Dior Charmante (437) Dior Addict Lipstick
So Charmed to Wear You
Dior Charmante (437) Dior Addict Lipstick ($31.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “soft coral.” It’s a shiny, soft coral with strong peach/orange coloring. On my lips, which have some natural pinkness but are not overly red or pigmented, it enhances the natural pinkness and adds warmth, but it looks very, very natural–if you compare bare lips to the swatch photo, you’ll see a definite difference, but from afar, you wouldn’t go, “Oh, she’s wearing color!” Bobbi Brown Pink Seashell is paler. MAC Razzledazzler is more pigmented.
The Dior Addict Lipstick formula is supposed to be hydrating while adding a “veil” of color and “spectacular shine.” Charmante is sheer in color, though not invisible, but it may appear to have more or less color depending on the color and level of natural pigmentation your lips have. It has a balm-like consistency–slick, creamy, and lightweight–that glides on readily and applies color fairly evenly. It’s comfortable to wear, and it was lightly hydrating for the three hours it lasted on my lips.
