Dior Vie d’Enfer (869) Dior Addict Fluid Stick

Dior Vie d’Enfer (869) Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl oz.) is a brightened, medium, blue-based red with a creamy, glossy finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and it applied evenly and smoothly. This shade wore well for five hours on me. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $15.00) is darker. Giorgio Armani #400 (P, $29.00) is warmer. NARS Norma (P, $26.00) is darker. MAC Send Me Sailing (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Russian Red (P, $15.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Dior Intrigue (995) Dior Addict Fluid Stick ($35.00 for 0.18 fl oz.) is a cool-toned, purpled berry with a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage–it was the least pigmented out of the shades I bought to try–and settled noticeably into lip lines. The gloss managed to wear just over five hours on me. MAC Modern Lure (LE, $15.00) is shimmery. Maybelline Caviar Couture (050) (P, $8.99) is brighter. Tom Ford Beauty Wet Violet (P, $45.00) is darker, purpler. MAC Rebel (LE, $15.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

To recap, the 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.

P.S. — This wraps up all my reviews on this formula — all shades I bought have now been reviewed! 🙂 If you missed any, you can see them all here!

Intrigue could have been so gorgeous.. The rest of the lineup is very nice with some super pretty colours, but at the price point, I would be challenged to buy.

Intrigue applied and looked so different compared to the others! It was the last one I swatched and was totally surprised.

Oh Vie d’Enfer is so hot! It reminds me of Givenchy’s Carmin Escarpin.. colorwise, that one looks quite orange on me under flash!

These are so intriguing with beautiful package at that! I know you said you have about 5 hours of wear but do these compare to the YSL glossy stains at all? I have 4 of them so I’m very familiar with the consistency and staying power

Pity about Intrigue. Vie d’Enfer is pretty. I don’t think I’ll get any of these, as the price here is ridiculous. I just checked, and a lipstick from the new Estée Lauder line up is somewhere around $47. Make up is so overpriced here.
If Intrigue had been really good, I might have bought it anyway, as I love purple and berry toned lips.
I love how Vie d’Enfer looked on you Christine.

*sigh* I had the feeling that Intrigue would do the lipliney thing when you actually put it on your lips! Ah well, I still approve of them putting a properly vampy gloss in the collection. I think I’d probably end up wearing it over lipstick (which I don’t generally like to do, oddly enough), so it might actually be…safe from me?! *gasp*

More space in my piggy bank for Rieuse and Magique, then? 😉

If one were to wear this, either lip liner or lipstick would be helpful to give it a smoother base, and then you’ll get all the glossiness you want! Though realistically, a lot of vamps are opaque, so clear gloss would work, too.

How bizarre that Intrigue and the dupes that you show all are streaky. The other shades including Vie D’enfer are gorgeous and the packaging is great too. $35 is just too pricey for a lipgloss for me.
