Dior Incognito Addict Extreme Lipstick
They’ll Never Know with Color Like This
Dior Incognito Addict Extreme Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a subtly rose-tinted beige with a natural shine. Make Up For Ever #N40 is lighter, more beige. Tom Ford Blush Nude is lighter. Chanel Superstition is gold-shimmered. MAC Woo Me is several shades lighter. MAC Mellow Mood has a similar color but also has gold shimmer.
Talk about an effortless nude! I like to think of nude color as if your natural lip color and your skin color merged together to form something natural and infinitely flattering–on you. This might be why it can be a challenge to find that perfect nude. Many nudes are very pale, light, and don’t always work as nudes on a lot of complexions. Incognito takes the natural pink and beige tones often found in the skin to create a nude that will work really well on light to medium complexions. It might be lighter than nude for medium-dark to dark skin tones (but it can still be worn–it just might not be your perfect nude, you know?).
After testing a bolder shade in the range, I wasn’t surprised that this one wasn’t long-wearing like Dior described it to be. It does have mostly opaque color with a natural shine, but the wear is right around four hours, which is what I typically get with most lipsticks, including plenty of Dior shades from the past. Incognito applies more evenly than Lucky when I was trialing it, but it had the same subtle translucency that gives it a really lush look on lips. The texture is creamy enough that it slides across lips without tugging, but it’s not thick or heavy. Not drying, lightly hydrating, it’s an all-around comfortable formula to wear. It has a light perfume-y scent that I couldn’t notice once applied.
