DIOR ♥ Dior Addict #981 Ensorcelante Gloss Review + Swatches

I went through a phase of dark lippies obsess last winter and until now the thoughts of a dark lips look still lingers around from time to time. I have always been a pink, girly girl kind of person, I am not sure what is with the sudden personality change? Haha ~ 

Today I will be reviewing this beautiful, vampy shade of Dior Addict #981 Ensorcelante Gloss

Dior Addict #981 Ensorcelante Gloss

#981 Ensorcelante is another Dior Addict Gloss that I purchased from fellow blogger Beauty Reductionista, I had previously reviewed the same gloss in shade #772 Exquise.

Both #981 Ensorcelante and #772 Exquise are the first and only Dior Addict Gloss I own, I absolutely adore these glosses inside out, from its elegant packaging to its smooth and comfortable formula. Don't you just wish Dior beauty products' pricing aren't like, sky high?!

Dior Addict #981 Ensorcelante Gloss is part of the Dior Mystic Metallics Fall 2013 Collection, it is a Limited Edition gloss that is described as a plum shade. The color is a deep plum with a brown and red undertone and pink shimmers, it is quite vampy, yet wearable.

Dior Addict #981 Ensorcelante Gloss

Dior Addict Gloss comes packaged in a glass-like' tube with silver detailing, the details such as the name of the gloss and where this product is made (Dior Addict Gloss is made in France) is printed on a transparent sticker and it is stuck on the bottom of the gloss. This lip gloss comes with one of those brush type applicator for an easy and even application, the packaging overall looks and feels very high quality and elegant.

#981 Ensorcelante has a thick texture, it offers a semi-opaque coverage with one swipe and of course you can layer it for a more intense darken plum look. Ensorcelante looks true-to-color on the lips as from the tube, except that the pink shimmers shown in the tube is not visible on the lips, well, not really unless if you look closely.

This is the perfect lip color for winter and autumn, not sure of its formula though as it is always very windy in New Zealand. It doesn't matter how good quality a lip gloss is, gloss and wind can never be friends. #981 Ensorcelante is also a pretty shade to wear on a night out in summer, some people just prefers to be vampy all year round and there's nothing wrong with that.

Dior Addict #981 Ensorcelante Gloss definitely worn better than #772 Exquise, the gloss worn well for approximately three hours on me, I have only worn Ensorcelante without eating, not sure how it would last if I have lunch or dinner while wearing it. After three hours it does leaves a bit of stain before it fully fades away.

Are you a Dior fan? Do you own any Dior Addict Gloss? What is your must-have shades from the range?


  1. Glad to see you're enjoying it! You wear it well. :D It's a beautiful colour but I am just not loving glosses very much right now - especially darker colours.

  2. Oh wow, not only is that a stunning shade, it looks amazing on you x

  3. I don't have any glosses from them, but I have a lipstick called Diablotine from them that I love! It's a perfect pinky red with a touch of coral color.

  8. I LOVE Dior Addict lipsticks, I have the same in light pink color, and it's perfect! And now I want this color too because it looks gorgeous!


  9. This looks amazing on you! I've never tried a Dior gloss but I'm tempted now! xx

  10. This is so lovely and glosses - perfect for nights out x

  11. OH DEAR GOD. This lipgloss is SUCH A BEAUT! I've own now I think a total of 5 dior addict glosses and they're the only lip product I've owned from them besides the solid lip color in travel kits I've tried. I absolutely love how the more opaque ones looks like a cream lipstick with a glassy gloss on top. My favorite ones are the ones with shimmer! I skipped out on a new lip gloss from them recently and put it back but now am just regretting it a bit! I totally am in the game for a new dior lipgloss right now, all of mine have been retired as of last year! The shade I want to buy from them is this pure hot pink fuchsia with loads of shimmer!
