This Dior Lipstick is possibly my favourite piece of makeup I own. It’s definitely on the list! I love everything about it, and I knew from the moment I got it that it needed to be reviewed ASAP.
I got this lipstick when I had the privilege of attending the Cork Blog Meet 15, organised by Zoë from zoewithumlauts.com. The staff in Debenhams were so kind to us, and they were incredibly generous in giving us €50 vouchers to be spent in store that day. When I got this voucher, I knew immediately that I was going to spend it on a Dior Addict Lipstick, which I had had my eye on for ages which cost €34. ( I spent the balance on an Artdeco mascara.) I definitely made the right decision!
The shade of lipstick I got was 991, a deep purple/plum. I have a thing for dark purple lipsticks, I absolutely love them – you can never have too many! I love the colour of this one – it’s exactly what I look for in a lipstick. Another reason I’m singing it’s praises is because I really hate putting on lipsticks only to have them fade/ come off within an hour or two, whereas when I wore this one with Wet’n’Wild Lipliner it lasted the whole night!
Something I should admit is that I’m not the greatest at putting on lipstick, and this one wasn’t too easy at all! I found that I definitely needed lipliner to make the application look as good as possible, but once I had lipliner on it went on successfully. I also though it had an extremely pigmented finish, which is perfect for a dramatic nighttime look.
This lipstick, at €34, is a bit of an investment but it’s such good quality that it’s worth it in my opinion. I’d definitely recommend this as one to get your hands on this summer!
