Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all doing well! So, i have an exciting lipstick post for you all today and i think it is a perfect product for the summer time and was actually released as part of Diors Cherie Bow Spring makeup collection. I was extremely lucky to have won the ever so lovely Liza's from Glam Beautys giveaway over on her blog and i won this absolutely gorgeous Dior Addict lipstick in Charmante #437. It is an absolutely beautiful lipstick, i have been really enjoying wearing it and i thought i would share it with you all today!
Dior Addict | Charmante #437*
The Dior Cherie Bow Collection from Spring 2013 included this beautiful Dior Addict Lipstick in #437 Charmante. Charmante when translated actually means 'Charming' and i think this lipstick is truly a charming and beautiful shade. It is a beautiful peachy, soft-coral lip colour with a super glossy sheen. The collection was Limited Edition so i am unsure whether you will be able to get your hands on this particular lipstick now, but i am sure Dior would have something similar within their permanent line.
The lipstick features the same packaging as the permanent line Dior Addict Lipsticks which i think looks absolutely luxurious, classy and beautiful. The packaging is very unique in comparison to other more high-end and luxurious brands; the stunning clear cap with the embossed 'CD' knob on the bullet, when you look at it you instantly think of Dior.
The Dior addict Lipstick formula is supposed to be hydrating while adding a veil of colour and spectacular shine to the lips. Charmante is sheer in colour, not extremely visible but i feel it would look different on everyone depending on the pigmentation of your lips. For me it does leave a soft coraly sheen to my lips which i think is perfect for everyday for a quick wash of colour to the lips. It really does glide on the lips, leaves them silky soft and does last a considerable amount of time given that it is not as pigmented. I feel this is more of a balm-like consistency rather than say one of Dior's Rouge Lipsticks which give off a more opaque colour to the lips, either way i absolutely love this lipstick and i feel it could definitely be built up slightly to a more medium intensity.
I feel this gorgeous peachy coraly hue is unmistakably perfect for the Spring / Summer season and the glossy sheen tops off the sheer-to-medium buildable colour perfectly. The lipstick is incredibly hydrating and also slightly plumping...it feels almost more like a lip balm, however, it really does offer great coverage. I adore the colour, texture and glow that it gives my lips and i cannot wait to branch out and try some more Dior lip products. I feel it would be a perfect lip product to wear at the beach or by the pool and i am planning on taking this little beauty away with me to LA really soon!
I am extremely grateful and thankful to have won this amazing giveaway hosted by the ever so lovely Liza at Glam Beautys. I hope you all enjoyed this review, i would love to know what you think and any lipsticks you are coveting after at the moment :D Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below.
