Lucky & Avenue: Dior Addict Extreme

I’ve decided to feature the next Dior Addict Extreme style extract Lucky. The main colour is 536 Lucky (duh!), and the 2 other shades are 667 Avenue and 366 Pink Icon. I don’t have Pink Icon with me, so for this post, I’ll only feature two. This post is mainly to show you the swatches. I’ll have a summary post of the texture and feel in a later post.

 

Lucky is named after one of Christian Dior’s favourite models, a supermodel of the 50s. Her real name was Lucie Daouphars (1922-1963). She was a household name back then, a fashion icon, as is Kate Moss today. Here is a photo of them side by side.

 

 

Lucky, the style extract, is a trio of bold daring pinks, for the fashionista in you. You will see the swatch below (Lucky, Avenue), swiped 4 times on my arm. Since they are both from the same style extract, the colours do not vary too much. They are both bold pinks, in different under tones. Just like Incognito – nudes in different shades. What I like about these bold shades is that I can also wear them sheer for a subtle stain on my lips.

 

Lucky is a bright pink with slight blue undertones, and for it to show up really bold, I am wearing about 4 to 5 layers here, using a lip brush. Colour, blot, colour, blot, you get the idea. I find this shade playful and lively.

 

 

Avenue is a warmer pink with hints of red. This shade is more flattering on me, I find. What do you think? I’ve been wearing this shade for work and have been getting compliments =)

 

 

These 2 colours brighten a look the instance you swipe on your lips. On days I’m super lazy, just a swipe of either Lucky or Avenue will bring colour to my face. From these pictures, which one is calling to you? Lucky or Avenue?

    OMG I WANT!!!!! However, I have enough pinks already >.<

    • Lily

      Oh, but Hanny, there are so many versions of pink! LOL! There are so many shades to choose from – Plaza, Riviera, Lucky, Incognito… have you decided which one you want?

  • Hello love! Avenue looks great on you! I am actually thinking if I should get one of these Dior lippies or should I give Shiseido Maquillage’s lippies a go seeing I’ve already tried Dior Addict…

    • Lily

      Heya Sukie, been a while since I saw you here. Welcome back and thx for the compliment! Oh, I’m a big fan of Dior lippies, so I’ll definitely say, go for Dior Addict Extreme! The texture is to die for. So creamy…

    Oooo Lily, you look gorgeous! I really like this post with all the swatches & full-face photos you did. Must have taken you a lot of time but I’m sure everybody would really appreciate it!

    I own Lucky already, so I think I’d probably have to go with Avenue. I think the difference is subtle though. Unless you own both you wouldn’t be able to spot it. Lucky looks another notch cooler on me, but that’s probably because my undertone is warmer than yours (or because I’m not as fair)?

    Anywaz. Love this nice comparison/swatches/review! xx

      Aaw, thanks Sunny. Yes, Lucky and Avenue look really similar, but if I were to differentiate them, I’d say Avenue will suit warmer skintones like ours. I do have warm yellow undertones, and I’m not sure, maybe my skin is lighter so I can pull off cool tones too. Having said that, I can’t exactly pull off bubblegum pink, I don’t think! Watch out for my next post on Plaza style extract. I love Black Tie!

  • Bellen

    Beuatiful colours that look so good on you! You look gorgeous especially on the last picture!

    • Lily

      Aaw, thank you Bellen =) The lip colours and texture are amazing!

  • Hiza

    Wow Lucky is such a gorgeous colour! You look so pretty wearing it 🙂 Is it available at Dior Jusco Ipoh now? And how much is the price?

    • Lily
