I won’t belabor the fact that you need SPF, and I won’t repeat that I believe physical sunscreen is the way to go. I won’t tell you again how difficult it is to find products that I deem “natural” and acceptable, and that I want to use. Instead I’m going to tell you about the product I’ve been using and loving ever since it came to my doorstep.

Spring 2016 Launch: Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Lipgloss- Pearl- 259 and Tell Me Dior- 369: Review and Swatches

2016 Dior Addict Ultra-gloss Plump up the volume

2016 Dior Addict Ultra-gloss Plump up the volume

Have you heard anything yet about Dior’s Spring 2016 (re)launch of Addict Ultra-Gloss? You know there is a Dior Addict Lip Gloss of course, but this is Ultra Gloss.

What’s the difference? Per Dior, Addict Ultra-gloss is a “lip plumper and gloss all in one.” It supposedly “produces a natural volume effect instantly and day after day.” That is because it’s “bursting with hyaluronic acid spheres that capture and retain the surrounding water.” It is meant to “quench lips, leaving them full and lastingly moisturized. With 70% mirror-shine stretch oils, Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss glides smoothly over the lips to create a spectacular glossy effect with a film so fine and comfortable you almost forget it’s there.” (These are not my words. Credit to Dior for phrases in quotation marks.)
