Dior Addict Lipstick in Model 564

I bought my first Dior lipstick in January as a birthday present to myself this year. I was shopping in Sephora in Doha, Qatar and spotted the iconic Dior makeup stand. I thought that it is now or never and made an impulsive lipstick purchase. I am not a pretentious shopper when it comes to makeup brands or even clothes for that matter. I buy things if they suite me, are good quality or look pretty, not for the famous brand name. I actually get very annoyed with shoppers who pull up their nose for drug store makeup to tell you the honest truth. I have always wanted to try a Dior lipstick, not for the name, but for the pretty beauty editorial pictures in magazines that I have been drooling over. Since I was in a different country, shopping in Sephora for the first time I thought I would splurge and spoil myself just a little.


So let me tell you a funny story. I went back to my hotel room after my shopping spree very delighted to try my Dior lipstick in private and parade around a bit. Low and behold I couldn't get the Dior lipstick open. I pulled, twisted and almost bit the lipstick top off. After many failed attempts and a sweaty brow later, I decided to Google ''how to open a Dior lipstick''. Oops! Apparently a Dior lipstick opens differently to many lipsticks. The inner case should be pulled out leaving the outer Dior see-through casing behind. Haha, I am so glad I figured this out in the privacy of my own stupidity and not in front of other savvy beauty gurus. Any way for any other lady who is going to be using a Dior lipstick for the fist time... Now you know! Lol

I purchased the Dior Addict lipstick in the shade Model 564 which is a pretty light berry pink shade. The lipstick is creamy in texture and glides effortlessly on my lips. It is a lip butter, lipstick and lip gloss all in one. The lipstick is soft, moisturising and feels luxurious on my lips. When I apply the shade it feels like I am using a lip balm and not a lipstick. It is similar to the Revlon lip butters but with a glossier look. I really am in love with this particular shade as it is similar to the natural colour of my lips and therefore enhances them making it look like a pretty shade of pink. This colour can be worn any time of the year but is best suited for spring and summer for a whimsical romantic look. The silver lipstick casing is very pretty and I actually want to keep it when my lipstick is finished to display it on my vanity counter.

I would definitely repurchase this shade of lipstick as I have really fallen head of heels for it. I too would love to try a deeper red colour in the Dior Addict range. For the high price I think this lipstick is worth splurging on. Not for the name Dior but for the beautiful and luxurious look and feel it has on my lips. If you are a huge lipstick lover like me then this one should definitely be on your wish list.

Thanks so much for reading Divas!!
Much love. Xxxx

Congratulations on your first Dior lipstick Desle! The color looks great on you. I did the same thing when I bought mine last year. HaHaHa So you're definitely not alone girl. I think mine was part of the Cherie Bow Collection. It was a pink, but it didn't do anything for me. You know how some light pinks can be. I'll have to try it again, with a more powerful color.

OMG girl, We have been following each other in Instagram for a while and for some reason it never dawned on me that we were not following each other on GFC or anything! I saw your comment on another blog and It just hit me! I tried to follow but I kept getting an error message :( I will have to try back. That lipstick is pretty, I am addicted to lipsticks too.

I love Dior's lip products as well. They really are something else, if you ask me, and I love the luxurious feel of them too!
