This Spring, Get Sparkalicious with Dior’s New Addict Glosses in Diablotine & Princess!

Dior Addict Gloss Diablotine Princess 2013

(On my lips: Dior Princess Dior Addict Gloss)

It’s March, it’s March! Winter is officially over (or so I’d like to believe) and spring is here! This spring (the official launch date is in about 2 weeks), Dior is launching their new Dior Addict Glosses (RRP in Belgium: 30,71 euros). We’re looking at 24 brand new shades with 3 finishes including Glitter Fever (the four star shades, Diablotine, Princess, Spring Ball, Délice fall in this category), Dolly Pearly, and Pur Manifesto. Today I have Diablotine and Princess to show you!

(I really thought I matched the four star shades in Dior Addict Gloss and Dior Vernis for the photo, but in retrospect I’m not 100% sure anymore )

So what’s new? The Mirror Shine Complex and gel lip care formula infused with hyaluronic acid spheres can also be found in the current Dior Addict Ultra-Glosses. The new invention this time is the polarized crystalline microsphere that adjusts the light and gives the lips a mirror-shine finish.

I swatched these in the Dior office. The two on the left are two of the Glitter Fever star shades, and the other one is Pur Manifesto (which is basically a shimmer-free jelly).

The packaging of Dior Addict Glosses is indistinguishable from the Dior Addict Ultra-Glosses, and the tiny brush applicator also stays the same. I have always found the brush easy to use (it picks up enough product in one go, and achieving precision is pretty effortless), so I’m happy to see it again!

New Dior Addict Gloss 2013

Dior Princess Dior Addict Gloss is a sheer cool-toned pale pink with a rainbow of glitter, while Diablotine is a sheer warm orange coral with predominantly gold glitter (Dior calls this red, and I can see it’s more red when I wipe the swatch off with a tissue. On my skin however, it’s different).

The formula of Princess and Diablotine is just as soft, buttery, cushiony, and comfortable as the Dior Addict Ultra-Glosses I have tried. When I saw all the glitter sparkle, I was worried my lips would feel like sandpaper, but that wasn’t the case! Even when the gloss has pretty much dried out and worn off, I cannot feel the glitter at all. Considering how big the grain looks, this is an amazing achievement! At the end of the day, you might find a glitter particle or two that has strayed, but not more than that.

I get around 3 hours with Dior Addict Ultra-Glosses, but with these I can get around 4. They keep my lips nicely moisturized and plump-looking. Are they so much better than the existing version that you have to run out and replace your stash? No. Is this a great way of wearing glitter (I’ve never thought I’d say this)? Yes. My reservation about glitter isn’t so much about how it looks, but how much work it usually implies. With Princess and Diablotine however, wearing some sparkle on the lips is a pleasant and easy task!

This is how Diablotine looks on me:

As you can see, I get a slick of color, but an incredible amount of shine! In real life they sparkle even more with the light. I think they’ll look really hot layered over lipsticks as well!

If you want an idea about what other shades you can expect, here is the line-up:

Bottom line: I get an extra hour or so with the new Dior Addict Glosses, and this is like taking something that’s an A to an A+. Diablotine and Princess offer an extremely glossy shine and a lot of beautiful sparkle without the problems that are often associated with glitter (rough texture, traveling…). The pigmentation level isn’t high, though they do show even on my rather pigmented lips. If you are into sparkling glosses, check out the four new star shades (not showed here: Spring Ball, a nude, and Délice, a coral)!

Are you into sparkling glosses? Have you tried any of the existing Dior Addict Ultra-Glosses (I’m kind of glad Dior ended up going with a simpler name for the new version instead of trying to top something that is named ultra)?

Stay tuned because I have a delightful new Dior Vernis to show you tomorrow!

    Are they discontinuing the Dior Ultra Lip Glosses? I have a few holy grails … Just wonder if I need to Stock up;)

    • Sunny

      Hey girly, I’m guessing they are, though you can most probably find very similar ones in the new range!

  • Peggy Timmermans Visagie

    I actually like both colours and the shine! I wouldn’t wear it often on myself if too shiny but these still look very elegant!

    • Sunny

      I’m happy it doesn’t look frosty at all, and I like the mirror shine :)

  • L

    i love glitter love love love juust not on my face haha but these colors look so pretty&sounds so promising i just may have to give them a go!ive never tried any of the glosses but i do love their lipsticks quite a bit^^.

    • Sunny

      Haha I know what you mean. I just can’t deal with most glitter because it falls out and could be hard to removed, but the glitter in this one is problem-free! Do check them out when you can, girl!

  • beauties

    I love lipgloss 😀

    • Sunny

      Great! Check these out for some sparkle!

  • Mariella (Musing on Beauty)

    Sunny, I don’t know how you’re doing that (or WHY?) but you’ve been giving me a lot of Dior envy lately!

    • Sunny

      LOL sorry, Mariella! I’m really looking forward to what Dior has in store this year!

  • Strawberry Blonde

    Oh I love the look of Diablotine! Dior glosses are the most gorgeous formula

    • Sunny

      They’re really comfortable to wear, plumping (for me), and hydrating! I’d like to find one that has more pigment!

  • Kiss & Make-up

    I love love love these glosses!

    • Sunny

      They’re soooo sparkling!

  • jasmine

    • Sunny

      Yeah I’m glad it stays the same!

  • Teri

    They look really pretty! I’m more interested in the nail polishes though, I loved the one you were wearing!

    • Sunny

      Haha it’ll be up tomorrow! I’d love to check the other three out as well!

  • Meryl @ Memoiselle

    oOOhhhh that;s sooo prettyyy!! Loving that pink one! <3 I could never say no to cutie pink lips :)

    • Sunny

      LOL then you’re in good hands with Dior!

  • Chris

    Lovely! I can’t wait to try the new formula as I love the old one. :)

    • Sunny

      It’s really not that different (lasts slightly longer but just as comfortable), but the glitter is amazing!

  • Caise

    I need Princess in my life! <3

    • Sunny

      Haha glad to hear you found something you like! It’s got a rainbow of glitter!

  • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    I want to try one! I’ve never had one of their glosses. They look really pretty! But that brush looks so tiny!

    • Sunny

      Hey Tracy, it’s actually pretty easy to use! I prefer that to a regular doe-foot applicator!

  • Larie

    Squeeeee! They are so pretty, and I love the original formula, so I’ve got high hopes for this…I’m glad they took the “ultra” out of the name 😛 Diablotine is calling my name!

    • Sunny

      Haha yeah it’s much better than calling these super ultra glosses or something :p Do check these out!

  • Yolennie

    Wow they look lovely :) I’ve always wanted Dior lip products but can never bring myself to buying one :(


    • Sunny

      Just pick something that you will get a lot of use out of! That’s how I look at spending money on makeup. As long as I use it often enough I don’t think the money has gone to waste 😉

  • Angela @ The Unprofessional Beauty Blog

    I’m so excited for this because Dior Addict lip products are my favorites. They are definitely not cheap but I think it’s worth every penny.

    • Sunny

      Yaaay I’m glad to hear you are excited about the launch! I hope you’ll find shades that you can’t live without :)
