Dior Addict Lip Tattoo Long-Wear Colored Tint: Review and Swatches
Coming this May, Dior has some exciting new lip products! Boasting six mouth-watering summer-ready shades, the Dior Addict Lip Tattoo Long-Wear Colored Tint ($36 CAD) features a weightless and long-lasting formulation that packs a punch of color. To see some swatches and read my review of the formulation, click.....

Packaging:
Housed in an opaque matte tube capped with the iconic Dior knob design, the Lip Tattoos have a simple doe-foot applicator. Raised embossing of the Dior logo can be found on the sides of the tube but all in all, the packaging is very simple and chic.

Formulation:
With a slick liquid formulation, the Dior Addict Lip Tattoos feel super cooling and refreshing when first applied on the lips and the texture sets to a weightless natural sheen. All three colors I have here are very vibrant, and just a thin coat provides an even and intense pigmentation. The finish is fairly smudge-proof but the color will transfer. In terms of wear, there was a noticeable variation so read my full breakdown below to learn more about each shade. After one to two hours, the stain felt surprisingly hydrating. When I pursed my lips together, the tint almost felt like it was exuding a moisturizing oil! With that said, the product will start to feel drying after a few hours so make sure you have a good balm handy.

Overall, I quite like these. The concept isn't super original but the execution is nice. Compared to the Benefit tints (ex. Posietint and Lollitint), the pigmentation is a lot more intense. Compared to THE FACE SHOP Lipquid and the New York Color Smooch Proof Liquid Lip Stain, the Dior Addict Lip Tattoos are much longer lasting. However, I wouldn't say these are the best lip stains I've tried. Both considering price and how well they fade away (see below for an elaboration on this), the Sephora Rouge Infusion 10 Hour Lip Stain and the YSL Glossy Stains fare much better.

451 Natural Coral (Nordstrom Exclusive): This is a gorgeous papaya coral that's perfect for the summertime. Formulation-wise, it is the best out of the three. The application is superb and the color fades evenly.
881 Natural Pink: A bright Barbie pink, this shade required some extra blending during application to avoid a subtle milky residue. The color faded nicely.
771 Natural Berry: In terms of color, this gorgeous marsala wine is my favorite out of the three. However, the formulation is very troublesome. The application is uneven so you definitely need to take the time to perfect everything. Where the shade really falls apart is how it faded. Within just an hour (with no eating or drinking), the color migrated to the center of the lips, making it appear as if I were one of Dracula's brides. Things got even worse when after less than four hours (and only with minimal drinking), most of the color faded, leaving an unattractive dark outline around my lips. Therefore, I definitely do not recommend this shade as the other two are far superior.
