When Dior first announced the upcoming new Dior Addict Extreme lipsticks, I was really excited because they seemed to be such a gorgeous collection of colours. The twelve Addict Extreme lipsticks have been categorised into four different “Iconic” ranges; Incognito, Lucky, Riviera and Plaza. One of my favourite colours from this collection is Black Tie, which falls within the Plaza line-up.
Black Tie appears to be blackish-brown in the tube and looks quite shocking until applied to the lips.
When worn, Black Tie goes on as a deep plummy-wine shade with a slight violet undertone. It has a semi-sheer quality and is not a fully pigmented colour straight from the tube. The balmy texture feels rather moisturising and I didn’t face any issues with application even when my lips tend to be a little dry. The Addict Extreme lipstick is also lightweight and very comfortable on lips.

As it has some slip, it is not the most long-lasting colour even if it is a somewhat dark shade. It lasts approximately 3 to 4 hours over a couple of drinks and it goes off after eating. For a balmy lipstick, the lasting power is pretty good. I like the fact that it doesn’t get patchy when it fades.
Compared to a regular Addict lipstick, the Addict Extreme feels more moisturising and I really do prefer the consistency as well. In terms of colour, I do find that the regular Addict is slightly more pigmented but that is only because the colours I have are deep reds.
Overall, I love how the lipstick looks, feels and applies. Black Tie is definitely my kind of colour as I do tend to like vampy shades and it is not too rich that it looks overdone for the daytime. The Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick is priced at RM98 and yes, the price tag is rather expensive but it is a high quality lipstick and after all, it is Dior.
