One of the 2 new Dior Addict lipsticks I picked up is this one – Icone No. 681. With 44 shades to choose from, I was boggled and picked this one because Connie came up to me, looked at the swatches on my arm, decided that the rest were too similar to stuff I already own and told me to go with this one. And I did and I’m loving it so thank you Connie! :D
Icone is a lovely pink toned red. It looks quite strong in the tube, but like most of the Addict range, it applies a little more sheer. On my lips, the pink tone shows up more than the red and I love this one for an everyday lipstick. It goes with everything!
You can wear it with strong eyes (it doesn’t overshadow the eyes) or you can use it to brighten up your look if you are going with something more toned down. And best of all, its a great colour for work – you won’t get told off for wearing something too bright, yet you’d look lovely and perky, ready to tackle your work!
Like Tango, the new Dior Addict formula is sheerer than it looks in the tube, but it is pigmented and lasts quite long for me. There is slip, but it does not have the slip of a lipbalm, yet does not feel heavy on the lips. Best of all, there’s no scent.
Some have commented that Dior Addict lipsticks feel a little sticky. This I concur. Its not uncomfortable, and I believe that this “stickiness” helps the colour stay on longer.
Pros: Sheer lightweight texture, Lovely colour and pigment, Lasts on my lips
Cons: Not in love with the packaging, Pricey
Incidentally, this colour is very close to Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Antigone and as I told you before, I prefer the texture of Dior – I’ll have a side by side match up soon enough :)
