Dior Mayday Addict Lipstick & Offshore Addict Gloss

Dior Addict Lipstick 651 Mayday

Make a statement this summer with *Dior Mayday Addict Lipstick! Besides the juicy jelly shine that is Dior Addict Lipsticks‘ signature, you might be surprised just how much color Mayday packs! If that jelly shine isn’t enough for you, try layering Dior Offshore Addict Gloss on top!

Dior Mayday (651) Addict Lipstick

Dior Mayday Addict Lipstick (651. RRP in Belgium: 35,85 euros) is a pinkish red. I think it reads rather neutral. It has some delicate subtle shimmer, and it delivers nearly opaque coverage with one swipe!

Mayday wears for about 4 hours. It wouldn’t survive a meal, but it does leave a bit of stain. It is somehow hydrating, and definitely one of the most saturated Dior Addict Lipsticks I’ve seen!

Here is how Mayday swatches. Left: one pass. Right: built up.

This is how Mayday looks on its own:

Just in case you need more sparkle, try Dior Offshore Addict Gloss (412. RRP in Belgium: 31,60 euros)!

Offshore is a sparkling pale rose gold.

Can you see how much shimmer there is?

Once sheered out, you don’t really see that much color anymore, so basically it adds a hint of warmth, some mirror shine, and a lot of sparkle! It is hydrating, and the shimmer doesn’t feel scratchy on the lips.

Dior Transat summer 2014 FOTD

That’s the lip part of Dior Transat for you! I might or might not be eyeing Cruise, which is a coral… But then again, I have two more coral Dior lippies here that I haven’t even showed you yet!

    That one really aught my eye. It’s a gorgeous shade, and feels very nice on the lips. It’s the first of the Addicts that I’ve enjoyed enough to seriously considering adding to the stash – but figured I’ve already got a lot of reds I might just be able to sit ths one out :p

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha I like Addicts for summer, but Addict Extremes are more up my alley!

  • http://wadeashore.blogspot.com/ Caise

    what a lovely shade! it looks much lighter on your lips though, my lips are pretty dark and it would probably look darker on me

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Daria, I think it’s that and also the skin tone. Things tend to look lighter on me. Maybe that’s why I tend to favor vibrant/moderately pigmented lipsticks ;)

  • http://www.thepaintedrogue.wordpress.com Syirael

    Dior glosses are *so* shiny. I’m pretty sure you could use them to do some sort of semaphore on moonlit mights. Morse code, maybe? Reflecting the light of the moon alone?

    That lipstick is a beautiful colour! I’ve never tried that particular line, but you’re tempting me (again)!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha I’ve never tried :p Dior Addicts could vary quite a bit in terms of pigment levels, but I think all of them have this jelly shine!

  • http://kissandmakeupsbeautyblog.com/ Kiss & Make-up

    I’ll pass on the sparkle, but how pretty is Mayday!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Yeah I was really surprised just how pigmented it is!

  • http://papayapieces.com/ Sofia

    I don’t know why, but I like the name of the lipstick Mayday, it just makes me giggle. Oh, I like the colour too! On the other hand Offshore is the type of light transparent sparkly gloss that I’ve never bought. I’ve had glosses like this is free mini samples over the years but unless worn over a lipstick, I don’t think its brightens up my colour… Though come to think of it, it might be good for summer when I’m a bit more tanned, hmm.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha yeah I wanted to shout it over and over again ;)

      I have the same thing with sheer sparkling glosses. The problem is I like how pretty they look layered, but most of the time I only have the time to grab one thing and zoom out of the door!

    the Dior is beautiful!

  • valerie

    great look! Love the lipstick color !

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, girl! It’s definitely one of the most (if not the most) Addict Lipsticks I’ve tried!

  • http://www.beautyfrontline.com/ Beauty Frontline

    Lip color is excellent! xo

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It’s nice to see something that is not just MLBB for summer! I feel that is often the trend.

  • Icaria

    Mayday! Mayday! Sunny looks too pretty again!!! :D No sparkle for me but that red is stunning and I love the sheerness of it oh and the name! I could buy it just for that! :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha thanks, Helene! It’s actually not sheer at all! It’s very pigmented, but it has the signature Addict jelly shine!

      • Icaria

        Oh I must need glasses then because on my monitor the color doesn’t look opaque iykwim. I mean it’s red but not a heavy one so I guess that’s why it kinda looks sheer. I hope I’m making sense. :)

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Hey Helene, yes that makes sense! It’s not “opaque,” but neither is for example Guerlain Rouge Automatique. Still, the color payoff is satisfactory. Am I making sense? ;)

          • Icaria

            Total sense Sunny! :)

  • http://redhotjillypeppers.com/ Redhotjillypeppers

    Mayday looks great ! I’m getting more and more into lipstick but I’m not there just yet :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      YES! I’m so glad to hear you’re warming up to lipsticks! Maybe you’ll get there one day!

  • Lily

    I haven’t been to the Dior counter for months! I need to go check out all these great new things :-)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lily, oh you should! There’re many great new things to check out!

  • http://www.bellachique.be/ Teri

    Oooh, I really love Mayday on you, it’s such a pretty shade. And the finish is really pretty too!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Teri! It’s such a nice jelly finish, and it’s pigmented at the same time!

  • rachlovespenguins

    The name beckons me as well. Too many Dior pretties lately! :D

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I know! I still have several nail polishes to show you! Wearing Yacht and Sailor on my nails today :)

      • rachlovespenguins

        Yacht wants to come sit on my shelf. It tells me so every time I “window shop” online. I’m trying not to listen. lol
        I told you that I had a problem with grungy purple nail polish. Well the same also applies to nude and taupe. In fact there’s a spectrum! Nude – grungy nude leaning taupe – taupe- grungy taupe leaning purple – grungy purple! And if that sounds absolutely nuts then just blame the polish fumes. They’ve addled my brain. :P

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Hahaha oh if you’re into nudes/taupes, check out the new Dior Vernis. I think Trianon and Palais Royale are right up your alley!

