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,
