Officially Addicted

It's lipstick. Or is it gloss? Maybe lip balm mixed in with both?

Who knows. Who cares? I don't.

I'm obsessed.

Dior Addict Lipstick is basically my new holy grail of lip products. And this is from a girl who does not like lipstick. I'll wear it occasionally, and I love grabbing up limited edition shades like Lancome's Chris & Tell and using them for special occasions. But honestly? I'm just more of a sheer lip gloss girl. I much prefer to have dramatic eye makeup to bright lips (though the occasional rep lip is definitely necessary).

I was browsing through Sephora with a friend the other day and came upon an entire display of these Dior pink lipsticks. Baby pink/peach is my go-to color for...well, basically everything. I just think it's super flattering on everyone.

I grabbed a few different ones, tested them on my hand, and quickly found myself infatuated with number 249 - Diorissime. It's a sheer soft pink/coral with enough pigment to give you a good dose of color, but not enough to be completely opaque. It's lovely and moisturizing and glossy all without being sticky.

Raise your hand if you hate getting your hair stuck in your lip gloss! RIGHT HERE! I DO!

Dior Addict has been reformulated with 25% less wax and I believe it uses a type of gel product to give it that amazing light-reflecting quality. So less waxy and not sticky at all?'s made of AWESOME.

Also, let's take a quick look at the Dior Addict Be Iconic campaign for this lipstick. It features Kate Moss... probably my least favorite model on the planet.

I don't dig the heroin chic thing. I don't understand the obsession. I don't even consider her particularly pretty. Also, I think her sense of "style" is questionable at best.

This lipstick makes me forget all that because I think she looks amazing in this campaign. Also, I'm not exactly sure if this is the Diorissime on her, but when I put it on it looks extremely similar, so I'm going to guess that it's the same color if not a very similar one. Either way... That's actually what your lips look like with this stuff.

It. Is. Awesome.

Go try it! Right now!

And just for kicks, here are some of the other ads from this campaign - all are equally beautiful. Guess that goes to show what a phenomenal photographer/talented stylist/fabulous makeup artist can do for a person.

Beautiful, right? Must give credit where credit is due. Maybe there's something to this Kate Moss thing after all.

Then again... Maybe not.

P.S. Here are some more gorgeous images from this campaign. I don't know about you, but I want every single thing from all of these photos.

For every plus size woman, there is a plus size herve leger dress that will make her look great and sexy. You only need to know what herve leger dress kind of fabric, color and design would look good on you and what can accentuate your curves and downplay problem areas. You have to pick a plus size herve dress that will look seemingly tailor-made. This is important to make you look slimmer and still feel comfortable.A plus size woman you should also go for herve leger dresses that are not too tight or too loose. If you wears a herve leger dress that is too tight on her, bulges might show fengyinghaibing89.
