Dior Bonne Aventure Addict Extreme Review & Swatches

Dior Bonne Aventure Addict Extreme

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:

369 Mystic, 546 Gri Gri, 619 Fortune, 986 Bonne Aventure

Mystic // Gri Gri // Fortune // Bonne Aventure

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.

    Hi there :)

    By any chance do you know how does it compare with Dior Addict Extreme Paparazzi 866? Thanks

      You’re in luck! I was thinking of buying Paparazzi, so I swatched them side by side. Unfortunately I don’t have a photo though. They’re similar-ish, but Paparazzi is noticeably brighter.
