Dior Lip Maximizer Should Be X Rated

I received this a while ago, actually. Probably 2 months ago? Or more? You have probably heard about Dior Lip Maximizer before. Its full name is Dior Addict Lip Maximizer High Volume Lip Plumper. So you’ve heard of it before (or not), but have you tried it? I read somewhere that this is one of the bestsellers in Japan. Do you want sexier lips? Fuller and plumper lips? Smoother and more moisturized lips?


Dior Lip Maximizer

Let me tell you straight up that I have termed this Lip Maximizer “Lip-gasm”. In the tube, it looks no different to other Dior glosses, except for the fact that this is a translucent pale pink with shimmer. Yes, the one I have is shimmery and absolutely gorgeous. Instead of a little brush like the ones that come with the glosses, I get a doe foot applicator. I applied it on my lips, and thought it felt a little sticky. Wait for a few seconds, and my lips started to have a mild throbbing sensation that isn’t unpleasant. A short while later, my lips became all tingly with a cooling sensation that is orgasmic. I am absolutely addicted to that sensation. For something this cool, I had to let the little ones try. Both had the same reaction. Eyes look bored, then eyes pop up wide open, lips turn into a huge grin, then giggles. Ashlyn termed it “spicy” while Chloe just giggled and said “Awesome! Again!!”.

Lip-gasm aside, does the product really work? Yes. It makes my lips smoother, lines less visible and definitely more moisturized. I have been using this every day and while I don’t notice a huge change on my lips (c’mon, this is no Botox), I do notice my lips look and feel more supple. The collagen and hyaluronic filling spheres in the ingredients definitely helped my lips look better. I like to use it right after my skincare, before applying my makeup so that the Lip-gasm in the tube can do its magic on my lips. When I apply my lipstick last, my lips are prepped and ready to go.

When the lipstick on my lips are worn off, I reach for Lip-gasm first. I told you I’m addicted to the sensation, didn’t I? I sometimes leave my lips nude, I sometimes reapply my lipstick. I can see this is something I would continue using on a daily basis and just writing about it now makes me want to reach for it… FYI, it is 1:50AM at the time of writing 😛 Here is an obligatory before after picture.

I have not tried other lip plumpers and have no intention to. Yes, it’s how happy I am with Dior Lip Maximizer. Do try this out because I think it’s no hype. This thing is for real. I really like it! It works wonders on my uneven lips. Ashlyn loves the spicy and tries her luck asking for it frequently, but I have a thing against kids and makeup. Teenagers wear makeup, not toddlers. Period.

Gah… you know what? I’m giving in… I’m gonna apply my lip-gasm now.

Oh, and before I forget, if you’re in KL this Saturday, check out this post. You get a one hour one-to-one private makeup coaching session with Dior’s makeup artists!

    Looks like a nice product to try! But if you were to apply lipstick after this lip maximizer, wouldn’t the lipstick slide off or something?

    • When the Dior makeup artist used it on me, he blot it off first. But I like how moisturized it makes my lips feel so I just apply the lipstick on top. You can also use this on top of your lipstick of course, but I don’t like to get that doe foot applicator dirty 😛

  • I don’t really need a plumping gloss, but I do like these sorts of things for moisture! But I think I could probably settle for another Dior lip gloss instead 😉

    • Yes another gloss will be nice. Their new range looks really good!

  • me too. i want it! and i don’t even really like plumping things !

    • Haha! I think the title worked. Lol!

  • I thought this looks a little gimmicky, and that’s why I’ve never thought about trying it! Now that you seem so positive about it, I’ll definitely look into it! Think there’s a different edition with the summer collection as well!

    • Yeah, I read about the summer release! But seriously, Sunny, it’s the lipgasm I’m addicted to. I mean, it does keep my lips well hydrated, but the tingly sensation is awesome. Hahaha!

  • I don’t know if you remember, but Dior used to have an Ultra Addict Lipgloss (I think that was the line) in 001 — it was basically a clear lip gloss. For whatever reason, this lipgloss was the queen of all clear glosses, it gave the most shiny, lacquered finish and it would legitimately self-level. I heard a rumour somewhere that after they discontinued it, Dior Lip Maximizer was supposed to be its replacement. I’ve always been kind of doubtful, but this makes me want to try it!

    • Maybe you should try it and see if it’s any different. Normal glosses don’t give that tingly feeling though…

  • I just bought my second tube last weekend and I’m addicted to it day and night. I love the minty smell and the tingly feel and the pouty effect it gives … well, not Angelina Jolie proportions of course but it does make lips look just that bit sexier :-p I usually apply it before I put on my makeup in the mornings and let it settle in a tad before applying lipstick or lip gloss. I love love love it and will most likely go for a third tube when I’m done with this one.

    • Oh I’m glad you like this too! Actually I have no need to make my lips fuller, I’m pretty happy with how it is, but it’s the lipgasm. Hahaha!

  • Oooooh this is SO pretty on you! I love that pinky tint and it really does makeup your lips look juicy and full! 😀

    • Thanks Becca 🙂 It’s fun wearing this lip maximizer. Lol!

  • Catherine (@bcrueltyfree)

    I don’t really like lip plumpers, but this one does look beautiful in the tube. I feel like plumping glosses are often kind of gimmicky – I mean, gloss makes your lips look plumper regardless of whether it’s a lip plumper. But meh. The color is lovely and it sounds like the formula is great and moisturizing, regardless of whether it makes more “plumping” difference than average hydrating lip gloss

    • It might work for those with really thin lips? I’ll buy this just for that tingly sensation. Hahahaha!

  • Liz

    LOL @ 1am lip-gasms!

    I tend to avoid lip plumpers but if I were to spring for one, this would be it!

    • Haha! I don’t even think of it as a lip plumper… even though it totally is 😛

  • Claire

    I got a sample a while back and I wasn’t expecting anything tbh, I also thought it would be just another gloss but I agree with you, you actually can see the results. It’s like a glossy lipbalm. I also like the by terry one, they are similar in performance but not in texture/formulation. Dior impresses me more and more 😀

    • Oh, I love Dior. I mean, there are some duds, which brand doesn’t, but I love MOST of their products, even including skin care!

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Sounds good. I have always been a bit wary about lip-plumping products. Do they even work? And if they do, aren’t they harmful for your lips? But again, this definitely sounds good!

    • I never thought about that – I mean, what makes you think they can be harmful?

  • Rose

    I have Bite’s Cinnamon Plumping Oil and it has that same tingly sensation (plus I love Cinnamon), but I tend to reach for my Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Protector. It doesn’t have the plumping effect, but it does make your lips appear plumper and it has a range a sheers colors.

    BTW, Happy (belated) Birthday ChloeAsh and my makeup diet has been hard! Everytime I hit the dept. stores, I can’t help but drift over to the makeup counters. So hard to leave without some makeup purchase – though my new clothing and shoe purchases make it a little easier! 🙂

    • Hi Rose, I haven’t tried anything from Bite, but have pretty good things about their lip products. Thank you for your well wishes! And my makeup ban has been going well. However, it’s only April, so there are a few more months to go!!

  • ahahah lipgasm! Who can possibly resist that? 😉 I love the effect this gives, and it’s good to know it’s just a tingling (and not a burning stinging pain which is why I usually steer clear of lip plumpers LOL).

    • OMG. I didn’t know some lip plumpers give a burning stinging pain! That would really suck…

  • BooBooNinja

    This post made me laugh so hard. Thanks for the good time, my friend!

    • Glad you enjoyed it 😛
