Plump & circumstance: Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss

I’m not a huge fan of lipgloss.

Maybe it’s because I love colour that actually looks like colour, or maybe it’s the tell-tale feeling of stickiness, I just have never been a gloss girl… Until now.

Okay, so I’m not fully a glossy person, but I’ve been really digging Dior Beauty’s new Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss. Available in eight shades, with six of them being new to the line up, this gloss contains collagen micro-spheres to penetrate lips to plump and shape them, while also providing 24-hour hydration. Dior says that these increase your lip volume by 29 per cent and they are a hyaluronic lip treatment to stimulate collagen production and reshape the lips, at the same time, softening fine lines and wrinkles within 15 days.

I received seven of the eight shades and although some of them look very bold (coral and purple), they are all quite faint when you apply them, giving you a slight wash of colour.  When you paint them on, they have a mint flavour, which feels pleasant and like your lips are getting fuller.

There are two finishes to choose from, glossy and holographic. I actually like the holographic more since I feel like it’s a really pretty finish and it makes your lips look larger than just the gloss. You can wear them by themselves or over a lipstick; in fact, they are designed to be layered over the corresponding Lip Glow To The Max Balm, which I’ll be reviewing shortly.

These retail for C$42 and if you are a gloss girl, I highly recommend picking one up. My favourite shade is the Holographic Purple since it’s such a light colour and really makes your lips look stunning and full. As for actually making your lips look fuller, I find that glosses in general help to achieve this, so I’m not sure if it’s actually working, but I like how they have the claim (even if it’s only 29 per cent), and the mint definitely helps to trick your brain into believing that your lips feel bigger.

The price is high for a lipgloss, but I recommend picking one up since it is such a pretty finish, your lips feel moisturized, and best of all, it isn’t that sticky, which is a lot coming from me. Plus, you know, it’s Dior, and anything Dior just makes my heart skip a beat, so there’s that :p.

Have you picked up any of the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Glosses? What were your thoughts?
