Dior Addict Lip Polish in 002 Fresh Expert Review, Photos, Swatches

The Dior Addict Lip Polish smoothing lacquer is the only Dior lip product I have not tested. I figured I should remedy the situation and purchased Fresh Expert, despite reservations from reviews claiming the gloss was relatively sheer. I kept my fingers crossed but alas, on my medium-pigmented mauve lips, the beautiful and neutral milky pink base of Fresh Expert is virtually undetectable.

The gloss does have other redeeming qualities, though! It may be nearly clear but it imparts some of the most subtle and sophisticated shimmer I've ever encountered. That's ideal for those who seek a 'quiet' glossy lip. My favorite element, however, is the clever rolling doe-foot applicator that provides very even coverage. Fresh Expert tingles slightly upon application, plumping the lips, and the fine shimmer particles contribute further to the healthy appearance of my pout. Lastly, Fresh Expert is more long-lasting than other Dior lip glosses, 4 hours, as opposed to the 2 hours I get from the Addict Ultra glosses.

Do I find that it is worth $30? Not really. I'd rather pay $6 more for a Le Metier de Beaute lip creme 

Bottom line: Nice to have, not a must-have.


  1. I agree about the LMdB ... I got this Dior gloss free in my diva pack ,so the price was right haha
