Dior Fall 2013 Lip Color Review...Gri Gri and Charm


Above: Dior Addict Extreme in Gri Gri and Addict Gloss in Charm...both were part of  the Fall 2013 collection (initially released in mid-July).

I've been meaning to share this pictorial dedicated to two Christian Dior Fall 2013 lip color shades that bring a gorgeous ebullience to the lips...better late than never!

Dior Addict Extreme lip color in Gri Gri ($31) is a unique pink/peach/nude hybrid that makes my lips full and juicy and Dior Addict gloss in Charm ($29.50) is a creamy muted peachy mauve beige that adds an undeniably luscious dimension, especially when applied over Gri Gri.  Both products are deliciously moisturizing and have respectable lasting power...although they apply relatively sheer, they have buildable pigmentation provides full coverage with a few slick swipes.

Kindly scroll on for additional images!

Bottom Line: Gri Gri and Charm are simply lovely both by themselves and in tandem!  Their natural sheen transmits a neutral vibe without washing out the face.  I hope you enjoyed this brief review...between my full-time teaching schedule and two trips (Tahoe and Texas) in a single week (recap to come!), my time has been limited beyond belief.  I have so many exciting posts on the horizon...from more nude lip color and Jouer and Chanel Holiday 2013 releases to a couple marvelous hair styling tools and the most covetable foundation yet (Suqqu!), there are many good things to come on Beauty Professor in the next week or two.  I hope life has been wonderful for you...what is new?

xoxo,

  2. Hi
    Another beautiful lip combo.
    I just bought a cheap lip gloss that is nearly identical to Charm. So will try layering it over some of my lipsticks.
    I had never really done it before so I'm a bit excited.
    Really looking forward to your Jouer reviews as I have been looking to purchase a couple of their lipsticks and blushes.

    Have a great forthcoming week and I look forward to what you have coming up next

    Julie xoxo

    1. Hello Julie,

      Thank you...how wonderful that you have a less expensive version of Charm to try...enjoy layering it!

      I have just begun to edit my Jouer Holiday 2013 pictures...so much to share! I also filmed a little video on it when traveling earlier this week, so it should be live in a few days ; )

      I hope your Sunday is wonderful!

      xoxo,
