Just like many women out there, I was searching „no transfer“ lip product for a long time. Probably, ever since I was fifteen. You know you want a lip product that want smudge and you’ll be able to kiss your significant other without making them (and yourself!) feel stressed. Now, enters Dior Addict Lip Tattoo. When I read that this product has comfortable formula, ten hour hold and no transfer finish, it was no-brainer to pick up a product and try it out.
When I first tried Dior Addict Lip Tattoo it left me feeling little bit weird. I seemed patchy and too watery. If you have ever used Chanel Vitalumière Aqua foundation, it has exact same feel but for your lips. It’s so lightweight you immediately doubt its’ durability and (for some reason) its’ pigmentation. But when you understand how to apply it-it is the best lip tint you’ll ever meet. (Same goes for foundation mentioned above.) The product itself comes in simple matte packaging which is in a color of your shade (pink packaging for pink shade). It has standard foam applicator that hugs your lips perfectly, so weather you have thin or fuller lips-application will be easy. Dior Addict Lip Tattoo currently comes in only six shades, but I find in that small range you’ll find color that works for you, for sure. (Even though I wouldn’t mind several more colors)
*note: the color I’m using on photos below is 771 natural berry. Also, I’ve applied two layers of product. And yes, I’m not very photogenic person and I died little bit inside to take this photos. Seriously.
How to use it: I found the best way is to put the product on your bare lips as you would any other lip gloss or liquid lipstick. In theory, that means with extra caution and steady hand! Don’t be surprised if it looks sheer. If you like, you can put it in thicker layer so that it looks a bit more pigmented. However, this is a tint- not highly pigmented liquid lipstick. Know, thicker the layer, it will take longer time to set and „tattoo“ your lips. After you’ve applied the tint DON’T SMACK YOUR LIPS!!! For us ladies, it’s like an immediate reaction when we apply any lip product. I found that smacking your lips before the product sets makes uneven clumping of the product on your lip line. Let it set for a minute and carry on with your day.
Would I buy it again? Yes! 100 percent yes! As I am relatively low key with make up having full on bold lip every day is not really my thing. If you are in a need for polished and/or bold lip but with comfort of no-makeup feeling Dior Addict Lip Tattoo is the product for you. If you are a mom and avoiding wearing lipstick because you want to kiss your baby all the time- buy this. If you are a business woman who is in a stress of wearing lipstick so it doesn’t smudge during meetings- buy this. If you are shy and just easing into wearing makeup, this would be an excellent investment. With $30 price tag, this isn’t a cheap product, but because of the comfort it gives and no transfer finish, it is worth every penny.
