I'll start off by talking about the packaging, which is of course, absolutely gorgeous. I am a sucker for beautiful packaging, especially when it comes to lipstick. I want to start a collection, right now I only have this one and one YSL lipstick, my next will probably be a Tom Ford or Guerlain.
Now, on to the color and formulation. The color is a nice nude pink. For my lip color and skin tone it is the perfect 'my lips but better' color. The Addict Extreme lipsticks claim to be lip color that lasts, but with a more balm-like shine than a traditional lipstick. After a few days of wearing this I can say they do last on my lips longer than most lipsticks, nothing like a stain, but a few hours of perfect looking wear. It feels very moisturizing and luxurious as well. It is on the more expensive side for a lipstick at $31, but it is worth every penny to me, and I will definitely be picking up more Dior lipsticks in the future.
