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. 🙂 I saw it in a few Japanese Instagram accounts either late last year or early this year. There have been a few releases since then that didn’t include this. I already gave up waiting. So seeing this in the summer collection was really a surprise. 🙂

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.)

The Pool Blue I have used on its own, but I have another one (in 001 Pink) that I now try to use up. I use it as part of my morning (before lip color) and evening routines.


The main reason I got Pool Blue is because it’s blue. 😛 I’m a sucker for unconventional shades.

But this is not a pigmented lip gloss; it’s just pale blue on my lips. It has the same (formula) as the permanent Lip Maximizers:

  • Not drying, not sticky, and doesn’t get goopy when I apply a lot
  • Lightweight
  • Feels minty (probably that “fresh sensation” as they call it), which I believe gives the plumping feel

I like the Lip Maximizer as a lip gloss. Frankly, it will not give truly plump lips but just the look of it. Though I noticed that continued use, twice a day, has lessened the pigmentation of my lips and my lip contour is “redefined.” My lips look better than I remember, for sure. Healthier-looking I guess?

When I go on trips, I bring the Lip Maximizer because I can use it in my skincare routine as well as a lip gloss. 🙂

Anything Dior is pricey, so the Dior Addict Lip Maximizer is no exception. This is Php1850. I’m not particularly crazy over the Lip Maximizer, so it’s not what I would recommend especially as a main lip care/treatment. I suggest trying it first to see if it’s for you.


Dior Addict Lip Maximizer in 011 Pool Blue is part of the Dior summer 2018 collection, so it’s limited edition. If you want this particular shade, there’s no harm in asking if the stores still have it.

You can find Dior in SM Makati, Shangri-La Rustan’s, and SM Aura.
