The Dior Crystal Gloss is a new Limited Edition offering by Dior for Summer 2010 – Addicted to Dior. Its an interesting little thing and although it sounds a tad gimmicky, its fast become my favourite lip gloss!
But first, a note about the packaging. I love how its like the Dior Addict lipglosses that I adore but I was not happy with the emblazoning of the word “Crystal Gloss” in bright shiny letters across the side of the tube. It screams “TACKY!!” to me.
Once I get past that, I must say that I love the texture of this gloss. It looks like liquid jelly and feels like liquid jelly. If you have ever made jelly, image the texture just before it sets – its slippery and slick and not sticky. The Dior Crystal Gloss feels just like that.
It comes in only 1 shade – one colour that adapts to your lip and skin so it might look different on you as it does on me. I’ll show you how it looks on my lips below.
The Dior Crystal Gloss slicks on sheer with its brush tip applicator. I love brush tip applicators!! Once you apply it, wait a few minutes and the colour will develop on your lips.
On mine, its a very light tint of rosiness. My perfect lip colour! Also, it takes on a high gloss that isn’t like that of wearing lipgloss. Its like you took jelly and smeared it on your lips – its got a very watery look to it. Something that Japanese brands tend to go for.
If you want slightly more intensity, apply a couple more coats. The colour gets more intense the more coats you apply.
With eating and drinking the gloss will slide off and lose its glossiness, but a hint of colour remains on the lips. You could just top up with lipbalm or apply more Crystal Gloss and get a higher intensity of colour.
I won’t know how it’ll look on your lips to be perfectly honest. Its one of those things 😛
Pros: Light non sticky texture, Sheer glossy watery look, Develops into a nice colour for my lips
Cons: Limited Edition, Expensive for the masses
This item isn’t probably for everyone, especially if you like sticky lipglosses. If you aren’t into sticky goopy lipglosses like me, you might like this. In fact, I use this so often, its fast diminishing and I’m wondering if I should get a back up – probably the first time ever I’m considering this!
Oh and I’m in love with how pouty it makes me lips look! 😀
