Looking for a lip plumper that provides results without burning or stinging? A product that will instead leave your lips feeling soft and hydrated? Look no further. Dior Addict Lip Maximizer is my go-to lip plumper! Here’s why:
The packaging of this product is gorgeous. I love that it is square-shaped. When you set it down it does not roll around, or off the surface. You can set it on its side, or stand it up vertically and it stays put. There is a silver knob located on the top applicator end, which gives you a little more control when holding the wand to apply the product. I have tried a few other lip plumping products by different brands, and nothing compares to the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer. After applying the product you can see results within just a few minutes. The formula glides on effortlessly, and the wand applicator is small therefore, you can really place the product exactly where you want it.
Pictured below is the one I purchased in shade “Pink 001”:

Upon placing the product on your lips there is a tingling sensation. The best way I can describe this is by comparing it to a “cooling” feeling. It reminds me of the tingle you get when you put on a mint lip balm, and then proceed to go outside into the cold weather. The sensation you experience is not overpowering by any means, and there is absolutely no pain, and no burning. The product consistency is not thin or watery, but it is not overly thick; it is a nice in-between of both extremes, and it smells like vanilla and mint.
If you are looking for a hint of colour with a glossy finish this shade is perfect for a daytime look, it is very wearable for around the office. If you prefer a shade for a nighttime look, or a more dramatic look, you can play this shade up. You can first apply a darker shade of lipstick and then apply the Lip Maximizer over top. This doesn’t change the colour of your lipstick and it adds a glossy finish, therefore, it dupe’s as a clear gloss as well.
The only downfall is that it is a little expensive. I picked mine up at Sephora and it retails for C$40.00. However, in my opinion it is worth the money. Having used mine daily for 3 weeks, there is still a lot of product left and it does not take much to get the effect you desire. I give it a 10 out of 10 rating. It is absolutely wonderful! You see results immediately, and as the days go on the results last. The formula is not too sticky and does not dry out your lips. The product is very easy to work with and can be used for a day, or night look, which makes it a winner in my eyes!
