Review, Swatch - Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick Black Tie

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.

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!
