Dior Addict Fluid Stick in 373 Rieuse (Fabulous Wear High Impact Glossy Colour Lip Hybrid) is the only Dior product left in my stash. I’ve already re-sold or given away my other Dior Addict lipsticks and used up my last Diorshow mascara. I guess there’s a reason why I couldn’t let this one go.
I love coral lipsticks. Period. I don’t know, but whenever I have a coral lipstick on, I feel as happy as a summer’s day. Dior Rieuse is not an exception. It brightens up my face, and uplifts my spirits, even when I’m stressed with work.
What Dior says:
Flawless application in a single sweep: the high-impact colour and long wear of a lipstick, combined with the shine of a gloss, all in a thin veil that delivers a weightless feel. Colour and shine come together for maximum impact with intense lip stain pigments directly encapsulated in spheres of gloss for long-wearing results.
Dior Addict Fluid Stick is formulated with water, not wax, for a light feeling on the lips, an immediate fresh effect and addictive sensation… A pure object of desire : the illusion of a lipstick is maintained until the case is opened and an applicator emerges that is steeped in colour and as precise and easy to apply as a lipstick.
I was able to capture the true color of Rieuse swatched on my arm. But on my lip swatch, it was hard to capture because I only used my Samsung Note 3‘s front camera. The shade is a very pretty pinkish coral that will work on almost everyone. Its finish is glossy and shiny like a lipgloss, but it’s very pigmented like a lipstick. It also lasts longer than a lipgloss normally would, but it tends to wear off much easier when eating or drinking as compared to a lipstick.
More swatches and photos:
The packaging of Dior Fluid Sticks is really cute. It’s classy, yet cool enough for college girls to carry around campus. It’s bigger than your regular lipstick but smaller than most glosses. The comparison photo above shows (from L-R) Chanel Rouge Coco, Chanel Glossimer, Dior Addict Fluid Stick, Chanel Extrait De Gloss and Chanel Rouge Allure.
I love this lipstick/lipgloss cross-breed. Do you?
