I went to the Dior counter last week to get a Dior Rouge Lipstick because my fellow lipstick bandit Larie@Eye Heart It says they are her all time favourite lipstick formula ever. And when a lipstick bandit makes that kind of claim, you know she means it! I’ve never tried a Dior Rouge Lipstick, can you believe it?
And I still haven’t tried one, because they didn’t have the colour I wanted. 🙁
But then I spotted the Dior Addict Extremes. And saw the shade Riviera.
Looked like it was just another orange lipstick in the Sea of Tangerine 2012.
My friend who works at the Dior counter convinced me to try it on. It was love at first try!
Dior Extreme Addict in Riviera is a gorgeous sheer coral shade that is so easy to wear with teal eyeshadow. Teals are probably my next favourite shade after taupes. I don’t wear teals as often as I used to, but lately I’ve been craving them again. And after seeing my other fellow lipstick bandit Paris B@My Women Stuff wearing Riviera with teal, I knew this was going to be perfect. Do check out her post on the Dior Addict Extremes-her pictures are really cute! Although maybe don’t, because after seeing them I also now want the shade Incognito! 😛 Frankly, she makes every shade look amazing!
Riviera is a great sheer lipstick and I get over an hour wear before it fades to a light stain on my lips. Since it’s sheer, it’s really easy to reapply and is nicely moisturizing as well.
I think Dior Addict Extreme in Riviera is my favourite lip purchase this year, and my favourite sheer lipstick formula too. And it’s my last coral lipstick purchase -I swear! 🙂 No more corals allowed!
What’s your favourite sheer lipstick? Or do you not like sheer lipstick formulas?
