Well, I got played. In the new Dior Spring display at Nordstrom sat 3 Lipgloss. 3 came out with Spring, so I didn’t think anything was off. The one was Party Lilac, reviewed here, and the other was Pretty Rose. The third, Pink Trench #257, was the one I picked up. I remembered the third being a Dior.com exclusive, but sometimes Nordies will get exclusives, and sometimes press releases can be wrong. It being in the display I automatically thought it was part of Spring and the Dior MA didn’t correct me, so I bought it.
Pink Trench is NOT part of Spring 2012 for Dior, but it is a rather pretty shade and my decision to buy was based off of me swatching, even though for this trip I was trying to focus on picking up only Spring items.
What Sephora.com has to say about Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss:
What it is:
A flash-plumping lipgloss with a dazzling finish.
What it does:
Straight from the runway, new Dior Addict Ultra Gloss features a featherweight formula with a flash-plumping, “spotlight shine” effect. Hyaluronic spheres keep lips smooth and moisturized, while mirror-like micropearls reflect light in all directions for a dazzling finish. The package is tall and sleek, with a Lucite top that mirrors the nano-spotlight effect. The precision brush applicator makes for effortless, perfect application every time.
What else you need to know:
An exclusive “Spotlight Shine” complex features glass-like micro-marbles of varying sizes, which multiply light tenfold to illuminate lips like nano-spotlights! The nano-spotlights reflect light in every direction like a kaleidoscope, to multiply and maximize shine—all while delivering a sheer wash of catwalk color.
Size: 0.21 oz
Even though Pink Trench isn’t an official part of the Spring 2012 launch, it is a very pretty shade and was a good filler gloss for the empty slot that the Dior.com exclusive made.
Pink Trench is sheer with a slight pink tint and has multi-colored mini shimmers. There is little to no stick and no gritty feeling from the shimmer. The shine gives your lips a nice, full appearance.
Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss retails for $27.50 is available at Dior counters nationwide as well as at Sephora.
