Dior has added a few new shades to their Dior Addict Lip Maximizer ($34; dior.com) line. The new colors are a mix of cremes and holographic shimmers and deliver the same glossy, plumping effect as the original Lip Maximizer. There’s a slight minty tingle to the formula and they are very moisturizing and super glossy. The newer colors are a lot more fun and perfect if you like sheer glosses with a subtle pop of color. While I cannot comment on the longevity of these since I only tried them on for a short while, they felt like any other plumping gloss and would make for a great everyday gloss that can also be layered.

Chantecaille’s Lip Chic Lip Color in Tea Rose ($38; shop.nordstrom.com) has become one of my most favorite, go to lipsticks that I’ve been wearing a lot of recently. Its a gorgeous sheer rose that would look great on any skin tone. Its a beautiful formula too and feels super moisturizing. The color is perfection and the packaging, like everything else from Chantecaille, is minimalistic chic and very classy. If you like sheer lipsticks with a touch of gloss and want something super easy to swipe and go, this is perfect. I would definitely try a color or two more since the color range is just fabulous.

The Algenist GENIUS Liquid Lip Collagen ($35; sephora.com) is a lightweight vegan collagen treatment that helps visibly fill out lines in and around the lip area. It comes with a convenient applicator and is great, almost undetectable under lip balms and other lip colors too. There’s no waxy feel or heaviness and feels more like a serum that goes under lip care products than a moisturizer by itself. Overtime it does help my lips retain moisture, but also needs to be reapplied and also to be done consistently. Overall, if you want something in addition to your lip balm that helps with adding an extra ayer of moisture, this is worth looking into.
