Here I am to show you my current crush in terms of lip products. Last month Dior launched a new product, Dior Addict Fluid Stick, that delivers the boldness in terms of color and the long wear of a lipstick combined with the shine of a gloss.
My picks are: 754 Pandore, a classic and gorgeous red and 389 Kiss Me, a subtle nude pink.
Dior Addict Fluid Stick enables a flawless application in a single sweep: the high-impact colour and long wear of a classic lipstick, combined with the shine of a gloss, all in a thin film that delivers sensational comfort.
Colour and shine come together as one for maximum impact with intense, long-wearing lip stain pigments directly encapsulated in spheres of gloss. Dior Addict Fluid Stick does not contain wax, but water for maximum lightness, an immediate fresh effect and addictive comfort. Once the texture is applied on the lips, water evaporates, leaving sparkling color and moisturized lips.
A pure object of desire : the illusion is maintained until the case is opened and an applicator emerges that is steeped in colour and as precise and easy to use as a lipstick.
754 Pandore is a pure, radiant, and flamboyant red. In one word, explosive! Pandore is very pigmented and has an amazingly long staying power, i.e. about 6 hours and even after that you still have a hint of color left. It's also very glossy. It glides effortlessly on the lips and is very easy to apply. Another interesting point is that it's totally weightless and non-sticky and you don't feel you're actually wearing something on the lips.You also have to know that it's not transfer free. If you want to overcome this, you can apply some transluscent powder on top but this will give you a matte finish. I actually love wearing it both ways.
389 Kiss Me is a pretty nude pink. It adds a gorgeous, natural color to the lips. It's less pigmented than Pandore but it's still quite pigmented, much more than a gloss for example. There is some settling into natural lip lines but it kind of self-levels quickly so it's not an issue. Kiss Me is not as long-lasting as Pandore, you have to reapply it more often. That being said, it's a gorgeous every day color and I love wearing it!
I'm in love with these new Dior Addict Fluid Sticks. I was first attracted by the amazing packaging. It reflects the product, a lipstick-gloss hybrid, so well. Upon application, I was not disppointed. It's so light wear you don't feel you're actually wearing something. The texture is also quite rich and moisturizing. It doesn't dry your lips and this is a huge plus for me. I also love the extremely good pigmentation of Pandore. The color is so bright but very wearable. I would say Pandore is a must-have! I loved it so much that I decided to get a second shade, Kiss Me, to see how the lighter shades perform. I also love it but I have to say I have a slight preference for Pandore because it's so unique!
