Hey guys, it’s Nicole. Again. Like everyday on here. And today I’m coming at you with another Dior related review. Today I’m going to review the Dior Addict Lipstick in the shade 623 Not Shy. I bought this a while ago when I went shopping in Amsterdam and was loaded on coupons and gift cards. The Dior Addict lipsticks are definitely my favourite kind of Dior lipsticks and I didn’t have many yet. Therefore I felt like I just really needed to expand that collection. Obviously that’s not a very difficult task for a shopping addict like me so that’s what I did. I’ve been testing it for a while now which means that today is review-time. If you’re interested in finding out more about this stunning Dior Addict Lipstick, make sure you continue reading this post!
The Dior Addict Lipsticks come in this super fancy looking packaging. The box is all shiny and silver and has Dior Addict written on it in red. When you open up the box, the lipstick reveals itself. It comes in a very shiny packaging as well. A very elegant and Dior-like packaging. The packaging is silver and has the Dior logo on the front. The top of the lipstick -or the bottom, depending how you look at it- is rounded and has the initials of mister Christian Dior on it. It all looks super elegant and chic. Just like Dior is. A chic and elegant brand.
To open up the lipstick you pull on the rounded part of the lipstick. The rectangular part functions as the ‘lid’ or the ‘cap’ of the packaging, and the rounded tube that reveals itself holds the lipstick. This part is twistable and very easy to use. When you look at the lipstick in the tube from the top you can see the initials of our beloved Christian Dior in it again. How fancy and chic!
All in all I think that the packaging looks really, really good. It’s a very fancy and luxurious packaging and I think it’s very Dior-like. I also think that it stands out compared to other packagings, so it’s easy to find in your collection. The only downside might be that you can’t tell which colour will be inside from the outside. It does say it on the bottom but in such a small font, even I struggle reading it.
Dior Addict Lipstick 623 Not Shy – €37,50
Having said that, let’s have a little chit chat about the colour I chose. The colour I bought is called 623 Not Shy. Not Shy is one of those in between colours. I have to say that my experience with these Dior Addict lipsticks used to be that they are sheer and therefore I thought this was going to be a very natural shade. However, in real life it’s a bit more intense and pigmented than I expected, which makes it a bit more than just a nude. It’s a really pretty wearable rosy colour. It’s definitely not a super pigmented lipstick, but it’s not as sheer as for example the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks. That’s what I’m trying to say. But because it’s not fully pigmented even this shade is still super wearable for everyday.
According to Dior these Addict lipsticks ‘usher’ them into a new lip makeup era. It’s supposed to be a breakthrough creation of a lipstick that boasts a hydra-gel core with a top coat effect for sensational mirror shine. Concentrated in the shape of a ‘CD’ at the center, the ultra-moisturising soft core runs the full length of the lipstick. Application after application, it works like a top coat, adding an extra dose of shine and colourfastness with unbelievable comfort. This lipstick is supposed to be easy to apply, it should glide-on and blend seamlessly with the lips. The hydra-gel core should melt with the colour to give the instant effect of a lipstick plus top coat.
They do make it sound very, very impressive. I like the idea of the moisturising core that’s supposed to be in it. This would mean that it will make your lips feel smooth and add a nice colour at the same time. I’m also a huge fan of the shiny finish and the comfortable application they are promising us!
As you can tell the lipstick does have a bunch of pigment but it’s also a bit sheer at the same time. I feel like in real life it’s a bit more pigmented than it might look on the picture, but it’s definitely a full colour lipstick. That’s not what this is supposed to be and I like that about it. However, if you do like your lipstick to be super pigmented, this is an important thing to keep in mind when it comes to this lipstick.
Like Dior told us in their claims this lipstick is very easy to apply. It does indeed glide on to the lips and it does feel super hydrating. Because of that this lipstick is really comfortable to wear and it does make my lips look very smooth. All dry patches disappear because of the hydrating benefits this lipstick has and my lips look gorgeous. I do think that that’s a big pro.
In terms of staying power this lipstick did actually surprise me quite a bit. Like most of you guys probably know already these shiny, glide-on lipsticks usually never last. Now I’m not going to tell you that this lasts just as long as a matte lipstick would, but for what it is, it’s not disappointing me at all. It stains the lips a little bit and therefore you will be left with a nice pink lip colour for a solid 5-6 hours.
All in all I do really love this new addition to my Dior lipstick collection. These Addict lipsticks are by far my favourite out of the ones they have and I love how comfortable this is to wear. It’s super smooth and silky feeling on the lips, it’s hydrating and I love its shiny finish. I also really like the fact that it’s a rather sheer lipstick and the colour is very unique. In conclusion I think this is a great lipstick and if you love comfortable lip products like I do, I do highly recommend giving one of the Dior Addict Lipsticks a try!
And that brings us to the end of today’s post. Thank you so much for reading it and be sure to let me know which lipstick is your absolute favourite!
