Currently Obsessed: Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss for Spring 2016.

I think I have gone on and on about how much I love lipgloss. In fact, you can see all of my lipgloss posts here: Lipgloss Posts on Beautiful Makeup Search. To date, I have mentioned lipgloss over 200,000 times on the blog - that's a lot! The latest trend in lips is matte. So when a new, true glossy lipgloss arrives on the scene I get excited! I am very excited and quite obsessed with the newly relaunched Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in its completely new reformulated and reimagined formula. It truly is the ultimate lip gloss offering a ton of shine, color and a whole lot more!

Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss features a new glossy formula that delivers high-watt shine in 18 new shades. What's equally exciting and makes this gloss different from the rest is that the formula is ultra-hydrating and plumping — it's really like no other gloss I've ever tried before. The secret to the formula is Dior's Hydra-Volume Complex with hyaluronic acid spheres that captures water into the lips for an instant plumping and deep moisturizing effect. This makes the lips look more plump while they feel moisturized. It does this while adding that super, high shine to the lips.

Dior didn't stop with the formula; there are three shine finishes to Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss. Inspired by Dior runway designs you will not only choose color, keep the finishes in mind: Sparkling, Watery, and Iridescent.

Sparkling - These are ultra-concentrated sparkly shades that adorn lips with saturated pearls to reflect light. They feel a bit gritty on the lips as they are filled with shimmer.

  • Gems
  • Spring Ball
  • Princess
  • Shock
  • Fancy
  • Diorosphere
  • Ultradior
  • Everdior

Watery - These are easy to wear glossy shades that are more, clean, see-through and saturated.

  • Nude
  • Tell Me Dior
  • Cruise
  • Paradise

Iridescent - These shades take on a new dimension as they are infused with contrasting or tone-on-tone pearls. These almost look different depending on the light you wear them in.

  • Fantaisie
  • Pearl
  • Reflected
  • Mirrored
  • Diorama
  • Cosmic

I love the glossy shine and beautiful shades in the Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss collection. The plumping effect is subtle in the Addict Ultra-Gloss, but it is definitely there and something that I notice and like over an average gloss. The hydration is felt and it lasts.

Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss sells for $30 each online at as well as your favorite department store makeup counters such as Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Dillard's.
