|Dior Addict Hydra-Gel Core Mirror Shine Lipsticks ($35 each) at Nordstrom|
Jennifer Lawrence looks awesome!
I spotted the new Dior Addict lipsticks at my local Nordtrom this weekend. Labeled as "Hydra-Gel Core Mirror Shine" lipsticks, these lipsticks have a core of moisturizing gel that adds moisture and shine to the lips. This moisturizing gel is concentrated in a "CD" shape at the center of the lipstick and runs the entire length of the lipstick. Made up of three different oils, this ultra-moisturizing formula supposedly works like a top coat, giving shine as well as making the color last longer. I got some swatches to share, but I have to mention, there is some difference in the shade names between the Dior website and sites like Macys or Nordstrom. I have added in both the names where possible, but if you do notice any errors, please let me know, so I can update the post. Scroll on for swatches.

I haven't tried very many Dior lipsticks, and certainly not the Dior Addicts, so I cannot say how these would compare with the existing Dior lipsticks. The new Dior Addict Hydra-Gel lipsticks definitely do seem quite moisturizing and deliver glossy color. I like how the moisturizing gel core is embedded into the lipstick so it doesn't interfere with the lipstick application. There are a lot of colors to choose from, and the formula seems easy to wear. The formula of the lipsticks seems slightly sheer, and it's my favorite kind since I don't generally like heavy, opaque coverage, but of course, these can be layered over a lipliner for more coverage. These would make for the perfect lip colors to pair with a fall-winter daytime makeup look - lots of bright colors to cheer up dull, grey days and a moisturizing formula that will keep the lips hydrated and nourished. Do give the new Dior Addict lipsticks a try if you are looking for a glossy, shiny lipstick with a sheer pop of color.
