The latest from Dior Beauty is the new Dior Addict Stellar Gloss ($30 each) + Stellar Halo Shine Lipsticks ($38 each). I hauled several colors in the new formulas and have swatches for you today! Most of the colors are available at all retailers like Nordstrom, Sephora etc. There are a few shades I was only able to find on Dior.com. Color options may vary by country as well.
Dior Addict Stellar Gloss
I bought eight of the Dior Addict Stellar Lip Glosses sight unseen. I’ve been buying the lip glosses from the line for as long as I can remember and by this point I’ve lost count of how many times they’ve reformulated them. This variation comes with a large sponge tip applicator. They also have a sweet vanilla scent this round which I don’t remember them having. The Dior Addict Stellar Gloss has a high shine finish with a balm-like feel. They are smooth and non-sticky but semi-thick because of the balmy feel. Lasting power is better than average. They stay put on the lips for several hours but aren’t going to be super long lasting.
Finishes range from creams, shimmers to high shimmers to a few sparkles. I’d say pigment varies by color as well. The deeper brighter shades have better color payoff. A lot of the nudes I got look similar in the tubes. You can see the variation once you swatch them on the hand. However on my pigmented lips many of them look the same.
Colors I hauled:
- Diorsolight is a pale milky beige pink cream
- D-Way is a milky beige with tiny silver and beige shimmers
- J’Adior is a perfect beige peach nude cream
- Mirrored is a shimmery reflective nude
- D-Light is a smooth shimmer beige with pinkish/silver sheen
- Diorama is a smooth soft muted plum with silver shimmers
- Stellar is a clear base loaded with lilac glitter (still applies smooth and there’s no texture even with the sparkles)
- Everdior is a gorgeous shimmery coral with gold shimmers
Dior Stellar Halo Shine Lipsticks
I was really excited about the new Dior Stellar Halo Shine Lipsticks because of the shimmery stars in the center of each color! Some have a gold star, others have a pink star. The lipsticks themselves are more of a satin with a soft sheen but the star center adds either gold micro glitters or pink micro sparkles. On the lips they are shimmery but aren’t too frosty.
Pigment-wise the deeper colors have better color payoff. These have a lot of slip to them because of the shine. To me they have a similar feel to the YSL Rouge Volupte Shines or Chanel Rouge Coco Flash. The Dior Stellar Halo Shine Lipsticks also have a sweet vanilla cake kind of scent. Since there is a lot of shine and gloss to them, they almost feel like they’ll slide off the lips without a liner or primer. To me they feel more like tinted balms rather than a lipstick, but it’s pleasant and lovely to wear.
Colors I hauled below. As always please note because I have a natural pigmented lip base, the nudes will most likely look different on you as my natural lip shows through:
- Cherish Star is a nude pink in the tube, but on my lips it’s almost a pale sheer pink
- Treasure Star looks like a taupe shimmer in the tube, on my lips it’s a nude pink shimmer
- Peace Star is a coral peach shimmer, on my lips and complexion it pulls more pinkish
- Pink Star is a lovely almost soft raspberry pink shimmer

Overall I’m happy with most of my picks. Had I seen them all in person I probably would have picked different colors and skipped most of the nudes I bought – mainly because they look so similar on me. Since the formula pulls sheer-ish I think the brights and bolds would be a lot easier to wear than I anticipated. At this point I don’t think I’ll be hauling any more colors since summer launches are right around the corner and I’m interested in seeing other new things. I do like the look of some of the brighter glosses though which I think would be nice for summer.
Have you tried any of these yet? What did you think?
