This is basically very expensive clear/shimmery lipgloss. It smells nice and is not overly sticky (less sticky than Lancome Juicy Tubes). I don't see this on the Dior or Sephora websites anymore. I would never repurchase this because its way too expensive for a clear lipgloss.

Pretty pouty glossy lips is what you get with this. Mango Soda is a sheer coral-pink color with loads of warm hued sparkles. I normally don't dig scented glosses but this has a very natural fruity scent which I like. I do find that it makes my lips appear fuller. I love the packaging as well. It's thin and tappers at the end making it fit anywhere. As for the texture, this is a very sticky goopy gloss and the staying power is average for a gloss-you'll have to reapply after eating/drinking.

I bought this in Mango Soda (451). I love the color; it provides warmth to my face and makes my lips look pretty. The glossy-ness doesn't last super long but lasts longer than the average gloss, and when the shine fades the pigment slightly remains on my lips. I'll probably buy this again.
...and regarding the scent, I hate perfumey scents. While I dont mind my skin care products to have an earthy or natural (citrus, tea tree, lavender, etc) scent, I prefer my makeup to be scentless. Nevertheless, the scent of this Mango Soda doesn't bother me. In fact, overtime, (probably) because I associate positive feelings toward this beautiful lip gloss, I associate the scent to positive feelings as well. : )

Mango Soda is a lovely peachy apricot shade with subtle gold shimmer particles - it might look quite orange in the tube but applies a lovely sheer coral. Very pretty!
The texture is good for a gloss, thick enough to stay on longer than 30 seconds but not sticky or goopy in any way (unless you over apply I guess?) and the packaging is elegant too, despite the fact it is less than half the size of the old tubes (which I love insanely BTW). It has a fruity mango scent, which I absolutely adore, though I could understand why some might find it overpowering. This is typical of DiorKiss glosses though, so if you're OK with the scents of Juicy Tubes, this should be no different.
It has decent staying power, three or four hours unless you're eating or drinking and wears fairly evenly. I always squeeze a bit out and apply with my finger but the tip appears very hygenic and easy to keep clean if you apply directly from the tube. Just squeeze gently until product appears and smooth over lips - looks lovely over a shimmery coral pink lipstick!
I love this stuff!

My first Dior purchase. Very very happy with this gloss. I usually use MAC lipglasses but they can be so sticky and goopy. This just glides right on and leaves a beautiful shimmery shine. The scent and taste are and extra added bonus. Left one lippy off for price. will repurchase.

In my effort to try every single product at Sephora, I tried this on and I had to buy it. It's a sheer coral pink with a tiny bit of glitter (which I usually hate), and it has a delicious fruity fragrance. It makes me feel like I'm on vacation. I can see why some might not like the packaging but I think it's great. I may actually prefer this to a wand, which over time gets goopy. The tube is very clean and hygenic to use. You squeeze the amount out that you need and apply it with the slant tip (or a brush if you are applying over lipstick). I find myself wanting to use this every day. I'm a convert; I like this better than pretty much any MAC gloss, and possibly Chanel Glossimers as well... and that is saying a lot.

Ridiculous packaging - what are we children? Do we need absurd little girl packaging that looks good but doesn't work well - I can hardly get the lid off easily without the whole top coming off and spilling it. The tube is 'sleek' but so what, it's the product that counts, you get so little product 1/4 of an ounce for £15! But we're all so silly - they seem to think, all we care about is that the packaging looks 'PRETTY!" I could clout them. However the product inside does have a lovely shimmer. It will make your lips look more voluptuous, tastes like a sweetie, yes they think women have arrested development obviously, but the gloss is nice.
I have highly pigmented rosy lips. This gloss does not really add any colour to them or lighten them, which I wanted as in the tube it looks paler than my lips, it can't add or change the colour, it's too damn sheer, like juicy tubes but with shimmer. Disappointing for me, its more like a lip shimmery highlighter with gloss.
If you have colourless lips and don't mind the absurd price for packaging which makes it hard to get at and that the manufacturers are assuming we're all dim children, then this will work for you, if you've rosy lips look elsewhere.

