Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in “Tease” Review & Swatch-
I was too floored by the texture of my Dior lip glow lip balm to pass over the chance of grabbing a Dior lacquer stick when I found it on sale at John Lewis ^_^ Even though I love it to bits, I wish I had first swatched the shades at a counter before blind ordering it :-/
What Dior Says-
Try Dior Addict Lacquer Stick, the new-generation lacquer stick by Dior, as easy to apply as it is to wear.
A stick with a ‘lip fondant’ effect that liberates all the colour and shine of a lacquer, plus the comfort of a balm, with 6 hours* of wear and unrivalled texture.
“For this new generation of lacquers, I wanted the comfort of a hydrating balm without compromising on colour intensity and shine. All this beauty can be found in one stick: our Dior Addict Lacquer Stick.”Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup.
- Extreme shine procured by the ‘Lacquer cocktail:’ an exclusive Dior mix of 5 of the shiniest, ultra-light oils, along with nourishing and long-wearing beeswax.
- Intense colour in one sweep of the stick with an almost crystalline base, 44% sheerer than a classic lipstick,* for colour with unprecedented brilliance.* A ‘lip fondant’ texture effect derived from a new, softer and slower process of pouring the stick for a deliciously fondant core and a ‘liquid’ shine effect.
Price: 29 GBP for 3.2 gm.
My take on the Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in “Tease”-
The packaging is luxurious & convenient- a sturdy dark plum lid over a silver tube but unfortunately the entire range comes in identical packaging & that makes it really difficult to distinguish if you have multiple ones. Otherwise it is travel friendly & convenient 🙂
The texture is smooth, buttery & very emollient, easy to apply & feels lush & lovely on lips. I never need any lip balm underneath & that’s saying a lot since I have very dry lips.
The pigmentation is sheer-buildable so it goes on like a tinted lip balm & can be layered on for a juicy, saturated color pay-off which I love nowadays 🙂 It does not accentuate my lip flaws at all & instead hydrates & smoothes it really well 🙂
The shade “Tease” is a bright, warm pink with a slightly coral undertone which I don’t get along with much 🙁 Corals never flatter my pink-based skin tone & I blame myself for not swatching this before ordering 😐 However, it would look lovely on light-medium yellow based complexions & I make it work with a warm lip pencil beneath since I do love it that much not to use it (and not to mention how pricey it is :-|)
The lip color is very hydrating & lasts really long on lips considering how soft & glossy it is. It wears away gradually after 5-6 hours leaving behind a pink stain.
The lipstick has a faint vanilla fragrance which fades within minutes of application.
Pros of the Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in “Tease”:
1> Luxurious, sturdy plum lid with a silver tube packaging 🙂
2> Texture is soft, smooth & buttery & very easy to apply evenly on lips.
3> My lips feel soothed, comforted with a plumped, juicy effect.
4> Hydration is amazing & lips feel moist even after it wears away.
5> “Tease” is a bright warm coral pink which would look lovely on yellow skin tones.
6> Lasts for a good amount of time & leaves a stain behind.
7>Mild, vanilla fragrance which fades away in moments.
Cons of the Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in “Tease”:

Do I recommend the Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in “Tease”?
Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in “Tease” is a warm coral pink which does not look good on me much since I have a cooler skin tone but I simply love the buttery soft texture, the juicy finish, ease of application & the luxurious packaging 🙂 I would definitely recommend it & look forward to picking up a few more shades!
