New Dior Addict Glosses & Lip Polish

Dior has released a new lipgloss called Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss which comes in a larger tube than the regular Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflect formula. Does this mean the original Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflects are going away? I'm not sure. There are quite a few of the same shade numbers in the new packaging/formula, just with different names, my SA did not know when I asked her.

The new formula retails at the same price as the old, even though the newer tubes have slightly more product. Both retail for $26.50, the new tubes have 6.3 ml/.21 fl oz versus the older tubes which have 6 ml/.19 fl oz.

Also, new and exclusive to Sephora for Spring 2010, there is a new Lip Polish called Petal Pink in #004 for $29.50. I wrote about the other 3 lip polishes last June, click here for the review/swatches.

L to R: Lace Beige, Pink Silk, Negligee Pink, Petal Pink


Close up:



Overall lovely with nice soft-medium pigment and smooth texture. The new Addict Ultra-Glosses range from cream non-shimmer to soft iridescent to super sparkle, so there's a wide range to suit your sparkle needs. I picked the ones that were more subdued. (From Nordstrom.) If you own any Dior glosses, I suggest you go through your current stash and write down the numbers of the colors you own so you don't experience the same "do I already have this shade" that I did while playing with all the colors.

(FYI those not familiar with Dior, most of their lipglosses are labeled by number at the bottom, the product name is typically only on the boxes, making it a challenge to remember what colors you have.)

The new Lip Polish in Petal Pink is fairly sheer. If I had tested it in-store, I probably would have passed. It is very dupable from other milky pinks, although it does give your lips that pretty youthful looking glow. These are pricey at $29.50, but this is due to the roller-wand and unique ingredients. I personally find the rolling wand a bit awkward to use since I'm not used to it. (From Sephora.)

  2. Oooh Lace Beige looks so pretty! I WANT! :D :D

    FYI..not to sound nit picky or anything, but to save confusion. I think you made a typo ---> "The new formula retails for $26.50 (6.3 ml/.21 fl oz) versus the old formula $26.50 (6 ml/.19 fl oz)."

    The new formula is 29.50 correct?

    Thanks! :D

  3. Minted Rose - I changed to writing to clarify. What I meant to compare was the product size. Surprisingly both the old and new formula for the Addict Ultra-Gloss have the same price at $26.50.

    The Lip Polish is $29.50.

    Sorry for the confusion!

  4. Hi. love your blog. I have read, in fact, that the old ultra gloss refect will be discontinued for the newer ones. they are already selling out in the dept stores and online sephora only has less than a handful of colours left. :-)

  6. Hopefully the new packaging is better than the old one, since my tube is always lacking product, which is really annyoing, since it gets sticky everywhere in my makeup pouch as a result.

    256 Negligee Pink looks lovely!
