If you decide to make tonight a black-tie affair, Swedish blogger Antonia (LOVE!) found just the thing to help. Scroll down for a peek in today’s guest post.

Dior Addict Lipgloss in Black-Tie Plum


When the Dior Holiday 2010 Collection finally arrived at stores in Sweden, of course I was first in line. I got the the Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Flash in the shade Black-Tie Plum 982, one of four glosses of its kind in the collection. Two of them are completely new colors, but the two others, Black-Tie Plum 982 being one of them, are repromotes.


This season has been all about darker plummy lip shades, and this particular lip gloss is not for the faint of heart. You can wear it lightly as a stain, but that can be difficult with the included brush.

The color reminds me of plums, red wine and, in certain lightning, even purple ink! It has a little red shimmer in it, too.

Not too thick nor sticky at all, with great color payoff, I’d call it perfect if not for the price — 28 euros in Europe (US Sephora: $26.50)! For that price, I really hope you think it looks pretty on me! 🙂

    That picture is far more beautiful than Dior’s promo picture! Maybe if they had used your pic I would have been tempted by the collection. This is such a gorgeous color on you!

    I thought you were Russian, no?

  15. Mindy D says:

    I absolutely love this lip color! I tried it on in Sephora and fell in love. However, not with the price. What do you think would be a good dupe for this product? Happy New Year! 🙂

  16. Rozae says:

    The color looks gorgeous on you, will make a trip to Sephora to try it.

  17. Stephanie says:

    I bought this color back in October when I was in the US and after I tried it I didn’t like it because of the brush. It’s been sitting in my box of lip products getting no love but you made me want to get it out and give it another try! Thanks!! It looks great on you!
