Today's Makeup - Dior Candide Lipstick

My name is Sandra and I am a lipstick-holic.


It's halfway through the January Spending Diet and I have thought long and hard about using one of my holiday gift cards on one pretty piece of Spring 2013 makeup. The brand of the culprit? Dior.

Dior is probably my favourite makeup brand at the moment. I find myself consistently reaching for their products in my daily routine and I love it. Their Spring 2013 Cherie Bow collection has some gorgeous pink/grey/silver shades and the cutest collector's edition palette. Three limited edition Dior Addict lipsticks were released in the range, and after some persuasion from some fellow makeup enthusiast friends (namely Rachel and Jess) I walked out with #436 "Candide".

It's pigmented (slightly more pigmented than YSL Sheer Candy lipsticks or the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks I own, for example) and glossy and the


 shade of light neutral pink for spring. I added a tiny hint of Laura Mercier lip liner in Potpourri just to add definition to the edge of my lips, but did not fill my lips in with the liner.

The packaging of Dior Addict lipsticks is so pretty and sleek.

It lasts a good 2 hours on me, which is nice given the glossy formula. These lipsticks are glossy and not drying and the packaging is so beautiful, they are made for reapplying throughout the day. Here's the rest of the makeup I wore:

Maybelline Age Rewind Brightener

Chanel Fleur De Lotus Blush (was a
