With my recent review & comparison of Dior Addict Iconic versus Chanel Rouge Coco Shine, I have to admit that I do prefer Coco Shine; Nonetheless, Dior Addict Iconic lipstick is still an adorable range. You will be spoilt by the enormous shade selection……
…… and its chic packaging
3 shades in the collection are said to represent 3 sides of Kate Moss: Diorkiss, embodies the “ Rock Icon ” style of skyscraper heels, oversized sunglasses and sexy jewelry; The “ Doll Icon ” style is represented by Beige Casual, the perfect nude to mix with pearls and a light pink Lady Dior, while Red Carpet speak for the bold, “ Glam Icon ”.
The first ever Dior makeup product was a lipstick, which extended the Dior universe by adding a final touch of colour to a look. Simple, audacious and ultra-feminine, colourful lips have since become a Dior trademark.
The new Dior Addict lipstick allows for a simple shine with high impact, coat after coat. Encased in a silver base overlaid with a gleaming transparent case, this wonderful lipstick features a completely new, sensorial formula providing vibrant colour and shine.
The light melting texture is sensual in application, with 25% less wax than a classic lipstick; It contains a “Mirror Shine” gel, giving a sheen and transparency and ultra hydration to your lips that come in a runway collection of 44 shades. The key ingredient, Mirror Jelly, brings shine, volume and hydration to the lips. This unique ingredient is made up of two components: polymers that provide a long-lasting, second-skin effect with exceptional hydrating and softening properties and silicone oil, which creates a light, smooth texture.
This lovely limited edition T shirt was featured in Sandra Bauknecht’s blog. John Galliano has drawn a portrait of his muse, Kate Moss, on a limited series, collector’s edition T-shirt, designed exclusively for the launch of the Dior Addict lipstick. Lucky her !
Here is my swatch of Dior Addict Vintage ( on left ) against Chanel Coco Shine Deauville (on right ). I am sure I will treat myself more with Dior Addict Iconic, especially when I need something more opaque & creamy.
