Dior Jazz Club Creme De Gloss Lip Glosses: Hello, Nude Lips

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews


The two Creme de Gloss lip glosses ($26) in Dior’s new Jazz Club collection are melting my heart.


With their high shine, rich color and non-sticky texture, I guess it was inevitable, le sigh…

Both Sweet Praline (431; I believe it’s a brand new shade) and Fig Nectar (641; also part of Dior’s permanent collection) are nudes and should go well with dark smokey eyes this fall.

I think the two colors look almost like twins in their tubes, but they come into their own once they’re worn on the lips.

Sweet Praline, the warmer of the two sisters, applies as a light peachy pink with silver micro-glitter, and I’m glad she doesn’t look milky on my lips like a lot of other nude glosses are wont to do. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A

Fig Nectar applies as a cool, shimmery mauve with tiny flecks of silver glitter. There’s a touch of purplish-blue in this shade, and I’m guessing cool-toned hotties could wear it well. I can see it teamed up with eyeshadows in gray, berry or black. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A

Too bad the Creme de Glosses cost an arm and a leg, but their rich color, smooth texture (non-sticky) and blinding shine saves them from the scrap heap.

A girl can never have too many nude lip gloss options. 🙂

    Hi Makeup Minute,

    The Creme de Glosses in general are awesome. They have more pigmented colors… I really like Delicious Plum.

    EEK AS YOU KNOW I LOVE LIP GLOSS… hello credit card debt.

    my favorite nude gloss WAS the now discontinued diorkiss in hazelnut lychee, but now i use clinique bamboo pink. maybe i should get my paws on one of these…

    i had to leave cha cha at home for the first time today because i have to work 🙁 so worried that he’s scared and alone and mewing. when kittens mew i feel sad because it sounds so distressing.

    he spent a good part of last night driving me nuts by playing with his tinkle ball in the middle of the night, but then settled down to sleep next to my pillow. when he purrs he sounds like a giant motor! i miss him already and i’ve only been in the office three three hours!

      Hi Ines,

      Aww, that’s so sweet. Wait ’till you go on a long vacation… you’ll miss him like crazy!

      I think Cha Cha will be okay. Maybe leave the TV or a radio on for him before you go? Chances are he’s sleeping and resting up for another night of kitty partying!

    hi karen

    sorry i havent posted in a while i have just been MIA in my head these days

    these look fabulous i must try to find and look at them in person – i am a major fan of diors glosses they are just toooooo $$$$

    hope tabs is well – jazmine is still spilling out her litter box – got room for a single female kitty in your house lol ???

    • Karen says:

      Hi Yadi,

      I was getting worried about you! I figured you were just busy, though. 🙂

      These are totally pricy but I think are worth it. They feel so good on the lips!

      I think you may be destined to be a cat mom to diva-esque kittehs. Maybe she doesn’t like her litter? I bought Tabs some random litter on sale once and he was NOT having it. He’s all about Fresh Step, that brat!

  5. TUPRNUT says:

    I have 2 of these babies and they are divine! The formula is awesome… creamy, moisturizing, long-lasting and NOT sticky!!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Tuprnut,

      Yeah, I remember you telling me that you loved these. I think I want more of ’em… a small army of Creme de Glosses would make me very happy, LOL!

    I love Fig Nectar. It’s so popular in this area, my local Sephora is frequently sold out! I ended up buying online, and even giving one to my Mother-in-law as a gift. This shade happens to be great for all ages, in addition to its other positive attributes!

    Ooooh, how pretty! Man, every time I see posts like this I wish I were more of a gloss person! I keep having this sneaking suspicion that I just haven’t found the right gloss yet lol. I probably just have to invest in one and see – can’t really try on lipglosses in-store.

    i’m getting off work in 40 minutes – hopefully cha cha will not have peed everywhere or destroyed the couch.

    i’ll get home and give him a good playing around with, so that he doesn’t guilt me into giving him too much tasty wet food (his favorite so far is chicken and liver). the little brat has me all wrapped around his paw already.

    They look super pretty but I don’t think it’ll show up on my lips that well. I shall seek alternatives! 😀

    I looove all the bright Dior glosses. They are favorites! For nudes, though, I tend to go for NARS. But I haven’t tried these two yet…

    Hi Karen!

    I definitely sampled a fair number of shades! Wish I could remember the colors I sampled, but it was a whirlwind shopping trip (and also quite a while ago)! I just remember loving Fig Nectar for its versatility and it’s slightly-deeper-than-nude shade.

    Hey Karen! Nothing to do with this post, but just thought I’d let you know about Laura Mercier’s F&F (http://www.lauramercier.com/grabbags.php) if you hadn’t already.

    And yea, I think I just have to find the perfect one!

    phew. no cha cha the destroyer. the sweetie was sleeping on the couch (god knows how he got up there on those tiny little legs).

    he’s starting to do his nighttime crazy things, including trying to bat at anything that moves. he chased his tinkle ball until it got stuck, and now he’s looking at me all cute to tell me to go get it for him.

    he looked at me like i was stupid when i saw that he used his litter box on his own and clapped and gave him treats!

    i tried to clip his nails but he squirmed away. the vet says i have to be firm, but it’s hard because he squeals and runs away!
