In the latest release of Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick and Vernis, there are 16 shades of lipsticks and 4 new nail polishes. The nail polishes are accompanied by a twin lipstick with the same name each. I really like the polishes as 3 out of 4 are in pink/red tone! Totally attention seeking
Interesting, isn’t it?
In the picture above, I have lipstick in Lucky #536 and nail polish in Lucky #659.
I like how mitchy-matchy the look from the product and in picture.
The polish looks pinkish with red tone in the bottle, but in real life it is actually more red than pink.
The swatch of lipstick on the left, and the polish on the right. The shades are pretty close when they are swatched on white, but they look quite different in skin tone!
Lo and behold! Look how gorgeous is the color!
It looks like a red with pink tint, and the formula is very smooth and creamy. All you need is one layer to achieve the opacity. I only did a single layer in the above swatch too.
I like how thick, stiff and short the brush is, it is very precise.
If you suffer from NACD (Nail Art Compulsory Disorder) like me, I just have to do something on the plain color. I just can’t bear to leave my nails without any art on top!
With a dotting tool, all you need is extra 5 mins for this. Don’t worry about the dots looking poky, the acrylic color will ‘shrink’ to a flat surface in no time or after you apply the top coat
The lipstick, on the other hand, appears to be more pinkish on my lips. Unlike the nail polish, the color is not as intense and you don’t have to worry about looking too outstanding if you are not used to wearing bright color.
The staying power is average and disappears in 2 hours on my lips. It is quite moisturizing that you don’t need a lip balm prior to using this. In fact, I think it applies even more smoothly than Revlon lip butter.
How do you like my mitchy-matchy lips and nails?
Do you love the colors? And if you do, watch out some good news next month to win yourself one of these lovely lipsticks!
