Let’s Go On Vacation: Dior Addict Extreme Riviera

These 3 shades make me feel like summer is here already! Wait, that was weird…  I live in a country that is hot and humid all year round. Let me correct myself. These 3 shades make me feel like I’m sailing on a boat, sun bathing in a bikini (not that I’ve ever worn one in my adult life), looking chic with a scarf covering my windblown hair and large sunnies shading my eyes. That’s more like it.

The 3 colours I will be featuring today are 639 Riviera, 479 Holiday and 486 Cruise. I initially thought the colour families contain similar shades, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on this one. Holiday and Cruise definitely belong together, but Riviera stuck out like a sore thumb. LOL!

 

 

As you can see in the swatch below, Riviera is a bright coral, and Holiday & Cruise are, well, pinks. I do think there are a little too many pinks in this collection, and some are too similar, but these two are different. Holiday reminds me of Bubbles from Powerpuff Girls (don’t ask me why) and Cruise is a cool toned rosey pink.

 

 

I took a bit of time to think what look to pair with these 3 lip colours. I did a minimal look for Plaza to show off the lip colours, a soft smokey eye for Lucky and basically, a camouflaged face for Incognito. For Riviera, I’ll just use live background. Let’s all think we’re on vacation in Bali. LOL! Here are a few full faced photos to show you the lip colours, starting with Holiday (a little too sheer on my lips), Riviera (bright orange) and Cruise (a darker pink on my lips compared to the swatch on my hand). I hope you like them.

 

 

 

 

The Dior Addict Extreme lipsticks are now already available at all Dior counters nationwide. They retail for RM98 each and there are 12 shades in total. I have swatched for you all 11, missing Pink Icon. These buttery creamy long wearing lipsticks are definitely a must have in your stash.

Have you already purchased yours? Which one takes your fancy?

  • BreAnnNicole

    I think you’re so right about riviera sticking out like a sore thumb! I really like Holiday esp on you, it’s lovely!

    • Lily

      Don’t you think Holiday is a little too sheer on me?

  • Sunny @ Mostly Sunny

    I love how Cruise looks on you! Out of the three I own Riviera, and I like how easy it is to wear this color! Even when I’m not wearing anything else, just putting some of it on instantly makes me look more “interesting” lol

    Did you get the pics taken when you were on holiday? Love the background!

    • Lily

      Cruise is a lovely pink, isn’t it? I took the pictures at home… our back garden =D

      • Sunny @ Mostly Sunny

        That’s your back garden??? Can I go on holiday in your house? lol

        • Lily

          Sure =D Next time you’re in Malaysia, you know who to call! And FYI, those are so NOT my work. I don’t garden. I kill plants. They’re all my parents-in-law’s work of art. It’s their house after all.

          • Sunny @ Mostly Sunny

            Wow, your in-laws have really made their back garden into a villa in Bali! So amazing!

  • Hiza

    You look stunning in all pictures Lily 🙂 btw i think i saw you at Jusco last night, hmm your daughters were wearing cute scarfs on their heads if im not mistaken?

    • Lily

      LOL! Yeah… they wanted to be pirates and their dad bought the scarfs on a whim just so they could play pretend. Say hi next time =D

      • Hiza

        Awhh they are soo adorable 😀 I was a bit unsure at that time whether it was you or not, yeah sure I’ll definitely say hi next time 😉

        • Lily

          Well, maybe sometimes you’ll catch me scolding the girls… so you saying hi at that time will definitely save them from more scolding. Hahaha!

  • Hi Lily, I was just googling Dior swatches and came across your post 🙂 I’m loving Cruise! I havnt tried them so I think it’s finally time!

    • Oh you must try these Dior Addict Extremes. They are all absolutely lovely. My favourite has to be Black Tie 🙂 Can’t wait to read what you think of them!
