Dior Fall 2016 Skyline Collection Lip Products - Review and Swatches

Today we're talking lippies! Glosses, and balms, and lip colours - oh my!

These are the lip products from Dior's Fall 2016 Skyline Collection.

Let's start off with the gloss.  The Lip Glow Pomade in 'Universal Pink' ($41.00 CAD) is not just a gloss, it also takes care of your lips.  It comes in a squeezy tube with a curved and flexible, soft plastic applicator.

The pomeade went on mostly clear, but with a slightly milky transparency.  Although I did not see any ingredients that indicated so, the gloss had a light minty scent.  However, a few minutes into wearing it, I felt a bit of a swelling/plumping effect (similar to the Dior Lip Maximizer, but not as intense), which I wasn't a fan of.

Next up is the Dior Addict Lip Glow in 'Lilac' ($41.00 CAD), which wears like a tinted lip balm - it gave my lips a juicy pink tint.  It was easy to apply, like a more firm and non-greasy version of a lip balm.

Now we get to the lipsticks.  To me, the Dior Addict Lipsticks ($43.00 CAD) apply and wear less like a standard solid lipstick and more like a tinted, light-wearing, sheer-ish balm.

First up is 'Black Tie', a berry blue-based red.  'Black Tie' is definitely the most pigmented one of the four that I have.

'Too Much' *cue Spice Girls song to play in your head* is a sheer coral red.  I found that this one moved around a bit when I rubbed my lips together, which would result in patchiness.

'Sophisticated' is a slightly frosty purple-y brown.

Finally, 'Fusion' is a pinky papaya.
