Hello! This is going to be an exciting review because we’re gonna be talking about Dior’s latest lip sensation, the Dior Lip Tattoo or the Dior Addict Lip Tint ($30). It’s just been released recently and was sold out in Sephora for a few weeks. They might have restocked on a few colors now, but I’m pretty sure those won’t last. This is definitely a lipstick worth hoarding for. It’s meant to be a no-transfer weightless lip tint that stains the lips like a tattoo for at least 10 hours, according to Dior Beauty. It can be worn alone or can be used as a lip primer. That seems really promising, right?
First of all, I love the look of this Dior Lip Tattoo. The packaging is so cute and pretty. So Dior. It feels matte with the Dior brand embossed on one side of it. The brush applicator is small, precise and robust. When you first twist the cap, you could sense a menthol-vanilla-ish scent. Upon application, you’ll notice a slight cooling effect on the lips and the formula is very fluid. It’s definitely not like your most matte liquid lipsticks. This one feels more like a liquid lip stain, to the tune of Giorgio Armani’s Lip Magnet, only slightly cheaper.
It may take a few more swipes before there’s enough coverage on your lips due to this product’s liquid and slightly streaky nature. It kinda settles on the fine lines of your inner lips, but it’s not sticky nor very drying like most matte liquid lipsticks. Though it may eventually slightly dry your lips after hours and hours of wearing it, but you can always top it with your favorite lip gloss or lip balm.
Once the product settles, perhaps around 3-5 minutes, it’ll definitely become transfer-proof, kiss-proof and bullet-proof, LOL. But yeah, it’s true, the Dior Addict Lip Tattoo won’t budge. The effect is more like a lip stain or a very soft matte. It’s very long-lasting as well. I get a good 6-8 hours and beyond of wear on this. Taking it off can be a challenge because it’s super staining that a waterproof makeup remover might struggle to get rid of it. But seriously, who wants to get rid of this lipstick’s beautiful shade?
- Dior Lip Tattoo in 491 Natural Rosewood – Love the versatility of this shade. The muted dusty rose hue will definitely fit on everyone’s natural lip color and it’s so great for everyday wear. This should definitely be the “my lips but better” kind of shade.
- Dior Lip Tattoo in 771 Natural Berry – Gorgeous berry-plum shade. Also a very versatile yet very commanding shade. Don’t be surprised if people will tell you that you look so Maj. ????
Final words. These lip products are really well-made. You’ll miss ¼ of your life if you won’t try it. Just kidding. But seriously, I do think that this is Dior’s answer to the coveted Armani Lip Magnets. The nice thing is, with Dior, probably almost all the shades are crazily pigmented. But with the Armani ones, some of the lighter shades are not that pigmented. But I love the Armani a lot because those never dried my lips and they’re slightly thicker in consistency than Dior. Anyhow, whichever you prefer between the two, they won’t disappoint you.
The Dior Lip Tattoo is available in the following stores: Sephora, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Dillard’s, Lord & Taylor & Macy’s.
Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend, ‘Till Then…
