Review, Swatch - Dior Addict Lipstick Dior Kiss (578)




I am totally smitten with Dior Addict lippies now, I can't think of any better range if I am to buy more lipsticks. (Whether I should buy another lipstick or not, is not an issue here.)

It all started with Dior Addict Lipstick Dior Kiss.



I can tell you right off the bat I am not so crazy about the color itself, but it didn't stop me from collecting other variations from Dior Addict range.

A charming blogofriend once said Dior Addict lippies are like Pokemons.
I will say! ;)

Let's just have a moment to admire the packaging.



Dior Addict lipstick is a "hydrating lip color" that delivers shine and moisture with sheer to medium coverage.


I didn't really think much when I picked "Dior Kiss".
The description says "Sheer Dark Pink".
I like pink lipsticks and what could be more perfect than "Dior Kiss" if you're buying a Dior lipstick?


To me, Dior Kiss is a medium pink with coral undertone.
In all honesty, this color is a bit boring.
However, it is dark enough to show up on any complexion and perfectly neutral with creamy finish, which makes it one of those "universally flattering" shades. 


Dior Kiss shows up mainly pink on me.


The color builds up easily with another coat and it seems to look warmer that way.
It even matches the bright coral nail polish I am wearing in this picture. (Essie Flirt)



I initially thought Dior Kiss was identical to Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Romance, but Dior Kiss is much warmer.
The consistency and the color payoffs are quite similar although I prefer Dior Addict's formulation as it keeps my lips hydrated longer.

Interesting that I keep wearing Dior Kiss despite of my lack of enthusiasm for the color.
It is because I am totally won over by the formulation which seems to be so perfectly cut out for what I need in lipsticks.

The color is sheer yet vivid and it is quite long lasting for its kind. 
The lipstick feels weightless and silky on lips plus it keeps my lips moisturized. 
It has no scent. 
The packaging is beautiful. 
The price is acceptable for a higher-end.
Perfection.

The classic Dior lipsticks I remember were in the angled blue tubes and scented with something heavy, so eventually I took a years of break although there were some absolutely beautiful shades I enjoyed in the past.
Revisiting the lipstick range of Dior has been a pleasant surprise, and I must say it poses a possible threat to my wallet. ;)


Have you tried Dior Addict lippie range?
What formulation is your favorite?
Any color recommendation?

    1. Thank you, Tiffany!
      Lately, I'm only buying lippies withouth shimmer. If you like coral, you will love Dior Kiss. :)

  3. Can't go wrong with Dior lippies and pink lips suit you so much! Black Tie is one of my favourite shades. Even though it looks dark, it can also be sheered out. Love my Dior lipsticks!

      It is a perfect spring shade. I like that Dior Kiss has no shimmer. ;)

  5. Woohoo, I'm charming! <3

    They are like Pokemon. Just try to stop.

    I have a mini version of this! I agree - the color doesn't seem showstopping, but it's easy to wear and it looks so lovely on! Can't go wrong with Dior lipsticks, Lily's right!

    1. I wore this three days in a row. What is it with this color? Maybe I really like it. LOL

  6. Oh no, this ain't boring at all! In fact, now I want it! I think my favorite is Dior Addict Extreme, but I do own some Addicts that are beautifully glossy and so, so easy to wear!

    1. This color will suit you beautifully, Sunny!
      I was just surprised to see the coral undertone cause I thought it would be a cool pink. To think about it, I don't have anything like it so it is a good thing! :)

  7. I have the Dior Addict Glow and love it. Just the cute packaging is to die for. Dior kiss looks pretty red in the tube but looks pink on your lips. I really enjoy the moisturizing formula and can skip a lip balm afterwards.

    1. I love the Lip Glow, too! Honestly, it is very hard to pick a favorite from Dior Addict!
      I totally agree that I don't need to apply lip balm first with this lipstick. :)

  8. I am huge fan of the Dior addict lip glow products. I recently bought the coral lip glow for spring and I think it works better with my skin tone than the original pink. I also convinced myself that I needed the "Dormeuse - creamy pink" gloss and I love it!

    Dior's glosses are my favorite because they aren't sticky like most glosses.

    1. I just reviewed on Dormuese! It is so pretty, isn't it?
      Although I'm beyond my lip gloss wearing days, but I would be happy to pick up a few more Dior Addict gloss myself! The formula is so good. ;)

  9. Beautiful pinky coral color. Very pretty on your lips!

  10. Ack, so pretty! You look like the personification of spring. ;) But these always look super super sheer to me in person so I always pass. :x I'm going to aim for a Rouge Dior and eventually I'll be like you and Larie, collecting them all. LOL

    1. Aww what a nice compliment! Thanks, Liz <3
      Rouge Dior is great, too! If you like satin finish, that's the range you should go for! :)

    1. Oh, I considered Millie as well. It is a very pretty mauve, and I love mauve lippies!
      But really, the formula matters so much. I've only learned recently. ;o

    1. LoL. Thank you! Now I'm convinced that I really like the shade as well. ;)

  13. Lol at the pokemon reference - I want to collect them all too!! Diorkiss is a pretty shade, nothing out of the ordinary, but pretty nonetheless. Loving the look, sultry smoke wears amazing on you!

    1. Thank you! I like wearing grey or purple with coral-y lip colors. Sultry Smoke is one of the few matte shades that work great on me.
      Now, I am surprised to find out I like Dior lipsticks better than Chanel although I must say I still prefer Chanel packaging. Just to make a comparison. ;)

  14. Love it! And your little collection there is lovely! I really do mean to try more of their sheer lipsticks and balms soon, I've only ever tried their addict lipglosses and do love them! I too am a fan of sheer colors, its easy to wear and tend to be very consistent in texture!

    1. Thank you. ;)
      The problem is that little collection is going to be bigger soon.
      I'm looking forward to exploring different colors with different textures. Maybe next time I will try something with pretty shimmer.

  15. It's very pretty and subtle on you, I do like it! I like sheer lipsticks too, much easier to wear :)

    1. Yes, the color appears quite sheer once applied but also easily builds up.
      Love this lipstick! :)

  17. I don't have any Dior Addict lipsticks but I think it was seeing them newly released (with Kate Moss fronting the ad campaign) that triggered a lipstick addiction in me 2+ years ago. Ironic considering I have 80+ lipsticks now but none of them from the range that kicked it all off. Kiss looks like such a wearable and flattering everyday colour! Effortlessly elegant but still quite casual :)

    1. Well, Ms. Moss has that kind of powder. LoL.
      Check this range out if you like sheer lipstick. This and Shu Uemura are the best lipstick formulations that I experience lately.
      And you just summed it up about the color! Spot on and now I see why I keep wearing this color! :)

    2. Oops..not "powder", power. HAHA (wish I could edit the comments cause I make mistakes all the time ;( )
