing one. The color is sheer, which is on par with the range and expected results (supposed to have a “veil” of color), so don’t let the color in the tube intimidate (or mislead) you!
