Lipstick Lover Review: Dior Addict 'Basic'

There has been so much hype surrounding the new Dior Addict lipsticks, and the gorgeous Kate Moss advertisements. Most reviews that I have seen of this have been the 'Kate Moss shade', which I may have chosen myself. My mum bought this for me on her recent holiday to Grand Canaria (hauled here) and I am so glad as I absolutely love it! :o)
Colour/Scent? This shade is the most subtle of the collection a soft rose pink with silver shimmer. I cannot detect any scent whatsoever!
Consistency? Sheer, almost comparable to that of a highly pigmented balm. According to Dior, they have a new 'mirror jelly' formula, designed to 'bring shine, volume and hydration to the lips'
Longevity? Due to the light feel of these, you would think it wouldn't last long at all, however they definitely last 1hr+.

Pigmentation? Not huge, however in one swipe (see above swatch) you can see the shimmer. In the lips shot below, I have layered this lipstick twice, maybe three times.
Packaging? Stunning! This is without a doubt the most luxe looking lippie I own/have ever seen! The casing looks clear to begin with, but in daylight as above it has this gorgeous rainbow effect.

Price? £22 / €28
Other shades available? 44 in all! This even shocked me :o)
Available from? Debenhams, with 10% off at the moment!

The Verdict... I love it! To be honest, I am not going to reach this for a colour pop. However I think this is the closest to a 'nude' that I will be comfortable wearing so it is ideal for when I decide to wear striking eye make up. It may be the photo, however I think this looks totally comparable to MAC Angel, what do you think? I would love to say that I will be buying more of the gorgeous shades available, but they are too pricey to collect them all!
Let me know your thoughts, I would love to hear them! <3
Love H xoxo


  1. Thats gorgeous, really suits you x

  2. This lippie looks great on you. I'd go as far as to say it's YOUR colour :-)


  3. That looks lovely on you! Ive noticed a buzz around Dior today, I think its a sign I need to go to my nearest counter asap! ;) xxx

  4. hannah i LOVE this on you! im happy its not so "barbie" pink because those colors will skew the color of your skin tone. this stays true to your beautiful skin tone and adds a bit of shimmer! i may have to check it out!

  5. I love it! But, I actually have a tinted lipbalm which looks like this but is so much cheaper... although it didn't come with the awesome packaging! xD

  6. @nikkay thank you <3

    @missA I agree! Thank you, I think it's my 'lips but better' colour :o) xx

    @Natalie haha beauty blogger bad influence :o) they are gorgeous lippies though! Xxx

    @tat thanks so much love :o) x

    @Megan thanks so much Hun, yeah I agree sometimes the brights are too much of a contrast especially as I am so (fake) tan... I love this so much :o) thanks Hun xxx

    @rosh I'm not surprised, this looks easily dupe-able but the packaging is sooo luxe! :o) xxx

  7. Ah I love this colour on you Han, looks so nice! Love the packaging of Dior lippies too! xxx

  8. Looks really nice on you. I saw these in store and I agree that the packaging is gorgeous! x

  10. I have the Dior Addict Rose déshabillé. I really like it, it's a neutral pink with light shimmer. Really pretty. But it thinks it doesn't last very long...
    Yours is really pretty, it really suits you! ;)

  11. That looks gorgeous on you, I love the look of these but I always avoid them as I know I'd spend a fortune! I love the pink one on Kate Moss in the ad
