New Dior Addict Lipsticks

The original Dior Addict lipstick was very much a favorite. I still have one in Lunar Brown and it's still a color I love. Dior just gets lipsticks so right. Last years Rouge Dior Haute Couleur is still at the very top of my favorite lipstick list.

For 2011 they have redone the Addict line. It's more moisturizing and more sheer than the original formula. These are not quite a gloss lipstick but they have that quality to them. Shiny,  semi sheer,  with soft shimmer and they keep lips moist. They also have good coverage.  The case is now clear  instead of the signature blue, with a silver tube.

Dior Addict comes in 56 shades  ranging from pale pink to bold red. I lean towards the lighter shades so that's mostly what I  have here. Favorites  are New York- a brown tinged  plum, Beige Casual- a  nude , your lips but better shade, and Beige Perfection-  a peach tinted nude beige.  Many shades are similar  especially in the light pink range . With the  number of shades there will truly be something for everyone and  they are perfect for the lighter , warmer days ahead.

 Shades shown left to right:

Diorissime 249 , Beige Casual 222, New York 714, Nude 333, Smoky 811, Tulle 214.

The full line is up now at Sephora and at Dior counters. (Some shades are exclusive to Sephora ). Retail is $ 28.00

I haven't really looked into Dior lipsticks before - are they very strongly scented?

Hi Larie,
Dior lipsticks are not strongly scented. Very little . Hope that helps.
