Dior Addict Lacquer Sticks Spring/Summer 2017………….. 924; 877; 684; 550 Swatches.
I’m so excited to share the new Dior Lacquer Lipstick swatches for Spring/Summer 2017 with you. I have been waiting for these for what seems like forever.
I do love Dior Addict lipsticks and started using them a few years ago when Kate Moss headed up the media campaign; in fact, i bought the very lipstick she wore in the tv advert. (Diorkiss) A beautiful pink . Since then, i have tried various formulas by Dior in the Addict range and loved them all. This new range is no exception, i just love all the shades and will have trouble picking which ones to buy.
The New Dior Addict.
The new range consists of 4 categories of lipstick. The formula is said to be a liquid shine that works with your own lip. Weightless and non-sticky and wears for 6 hours. The complete shade range below is for the UK/Europe Market.
Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, creates the 4 colour trends of the season inspired by the most emblematic L.A. spots and bathed in the light of the West Coast:
PASTEL Whites infused with pink, lavender, coral and peach pigments evoke a Californian postcard from the fifties.
NEON A pop spectrum that draws its energy from the heart of the City of Angels.
CLASSIC Red Carpet reds and pinks with Hollywood glamour.
WILD Neo-nudes and browns that flirt with grunge.
A base almost twice as sheer as a classic lipstick** for colour with unprecedented shine. A palette of 18 colour creations, ranging from the highly experimental to the most timeless, all with surprising intensity and vibrancy, including 4 emblematic it-shades: Turn Me Dior, Diabolo, Sauvage, Tease.
550 Tease. (Pastel)
A gorgeous beige/pink which will be great for a nude day look. Again, i own nothing like this shade in my collection. It is a nice wearable day wear shade that is going to suit most with paler skin tones. Great with a smokey eye.
It has a candy scent to this one and is quite soft and easy to apply out of the pot. I do like this but it isn’t unique enough for me to buy it. Lovely and shiny though.
684 Diabolo. (Neon).
In the neon range, this one is a fuchsia based pink; very shocking pink, infact. I have a few shades of lipstick similar to this, (Chanel Rouge Allure, Exalte; DiorAddict, Be Dior; NARS Pure Matte Lipstick, Carthage).
I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with Fuchsia shades because i think it looks lovely when i first apply it with a nude eye. Later on in the day, i feel it looks a bit messy and tarty on my lips. I do love the shock/neon factor of Diabolo though.
I wore this all day in work and it wore very well and didn’t go patchy in places at all. Which happens a lot with this type of shade on my lips after a few hours wear.
Worn by Jennifer Lawrence in the media campaigns, this is a classic blue-based red shade or is it? Very cool toned and certainly classic.
When i applied it, i thought it wore as a pink/red on my lip and yet; when i photographed it, it was a blue/red in the photo’s. I still think it wears pink/red on me and it’s a gorgeous very wearable shade. I think i will buy this shade in full size. It also is very glossy on the lip and comfortable.
This reminds me of the Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss lipstick, 18 Séduction. A beautiful wearable pink/red.
24 Sauvage. (Wild)
A deep chocolate shade and nothing at all like any other shade i own in my whole collection of 65+ lipsticks. (I know, shameful!)
This shade would be fantastic on very pale, porcelain or darker skin tones. It’s too dark on me!
I’m smitten with the Dior Addict lipsticks and have never had a single complaint about any shade or the consistency of the product. The packaging of Dior lipsticks is beautiful and; who can’t resist pulling one of them out of your purse to show off!
The consistency of the lacquer sticks is very soft and glides easily over the lip. I noticed the lipstick clung to some of the dry bits on my lip, so exfoliate lip first before applying. It wasn’t a big deal anyway. The camera picked it up; however, the naked eye doesn’t.
I wore the neon pink 684 Diabolo for work to see if 6 hours wear is really true. Well, yes actually it is.
The lips become mirror-like and very glossy (see swatches above right and above).
It does eventually set and matte down slightly after 3 hours wear so, you can either, re-apply lipstick to get the gloss back or; you could add a touch of lip balm and this will bring the moisture and gloss back to.
This is one seriously long lasting lipstick; however, the gloss will only last a couple of hours. Minor touch ups means, a lipstick which is going to last far longer in the tube than the balm-like ones with a great amount of slip, which you constantly need to re-apply.
I think this is the best Addict lipstick reinvention yet and the black packaging with neon pink strip is a very nice touch. Good luck trying to walk past the counter without wanting at least one.
Take care and i will see you all soon 😉
