The Dior Duo for the Perfect Pink Plumped Pout: Dior Addict Lipstick and Lip Maximizer | Review and Swatches

Purchased by Me (Affiliate Links)

Lately I have been wearing pale, slightly frosty cool pink lipsticks, and am over the moon about the Dior Addict Lipstick in Urban No. 178 topped by the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer in Sheer Pink. Together these two produce the absolute perfect pink light plumped pink pout. In fact, these two pair so well, and are so gorgeous that mine already show great signs of wear.
Dior Addict Lipstick is described as a hydrating lip color that is, "inspired by the cutting-edge runway fashions of Dior, this hydrating and volumizing formula dresses lips with a veil of addicting color and spectacular shine."

I would definitely concur that this is a hydrating and volumizing formula, and would add that it is exceptionally comfortable on the lips with the perfect amount of cushion. Urban No. 178 is a sheer pale cool-toned pink with subtle multi-colored shimmer. It beautifully captures the light, and has the perfect amount of shimmer and sheen. The shimmer is neither overdone, nor does it migrate everywhere. It has a rather balmy texture, but it does not immediately slip off of the lips. I'm not sure about the longevity for the more pigmented shades, but I get about two to three hours of wear from a single application. I can easily apply this without a mirror, and while it is on the sheer side it does intensify with multiple passes. Urban No. 178 is absolutely gorgeous, and I can see that I will need to replace it before too long since I reach for it all of the time.
For those among you who prefer greater pigmentation, Dior Addict Lipsticks come in a beautiful range of colors to pick from.

Dior Addict Lip Maximizer in Sheer Pink is described as, "Dior's must-have accessory for luscious, full lips." This is probably my third tube of Dior's Lip Maximizer, and I can tell you that I have loved everything about this glossy lip plumper for a very long time. It has a wonderful and refreshing vanilla-mint scent that is so pleasant to the senses, and thankfully the tingle is neither painful, nor unpleasant. Worn alone, it gives the lips a very faint pale pink color that is really lovely, but it can also be worn over or under your favorite lipstick or gloss. My lips are left pleasantly plumped, contoured and moisturized. I absolutely love this formula.

According to Dior,

Give your lips a kiss of instant volume and shine with this invigorating lip plumper. The rich blend of collagen and marine-based fillers smooth and moisturize the appearance of the skin, leaving lips gorgeous and voluptuous. After just 15 days of use, your lips will look noticeably fuller and more defined. Smile big and enjoy the tingly, cooling effect of this formula, rather than the sometimes-painful sting associated with other lip plumpers. The soft vanilla-mint scent and sheer pink tint make this lip necessity gorgeous alone or as a volumizing base or topcoat.

Dior Addict Lip Maximizer was born from backstage beauty secrets, taking inspiration from makeup artists who used extreme measures like pepper powder to achieve the perfect runway pout. Now you can get the same glam results in an instant with this feel-good, delicious formula—pepper-free, of course.

-Hyaluronic Filling Spheres: Leave lips looking and feeling moisturized and contoured.
-Lasting Plumping Action: Supports natural collagen synthesis for moisturized lips.

  1. That's a great shade of lipstick. I think the Dior Lip Addicts are wonderful.

    1. It's just our kind of lip color, Marcia! I agree with you, I think the formula is really wonderful too!

  2. The Addict formula is SO good! Not sure I'll ever be brave enough to try the Maximizer though. Lip products touting "tingly" effects usually do not sit well here.

    1. I agree– it's a really divine formula! Their Maximizer is far more forgiving and gentle than most plumbers. I actually find this one refreshing and pleasant rather than painful and uncomfortable. In fact, many plumbers are simply to aggressive for me, and end up irritating my lips. This one moisturizes and makes my lips look and feel great. That said, I would try to find a new and unused tester and try before you buy. I definitely wouldn't buy blind if you know that these types of products can be problematic for you, though! :-)

    1. I agree, and the formula is wonderful on both! :-)

  4. Both are gorgeous, but that packaging! <3

    1. I agree with you completely, Jessica! Everything about these lippies makes me happy!

  5. Such soft colors! Definitely YLBB shades :)

  6. The packaging on these is STUNNING! I'd love to try a Dior lippie sometime :)

    1. I agree, they really did a great job with the packaging, and with the products themselves as well! It's definitely worth trying a Dior lip pie at some point!
