Review, Swatch - Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick Black Tie

2.09.2014

So my love affair with Dior Addict range continues.

Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick is the "edgy" one among the four Dior Addict sisters, and my choice Black Tie is a perfect example of a beautiful vampy lip color.

Product description

Dior Addict Extreme combines vibrant color intensity with the perfection of luminous shine. Extreme, almost breathtaking shades make lips glow with radiant shine in vibrant colors with dazzling pure pigments.Twelve shots of color, from the most daring pinks to nude beiges, make a bold statement.



Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick is housed in an extremely chic case in classic Dior dark blue with silver accents.
I wish it was more compact like the Lip Glow, but I shouldn't really complain about it.
Gorgeous.

The lipstick bullet looks quite scary being almost black.



But fear not cause once applied, it is not scary at all.

Black Tie is a bright vamp color with lots of pink and purple undertone.
The formulation is truly excellent with smooth application and vibrant color payoffs.

I have compared Dior Black Tie to my other vampy lip colors.



I doubted the "long-wear" claim at first since it felt so comfortable on my lips and the finish was quite shiny, but it actually lasted through a pizza dinner.

Black Tie is one of easiest to wear among the vampy lip colors I own but still a striking color, so I feel that I need to pair it with other makeup more carefully.
I found this helpful "casual vampy lips tutorial" and focused on the sheer luminous complexion and kept other parts minimal.


Granted my camera softens the look of complexion and I use insanely bright lightings, but I owe this glow all to the amazing Guerlain Meteorites I won from Wondegondigo blog's giveaway. 
Gotta love the ballz!

    1. Thank you, Sunny!
      This is the prettiest and easiest vamp by far. Definitely go for it! :)

  2. I have this too and it's one of my favorites. It is actually very similar to guerlain gigolo but with a glossier finish.

    1. The name Gigolo always makes me giggle a bit. Thanks for the info. I will keep that in mind. Since I like this color so much, it wouldn't be so bad to have another one in different finish! :)

    1. I knew it would show up lighter on lips but I was still scared before I actually tried it. This is very wearable and I think you'd like it! :)

      I feel actually pretty wearing this shade, which is a rare thing when it comes to vampy lippies. (I usually think I look scary! ;o)

  6. Wow, totally unexpected. From that deep scary dark purplish shade to the beautiful pink toned vampy red, I love it. You've convinced me to look at Dior for some lippies next. I've got some shadows from them and they are a buttery dream!

      Dior eyeshadows are my favorites, too! I have at least five quints and I love them to bits! :)

  9. Oh wow it looks very dark on the tube but looks very beautiful on the lips ^^
    It is indeed a wearable vampy shade, esp in this cold season, perfect!
    I don't have any lipstick from DIOR but I have their lip gloss in Diablotine. I got it as gift, such a nice addition to my lip gloss collection :)

    1. Diablotine is on my wish list! LOL.
      I like wearing darker bolder lip colors in winter, so this is perfect! ;)

  14. I walked past the Dior counter the other day and had the biggest urge to buy the lip glow, all because of you! Black tie is a scary looking shade in the tube, but it wears beautifully!!

    1. I would have never chosen Black Tie if it wasn't for the swatches I've seen from other blogs. ;)
      I wanna see the coral Lip Glow on you! ;D

  15. So glad I've discovered your blog :)

    I've always loved Dior lipsticks, ever since I worked at their counter (for the briefest time mind you, but still fell in love with the products!) and the Dior Addict range is AMAZING and always wears so well :)

    Black tie is such a beautiful colour on you as well!

      I also love Dior foundation and eyeshadows. I totally understand what you mean. It only takes seconds to see how great this couture brand is all around. ;)

  16. Oooooh, sexy Lena! ;D

    I never got into the Addicts because they all seemed really shiny and sheer, but Black Tie is hot. I already have too many vampy lips that I'm not wearing enough, but I'll keep this in mine for later when replenishment day comes. LOL

    1. Black Tie has to be smoothed and sheered out a bit so the finish isn't all that shiny, but you might be right on that.
      I still want more! ;o

  17. sooo gorgeous!! i think this is a much more do-able vampy red than revlon's black berry (not cherry) which i have.

    1. I really like Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks but Dior Addict wears much better. You should try them! :)

  18. It's a lot lighter than I expected it to look, but it's a pretty deep red nonetheless!

    1. Yes! It is one of those "wearable" vampies. ;)

  19. I won't lie, my first thought was: uh oh, that is DARK! But then I saw the swatches and your full face shot and it actually looks very wearable. The color looks great on you!

      That is what I first thought before I saw some swatches on the web!
      It is actually one of those more wearable vamp out there. Love it. ;)

  20. This color looks so pretty on you!! I love how thorough your reviews are too.

    Hehe, and thanks for the compliment on the layout. It was definitely a pain in the butt to organize, haha.

      I am a little cray about clean layouts and fonts on my blog so I tend to change up every so often as well. ;p

  21. Dior lipsticks are my favorite. I used to have a few of the addict line lipsticks when I was younger, but lost them which makes me sad. It has a beautiful finish. I might have to check this one out.

    1. I'm kinda new to the Dior lipstick range in general. I have tried the antique versions but always liked their eyeshadows and powder foundation better. I'm glad I've found them myself. Really good stuff. ;)
