Dior Addict 564 Model

Mr. Postman brought me a padded envelope yesterday from the sweet Marie - and inside I found the gorgeous Dior Addict in 564 "Model". I already wrote about wanting this lipstick, and how I failed at finding it while in London. In the US it's a Sephora Exclusive, and since Sephora has decided to block freight forwarders (a mystery to me) I was unable to get my hands on it without asking someone kindly for a custom purchase. A few days ago I got a message from Marie on Twitter asking me if I had got it, and when I told her no she offered to purchase it for me at the store where she works! I didn't know what so say, it made me really happy - one has to be somewhat of an addict enthusiast to fully understand the joy of finally being able to get your hands on something you've been wanting for a while, and appreciating the fellowship of another makeup enthusiast reaching out to help. Thanks a million, Marie!

564 "Model" is an absolutely gorgeous color described as a sheer warm pink infused with subtle pink shimmer according to The Beauty Look Book, but to me it seems to have a tinge of golden sheen to it? Click the provided link for swatches and comparisons. It's a beautiful color! And I can't wait to see how it'll look when I get my summer tan on.

Dior Addict Lipstick: 564 Model

I'm blessed to be surrounded by sweet people, going out of their way to do something nice for a complete stranger. Thank you so much all of you who help me get my hands on items I want, or who help me in other ways - maybe just by putting a smile on my face, making my day perfect. I want you all to know that I am very grateful, and I hope I'm able to give something back to each and everyone of you. Do let me know if there's something I can do for you, and I'll do my best to help!
