Name: Addict Extreme in Avenue
From Sephora’s website:
This long-wearing lipstick goes the distance, resisting fading while adding bold color and beautiful shine. The expert formula combines waxes, radiant oils, and hyaluronic microspheres for ultimate comfort and a lip-plumping effect.
What I liked:
– good colour payoff with a shiny finish
– creamy, comfortable, fairly moisturizing texture that glides smoothly on the lips
– brightens up the face
– good staying power
– elegant packaging
What I didn’t like:
– the price
A few months ago, my friend Janessa alerted me to a sale at Sephora. She said she was gonna make an order and asked me if I wanted anything (how nice is that?!). Of course, I jumped at the chance and, after browsing the website for an hour or so (no kidding), I settled on Dior Addict Extreme in Avenue.
Avenue is a beautiful rosy pink with a subtle wet shiny finish. Its creamy, lightweight texture glides smoothly, and feels comfortable, on the lips, coating them with an elegant and rich colour. The pink is quite bright, but in a natural, sophisticated way. You can build it up if you want it to be really vibrant, but even then it never looks too flashy or over-the-top.
You can wear it both during the day at the office, or for a night out with a special someone. It just beautifully brightens up your face, making you look fresh and polished. And although Avenue leans more towards the warm end of the spectrum, it could easily be worn by cool-toned women too. It’s very versatile.
But the most amazing thing about it is how long it lasts. The glossy, shiny finish disappears within two hours, taking some of the colour with it too. But then, you are left with a pretty stain, still fresh and flawless, that lasts up to 4 more hours! Addict never settles into fine lines nor migrates. It just stays put for 6 hours or so (unless you don’t eat or kiss, of course). How wonderful , is that?
Dior Addict Extreme in Avenue is an elegant and glossy rosy pink shade that brightens up the face. Its creamy, lightweight texture glides smoothly on the lips and doesn’t dry them out. Staying power is great. After two hours, it leaves behind a stain that lasts for 4 more! However, it is expensive.
