Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in 886 Paparazzi Review

Another winter is fast approaching and there’s another dark lip coming out of my collection ready to be rocked. This time, its the Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in 886 Paparazzi and I’ll be reviewing it today.

The Dior Addict Extreme Lipsticks are all about providing the lips with a radiant colour and wet look texture.  They’re designed to be soft and smoothing as they contain four specialist waxes in the formula that make the lipsticks comfortable, shiny and long lasting.

The shades in the range vary from nudes through to bolds but as you would expect from Dior, they’re elegant, classic shades that transcend generations and occasions so they can be worn by anyone to anything.

The Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in 866 Paparazzi is often described as being a rosy berry shade which it definitely is when you’re looking at it in the bullet and in some lights.  I’ve looked at swatches online and on many people it looks like a very berry shade.  However on myself, I think that this shade shows as more of a red.

Granted it does have a bit of a berry tone to it and I can definitely see how it is often described as cool and rosy but on me, it definitely looks quite red.  Do let me know if you agree or if you think my eyes are deceiving me.

My favourite thing about this lipstick, aside from the fact that it glides onto the lips smoothly, is that it feels really comfortable and hydrating to wear yet it doesn’t bleed.  I have so many dark lipsticks that I avoid wearing because they bleed, even when wearing a lip liner but this one doesn’t on me which I’m so pleased about as its the perfect colour to wear over Christmas when I’m out and about all day and want something sophisticatedly festive.

I’m not sure if its because of the waxes in the formula but it hangs around for ages on the lips and doesn’t transfer easily like some of my more hydrating lipsticks do.  I love the shine that it leaves on my lips and the strong but grown up colour!

While admittedly this shade isn’t my favourite from my whole collection, I love the formula and would most certainly purchase more lipsticks from this line at Dior again.  I especially love the gorgeous packaging which looks so pretty when I pull it out of my bag to top up my lip colour!

    I really need to find a long lasting lipstick :/ I love my Estee Lauder ones but they don't actually stay on for very long even if they are very moisturising! Thanks for the recommendation 🙂

    I love the fragrance Dior Addict and the lip stick appears to be equally lush. Very lovely shade.
