    Hi Paris, I have tried this in the counter yesterday too, and surprisingly I do not falls in love with them too as the colors choices available are quite similar. It claims to be hydrating for 8 hours but once I removed it, I feels the drying effect but this does not happen the same to the Dior Addict Fluid Stick. Not too sure why this happened. I’m going to try the Laneige Water Drops Lip Tints if this happen the same. You might want to give us your thought on this too. ;)

      Whew! I’m not alone in this Sharon, thanks for affirming that! ;) I wasn’t thrilled with it and while I didn’t notice it being particularly hydrating, it thankfully didn’t dry my lips out. It might be because the Dior Fluid Stick is water based so it could be more hydrating for you? I haven’t tried the Laneige Water Drops – never really paid a lot of attention to Laneige coz I wasn’t thrilled with their makeup before, but will stop and take a look the next time I’m around! :)

    I do like the Dior Fluid Sticks. I agree about them not setting but I usually blot away the excess shine, which isn’t as much of a problem if I apply the formula with a lip brush in thin layers.

    Laneige’s Water Drop tints are less shiny when applied straight from the tube using the applicator and are more suited to sheering out for the gradient lip effect. Dior’s formula doesn’t sheer out as well and is better for a full lip.

    Both formulas are pretty moisturizing but Dior’s slightly more. Laneige’s does give me a bit of that balling-up/peely-lip thing when reapplying but thankfully minimal. The colour of Laneige does deepen as I go about my day sipping water and eating.

      Ah I happen to love that shine from the Dior Fluid Stick :D But not so much the feeling on my lips. The formula is otherwise very impressive when it comes to pigment though. I like it for that. I haven’t tried this Laneige Water Drops that seems popular. I wasn’t terribly impressed with Laneige makeup when I tried it a few years ago and never paid attention again. I guess I should eh? Or is it the K-pop effect that’s making it so popular now? :D

        I think it’s definitely the effect of Cheon Son Yi (My Love From Another Star)! Her pop of bright lip against a pared down face is very modern. Kate (Drivel About Frivol) had very good things to say about Laneige’s new line of lipsticks which come in bright colours too. Might be another one worth trying. :)

        Ah yes, I’ve heard that name bandied about a lot recently but K-pop or K-drama isn’t my thing so I’m just all “What? Who?” LOL :D Will take a look next time I pass by Laneige, thanks!

    Money saved! Was initially waiting for these to arrive, but after seeing it is quite transparent and uneven on the lips and swatches, it is no question that I will forgo this! Thank u paris *bow down with joy*

      LOL Still, doesn’t hurt taking a look! I do like Beige Adage, which has a lovely texture and is more pigmented so I suspect they come in slightly different formulas for different shades :)

    I don’t really understand the appeal of these new lip products. They’re basically just overhyped lip glosses, both in texture and colour opacity. Too bad :(

      hehe you said it! These especially are just straight up lip glosses. A little more hydrating maybe, but still glosses!

    Belle de Rouge seems really disappointing. And you look lovely in Beige Adage

      Thank you Lana :D Yes, I was very disappointed with Belle de Rouge since it’s a colour I like, but Beige Adage really surprised me! Would you be checking these out though?

    Hey Paris, these look great on you! I own one and I don’t find it thick and goopy at all LOL For me the formula is pretty smooth!

      Thanks Sunny! Perhaps it’s the different textures? That said, I’m not a fan of lipglosses mostly so I’m terribly sensitive to goopiness!

    Mmm, I was expecting something a bit more pigmented to be honest. They don’t look like anything special, so I’ll pass. Thanks for the review.

      Yep, I’d wait for something else to come along Gio. These are just lip glosses!

    it has been a while i comment here on MWS. I love the packaging, very easy to open (just a click!), love the non-sticky formula, and the colors are pretty too (so many choices, hard to make decision). but i had too many lip products already.. shall think twice before i get another new color. lol

      Hi Jean, welcome back LOL :) That’s true about it being easy to open, but on the flip side, it also means you have to be extra careful because anything can cause the cover to pop up! Maybe go for a shade you don’t have? Like a deep purple maybe? ;)

    When I picked up the tester and saw the packaging, I didn’t even bother to swatch it because it’s really disaster awaiting to happen. No way it’s going near any of my bag or makeup pouch.

      LOL!! Too true! So far, I haven’t had the inside of my makeup pouch coated with a goopy mess, but you know, never say never! *touchwood*

    you seem to be a big fan of those hybrids, heh? ;) *irony off*. I am actually not the biggest fan of lancome, nothing wowed me, but I like the lip lovers. but I am not wowed by them either, ywim? too bad you don’t like the fluid sticks, I am lustering after all those reds (meanwhile I have three and want to leave it at that, lol). I don’t want to hoard too much fluid stuff anyway. I have one lip lover, no not red this time, the purple one, forgot the name. xxx

      LOL Yes Claire, a HUGE fan ;) I’m definitely in the minority when it comes to the Fluid Sticks. I love the colours and the pigment, I’m not crazy about the formula but I haven’t heard a bad word said against them by anyone so yep, definitely in the minority! The Lip Lover is I think nice, but yeah, not wowed or wowing. Too “normal” to be special I think. Better luck next time, Lancome!

    They look like gel stain, if there’s such a thing! :p You look so chic and pretty. On the uneven application… just wondering, do you have to shake it a bit or something? :p

    • Paris B
      June 7, 2014

      Haha jelly lips! :D Thanks Ting. Nah, the application is mostly to do with the formula and the wand. It’s like a gloss and you know how some glosses don’t go on evenly all over? Yeah, it’s like that.

    i have lip lover in framboise etoile. i like the color, but you’re right, they’re nothing special. someone who likes to layer lip gloss over lip stain might enjoy them more though.

      That would make sense, Joy. It’ll cut their work in half ;)
