Sorry for the lack of blogging lately guys. I just finished my undergraduate degree several weeks ago and I’ve been just taking my time doing other stuff and I have been a bit behind on blogging! When Sephora had the 15% off VIB sale, the first thing that came to my mind was getting one of Dior’s Addict Glosses that just came out for the Spring 2013 collection. I was so excited to check out what colours they had!
A volumizing lip gloss with superb shine in a dizzying array of colors and finishes. Addict Gloss delivers brilliant shine and a volumizing effect in two-dozen dazzling shades. The smoothing and hydrating formula comes in three finishes: sparkling, pearly, or pure. Wear it alone or pair it with your favorite Dior Lipstick for an instant pop of color and shine!
I wanted a colour that didn’t have excessive glitter and something that would look great with any outfit, so I got Dior 576- Bed of Roses. Bed of Roses is a beautiful, pearly pink colour with micro silver shimmer in it. The packaging of the gloss is luxurious- with a clear body and a silver top, embossed with CD on top. It does have more product compared to Dior’s Lip Maximizer or Lip Polish.
At first I thought I would be thrown back with the silver particles in it, but once it was applied, it was barely noticeable. Don’t be fooled in thinking it’s a sheer gloss; Bed of Roses provides true pink pigment that will give you the perfect pink lip. Additionally, the scent is almost negligible, so if you have a finicky nose, don’t worry!
The lip gloss wand had brush tip and it was easy to apply evenly on the lips, although sometimes you get a little more product than you want on the wand. The formula is extremely hydrating and it covers any dry flakiness. It also lasted around 3-4 hours. Even after drinking and eating- the gloss may have disappeared, but my lips retain that moisturized feeling and a pink tint is left.
Have you had a chance to snatch any great lip glosses? 🙂
