Earlier this year, I posted a review of the Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in 996 Diorosphere (here). I was super impressed with the reformulation. Since then, I picked up a few more shades and thought I’d share some updated swatches.
The Ultra-Gloss formula has easily become my favorite gloss formula. They are lightweight with serious shine factor, plus they are hydrating and non-sticky. They wear beautifully alone, over lip liner, or over lipsticks. Staying power isn’t out of this world (I’ve gotten 4 hours max), but they fade away without issue.
If you’re looking for a gloss with intense pigment, these aren’t it. There are three different variations of the formula: sparkling, iridescent, and sheer. The iridescent shades pack a tad more pigment, while the sparkling are insanely glossy and the sheer are quite watery. All three formulations are shiny, though the sparkling have the most substantial glossiness.
The descriptions claim plumping from these glosses. I notice no tingling when I wear them. I do find my lips look slightly fuller though.
Following are swatches of the full size glosses I now own, plus a deluxe sample and sample card I received as gifts with purchase.

If you’re looking to try a new gloss, I highly recommend the Dior Addict Ultra-Glosses. They are so comfortable to wear (no sticky feeling whatsoever) and leave me with juicy, shiny lips.
