Today I'm going to share with you one of the lovely Dior Addict lip glosses. Dior Addict #576 Bed of Roses is a "petal pink shimmer." I think it's just lovely.
Bed of Roses is one of the permanent shades in the Dior Addict Lip Gloss line, which retails for $29.50 at Dior counters. This color was launched in Spring 2013 when the entire line was re-done.
I find Bed of Roses to be the perfect counterpoint to another Dior Addict Lip Gloss, Princess. Princess is a sparkling, cool-toned pink. Bed of Roses is a warm, shimmering pink with less obvious glitter on the lips. I'll be honest- I'm just getting into gloss these past few years, so I'm not an expert in mixing and matching. Unless there's a corresponding lipstick being promoted, I tend to just wear glosses alone.
Bed of Roses is a perfect spring pink- and is a perfect matching lip. I find it perfectly appropriate for most circumstances, including work. Although I work in a conservative office, this isn't a glitter bomb by any stretch of the imagination. Bed of Roses gives a beautiful pink hue to your lips without being overdone.
I think the Dior Addict Gloss wand is one of my favorite parts of the product. You can control the amount and application so much better than the foam-type wands.
Since my lips are so pigmented, I prefer to show you gloss swatches on my hand as to feature the color.

Looking at these photos, I find either the inside with flash or outside without flash truest to real life. As you can tell, this is a pigmented lip gloss, so it does work on lips with their own pigmentation. I get 2-3 hours of wear- or until I eat/drink with this.
Bottom Line: I love this gloss and just hadn't featured it on the blog. Consider this part of my effort to show more permanent-line products since there tends to be fewer reviews out there.
