Addiction Lipstick 013 Desert Rose

I really wanted to try an Addiction lipstick but the last time around while I was in Japan I think I was so overwhelmed by the other Addiction products that I could not decide which colour to get. I was probably afraid I would cart the whole store back home to Singapore with me.

So now that I was back in Singapore and I have ample time to do my research and choose I decided to get a easy o wear shade in Desert Rose. I am so lucky to have enablers who are willingly to feed my addiction for Addiction. 

There are two finishes for the Addiction Lipstick range, P for pearl finish and S for sheer finish. Desert Rose is a sheer finish. 

Addiction also has another line of lipstick called Lipstick Pure that features vivid colour. There are 8 shades.

That being said, I don't find the shade range incredibly exciting for me. There are altogether 13 shades available, however, I don't see any colours that is getting me hot and bothered if you know what I mean. Maybe Elvissa Dream or Super Woman.

The packaging is a no nonsense sleek black casing that clicks shut. In line with the entire make up range. 

Desert Rose is a sheer medium warm rose shade that enlivens my face subtly. It is fast becoming my number choice lipstick to wear for work because it is work appropriate and matches well with my entire look. It is very natural looking and very wearable. Slap on and go kind of lipstick. It is emollient and moisturising with the right amount of slip. It is not particularly long lasting but it wears well and reapplies beautifully each time.

  1. Hey Jacqueline, Desert Rose is such a pretty office-appropriate shade indeed! It doesn't look like much in the swatch, but I really really like it on you :)

    1. Thanks Sunny! I bet if you went to Japan you would go crazy over the amount of Japanese makeup available.
