It might be a weird question to ask, but are you looking for an extra glossy gloss? Because if you are looking for shimmer and shine, you’ll definitely want to check out the recently launched Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss which includes 18 permanent shades such as Gems*, Pearl*, Shock*, Everdior*, and Ultradior*.
The Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss comes in classic chic Dior packaging with a brush applicator that is the same as the Dior Addict Gloss in Sparkle and Cygne Noir I reviewed at Christmas. This is a non-sticky gloss with a shimmer finish that promises to make your lips look plumper, but doesn’t do any tingly plumping that the Dior Addict Lip Maximizers did.
The Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss is available in three different variations: Sparkling (pearly shimmer), Watery (syrupy varnish) and Iridescent (changes with the light). Of the 5 shades I tested Gems, Shock, Everdior and Ultradior are Sparkling, while Pearl is an Iridescent. Even in the swatches, you can tell that Pearl has a milkier finish which is less overtly shimmery.
The Dior Addict Ultra-Glosses have a non-sticky but slightly thicker gel-like consistency, although I can occasionally feel the shimmer which surprised me, although I am very sensitive to that. As they wear away there is shimmer left behind. There’s a ton of depth to the shades, which are gorgeous and honestly best appreciated in person.
The Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Gems 169 is a sparkling gloss with a translucent base with the slightest hint of pink and a shimmery finish.
The Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Pearl 259 is an iridescent milky pink that settles slightly into lip lines, although honestly there’s such intense shine you can’t tell from a distance. This is the only shade I tried without shimmer particles, so it is the smoothest to wear.
The Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Shock 465 is a sparkling sheer pink that’s loaded with iridescent shimmer.
The Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Everdior 643 is a sparkling orange-red. My preference is definitely for the shades with a bit more pigment like this one, which add shimmer and a juicy finish.
The Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Ultradior 765 is a sparkling fuchsia with a hint of silver shimmer in it. It’s always hard to pick but I think this one is my favourite out of the five I tried! It really does make my lips look nice and full.
If you are looking for an ultra-shimmery, ultra-shiny…ultra-gloss that adds fullness to the lips then definitely check out these new Dior Addict Ultra-Glosses. What’s your favourite shade?
