When it comes to choosing the perfect lip product, staying power is my biggest concern. I want something that won't budge or smudge from morning to night. As a shopping editor, I'm constantly testing out new formulas that last. After hearing plenty of buzz, I decided to treat myself to this luxe Dior Addict Lip Tattoo Long-Wearing Color Tint ($30), and it is truly the best beauty purchase I've made in ages.
The product is lightweight, yet it packs a punch with major color payoff.
The product is lightweight, yet it packs a punch with major color payoff. Once you apply it, you can't even feel it on your pout; it's as if your lips are bare. Within seconds of swiping on the product with its doe-foot applicator, it fuses to your lips like a tattoo. Dior touts that it will stay on for 10 hours, but I disagree — my lips are stained for 15 hours with this magical formula.
"I'm delighted that we succeeded in creating a lip stain that 'tattoos' the lips with a luminous finish and the feeling of bare lips," said Peter Philips, the creative and image director for Dior Makeup. "Impeccable long wear in a beautiful range of tints."
If you're looking for a luxe lip tint that is truly effective, give this a try ASAP. I personally love the Natural Pink hue, but I'll be putting the rest of the shades on my wish list. I need one for every purse!
