For Fall 2016, Dior is embracing the warm earthy and rich red tones of the Eiffel Tower through a selection of gorgeous lipsticks for their new Skyline collection.
Dior is introducing several beautiful fall shades to their Dior Addict lipsticks as well as a stunning limited edition shade. Each lipstick will retail for CAD $43 and will be sold at all authorized Dior retailers.
The lipsticks are encased in the prettiest bullet ever despite the outer casing being made of plastic, the silver with the rainbow holographic effect is simply gorgeous.
I have 4 of them to show you all: Fusion, Black Tie, Urban and the limited edition shade, Sophisticated.
Fusion is a light and sheer almost coral pink shade that I’ve been using quite often. It’s been in my purse ever since I received it and has been well used. Despite it being marketed as a fall shade, I find that it looks great for summer too!
Urban is quite sheer, it’s a shimmery nude shade. I rather like the colour, it’s the perfect touch for a barely there makeup look but it doesn’t really show well on my lips unfortunately. It would definitely work better for someone with lighter lips.
Black Tie is the perfect wine shade. It’s a rich and deep shade which reflects fall well. It’s definitely an edgey colour but absolutely stunning as well. I love the bitten vampire look for fall and this is THE lipstick for that look.
Sophisticated, the limited edition shade, is a must have for any lipstick lover and collector. Unlike the other shades, this one is metallic!!! It’s a bronze coloured lipstick which I found really cool. I had never tried a metallic lipstick prior tohis one. The first thing that came to mind when I tried it was the Spice Girls and outerspace fashion. It’s also another bold colour but fashion is all about exploring new things. I will definitely be rocking Sophisticated once fall arrives.
Each lipstick is embossed with the CD logo in a contrasting colour which I personally find absolutely stunning! Though they do fade away with use, it’s so cool. The formula is the same as the other Dior Addict lipsticks. Super creamy and moisturizing. I find that the lipsticks feel more like a tinted balm rather than a lipstick as they are quite light and on the sheerer side.
Another thing I noticed was that due to the light almost airy formula, some of the shades don’t last quite as long as other lipsticks. The more pigmented shades tend to last longer but the light ones not so much.
These lipsticks are truly incredible.They are stunning and feel so natural. I’m constantly using them and I find them great for anyone who wants to wear a lipstick but do not want the commitment to bolder rich colours. I will definitely be repurchasing some of the permanent and more pigmented shades.
These pretty lippies are now available for sale at the Bay, Holt Renfrew, Shopper’s Drug Mart and Sephora. For any collector’s or metallic type of person, I’d snag Sophisticated before it’s gone.
Do let me know which shade is your favourite in the comments below!
Big thanks to Dior for their stunning products.
