Wearing Red Stockings

The one thing I keep telling myself whenever I walk into a department store is I have too many lipglosses yet what is the first thing I check out whenever I reach the cosmetic counters? Yep you guessed it. Lipglosses.

 They’re like candy! You know having too much can make you sick (or broke in this case) but you keep reaching for more.

Anyway, I woke up one Saturday morning realizing that I have not had any good red lipgloss. (Makeup isn’t usually the first thought that enters my mind whenever I wake up but that was a very weird morning) I love red lipstick and will wear it anywhere anytime but there are times when applying red lipstick, which needs to be really precise, can be fussy and time-consuming. And the more practical version of this hot red lippie is of course lipgloss.

 So I went to SEIBU Grand Indonesia that day to pick up Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Reflect in Red Stockings. I must tell you that I was so giddy looking at this gloss on the tester stand because it’s the most gorgeous red shade with loads of shimmer I’ve ever seen! On my lips, the red is quite sheer so worn alone, it’s the perfect product to use when you want to create that “transparant red” effect. Worn over my favorite red lipstick, MAC Russian Red, can also transform the matte texture into a more glam-looking, ready to party, scarlett lippie. Me likey!!

Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Reflect feels lightweight and non-sticky and another thing I like about it is after the gloss is gone – some of the red pigments stay on my lips which create an almost stained, just-bitten, Angeline Jolie-esque pout.

Okay, so I might be stretching it a little on the Angeline Jolie part – though I swear that’s what I saw from the bathroom mirror today :P – but all in all, this is a lovely gloss and I am not sorry I added it to my already-overflowing makeup bag!
