#ShineDontBeShy With The New Dior Addict Lipsticks

If you weren’t at the Dior Backstage Studio party in ION Orchard Singapore last Saturday, you’d have missed out on the three handy makeup pointers shared by senior Dior Backstage Artist, Chew Toong Han, affectionately known as Han in the beauty circuit. But that’s not all: you also missed out on the real star of the show – the new Dior Addict Lipstick range – which was unveiled by the lovely Leanne in the iconic Be Dior look.

As if pampering ourselves silly with flash makeovers and manicures weren’t enough, the party really started when Han treated the crowd to a live demonstration of achieving the perfect everyday look. These three effortless steps are all you really need to know: 


Step 1: Fix it and conceal

Want to know how you can conceal your undereye circles, hide your blemishes and prime your lips at the same time? You just need one tool to rule them all –Dior FIX IT. This skin-perfecting stick features a soft-focus powder formula combined with a full-coverage concealer shade to cover and smooth skin flaws. Ladies, that’s your cheat stick to a flawless complexion.

Step 2: Sport a rosy glow

Fake that healthy glow of flushed cheeks for an instant pick-me-up. Han reached out for a Diorblush Cheek Stick and worked his magic to give Leanne’s flawless but dull face a youthful, healthy colour. “One dot for the day, and two dots for the night!” he declared as he dabbed the stick strategically on the apples of her cheeks.

Step 3: Seal the deal with a slap of colour on the lips!

And the moment we had been waiting for – Leanne put the finishing touch to her look by picking up the new Dior Addict Lipstick in Be Dior, and demonstrated the ease of application with a few glides of the highly raved lipstick. 

A luxurious lipstick and lip-gloss in one, the new Dior Addict Lipstick consists of a hydra-gel core in the shape of a CD at the center of the stick. The first layer offers a health-looking sheer sheen, and subsequent layers deliver an extra dose of colour and incredible mirror shine with its topcoat effect. The result is a pair of luscious lips drenched in moisture and fabulous colour.

And there you have it – Leanne is all made up and ready to go!

As a big Dior Addict (pun intended), I knew I had to give the new products a shot. I tried the new Dior Addict Lipstick in Be Dior and I was pleasantly surprised by its rich tone when I applied the colour on with a lip brush. It’s not drying with its moisturising hydra-gel core and leaves a natural-looking tint towards the end of the day without any touch-ups – perfect for lazy people like me.

Here’s what the rest of the Clozetters say about the new Dior Addict Lipstick:

 “The Dior Addict lipstick is the one to go for if you're looking for something that's moisturising and hydrating at the same time. It's really easy to wear and you can build the intensity up by applying a few more layers if you like. “ – Kexian, Ad Ops Executive

“I like how moisturising the new Dior Addict Lipstick is, coupled with a silky texture that glides on smoothly. I love that it gives my lips a natural plumped-up look, and I also have a soft spot for pretty lipstick packaging. Who wouldn't love Dior Addict's sleek silver metal and transparent packaging? – Azleena, Campaign Executive

“Thanks to the hydra-gel topcoat and a triple oil complex formulation, the new Dior Addict lipstick has got to be one of the most moisturising lippy in the market. It acts as a lip balm to provide my usually chapped lips the much-needed moisture required. It also provides just the right amount of shine and tinge of colour for everyday use. I'm definitely looking forward to more colours added to this range in the future.” – Carissa, Campaign Manager
