Lipstick Aventures Part 1 Review: Dior Addict Lipstick

As I posted recently, I went on a major lipstick haul, just to find a replacement for my all time favorite lippie, which is from Japan, Maquillage Perfect Glossy Rouge. It's quite expensive, except that I finally did find it at a reasonable price on Adam Beauty. By that time though, I had already started my lipstick search.

Today I will be featuring not one but TWO Dior Addict lipsticks. I present to you, 583 Backstage and 578 Diorkiss.



I had actually bought a Dior Addict lipstick about a year or two ago and while I thought that it was okay, I wasn't super impressed by it. Dior recently revamped the formula of this lipstick so I was excited to try it as I heard that it's much very moisturizing.

When I made my first purchase, I had forgotten to take my Maquillage with me so I couldn't do a color match with it. I tried the two above colors and Mai liked 583 Backstage, so I bought it.

lipstick on entire lip

It's a "my lips but better" color. I like it a lot although I realized after I got home that my Maquillage is much more pink toned, while this one is more of a mauve.

A couple of days later, Jess of Oh...pretty! blogged about 578 Diorkiss and how it is such a pretty pink that would probably match anyone. That was it! I just knew that I had to get it, especially since I did have a hard time deciding between the two colors originally.

entire lip (sorry for the messy application, I was in a rush)

The formula is much better than my 1st Dior Addict lippie that I bought. I think that it glides on and feels very moist, not sticky at all. It is nicely pigments but not overly pigmented. The color will last for several hours on me until I eat something. The moistness does dissipate over time but lips don't feel dried out. I'm loving both colors very much.

Yay, you got them! Kat, 578 Diorkiss looks absolutely beautiful on you! I can definitely tell from your lip swatch picture! I'm sure it instantly brightens up your complexion!

The texture of Diorkiss is so nice indeed! I have been wearing my Diorkiss 3 days in a row now, hehe... see how much I love it?! Sadly, I won't have the time to post a FOTD with it this week. :(

@Jess--Yup, I got them! Thanks for your suggestions when I was shopping around for lipsticks.

Will look forward to when you are able to post a FOTD. I know how hard it is to blog when you're so busy. Take care!

@evie--Thank you so much for your sweet comment! I love moisturizing lipsticks that are on the glossy, sheer side. Like a lipgloss but without the stickiness.

I hope that you'll do a review on the Chanel Coco Rouge shine. I'll be doing one too in the near future.

I'm loving 578 Diorkiss on you, it's a very flattering pink! Do you prefer MQ's formulation or Dior's?

Jennifer said...

i like Diorkiss on you! i actually prefer dior addicts (the new ones) over the rouge coco shines from Chanel :S

galpal.hi said...

@sugar sugar--Thank you! Diorkiss is really a nice lip color. I'm loving the new formulation over the old one.

galpal.hi said...

@Blair--Thank you! I believe that I prefer MQ's formulation a little better but mainly because the color goes on more sheer than Dior Addict.

@Jennifer--Thank you! Actually between Dior Addict and Chanel Rouge Coco Shine, it's kind of a toss up but I think that Dior Addict is just a tad bit ahead of Chanel.
