Sweet Lips With Dior Addict Cherie Bow Charmante

I love my Dior Addicts. Some are pigmented, some are sheer. Charmante is part of the Cherie Bow Collection for Spring 2013, and I have been wearing it nearly every day.

Dior Addict lipsticks are smooth and buttery, but not too much slip that it bleeds or feathers. Charmante is no different.Ā I find it keeps my lips moisturized, without any signs of dryness. I don’t have dry lips to start with, but some lipsticks do make my lips flake. While it is very comfortable to wear Charmante, the wear time is quite limited. It stays on for about 2 to 3 hours tops, and I’d have to reapply. Not that I’m complaining though. It’s hard to get through a tube of lipstick as it is. It’s a dream to reapply, no signs of patchiness. It’s just like swiping on lip balm.

Charmante looks coral in the tube, but because of its sheerness, my natural lip colour peeks through.Ā I would have liked it to be a little more opaque, but the softness of this colour oozes sweetness. If you are a girly girl, you would really like this shade. If you want a barely there shine with a hint of pinky coral, you must get Charmante. If you want a lipstick that goes with nearly everything, this is also your shade. I would also think that Charmante is the type of shade that looks different on every lip. Depending on your natural lip colour, Charmante can be more pink or coral.

I have worn this lipstick in a few looks I have done, and I’ve noticed the colour looks different in some photos. It’s very likely due to the different lighting, but that just makes Charmante less boring. You can check it out here (paired with grey eyeshadow) and here (paired with pink eyeshadow). Picture below shows how much my natural lip colour shines through (quite a lot!). On my lips, Charmante looks more pink but on my hand in the photo above, it looks more coral.

  • Really pretty shade on you Lily šŸ™‚ Gotta love the formula of these lipsticks, they last long, even the lighter ones šŸ™‚ The hint of coral makes it perfect šŸ™‚

    • Hey Teri, I do wish the coral shows up even more though! And yes, I love this formula

  • I wish this was just a tad more pigmented, closer to the the way it looks in the tube because its such a gorgeous color! Nonetheless it’s beautiful, and I’ve been wanting the try this formula for so long!

    • You’re right. It would be awesome if it was a bit more pigmented! You should try it. I also love their Rouge de Serums. Can’t believe I haven’t blogged about them yet

  • liyeun

    It really looks like ur lip color!!! Lol. I will skip this although I love dior addicts. I never like spring colours. Hehehe.

    • Yeah, it’s better to get more pigmented ones. Spring isn’t my favourite either…. I can’t wait for Fall collections though!

  • I think this is such a sweet and pretty color on you! šŸ™‚

    • Thanks Joyce šŸ™‚ It’s a very easy colour to wear!

  • Eeee so pretty I can’t take it!! šŸ˜› I looove sheer peachy/coraly balmy lipsticks like this and DEFINITELY need this one! I have been meaning to try the Dior Addict lipsticks for a long time. My goal is to try all the high-end brands’ versions and see which is my fave. So far my favorite is hands-down the Burberry Lip Mists. I also tried the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine which was ok but not as good as I had hoped. I also really want to try Giorgio Armani’s Rouge d’Armani Sheers–I have a feeling I will love those! šŸ˜€

    • Oh, I also want to try GA and Burberry lip products. Been reading too much about them. I just haven’t decided which shade to get. It’s harder when I don’t personally swatch them… You have to try Dior lip products though. Try Rouge de Serums if you can. They are good for your lips!

  • Charmante looks so much pinker on you! It has a hint of coral on me. It’s just so easygoing. Kind of like a nude coral if that even exists.

    • I know right? I remember seeing yours and it sure looked more coral. Interesting how it turns out different šŸ™‚

  • Sofia

    I love pinkish coral lipsticks and that looks gorgeous on you!

    • Thanks Sofia šŸ™‚

  • Dior Addict lipstick is definitely my favorites when it comes to natural and beautiful lipsticks. Charmante is beautiful and wearable.

    • Definitely wearable!! I love my Dior Addicts <3

    Pretty! I haven’t tried a Dior lippie yet. My lippie ban is almost expired and I need a reward. Maybe I’ll scope Dior. šŸ™‚

    • Yes you have to! Yay for bans ending. My no buy will be ending in 2 weeks aaaaaaand counting!!

  • I love colors that are easy to wear and looks nice for anytime of the day! Love the pink shade with a hint of coral, lovely on you Lily!

    • Thanks Meryl šŸ™‚
