I hope you all enjoyed a great Christmas! I for sure did, and after a couple of days of food marathon and lazing around, I’m ready to get back on track! It feels right to finally start talking about spring collections as well, and today I’m showing you a really friendly and adorable coral lipstick, Dior Charmante (437) Dior Addict Lipstick!
I won’t dwell too much on packaging, since by now I assume most of you are familiar with the packaging of Dior Addict Lipsticks. It’s chic, sleek, and functional: I wouldn’t ask for more!
Charmante is a soft peachy coral. Like other Dior Addict Lipsticks I have tried, it leans sheer, and the texture feels like a lip balm. The finish is very juicy and shiny. Charmante wears comfortably for around 2 hours and a half on me. Even though it doesn’t resist well to food and drinks, it can be slicked on so easily without a mirror that I am not too bothered!
Here is how it looks swatched. I know it looks so sheer that it seems almost colorless, but even on my rather pigmented lips it makes a visible difference:
I might have mentioned that I carry next to makeup in my bag, but Charmante has already earned its place there (along with Chanel Troublant). With my warm skin tone, pulling coral off is normally rather easy, but even then, sometimes it doesn’t look right without a bit of blush. Charmante however, works just as well alone as it does with any makeup look you want to wear. Smokey eye? No problem. Understated everyday look? Bring it on. Just a bit of color to look nicer at the supermarket? Done. I have problems thinking of a scenario in which it wouldn’t fit!
Here I’m wearing Charmante with the eyeshadows in Dior Chérie Bow Rose Poudré, Diorblush Rose Bonheur/Pink Happiness. You’ll see these two soon enough as well!
Bottom line: Dior Charmante Dior Addict Lipstick wears comfortably and offers just a pinch of soft coral that is perfect for spring. The peachiness in Charmante makes it easier to wear than a more orange coral, and the juicy balm texture makes application a breeze. Let’s face it: most of the time I don’t need more than an adorable and easygoing coral to brighten up my day!
What do you think? Is Charmante calling your name? Do you have an everyday coral?
