Dior Lip Maximizer review

If you’re into one-offs  (including one night stands), skip this one. It’s just too good for that.

What Dior says:

Dior Addict Lip Maximizer: Collagen active lip-gloss

Dior presents a revolutionary lip care system that boosts volume instantly and restructures in the long term, thanks to a unique blend of hyaluronic and marine-based fillers that smooth, moisturize and leave lips irresistibly plump. Apply under regular lipstick or gloss for volume and shine, or morning and night as a 15-day intensive cure. Its fresh mint-vanilla scent makes it even more addictive.

What I say:

I could sum it up in just one word: orgasmic.  It’s just that good. Why? Let’s see:

  • it’s Dior – do you seriously need more proof? ok…
  • very shiny but not over the top (doesn’t make you look like you’ve just eaten half of McDonalds)
  • visibly plumps up your lips
  • cooling effect is very comfy during summer, perhaps not so much when it’s cold outside though
  • such a cute packaging 🙂
  • one tube lasts me at least half a year, which is not so bad for around 25 €
  • it comes in a clear shade (apparently there is one more – ”Apricot”, which I haven’t come across yet)


Would I repurchase? Most definitely!






Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm review

I got this by accident.  A rather pleasant one…So, let’s see:

What Dior says:

A made-to-measure lip balm that beautifies and durably enhances the lips’ natural color. A customized color result : thanks to its Color Reviver technology, Dior Addict Lip Glow reacts directly with the unique chemistry of each woman’s lips before releasing its color ingredient. Lips seem revived from within, amazingly fresh, full and radiant. In addition, its SPF10 formula enriched with wild mango and luffa cylindrica continuously protects and moisturizes. A universal balm for all lips.

What I say:

This lip balm delivers what it promises. Ok, apart from the ”unique chemistry-revived from within” bit, but big words, just like big boobs, never fail to sell.  The colour of the balm is a very nice baby pink, however when you put it on, can change from a nice sheer gloss that makes your lips plump and sexy to absolutely horrific fuchsia colour, so beware if you’re not a fan of magenta. I’ve had this balm for half a year and couldn’t figure out why and how the colour changes, until I went out in the cold (-5 C) and caught a glimpse of my face. My lips were hot magenta colour, not exactly the look that suits me! 😀

Overall, a nice sheer pinkish gloss that changes colour – perhaps depending on the temperature. Moisturizes just fine and smells very nice. As with the whole Dior Addict range, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous.

Would I repurchase?

Yes, but only if duty-free priced, otherwise I don’t think it’s worth the steep price tag.
