Dior Addict Lip Polish Swatches & Mini Review

July 6, 2009
Dior Addict Lip Polish ($29.50)
To create ultrasmooth, ultrashiny lips backstage at fashion shows, pro makeup artists roll a cotton swab along models’ lips to gently exfoliate; then they apply petroleum jelly to prime the surface and multiply the shine of the gloss topcoat. Now, inspired by these backstage secrets, Dior introduces new Dior Addict Lip Polish. Enriched with moisturizing hyaluronic microspheres and ultrareflective mother-of-pearl pigments, the incredibly supple formula instantly recreates the impeccable, glowing look of the runway. The revolutionary and exclusive spin-on applicator, which picks up just the right amount of product and then rolls it uniformly onto the lips, provides a delicate massage that enhances the benefits of the formula.

Swatches (L to R): Radiance Expert, Fresh Expert, Glow Expert

I’ve been stalking Sephora’s Dior counters waiting for these juicy-looking gems to pop up so that I could check out this “revolutionary and exclusive spin-on applicator” for myself, and I have to admit that it’s pretty clever. The Addict Lip Polishes contain a rolling gloss brush head ~ basically the gloss head rotates when you glide the wand across your lips, making for smoother, more even application.

The formula itself is somewhere between Dior’s usual non-sticky light, semi-liquidy gloss formulation and a MAC Lipgelee, meaning they feel great on the lips. They have a really nice plush, non-sticky feel to them that I really like.

The Lip Polishes only come in three shades: Radiance Expert (a sheer beige that balances and illuminates the natural color of your lips), Fresh Expert (a sheer pink meant to restore lips’ youthfulness), and Glow Expert (a light color that adds sheer, warm color to lips to give luminosity and glow). They’re all sheer but gives lips a nice wash of color that’s great for the summer. While I don’t think that these are quite worth the $29.50 price tag, that doesn’t mean that I don’t want one for mself!

And this is completely random and unrelated, but check out this cute handmade candy! It was handmade at this amazing candy shop called Papabubble, where you can actually watch the employees make candy by hand. Watching them color, flavor and mold candy is so much fun, and it doesn’t hurt that they hand out warm, freshly made candy if you happen to be hanging around while they’re making some!
