Dior Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a formula that has the effect of “shiny gloss and pigmented lipstick into one color-rich product.” It is also supposed to be long-wearing, lightweight, and have coverage “that is between a gloss and lipstick.” They have a very creamy, slightly gel-like consistency that’s light-medium in thickness, an ultra-glossy finish, and good color coverage. The texture is non-sticky initially, but it develops moderate tackiness within a few minutes of wear. The major issue I had with this formula was that it was very prone to getting on my teeth, and there’s a fine line between even coverage and over-application. It’s comfortable to wear and fairly hydrating over time, and the formula, thus far, has lasted longer than the average gloss on me. It feels, behaves, and looks more like a really pigmented lipgloss than a liquid lipstick. It had a perfume-y scent that is stronger during application than it is worn. At times, I felt like I was tasting it here and there (almost soapy), but it was faint enough that sometimes I thought I was imagining it. I love the color payoff, glossiness, and length of wear, but the tackiness and scent/taste keep me from being in love personally.
