I can’t allow a month to go by without a post on some lovely nudes, right?!
This time I have some good old Dior Addict Lipsticks to show you. The shades are #525 Vintage and #535 Tailleur Bar. These are some oldies but definitely goodies!
Dior made these lipstick back in 2011 with Lip Neutralizer™, a technology inspired by the makeup artists backstage at fashion shows, who before putting lipstick on the models, apply a light base of foundation to neutralize the natural colour of the lips to ensure the lipsticks’ true colour it’s sown at its true potential on the lips.
This is a new, high-shine lipstick formula with a lightweight, ultra-fine texture that glides on easily. Contains 25% less wax than a classic lipstick and they’re made with an innovative reflecting gel ( these are the technical deets! ). The effect lays in such a subtle transparency and magnifying glass effect which enhance shine, volume and color. They also manage to deliver intense moisture to plump lips and give brilliance, glamor and luster at the same time.
The shades are fairly sheer, but their true colour and shine really show when they are layered over a lip pencil and/or lipstick as you can see it features in another post I wrote a while ago. Link here!
#525 Vintage is a brown shade with mauve undertones and a pure finish, just a subtle shine, and a little “plumping”. On the other hand, #535 Tailleur Bar is a sheer, muted mauve less purple than Vintage, with shimmering highlights. Both shades were designed to go perfectly with any mood and with any fashion look, from timeless classic to cutting-edge trendy.
In one swipe they go on as sheer as to be fairly similar to the lips. In the picture above you can see them heavily swatched, to see them at their full potential.
What everyone call “my-lips-but-better”, you can find in these two lipsticks! Being so moisturizing the lasting power isn’t the greatest but they’re so easy to wear, so easy to apply – even if you’re on the go and again so, so moisturizing on the lips!…
Amazing, everyday options – if you ask me, and I definitely recommend them, even after all these years!
See you soon, beautiful!
