Dior Tiny Pink (269) Dior Addict Fluid Stick
Dior Tiny Pink (269) Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl oz.) is a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with some translucency, but it covered the natural lip color for the most part. There was some minor settling of the color into vertical lip lines, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Flushed (P, $19.00) is less glossy, darker. Paul and Joe Beaute Carnaval (06) (P, $29.00) is darker. Maybelline Caramel Infused (065) (P, $8.99) is a touch lighter. MAC Viva Glam Nicki (LE, $15.00) is less warm-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Dior Rieuse (373) Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl oz.) is a slightly muted, medium coral-pink with a creamy, glossy finish. It had rich, mostly opaque pigmentation that covered my natural lip color. It applied evenly and smoothly, and it wore well for five hours on me. Dior Magique (479) (P, $35.00) is pinker. Hourglass Muse (P, $28.00) is darker, brighter. NARS Paris Follies (LE, $26.00) is similar. MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty Paint It (202) (P, $28.00) is warmer. MAC Fever Isle (LE, $20.00) is shimmery. Revlon Papaya (P, $7.49) is shimmery. MAC Star Quality (LE, $20.00) is slightly pinker. Illamasqua Mistress (P, $22.00) is brighter. Hourglass Nectar (P, $28.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
This formula is supposed to have the effect of “shiny gloss and pigmented lipstick into one color-rich product.” It is also described as long-wearing, lightweight, and having coverage “that is between a gloss and lipstick.” The texture is lightweight, creamy, and almost cool-to-the-touch when initially applied, but it thickens slightly and clings more to the natural curvature of the lip without being uncomfortable. A slight tackiness develops shortly after application and gets progressively tackier as it wears on, though it never feels too sticky or gluey. It feels mostly like a more opaque lipgloss than a liquid lipstick. It was fairly hydrating and wore longer than the average gloss. 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 also had issues with the color getting on my teeth.
