So there was some tweeting recently about the Dior Addict lipstick worn by Kate Moss in a recent advertisement... #578 "Dior Kiss". I've been on a lipstick/gloss kick lately -- but in search of the perfect neutrals and peaches -- obviously completely neglecting the pink family.
I looked it up online and the Dior Addict line comes in the most beautiful range of pinks... from barely there to bubblegum to hot... so I went to Sephora this morning to check them out in person. For me, the perfect rosy pink came down to Dior Kiss #578 (described as "sheer dark pink") or Paris #762 (described as "hot pink shimmer"). Paris was a little sparklier and lighter it seemed. I came home with the slightly deeper hued Dior Kiss.
This lipstick absolutely feels like a lip balm on my lips. I love it. It is pigmented enough to show up like a regular lipstick, but just so moisturizing - with such a gorgeous sheen - that I don't feel like it needs a gloss over it. Perfect for Summer simplicity.

I tried to take some swatch pics on my arm, but they just didn't look right. Here I am wearing it (I think it looks a little brighter pink IRL than on my screen):
I'd love to hear of other good pinks. I'll try to post my fav neutrals & peaches soon.
