Dior Black Tie Addict Extreme Lipstick Review & Swatches

Dior Black Tie Addict Extreme

I used to only wear opaque lipsticks, and mostly mattes at that. I’ve gradually grown to love sheer lipsticks too, but I still prefer sheer lipsticks with a noticeable amount of pigment.  I love the juicy, translucent finish of a good sheer lipstick, but I don’t want it to verge on transparent.  Dior’s Addict Lipsticks never appealed to me, because they are just too close to clear for my tastes (especially for the price). But the Addict Extremes? I’ve been interested in them since they were released, and I finally decided to purchase one (and now I seem to have acquired another – but that’s for another post).

As part of my initial Wet n Wild buying spree, I purchased D-Vinely Chilled Ferguson Crest Cabernet lipstick (reviewed here), which was unfortunately mislabeled as D-Vinely Chilled! I love it so much that I went back and bought six more of the Perfect Pout lipsticks! The only ones I didn’t buy are the two pinks and one shade that appears to have shimmer. These are now available to buy online if you can’t find them locally.

The one thing I don’t like about them is the packaging – it looks cheap, and since the bullet doesn’t retract all the way into the tube, if you aren’t extra-careful, you can easily nick it when putting the cap back on.

These lipsticks look similar to Wet n Wild’s Mega Last matte lip colors, but they are completely different – the Perfect Pout lipsticks are semi-translucent and slightly glossy.  All the colors I purchased are shimmer-free (Fuchsianista has a slight duochrome) and have excellent pigmentation.  I’ve tested a couple of the shades for wear, and the lighter shades last 2-3 hours, while the darker shades last 4-6 hours.  The two nudes and the black do not leave stains; the other four shades do leave stains, which last an additional couple hours after the lipstick fades, and last through a meal.

I have swatches of seven of the shades. The three missing shades are a light pink (V.I.P. Pink), a darker pink (Penthouse Sweet) and a wine color that appears to have shimmer (Ferguson Crest Cabernet).

The reason the Pagan Angel (black) swatch is so messy is that the tip of that lipstick broke off while I was swatching it – I’m pretty sure it was already broken when I bought it.  Since the other six shades are completely fine, I don’t think this is a systemic problem with the lipsticks, but please comment if you have this problem too!

Overall, I would definitely recommend these lipsticks to everyone – I just love the texture and finish! My favorite colors are Ferguson Crest Cabernet and Old School Glam.

I believe that these are currently only available at one specific Walgreens in Los Angeles (at Sunset & Vine), and will be hitting drugstores nationwide in January.

These are now showing up at Walgreens drugstores nationwide!

Wet n Wild & Fergie Ferguson Crest Cabernet Perfect Pout Lip Color Review, Swatches, Photos

Next up, I have Wet n Wild / Fergie Perfect Pout Lip Color, which appears to be a new lipstick formula.  In the tube, it looks similar to the Mega Last lip colors, but the texture is completely different – it has a more translucent look (though it is very pigmented), and is glossy.

I don’t like the packaging – it looks cheap, and since the bullet doesn’t retract all the way into the tube, if you aren’t extra-careful, you can easily nick it when putting the cap back on.

mislabeled! It’s actually Ferguson Crest Cabernet.

I purchased the shade Ferguson Crest Cabernet, (which was mislabeled D-Vinely Chilled; the labels were actually switched!), which is a purple toned berry. All of my swatches came out more pink than the lipstick actually is; I find purples really hard to photograph! The lip swatches are more accurate than the arm swatch.

I really like the texture of the Perfect Pout lipstick I tried – it was weightless and comfortable.   I love the color and finish too! When I wiped off the swatch, I noticed that my lips were stained, so I took a picture of that as well.

I wore this out to dinner last night, and it lasted very well – it wore off over a large meal, but left the type of stain you see above.  I reapplied at the end of the meal, and then it lasted until the end of the night – about four hours. I think it could have lasted six.

Overall, I absolutely love this lipstick – it is comfortable to wear, the color is flattering, I love the finish, and it’s long lasting. I’m going to go back and buy more shades!
