Swatch, FOTD - Dior Addict Fluid Stick Vertigo (689)

There are many different opinions about this new hybrid from Dior, but I must say I am a fan.
I've become to like it even more since my first Fluid Stick (reviewed here), which is why I ended up purchasing another one soon after.
This time I went with a deeper and brighter shade called "Vertigo".

Vertigo (689)

This is another unswatched blind purchase. Wonderland was considered at first since it seemed my kind of bright pink being significantly cool-toned. Then, I remembered these hybrid colors with stain do deepen once applied on lips. I wanted something intense but not so intense that it would end up looking red on me.

Enter Vertigo.
In my view, Vertigo and Wonderland are in the same color family.
However, Vertigo is lighter and somewhat muted compared to Wonderland which has more of a pure color intensity.

Vertigo is a retro color if you ask me.
For some reason, it reminds me of the classic Revlon shade Cherries in the snow.
It is a reddish pink with some white thrown in, which would have made it almost unwearable for me if not for the particular finish of Dior Fluid Stick.

I am extremely happy with my color choice. Vertigo turned out to be the exact thing I wanted - a vibrant color that instantly brightens up my complexion while looking lighthearted. 
Maybe I lucked out with the color choice, or maybe I've gotten quite good with blind shopping over the years in which case I should feel a little proud.
But at the same time, how scary is that for my wallet? (And any retail store with untrained ignorant salespeople and less-than-stellar service should be scared, too.)

Here are a couple of pics of me wearing Dior Addict Fluid Stick Vertigo.

I have no idea why I look so startled in this picture. (I wasn't. ;p)

Thanks for looking!
