Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Orange Pareo Review & Swatches

There’s something to be said for a shade of orange that you can wear on lips easily.

And that my dears, is exactly what Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Orange Pareo is. An easy to wear shade of orange gloss!

Loves it!

Right on trend for Summer the new, limited edition Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Orange Pareo is a shocking lovely shade of neon orange shimmer.

Scary in the tube this orange doesn’t look like it’ll be easy to pull off but actually it’s easy enough to sport and easier still to enjoy the Summer orange trend in style and simplicity without looking over done or gaudy!

This is a true orange shade with golden sparkle. It isn’t terribly pigmented which is why it’s so easy to wear. The shade has a slight orange tint that has an “I just had an orange ice pop” finish.

Addict Ultra Gloss has always been my favorite gloss from the collection for the dazzling finish alone but the formula is lovely as well. This is a feather light texture that keeps lips nicely moisturized through the wear. The gloss isn’t overly thick but gives the appearance of such on lips so they look fuller and plumper. It isn’t tacky or sticky but still manages to have a lovely wear of around four hours. The brush applicator makes it easy to apply, layer, and build.

Orange Pareo is a must if you want to work orange but are simply too scared to do so. This makes the trend easy and fun!

Loves this one.

Well worth picking up for Summer.

Dior’s Summer 2012 Collection launches shortly (some counters already have it) and will be available online as well at

P.S. Dontcha just love this shade of golden peachy pink goodness on my lids from Glamatronic Couture?

    the world is really into orange nowadays, yeah? 🙂 its a gorgeous colour, just the mood for spring/ summer there. and here down under in australia, it gives the happy mood to go thru the gloomy cold autumn/ winter.

    Of course you love it. If the packaging said “Wet n Wild” you would automatically hate it.

    • the Muse

      cee, I don’t you’re very familiar with my site. I’ve reviewed a ton of wet n wild products and muse approved them for purchase. please try to refrain from being snarky for no reason.

      Wow that was uncalled for…. This person obviously isn’t familiar with you’re blog Muse, because if she were, she would know that you’ve recommended wet n’ wild shadows to us countless times. You’re blog is amazing Muse, don’t let comments like this get to you!

      • the Muse
