It may sound crazy, but despite owning dozens of tubes of lip color, I pretty much live in gloss.

dioraddictlippolishI do have my faves though, and newly on top of the pile is Dior Addict Lip Polish.

I am proud owner of the pink tone, Fresh Expert, but it comes in excellent coral and beige, and I’m smitten.

This product is actually based on the secrets of pro makeup artists, who backstage will roll a cotton swab along models’ lips to exfoliate; then they apply petroleum jelly to prime the surface and multiply the shine of the gloss topcoat.

This gloss has a cool spin-on applicator, which picks up just the right amount of product and then rolls it uniformly onto the lips, but also massages the lips as it applies the product!
