The Perfect Summer Lip Gloss? Dior Ultra-Gloss in #664 Rose Bikini



Hello Lovelies! *Sigh* another weekend has come & gone too soon! Hope you all enjoyed it! While I was out shopping a bit this weekend, I found a gorgeous new product that I just knew I had to share with you asap! It is the new Ultra-Gloss from Dior, in Shade #664, Rose Bikini! This shade is launching as part of the Dior Summer Mix Collection, which is a compilation of eye-catching bright lip glosses & nail polishes for Summer 2012. 




 Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss #664, Rose Bikini, is best described as a bright watermelon pink. I love that the color can be sheered out for a more subtle look, but is also pigmented enough to create more of a statement lip if desired. Rose Bikini is part of the "Glow" family of Ultra-Glosses, meaning it contains little to no shimmer. This shade is completely shimmer free, which I really appreciate. I generally steer clear of glittery & ultra shimmery glosses.  

The formula of this gloss feels very smooth & moisturizing on the lips. According to Dior.com, the Ultra-Glosses contain Hyaluronic spheres which help condition & moisturize the lips. As is the case with most non-sticky glosses the wear time isn't amazing, but I would say I get around 1-2 hours of wear time before I need to reapply. 




The packaging is your standard luxurious Dior tube. This is one of those glosses that just looks so pretty in the tube, I actually look forward to pulling it out of my purse in front of people to reapply. 

The only complaint I have about this product is that I wish the applicator was a doe-foot instead of the little lip brush. I find doe-foot applicators much easier to work with, however this is just personal preference. 





All in all, I really feel Dior hit a home run with their Ultra- Gloss in Rose Bikini. It is a quintessential bright Summer color that captures the feel of the season perfectly. I cannot wait to wear this lip gloss all Summer long. I'm even considering running out to buy a backup!


What is your favorite Summer lip product? 

Thanks for reading!



Lots of Love,

Louise

  3. I love Dior products, but have yet to try their lipgloss for some reason - this has definitely inspired me to hit up Sephora & change that! I love this colour so much, it really is perfect for Summer. And as someone who shares your dislike of shimmery glosses, this would work perfectly for me! :)

  8. Bright pink lips are my go-to for summer, but I normally stick to lipsticks to avoid shimmer - I'm thrilled to know that Dior has a line of shimmer-free glosses. Thanks for sharing!
