Sparkly Perfection: Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Tiara

The one makeup item I can never get enough of is lipstick. I’m pretty sure I have a lipstick addition. Lip gloss on the other hand I don’t tend to get too excited about. However, every once in a while I find a lip gloss I fall in love with. Actually to be honest for some reason I’ve really been enjoying a glossy lip a lot more recently, which is definitely new for me because usually I’m all about matte lips.

One of those lip glosses I just cannot get enough of at the moment is the Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in the shade Tiara. I currently own three Dior lip glosses and surprisingly I really like all of them because they’re creamy and hydrating without being sticky and gross like lots of other lip glosses out there.

While browsing through the aisles of one of my favorite makeup stores together with my grandma a couple of weeks ago I stopped at the Dior counter to look at their highlighters. But then it was their lip glosses that caught my eye, especially the shade Tiara because of the beautiful sparkles in this gloss. I have a thing for all things glitter so it was like it was calling my name!

Basically the shade Tiara is a clear lip gloss with lots of pretty glitter spectacles in it. However, on the lips you don’t feel the glitter at all. The gloss applies very smooth and feels so nice on the lips. No stickiness at all! Dior actually markets these as more than just your average gloss but also as a lip plumper at the same time, because these glosses contain hyaluronic acid, which will keep your lips moisturized and make them more plump. While cosmetic companies often make big claims that their products don’t live up to this lip gloss really does do what it promises. It’s incredibly moisturizing and it does make your lips look more plump. I love wearing this on days when my lips are dry and need a break from matte lipstick.

As always here is a swatch for you. Now I feel like this swatch really doesn’t do this amazing lip gloss justice because it is so pretty and sparkly in the most perfect and subtle way. I think this is the type of product you just kind of have to see and try for yourself. It looks very beautiful on its own for a very toned down simple look or you can layer it on top of just about any color of lipstick to add some shine and sparkle to your look.

I’m aware Dior lip glosses are quite pricey but to me they are totally worth it. So if you’re someones like me, who’s usually not so much into lip gloss this might be the gloss for you! I’m definitely planning on adding a few more shades of these glosses to my collection!

Are you a gloss or a lipstick person?

Love,

Sophie
