Dior Addict Fluid Stick in 639 Artifice


If you've been following the launch of the new Dior Addict Fluid Sticks, you'll know that Dior has been firmly insisting that THIS IS NOT A LIPSTICK. That is confusing to me. I don't think anyone trying it for the first time would jump to the conclusion that it is lipstick. Looking at the finish, THIS IS NOT A LIP GLOSS may have been more appropriate, but is it really not a lip gloss?

Dior claims that this is a revolutionary new formula that's a lipstick, gloss and lacquer in one. A lip hybrid, if you will. To me, that is not so different in concept from Le Metiér de Beauté Lip Cremes. These are shinier and easier to wipe off, like... a pigmented gloss.


I would say that these Dior sticks redefine the "statement lip." If you think orange lips are bright and attention-grabbing enough, try watery, shiny orange lips!

I've had Artifice for almost two weeks, but I still haven't made up my mind about the formula. After wearing it a few times, I finally understood what other bloggers have been saying about the stickiness. The fluid goes on watery but becomes sticky after a while – not an intolerable lips-stuck-together kind of sticky, but enough that you can feel a slight heaviness on the lips. With the wealth of amazing lip formulas out there, there really is no excuse for this, especially from a brand like Dior.

Yet.

I really like the finish. I can probably replicate it by putting on orange lipstick and applying a clear gloss over it, but it just doesn't feel the same.


The fluid (I originally typed gloss. Dior, can't we just call a spade a spade?) dries down to a really light stain, which I won't get if I were to execute the lipstick+gloss combo. The below picture was taken after two hours of talking, blotting, ice cream eating, and root beer drinking.


Conclusion: If you don't mind mild stickiness in your lip formulas, the Fluid Sticks would be a fun addition to your vanity. As for me, Artifice fills the orange hole in my lip collection so I'll stick with it, but I probably won't be adding more of these to the cart.

Dior Addict Fluid Stick retails for $35 and is currently exclusively available at Macy's and Dior.com. Update: Nordstrom got it!

  9. The Prebuilt eCommerce store must allow for easy integration of chatbots. Chatbots are highly vital for connecting with customers. In our observation, one of the best chatbots is Tido. It allows answering customer queries from multiple channels under a single dashboard.
