Review: Dior Addict Lip Shine in Beige Casual 222

This is a review for the Dior Addict Lip Shine in Beige Casual.



What it does: (from Sephora.com)

Inspired by the cutting-edge runway fashions of Dior, this hydrating and volumizing formula dresses lips with a veil of addicting color and spectacular shine.

Price: $28

Pros:
  • This is a very sheer and moisturizing lip color, similar to a tinted lip balm
  • The color is very appropriate for work and everyday situations
  • Being sheer, I can swipe this on my lips without having to look at a mirror
Cons:
  • As mentioned, this is very, very sheer. It left almost no color on my lips.
  • Considering the price, I expected this lipstick to have more pigmentation
  • Don't expect this lipstick to last on your lips, since it has such low pigmentation
  • Being very soft, I went through this lipstick much faster than my other lipsticks
Would I repurchase? No. A Dior lipstick is simply too expensive to be used as a tinted lip balm. I really want something with more pigmentation.

I'm so disappointed that this turned out to be nothing more than an expensive tinted lip balm! However, several other high-end brands have similar sheer, mosturizing lipsticks which are similar to this one, such as Clinique and MAC.

Hope you enjoyed this review!

xoxo, K

  1. I do agree that these are a bit too sheer - I want more colour payoff for the money!

  2. I've always wanted to splurge on a Dior lipstick but probably not this one. Thank you for your honest review!

  3. Aww that's too bad this color isn't very pigmented. This seems to be a popular color and I was hoping to get it for myself. I think a lot of the Dior Addict lipsticks run pretty sheer though.

  4. that's a pity! but thanks for the review. I enjoyed my one Dior lipstick, but didn't feel that it was worth the high price.
