I have always loved Dior Products. Aside from the unbelievable quality, there's something very glam and classy about them. The packaging always shines trough and I feel great when I wear Dior. It's a boost of confidence, like wearing a Versace coat or a pair of Jimmy Choos. There's a lot of things to consider when buying makeup, and the way it makes you feel is equally important. So it's definitely worth the money.
One of their newest products is the Addict Fluid Stick, which is a an opaque gloss that looks and feels like a lipstick. A spectacular lip formula that gives you the benefits of a shiny gloss and pigmented lipstick into one color-rich product. Absolutely fabulous!
I usually stay away from gloss because it's too sticky or thick, and the lighter textures are too sheer for my taste; but this lipstick-gloss has full color, is non-sticky, and easily lasts up to 3 hours. It's very moisturizing and when you put it on it gives you a cool and wet feeling that is very refreshing. The colors are beautiful and vibrant, perfect for summer!
After about 10 minutes it "dries" leaving a no-makeup feel on your lips yet remaining very glossy and hydrating. Like I said, fabulous! And may I just add, the packaging is to die for. It looks like a lipstick on the outside and once you open it up, ta-da! it's a liquid!
The applicator is flat and thinned out at the end so the application remains precise.
A good trick I found with this lip product is to refresh any kind of lipstick, even the matte ones, as those may dry up your lips. If you apply it on top of a matte lipstick or liquid matte lipstick, it adds a little bit of moisture to your lips and once it dries it doesn't take away from the matte finish. It gently hydrates your lips so they don't feel chapped. Try it! I do it all the time and it works wonders.
This fluid lipstick/gloss is a definite BUY!
I give this product 5-out-of-5-lipsticks!!
