Review: Dior Addict Lip Maximizer in 011 Pool Blue

I’m so glad that the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer in 011 Pool Blue was released here with the Dior Cool Wave Summer 2018 collection. πŸ™‚ I saw the Lip Maximizer in a few Japanese Instagram accounts around late last year. There have been a few releases without this Lip Maximizer since seeing it, so I almost gave up on until the summer collection came out. πŸ˜€

Description and use

Dior claims the Lip Maximizer gives a plumping/volume effect and rehydrates and redefines the lips.

Dior’s must-have beauty accessory for luscious full lips.

Plumping effect: an incredible volume effect immediately when it is applied.

An unmatched fresh sensation. … Gives your lips a fresh sensation and unique sense of pleasure from the very first application.
Lips that look transformed in just 15 days. Your lips feel rehydrated and restructured. Your lip contour is redefined day after day for a mouth that looks plumped up and ultra-sexy.


This may be used under or over lipstick or as a treatment.

Secrets of Use

As a complement to your makeup: to pump up volume and maximize shine, apply under gloss or over your usual lipstick.

As an intensive treatment: use on its own for a 15-day treatment. Apply every morning before makeup or every evening.

Begin application at the center of the lips and sweep outward to the corners of the mouth. Wipe the applicator clean after each use.

(That “Secrets of Use” made me laugh a bit.)


I wanted Pool Blue is because it’s blue. πŸ˜› Although, this is just sheer; it’s like a clear lip gloss. On its own, it makes my lips paler.

Similar to the other Lip Maximizers:

  • it lessens the appearance of lip lines when I use it to prep;
  • it’s non-drying ;
  • it’s not tacky, so I don’t worry about my hair sticking when I have it down;
  • doesn’t get goopy when I put on so much; and
  • it has a minty taste/feel.

When I go on very short trips, I bring a Lip Maximizer (including Pool Blue) because I can use it in my skincare routine and a lip gloss. πŸ™‚

Overall, I prefer the Lip Maximizer more as a lip gloss than a treatment. It gives an appearance of fuller lips, but I did notice that with continued twice a day use, it lightened and redefined my lips.


The Lip Maximizer in 011 Pool Blue is one of the Dior summer 2018 collection and a limited edition. Priced at Php1850, I suggest trying the Lip Maximizer first to see if it’s for you. There are many shades available.

Dior is available in SM Makati, Podium, Shangri-La Rustan’s, and SM Aura.
