Although I generally prefer a tinted balm or lipstick to a gloss, there’s just something so festive and fun about a sparkly lip for the holidays, and that’s exactly what the Dior Addict Gloss in Sparkle* and Cygne Noir* provide.
The Dior Addict Gloss comes in classic Dior tube with the silver bauble on the end and the logo embossed. The packaging is very similar to the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer, however the applicator is a brush instead of a doefoot. I’m honestly not sure how I feel about the different applicators–they both seem to do the job!
The Dior Addict Gloss formula is thick without being sticky, and it is not at all gritty on the lips despite the shimmer. It actually feels like you are wearing something good for your lips, so it’s very comfortable to wear. Like most glosses, I only get an hour or two of wear, but these semi-sheer shades are very easy to reapply. Plus, I do drink a lot of tea throughout the day…
Dior Addict Gloss in Sparkle 322 is a beige gloss with gold shimmer. While both shades provide plenty of shimmer, ironically Sparkle is actually the less sparkly of the two. This shade is definitely wearable on its own, but it would also be a great way to glam up a vampy lipstick with some shimmer. The thicker, shiny formula of these glosses is very flattering to wear and I find it gives my lips the appearance of being slightly larger–and I’ll take what I can get!
Dior Addict Gloss in Cygne Noir 613 is a sheer burgundy loaded with shimmer. The shimmer really has a depth to it, and depending on the light I see gold, silver, and burgundy reflections. Even though this is a permanent shade, I understand why Dior is promoting it right now because it really says holiday to me. It’s quite glamorous on its own, but easy to apply on top of a lipstick (maybe one of the Dior Holiday 2015 Diorific Mat Velvet Colour Lipstick shades).
If you’re looking for a gorgeous shimmery lip gloss that’s very comfortable to wear, the Dior Addict Gloss in Sparkle and Cygne Noir are perfect holiday offerings to check out. While Sparkle is more of a classic shade, I’m really loving the multidimensional nature of Cygne Noir! What do you think?
