This is an oldie I once picked up at an airport. The Dior Addict High Shine range (not to be confused with Dior Addict) is discontinued but I thought I’d review it anyway, it’s still available on certain websites.
I suppose it’s meant to be more glossy than the Addict range but I didn’t really find that much of a difference compared to Backstage.
Dior Addict High Shine Lipstick in Orange Ovation/ Spotlight Coral is a peachy pink, leaning more towards the orange side with a bit of gold shimmer added to it. It’s a really nice warm colour which will suit most skintones.
It’s a sheer lipstick and has a bit of a balm like texture. Very similar to the new L’oreal Caresse lipsticks in that sense but this is more glossy. It doesn’t however, feel weightless like many of the newer drugstore offerings of a similar kind. The shimmer is very fine and you can’t really feel it on the lips, but the balm can feel a bit heavy at times.
I do prefer the Dior Addict compared to this, it’s still sheer but more comfortable on the lips.
It’s moisturising enough for dry lips but it’s not a pretty picture. This sits in the problem areas and can enhance them. It doesn’t give a very smooth even look.
This can last for about 3-4 hours without any intake of food/drink. It’s a good option if you have dry lips and want something moisturising but don’t mind reapplying.
That said, in the current market there are much better cheaper options available for a sheer moisturizing lipstick.
The packaging is amazing though, similar to the Dior Addict ones but this looks more iridescent. I think this was for around $30 but it’s discontinued now.
