One of my favorite things about this year's summer are the fun glosses! After a drab winter, all I want to do is wear super outrageous colors. Since my wardrobe is typical New Yorker black, white, and gray (I need to change this), I get my dose of brights on my fingers and lips.
The Dior Addict Ultra Gloss formula is one of the pleasant ones. It's incredibly lightweight, non-sticky, and fragrance free. That said, I rarely buy them because a couple of my old ones leaked, and what makes the formula amazing is probably what hinders it as well, as the glosses tend to disappear rather quickly from the lips. If Orange Pareo was any less of a shade, I wouldn't have purchased it.

It's funny, I always thought wearing orange would accentuate my yellowness, but seeing these photos, I guess it really doesn't. In fact, I think it rather complements my skintone. I guess it's a good reminder to always try something before writing it off, because we never know when the unexpected might work!
Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Orange Pareo retails for $28 and should be available at counters nationwide soon, if not already.
Update: A reader asked how Orange Pareo compares to Le Métier de Beauté Orange Juiced. I think the latter subtly alters my lip color, whereas Orange Pareo is more pigmented and noticeable at first glance. Orange Juiced contain more sparkles.
Edit: A reader pointed out that Nordstrom called the gloss Orange Pareo instead of Orange Sari as earlier press releases indicated. Since Sephora also has it as Orange Pareo, I suppose the company decided to rename it as such, I have edited the post to reflect this.
