The New Dior Addict Gloss and Dior Addict Extreme in 343 Spring Ball

I’m sure you’ve been reading about these new Dior Addict Extremes and glosses. There are 4 star shades, them being Spring Ball, Diablotine, Delice and Princess. As you know, lip colours show up differently against different skin tones. My skin tone tends to pull out all the pinks in a lip colour, while others might pull out the oranges (hi Sunny! Heh!).

To me, Spring Ball is a peachy pink colour. The Dior Addict Extreme is moisturizing and it gives more pigment compared to your normal Dior Addicts. The texture is just as moisturizing and balmy but it isn’t so slippery that it bleeds. Dior Addict Extremes are one of my favourite lipsticks and Spring Ball is great on its own or paired with a smokey eye.

The Addict Glosses are a new line and you can choose the different finishes you like from creamy to sparkly. Spring Ball is one of the sparkly ones, called the shimmer effect (I have a couple of cream finishes aka pure effect to show you in another post) but the sparkles are super fine. If you see the picture above, you’ll notice how beautiful it is in the tube. I am not a fan of sparkly lip products but these are done so subtly that you can only see them if you’re up close. From far away, the sparkles pick up the light and reflect them in the loveliest way. The only gripe I have is the sparkles transfer all over my mouth when I remove them only with tissue. I have to make sure I use a remover to get all the little glitters off my face. Below is how it looks applied on my arm.

But we all know lipsticks and glosses are for lips. Hence, the picture below, Spring Ball gloss on top of Spring Ball lipstick, and Spring Ball nails to match. My lips sure look plumper than usual, eh? That’s the Spring Ball gloss πŸ™‚

The glosses retail for RM95 while the Dior Addict Extreme costs RM100. You can already find these at your nearest Dior counter. I am not a gloss girl, but if I have to choose, I’d go for these. Have you tried anything?

  • The price for Dior Addict Extreme had increased slightly eh?

    • You would be right, Fiona. There’s a price hike across the product range πŸ™

  • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    WOW ok, that’s it. I love it on you! I’ve been kind of meh about these but it’s so amazing on you! Dang it Dior is killing me lately haha!

    • Really? I’m glad you think so πŸ™‚ I like enabling in any way I can! And I absolutely love Dior, so I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t biased. That said, if it’s really meh, I’ll tell you too…

  • Yay for matching lips and tips! Sunny and you totally convinced me that I need the lipstick, it’s everything I don’t already have, haha! I love how it looks more pink on you, I think it might end up looking like that on me too!

    • You do you do! I love the Spring Ball Addict Extreme. It’s definitely more pink on me, and it brightens a smokey eye so well. Give it a try *nudge* πŸ™‚

  • Liz

    I would spank you back except that a blog slap fight would be really unbecoming of us at this point, LOL! I’m never convinced that pale high-end glosses are worth it until I see it on the lips — then, BAM! Wallet is crying already. You make a good case for these delicate pinks!

    • Aww c’mon! A spanking fight will be fun… and we bring everybody in and have a bitchy spank fest. LMAO!
      In all seriousness, I’d recommend the Addict Extreme over the gloss, unless you’re a fan of glitter. Their cream ones are so much better! I have 2 of them, will be posted soon-ish πŸ™‚

  • OMG one of the most flattering combo ever! m totally loving the lipstick!

    • You have to check it out, Parita. It’s very flattering πŸ™‚

  • Sarah

    Hi Lily,

    Looks lovely on you! I was tempted, but ended up only getting the nail polish which I am in love with! And yeah, the price hike! πŸ™

    • The price hike is getting a bit worrisome. Dior is not the only one. Nearly all luxury brands increased their prices. I wish there was some way to curb these things. Perhaps lower taxes will help. LOL!

  • Catherine (@bcrueltyfree)

    Spring Ball kind of reminds me of NARS Orgasm blush (I feel like Orgasm lip gloss is shimmerier than the blush). I’m not a huge gloss person so I’ll skip on it, but looks lovely

    • I’m not a huge gloss person either, Catherine… but I love the Addict Extreme lipsticks. Have you tried those? They are so comfortable on the lips πŸ™‚

  • Laura

    It’s so pretty, I’m almost tempted to buy it! (But sadly my bank account doesn’t allow me lol)
    I like Diablotine too, if only for the name coz it reminds me of my fave game. XD

    • Don’t worry Laura. They’re here to stay, so you can always get it later. I have my eyes on both Diablotine and Delice too. They look super yummy πŸ™‚

  • OMG I am SO in love with that Spring Ball lipstick! I think I’ve seen other reviews/swatches of this but none of them made me want it as much as your pics do. I guess you’re right about your skin tone bringing out the color–the color on your arm really pops and is so gorgeous! πŸ˜› Dior’s Addict Extreme will definitely be my next balmy lipstick purchase!

    • Thanks for the kind words Becca! If you do purchase it, do let me know which shade you chose πŸ™‚

  • AhCapp

    Wooooo, lovely lippies you have! :))) I will have to check them out during the Metro 20% off this fri here in Singapore! πŸ™‚

    I’m a big fan of Dior lippies!! πŸ˜‰

    Thank you for sharing!

    • Hi AhCapp, Dior lippies are amazing. One of my favourites too! I hope you find a shade you love this Friday πŸ™‚

  • Hey Lily, I loooove how Spring Ball looks on you! Thanks for the link love. It’s funny how my skin tone really picks orange (and green/khaki) out of every shade! It looks different but it’s adorable in any case, so it’s a win win!

    • You’re welcome Sunny. It’s so interesting how different skin tones pull out the different tones and hues of certain colours. I might just have to find out more about it πŸ™‚

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Wow, amazing, girl, your lips look so good!

    • Thanks babe πŸ™‚

  • Ooooh, these look like perfect everyday, work appropriate shades for nails and lips! I’ve been thinking about moving into the professional world lately (once I graduate in the fall), and thinking about how I’m so not prepared T_T

    • They are perfect for the professional working environment. Not too bright but not too subdued and understated either. Oh, Fall is going to be exciting for you! Don’t worry too much about it. Be prepared as much as you can, take it as it come and embrace it πŸ™‚

  • Liyana

    Ahh spring ball looks so irresistible from the tube. I might just have to get the gloss at least. Thanks for the swatches. πŸ™‚

    • I know right? The tiny shimmers and sparkles are super gorgeous πŸ™‚

  • Spring Ball looks so pink and pretty on you, Lily! I swatched this at Sephora and it was a lot more orange on my lips. I ended up picking up Venus because it was the pink I was looking for! πŸ™‚ The comfort of these is amazing for a glittery gloss!

    • Hey Kristen, I tend to make lots of lipsticks look more pink than they are. I’m really not sure why that is. I have to check out Venus to see what it looks like. I’m sure it’s gorgeous on you πŸ™‚

  • Lily oh my! Spring Ball looks exquisite on you! I might need to take another look at this one.
    Your lips do look plump, so very beautiful!

    • Thank Taylot πŸ™‚ The gloss does make my lips look fuller!
