One of my all-time favorite lipstick formulas is Dior’s Addict Extreme. Black Tie (previously reviewed) is currently my most frequently used lipstick! Dior just released a few new Addict Extreme shades as part of its Mystics Metallics collection, and I headed over to Nordstrom yesterday to check them them out (one of the shades is a Nordstrom exclusive).
I’m actually a little bit confused about the availability of the shades in this collection. There are two shades – Bonne Aventure and Gri-Gri – that are widely available and, I think, permanent. They’re both listed on Nordstrom’s website both separately and with the rest of the Addict Extremes. Bonne Aventure is listed on Sephora.com, but Gri-Gri is not (yet?).
There’s a third shade, Fortune, that is a Nordstrom-exclusive, but sold out online. It’s a rosy nude, and really lovely – I swatched it yesterday and I’m thinking about going back for it.
And then, I found this image online, labeled as follows:
The three lipsticks I have swatched look correctly labeled, but I can’t find any information about the fourth one, Mystic. Odd!
Moving on to the actual review, Bonne Aventure – the shade I purchased – is fantastic. It is smooth, creamy, and quite pigmented. Like the other Addict Extremes I own, it’s very comfortable to wear.
Best of all is the color – it’s just the right mix of plum and rose – off the top of my head, I actually don’t think I have anything very similar! I would definitely recommend both the Addict Extreme line overall, and Bonne Aventure in particular.