          • rachlovespenguins

            You would definitely be correct in that thinking. My first “ooooooooooo pretty!” reaction to the PR for those turned out to be Palais Royale! I am drawn to that colour like a moth to flame, hahaha. I also think Junon looks rather striking.

          • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

            Oh yeah, Junon as well! There are several of these “neo grays” in the new line. I saw Palais Royale on someone and I was like “GIMME THAT!”

          • rachlovespenguins

            Hahahahaha I’m SO glad I’m not the only one to have that reaction!

  • expatmuaddict

    I like it!!

      Mayday is a red that is easy to apply and easy to wear!

  • http://www.abeautifulzen.blogspot.ca/ jenn @Abeautifulzen

    like as well! the glittery gloss makes a nice ‘topcoat’ for the lips. its not overwhelming.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Jenn! Glosses look SO nice in photos! I should layer more in real life!

  • http://theconsciencefund.wordpress.com/ Divya

    Oh the lipstick is stunning! Just the kind of color I get drawn to! And you look so pretty in these pictures!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Divya! You should check Dior Transat out!

  • http://beautyreflectionsblog.com TracyBeautyReflections

    Wow that is a saturated Dior Addict for sure! Looks perfect on you!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Tracy! Yes it’s really saturated! One pass is all you need!

  • http://beautyreductionista.blogspot.ca/ Liz

    I almost shelled out for the Addicts but am holding off for Guerlain summer to land. Ugh, so many beautiful things, I am DYING this month.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha same here! I’m still thinking about more Rouge G’s… :p

  • Dominique33

    Mayday looks very pretty on you !

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Dominique! I think the finish makes it easy to wear :)

      • Dominique33

        Yes indeed, I purchased it today, it is so bright compared to the other Dior Addict lippies I have ( pink, nude or coral ), and I picked up both Shimmer powders and…. both quints ! It was not planned at all I must say but they are really pretty. What a beautiful collection, many girls and women stared at it at the Dior counter, worth buying every item ( almost every item^^ ) I think.

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Oh yay! That’s a great haul! I hope you’ll enjoy everything!

          I swatched Sundeck, and it’s painful to walk away. I’m just pretty sure I have similar shades to all five to actually make the purchase ;)

          • Dominique33

            Thank you Sunny, I tried everything I think, I love the 2 powders and the quints even if Sundeck is dupable ( I suppose it is ? ^^ ), as for Mayday it’s a very pretty shade and I don’t think I have such a shade and texture, my Dior Addict ou DA Extreme lipsticks are in the pink/coral/nude range in fact. Transat is one of the greatest summer 2014 collection, 2012 Croisette was beautiful, Bird of Paradise was beyond beautiful and Transat is just classy, so elegant. Every item is worth the splurge, it was not the case with Trianon I think although it was impressive too.

          • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

            Hey Dominique, I’m glad you’re picking up stuff that adds variety to your collection! I like Transat more than Trianon, but then again spring collections are never my favorites. I think it has a lot to do with my skin tone ;)

  • http://themakeuptrain.com/ Christina

    I like the way Mayday looks on you. I think Offshore might work well as a lipstick. I hope Dior is reading this. :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Christina! Actually we are getting an Addict Lipstick here that is somehow similar to Offshore, but I didn’t see that in the US press info :(

  • http://www.hellojaa.com/ Jaa

    Offshore is so pretty! I normally don’t like sparkly lip gloss but I might have to make an exception this time! Love the super glossy finish, too!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Jaa! Dior makes great glosses, and Offshore is no exception ;)

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    LOVE Mayday! I just bought a color like that though T_T And that Dior gloss…MINE.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha which one did you buy?

  • http://www.pinklavenders.com/ Rainy Days & Lattes

    OH this is just love! I love the gloss…love love LOVE how it shimmers so prettily~!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      You should check Offshore out if you like SPARKLING stuff :)

  • http://www.lenallure.com/ Lena L

    Mayday is really pretty on you! A perfectly lighthearted red lipstick for summer. :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Lena! It’s pigmented, but the jelly finish makes it much “lighter” indeed!

  • http://lipstickintheattic.blogspot.com/ Judith

    I love the lip color, but I’m always afraid to use expensive lipstick, I only use them for special occasions!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha but it takes SO long to finish a lipstick (at least for me)! You should use it if you like it!

  • http://makeupbyeesha.blogspot.com/ Eesha

    That’s a lovely shade. I love sparky glosses that are not too gritty! I may get this one soon :-D

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Eesha, nope I can’t feel much at all! You should definitely check Offshore out :)

      • http://makeupbyeesha.blogspot.com/ Eesha

        Hey … thanks for visiting my blog and your lovely comment. xx

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          You’re welcome, Eesha! I always visit back! It’s nice to discover new blogs :)

  • http://www.vibrantbeautyblog.com/ Jennifer Monforton

    Ooh, loving the colour of that lipstick especially! So fresh and pretty :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jennifer, Mayday is definitely an easy to wear red that still has a lot of impact!

  • http://makeuptricksandtips.blogspot.com/ fiona furtado

    Mayday looks so pretty on you!! I haven’t tried this range from Dior, and I think it’s time I give this a try.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Fiona! I personally prefer Addict Extremes in general, but some Addict lipsticks are great (because I like pigment, but Addict lipsticks can vary quite a bit in terms of pigment)!

      • http://makeuptricksandtips.blogspot.com/ fiona furtado

        Yeah the dior addict extreme are packed with more pigments…
