Dior Lip Addict Gloss: 707 Flash and 654 Pearl

Alongside the palette I showed to you yesterday, Dior have also released two lipglosses to go alongside, one a cool silvery grey and one a light, cool, milky coral:

Flash 707 is the one that caught my eye back in December, and I was intrigued as to how it would work in person, but when I saw 654 Pearl, I felt duty-bound to pick that one up too, as it was so pretty in the flesh!

As you can see, 707 Flash swatches pretty sheerly, and 654 Pearl swatches far more opaquely, but both have a hint of blue and copper micro-shimmer running through them, as you can see here:

They’re both exceptionally pretty, but I have a feeling Flash will be a lot more useful as a layering gloss, than as a shade in its own right, I’m not entirely convinced grey lips are the way to go unless you’re serious about looking like you have consumption …

Both are typical Lip Addict glosses, lightly fruit scented, slightly sticky, not all that long lasting, but they don’t dry your lips out, and I, for one, am a fan of the slightly OTT packaging.

The Fine Print:  You can call these samples, if you wish.  I prefer to refer to them as “shopping”.

    Yes, Flash is my next conquest. I think I would wear it alone with a slightly ashy cool (home-mixed) bronzer, a hit of peach at the apples and a taupe eye, thin line of black gel liner close to the lash-line, one coat of volumizing mascara. But I agree that it will make for lovely layering as well.

    I would love to see a FOTD with pics of the grey gloss worn alone and layered over something else. xx

    Hmm…grey lipgloss. Now that's something you don't see everyday. Definitely one for the layering I think!
