Red lipsticks are timeless and lend an effortlessly cool, edgy and sophisticated vibe to any woman who wears it. Nude, on the other hand, is chic, versatile and wearable for everyday while pink shades are often associated with girly, feminine girls. If you are one of those who do not generally gravitate towards pink-hued lippies, you might just change your mind with this collection.
The all-new Dior Addict Stellar Shine is a series of 24 pink-coloured lipsticks (in varying shades, of course) that offer the comfort of a balm, pigmentation of any good ol’ lipstick and a high-shine finish like a lip gloss.
What is so different about this new collection is how it aims to redefine the colour pink and have it be known as a shade that brings forth a confident, strong, modern and cool appeal, while still keeping to its feminine roots. Said to be Christian Dior’s favourite — and lucky — colour, the whole range describes a confident, feminine and strong woman, a la Cara Delevingne, who is also the face for the entire campaign.
The 24 shades are grouped based on their finishes — glazed (pure shine), mirror (metallic shine) and sparkle (glitter shine) — and feature tone-on-tone micro-pearls that reflect light multidimensionally, boosting shine for optimum radiance. Besides its opulent finish, the formula includes beeswax, as well as five other lightweight oils to continuously hydrate and nourish puckers for comfortable wear that reportedly lasts for eight hours. Aloe vera works together with waxes and oils to provides 24-hour hydration to lips for plump, soft and smooth puckers.
