As I continue the inexorable aging process, I have come to find that matte lipsticks are the enemy. The older I get, the chalkier they look against my skin, and that is a look that does me absolutely no favors.
Enter Dior Addict.
I recently purchased this product in Diorkiss, which is billed as a “sheer dark pink.”
Why yes, yes it was.
But what I like most about this lipstick is its reflective properties. I adore the shimmer this product imparts, and nary a fleck of sparkle anywhere.
To me, this is the major drawback with the flecked lipsticks, wherein the flecks tend to migrate after a while. Like, to right on my chin. I love the way they look, but not necessarily after eating a sandwich. Maybe it’s just me?
Which brings me back to Diorkiss. This particular lipstick shade has no flecks, the shine is all from whatever secret (and with my luck, probably toxic) material they put into it.
But I love it still.
Due to its light nature, this product can and will wear off sooner than a matte lipstick.
It’s a tradeoff I’m willing to make.
