I’m infatuated with the new Dior Addict Lip Glow in Coral, €33. Infatuated. After weeks of use, you could tell me it was made of spider legs and I’d still be piling it on. Thankfully, it’s an insect-free blend of creamy texture, glossy finish and long-lasting colour.
Feelings aside, it’s a fancy lip balm. Colour isn’t bold, but it last really well. Even when wiped off, it leaves a sheer coral stain. This, combined with how hydrating it is, makes it a great base for brighter lipsticks.
Alone, it’s a low-maintenance wonder. The staining means you won’t have to apply it often, and the light pigmentation makes it easy to whack on and go.
Dior pitches a gimmick – that the colour will adjust to suit you once it’s applied. I’m not noticing any jiggery-pokery, other than my naked lip shade peeking through under the opaque wash of colour, so don’t expect vast differences in how this wears on different people.
Marketed as a miracle, it’s really just a lovely product – and there’s no shame in that.
I don’t want to jinx this, but I think I might finally use a lipstick to the end of the tube. Imagine!
