Christian Dior Lip Glosses (Gloss Show and Ultra Gloss)

Hey guys,

Do you like lip glosses? Lip gloss mostly always look weird on me because my lips are naturally dark (no I do not smoke :-) ) and so even a bright lipstick would look toned down on my lips except when I use a lip liner. I only use lip gloss when I really want an under-stated look or when I want to “gloss-ify” a matte lipstick.

Anywho, I do have some Christian Dior glosses that my sissy sent me and they are:

1. CD Gloss show 355 in Lindsay pink

2. Dior Addict Ultra Gloss 313

3. Dior Addict Ultra Gloss 151 
Dior Addict Ultra Gloss 151, CD Gloss show 355 in Lindsay pink and Dior Addict Ultra Gloss 313

My lips with no liner

Swatch for the 151. It's so similar to the 313!


My fave is the CD Gloss show 355 in Lindsay pink. It's pigmented enough for my dark lips. It's also very beautiful on white folks who have natural pink lips-I saw some model pics and I was very impressed. Apparently it is a favourite for runway models. There's also a bit of shimmer in it which you may or may not like. The con to it is that you need a lip brush or your finger to apply the gloss. Also it is pricey at 25 to 30 dollars! A good but more affordable alternative would be the Maybelline Diamonds Liquid-according to a review from www.makeupalley.com.
The Dior Addict glosses are cheaper, have better packaging but less pigment.

Do you also have a love-hate relationship with lip glosses?



Love,

Fola

  1. Well I have naturally full lips and lipglosses feel like I'm giving more attention to lips that are already there. I use them as an alternative to balms because IMO , they last all day without need for reapplication.

    1. Yes, you know lip glosses have this stickiness to them-I guess that's what makes them last longer. You can try lipstick in muted tones if you feel you want to play things down.
