Dior Addict High Impact Weightless Lipcolor in #359 (Pink Empress) Review & Swatches

Dior Addict High Impact Weightless Lipcolor in #359 Pink Empress ($26)

Dior’s newly formulated Addict High Impact Weightless Lipcolor offers weightless, pigmented high-impact color with a smooth texture that allows it to glide over lips for color that lasts and lasts.

I purchased Pink Empress in order to receive this free Dior Diamond Lipstick Case, and honestly it was well worth it for the lipstick case alone as it’s pretty stunning, so while I wasn’t expecting too too much from the lipstick I must say it’s pretty great, and at a very reasonable price point too! I swatched all the shades before settling on Pink Express, a shimmery pearly shade that’s pinky with some rose tones to it.

The shade is a little brighter than it appears to be in the photo above–pinks are tough to photograph! The new Dior Addict formula feels very lightweight and somewhat slick and slippery on the lips, yet manages to stay put for hours on end. I wore my Dior Addict in Pink Empress a few days back and it lasted through a light snack, tennis and basketball, and dinner.

Dior Addict, while not really drying, isn’t all that moisturizing either. I’d say that my lips remain comfortable while sheathed in this pretty pink shade, but not really hydrated.

It’s actually a softer pink in person–the close up below is a much more accurate color representation.

My mother and I both happen to be big fans of Dior lipsticks~they come in a great range of shades and formulas, and the packaging is always absolutely beautiful. These are the types of lipsticks that you’d be proud to pull out and reapply at any time. At $26 I really think that they’re very decently priced, and considering that they’re lightweight yet pigmented, have great shimmer and shine, and are long lasting, I don’t see why you wouldn’t want to check these out!
