Dior Addict lipstick #525 Vintage and #621 Granville.

Dior Addict 525 Vintage and 621 Granville.

Opps, I did it again!  Yes ladies, my love/obsession with Dior Addicts has taken off.  As a reward to myself for surviving another academic year, I have lovingly gifted myself Dior Addict Lipstick 525 Vintage and 621 Granville ($31 US/ 3.5 g).  These puppies are everything Dior Addict 773 Rouge Podium (reviewed here) was and more.

The Formula/Color:

Dior Addict 525 Vintage is a beautiful glossy, mauve tone pink and 621 Granville is a more vibrant pinky/rose shade.  I have a light olive skin tone and finding a pink to suit my coloring is a challenge.  Due to the slight brown undertone present in both colors, these fit my “pink” longings beautifully!  For those of you who are fair-skinned and love natural colors (without any fuss or muss) you will love these shades as well.  Vintage and Granville are so naturally flattering, you can actually apply them without a mirror and instantly look polished.  As with all the lipsticks in the Dior Addict line, 525 Vintage and 621 Granville are moisturizing, semi-long lasting (darker colors last longer), and wear off evenly.

The Pros:

Both colors are absolutely stellar on their own, but their true radiance comes out when they are layered over a lip pencil and/or lipstick.  Not only does this method give Vintage and Granville more dimension, it also extends the wear of these lipsticks.  If layered on top of a lipstick, Dior Addicts will not cause your underlining color to bleed out into your fine lines around your lips.  Dior Addicts are designed to meld superbly with other lipstick/lipliners.  If you have read my past posts, you know I appall fragrance and flavoring in my lipsticks.  Vintage and Granville thankfully comply with my desires.  These non-shimmery lipsticks provide the shine of a gloss, without the goopy texture and wear of one.  As an additional bonus, Dior Addicts also make your lips look plump and luscious.   I ♥ Dior Addicts!

The Cons:

In all honesty, can I come up with any?  Well, if I must.  For starters, the price is rather hefty, but not as unreasonable as Tom Ford lipsticks.  If price deters you, then only splurge on one and whittle it down to the bare minimum, before you invest in another color.  Of course, I do not have that sort of restrain, I must possess and possess I shall.  Be warned:  Some colors in the Dior Addict line contain HIGH levels of shimmers that linger behind when the lipstick wears off or is removed.  It is best to see the colors in person rather than purchasing blindly online.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you if you seek moisture, shine, and a little “plumping” then Dior Addict 525 Vintage and 621 Granville lipsticks fit that bill wonderfully.  Let’s face it, I’m not a spring chicken anymore, more like a seasoned hen 🙂  I need all the help I can get.  Remember, if life has you feeling down, buy yourself a lipstick or maybe two…I did 🙂  Like Mae West always said,

“Too much of a good thing can be wonderful!”

Be well and stay safe.
