Today's Makeup - Dior Candide Lipstick

My name is Sandra and I am a lipstick-holic.

*sigh*

It's halfway through the January Spending Diet and I have thought long and hard about using one of my holiday gift cards on one pretty piece of Spring 2013 makeup. The brand of the culprit? Dior.

Dior is probably my favourite makeup brand at the moment. I find myself consistently reaching for their products in my daily routine and I love it. Their Spring 2013 Cherie Bow collection has some gorgeous pink/grey/silver shades and the cutest collector's edition palette. Three limited edition Dior Addict lipsticks were released in the range, and after some persuasion from some fellow makeup enthusiast friends (namely Rachel and Jess) I walked out with #436 "Candide".


It's pigmented (slightly more pigmented than YSL Sheer Candy lipsticks or the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks I own, for example) and glossy and the perfect shade of light neutral pink for spring. I added a tiny hint of Laura Mercier lip liner in Potpourri just to add definition to the edge of my lips, but did not fill my lips in with the liner.


The packaging of Dior Addict lipsticks is so pretty and sleek.

It lasts a good 2 hours on me, which is nice given the glossy formula. These lipsticks are glossy and not drying and the packaging is so beautiful, they are made for reapplying throughout the day. Here's the rest of the makeup I wore:


Face:
Chanel Fleur De Lotus Blush (was a Nordstrom exclusive, no longer available)

Eyes:
Clarins Nude eyeshadow
Ardell Demi Pixies lashes

Have you started playing with Spring makeup or are you still rocking the Fall/Winter shades?

  5. Yay! I'm so happy you picked this up and love it. It's such a pretty pink! I'm usually not impressed with the regular Dior Addicts (the Dior Addict Extremes, on the other hand, never cease to amaze me!) but I find this one to be more like the Extremes in terms of pigmentation! Love it :D

  10. Oh wow I really like this lipstick. In general I don't like wearing it because it's a little to heavy or the texture is a little too thick, but this one looks super pretty. I've never own anything from Dior except for the Miss Dior perfume, but I'm tempted to try this one out. Suits you so well!

    Great post :)

  12. This is a beautiful colour on you...

    Also--thankyou for opening this blog with admitting your addiction to lipsticks....it makes me feel A LOT better about my own increasing addiction to lipsticks. I find it so weird cause I used to be all "ew lipsticks are for old ladys"...well I guess I am an old lady now (at 26...makes sense)...cause I friggen LOVE them!

  33. That's such a pretty color on you! I'm still rocking winter trends, as I think dark lips look better on me, but I guess I better start experimenting with spring colors. Do you know what colors are supposed to be 'it' spring colors for 2013? I know in spring of 2012 it was corals, so I was just wondering. :) Thanks!

    P.S I'm a new follower and a new beauty blogger, so if you could check out my blog and give me some advice that would be great! Thanks!

  34. I LOVE this line of lipsticks! I've completely used up my colour in Diorkiss, the one Kate Moss wears in the ad. It also looks amazing on you by the way! Also just have to add that I love your eyes, they remind me of a bambi! Sorry bit random haha xx

  35. That really is a beautiful lipstick. I have trouble wearing lipsticks lately because my lips are so dry (due to some meds) and it's so sad because there are gorgeous colors like that just screaming my name! You look stunning :)
