Review + swatches – Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in 577 Lazy and 925 Sauvage

Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in 577 Lazy and 925 Sauvage review and swatches

For Spring 2017, Dior Beauty, under the direction of Creative Director Peter Philips, reformulated its popular Dior Addict lipsticks. The new Dior Addict Lacquer Sticks (C$43) feature increased pigmentation along with high shine and high moisture content.

The new formula wears very comfortably, and is significantly more pigmented than the last generation of Dior Addict lipsticks. The texture is very soft, and you cannot twist up more lipstick than you need or else it will break when you apply it. It also feels way slicker on the lips than before, with a wet glossy finish. My lips feel gently moisturized, but I have very dry lips so I still prefer to nourish with lip balm before applying this. It is scented with a powdery rose fragrance, similar to some of the older Dior lipsticks, but a bit more modernized.

It comes in a variety of shades, but the two I wanted to share with you today are 577 Lazy and 925 Sauvage.  577 Lazy is a cool-toned mauve that wears very milky on the lips. 925 Sauvage is a dark, vampy, chocolate brown. Both shades wear very wet on the lips, with a lot of slip. Wear time is not great, maybe lasting through 2-3 hours of full wear, but the darker shade Sauvage does stain so you can get a few more hours of stained lips. I would recommend wearing a lip liner underneath this to prevent feathering, otherwise it will bleed a bit outside of the lip lines.

While I really like that wet look and the improved pigmentation, unfortunately I dislike the feathering and bleeding and short wear time. It seems like it’d be a nice topper for another lipstick, but when worn on its own, its too high maintenance for not the best return on investment. Personally, I would pass on this and get something like the Charlotte Tilbury KISSING Lipsticks, or Burberry Kisses (not a coincidence there, just good quality formulas!).

  1. So many have recommended me Dior lip products but I honestly haven’t got around to trying it! These looked promising but what a shame about the feathering and bleeding, those are a huge NO NO to me.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments!
