Starlight, starbright: Dior Addict Halo Shine Lipstick

When I got in Dior’s new Dior Addict Halo Shine Lipsticks (C$49), they looked a little familiar.

When I pulled off the cap the first thing I noted was the beautiful star motif on the bullet itself, similar to YSL’s new Rouge Volupte Rock ‘n Shine lipsticks, which I reviewed last week. These lipsticks are new from the luxury beauty brand and are designed to give you shimmering colour, shine, a holographic finish, and smooth lips that will hydrate for up to 24 hours.

Available in 15 (mostly bold) shades, these lipsticks are stunning to apply, and thanks to the star centre, give you noticeable lips that shine and stand out.

The lipsticks are housed in a sleek silver casing with a knob at the end. Pull off the cap to reveal the lipstick, which features a star instead of the usual CD motif. I will say that although the star is beautiful, it does get all smudged after the first use, but it won’t affect how the lipstick applies (it just doesn’t look as pretty anymore).

I would say that these lipsticks apply more like a tinted balm since they definitely have more of a nourishing feel. Some of the colours I received were more faint in colour whereas others applied more pigmented. They are very comfortable to wear and would be great as an everyday colour.  I would put them as somewhere between a lipstick and a balm hybrid and would recommend picking up a lighter shade to keep on you (like Cherish Star) for when you want something on your lips that has more colour than just a clear lip balm.

At C$49, I think these are a little on the pricier side given that they aren’t even a true lipstick.  I think at this point you are paying for the brand name, but there is just something so luxurious about Dior that if you’re looking for a treat, then I would pick one up.  I hope they come out with more lighter shades, similar to their Dior Addict Stellar Shine Lipsticks, which are similar to these.

Have you tried any of the new Dior Addict Halo Shine Lipsticks?
