If you have ever tried Dior Lipsticks then you will know that the formula is amazing. There is something about a luxury lipstick that can be better than drugstore lipsticks. The formula of Dior lipsticks is undeniably the most luxurious I have ever experienced. They go on smoothly yet come out even with the colour so distinct and beautiful. The texture of any of these types of lipsticks from Dior are perfect.
During the winter months, I find that Dior makes such amazing lip products that I don’t have to wear these random lip balms without any colour. Dior has so many different lipstick and lipgloss lines that I’ll review a few of my favourite ones!
Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss Review
The Dior Addict is known for a few different Dior lip products such as glosses, longwear lip stains and balms.
My favourite is the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss which is not as sticky as I thought it would be. Also, during the Spring and Summer months, Dior usually comes out with Summer colours. My favourite shade of the Lip Maximizer is Coral which has a hint of colour but is really subtle. The Lip Maximizer also helps to plump the lips while giving a glossy pout.
According to Sephora, apparently the Lip Maximizer is perfect for the Dior Addict Lip Glow series. The maximizer is the perfect topper for those balm shades to take them from day to night.
Here are some of the swatches for the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss:
Dior Addict Lip Tattoo Review
Quite the opposite of the Lip Maximizer is the Dior Addict Tattoo which is a long wear lip tint. The Dior Addict Lip Tattoo is similar to the Maybelline Matte Ink lip. I love the feel of the Dior Addict Lip Tattoo and because I don’t have to reapply it throughout the day its perfect for busy people on the go.
The Dior Addict Lip Tattoo is also non transferring meaning once it is on your lips it is long lasting for 10 hours. According to Sephora, the tinted ink will fuse with lips providing a healthy wash of colour.
The reviews on Sephora Canada don’t lie! So many of the people who purchased the Lip Tattoo say it is worth the money. Dior Lipsticks can be expensive but some of the reviews say they are worth the money.
Dior Addict Lacquer Plump Review
I purchased the Dior Addict Lacquer Plump and I was not in love with it. Since this is a stain, it doesn’t have the same colour pay off as a lipstick. It also looks really weird if you don’t use a lip liner but at the same time you shouldn’t use a lip lacquer with a lip liner.
I also purchased the colour “Dior Pretty” which is a rose coloured pink. I found that there were too many blue undertones and the colour changed from what it looked like in the swatches and the tube.
I find that a lot of reviews on Sephora were negative for the Dior Addict Lacquer Plump. The colours are not as they appear in the swatches and it is also really drying on the lips. It also says that it plumps your lips and I never got that feeling.
This is the only lip product from Dior that I wasn’t impressed with.
Dior Lip Glow Review
I have written about the Dior Lip Glow a few times throughout Beauty Reviews Canada and each time I end up giving it a raving review. Dior Lip Glow is one of those easy to wear balms that glides on so smoothly. I also compared it to the NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Glow (read the review here including dupes).
The Dior Lip Glow is a dupe for the NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Glow balm. You can pick from a shimmer or a satin balm finish that comes in three colours each. See swatches below:

Dior Ultra Rouge 999 Limited Edition Review
As well as Dior does lighter lip shades, they are also very well known for their bold reds. The Dior Ultra Rouge 999 is a collection of the best bold shades of red that vary from brick orange to iconic red (shade 999) which is arguably the most perfect blue red.
The formula of the Ultra Rouge 999 is satin so you’ll love the way it moisturizers your lips and doesn’t dry them out.
This collection is the perfect bold red lipstick collection to wear in the winter time.
If you’re wondering if these red lipsticks will last through your coffee well you may want to check out the liquid lipstick version of the Dior Rouge 999 Collection:
Again, this is the most perfect shade of blue red by Christian Dior. If you don’t know what blue red means, it means that there is more of a blue undertone in the shade that allows this red to look on the cooler side. You can see how it looks a bit flatter – that’s the blue helping tone down the hues.
Here are some swatches of my favourite shades in the Rouge 999 collection:
Where To Buy Dior Ultra Rouge 999 Limited Edition
Since it is a limited edition, only a few places carry the collection. One of the best places to find the Ultra Rouge if you are in Canada is Holt Renfrew. You can also check out Nordstrom to see if the Dior Counter will still stock the collection.