Classy packaging, sheer shimmery color, and staying power (4 - 5 hours on me, but didn't last through dinner) make this one a keeper IMO. The shimmers aren't tacky at all, but gorgeous, and it kept my lips well moisturized. My only gripe is that there's so little product (.27 oz) for the price you pay...other than that, though, I think I'm in love. Definitely try it!

This gloss looks like a coral pink in the tube but when on it is sheer and shimmery. It gives just a hint of peach color to the lips. It smells really good just like mangoes. It is thick and sticky so it stays on for a long time. Love the packaging, but be careful not to squeeze too much out at once you only need the tiniest bit.

This smells like Lipsmackers for grownups. In the tube, Mango Soda looks like Twinkle Glossimer, but as the review below by Soraya69 said, it goes on clear (at least on my decently pigmented lips) with shimmer, and a Lipsmackers-esque mango-y taste. Evidently these have a plumping action, but I don't see a ridiculous plump-nor do I feel a Lip Venom-type sting- however this gloss does give me a decent pout. I am a big fan of the new formulation and the new packaging. I don't even know how to describe the applicator, it is like a plastic tube with a small lip shape at the top and a large hole in the middle.
This is wearable and easy to apply and helps me to feed my lip balm addiction because it is clear enough to appliy constantly. I don't find Mango Soda sticky at all.
I also have Iced Latte which smells like a Starbucks dumpster (but in a good way) and is equally as sheer.
I will continue to buy these, if only for the age-appropriate Lip Smackers factor. If you are looking for a color similar to what this looks like in the tube, go for Chanel Twinkle glossimer.

I normally love dior glosses (and diorsculpt foundation, and airflash foundation, and if I must wear a waterproof mascara- the only one I actually think looks and wears nicely is blackout waterproof).
The reason I hate this product so much is because it has a bad smell to it. Diorkiss smells bad, almost reminiscent of cat pee or cat spray. The finish and feel of the gloss is actually really pretty, but I can't get past that gross smell. What's up with that? Sorry dior- you're still one of my most favorite brands though!

I absolutely looooove this gloss. I have gotten so many compliments wearing it. It's a peach that goes on with a hint of color but a lot of shimmer. It lasts a long time. I wish it came with a brush applicator. The cap gets stuck all of the time. I use my little finger to apply it on my lips....

This was my first foray into Dior, and it makes a great first impression! This gloss is a true peach, with lots of shimmer. The shimmer scared me at first, but after wearing it I think it's still appropriate for most age groups. It feels great on and has a nice smell. The staying power is so good that I put it on before I went to bed, and it was still showing up in the morning. I was looking for a more neutral color that still has some pop to it, and this was a great find! Not too light or dark, not too yellow or too pink. I dislike the packaging, however, and it's of course kind of expensive. The applicator does not come attached to the tube for some reason, and it took me a few minutes to figure out that it was stuck in the cap.

I never had the old version of the Diorkiss glosses, so I cannot compare. I just saw these new revamped ones, and I had to have one. I chose Mango Soda, as I liked the color in the tube the most for the summer, but I'm sure all of them are nice.
First of all, I love the smell - it really reminds me of a mango. It's not overbearing, just...there, and it seems to linger for a while.
I thought the color would show up more on my lips, but it doesn't, it is almost clear. Key word: almost. It still leaves a hint of color that makes this gloss perfectly wearable on its own. Plus, it has gold micro glitters that actually show, without being obvious (or feeling gritty, you don't feel them at all). The overall effect is gorgeous, lips look juicy, very glossy and -dare I say - a bit plumper?
It has a fairly good lasting power too, even if it's not that sticky (compared to MAC Lipglass for example).
I tried it layered on top of MAC Blankety, the one l/s that I absolutely cannot wear, because it makes me look like I have no lips, and - joyous moment - it made the l/s wearable!!!! Together they give me the perfect nude lip, that I haven't been able to achieve thus far. I cannot wait to try it on top of other l/s I own, it seems to make all of them look gorgeous.
I actually like the packaging. The slanted applicator can leave streaks, but they are easily fixable.
I think I will buy one of the glitter-less shades as well, for autumn/winter.
