Adding a Touch of Gold: Dior Addict Lipstick – Casual Gold

by xin on June 13, 2012

As part of the Dior Summer Croisette Collection, I have reviewed the Swimming Pool, and Dior has 3 shades of Dior Addict Lipsticks, and Casual Gold (414)  is one of the shades.

Dior Addict Lipstick - Casual Gold

I like the semi silver and gold packaging – it looks elegant and it looks like a space lip stick!

From the tube, Casual Gold looks like a pigmented honey-brown shade, but in fact, it is very very sheer.

Dior Addict Lipstick - Casual Gold on Lips

On its own, you get a sheer light gold tone, with a hint of gloss. It you have pale skin, it doesn’t really compliment.

I looked pale if I didn’t have any other color on my face.  To work this around, I decided to use a dark red lipstick that I hardly wear due to the darkness, and I sheered it out with this Casual Gold.

Surprisingly the result turns out rather well :D

The dark red was quite flat, and a layer of Casual Gold gave it shine and moisture.

I don’t think I will wear Casual Gold on its own, but I have been pairing it with rather unflattering lipsticks so the colors look more alive.

If you have a tanned skin, this might look good on you!

Hey, I thought it looked great on both photos! It should work great as pale lips to pair with dramatic eyes ;-)

I have pale skin so I don’t think this would work well on me on its own. But it looks lovely layered on top of lipstick.

I don’t think I could pull off the colour on it’s own, but over lipstick it looks quite nice! :D Looks like something Connie could pull off as well given her pale lips :P
