Whenever I get the urge to enter a Sephora (an urge that happens quite often) I am drawn to the Dior display like a mesmerized moth to a burning flame.  Dior Addict Fluid Stick 869 Vie D’Enfer and 219 Whisper Beige ($35 USD/ 5.5 ml/.18 fl. oz.) were the two colors that were invoking the faintest plea for me to find them a home (see how my mind works).  Being the benevolent soul that I am, I immediately answered the call and happily added them to my growing Dior Addict Fluid Stick collection 🙂

As with Dior Addict Fluid Stick 893 Trompe L’Oeil and 975 Minuit (reviewed here and here), both 869 Vie D’Enfer and 219 Whisper Beige are smooth and hydrating.  Whenever I wear this formula, my lips never feel dried-out, even well after the color has faded.  Granted, when worn on their own the lasting power averages 2-3 hours at most. However, when paired with It Cosmetics Your Lips But Better Waterproof Lipliner (a new discovery), Dior Addict Fluid Sticks last up to five hours.  The two formulas seem to bind together immediately (unlike with other lipliners), resulting in a deeper color, denser consistency, and amazing longevity.  Personally, I love the overall effect, especially because this particular lipliner really keeps feathering at bay.

Dior Addict Fluid Stick 869 Vie D’Enfer is a coral/red that adds a touch of brightness and warmth to most complexions.  My sister, who has a cool undertone and presently darker than I am, was able to rock this color despite her initial hesitation.

Dior Addict Fluid Stick 219 Whisper Beige is a light beige color with a warm undertone.  My intent for this shade was to layer it over darker colors.  Predictable on its own, 219 Whisper Beige does not last long at all–2 hours tops.  However, when added to other long-lasting lipsticks or lipliners, this seemingly unimpressive shade works its magic and delivers shine, hydration, and the perfect amount a diffused loveliness to any look.  This shade also plays well with other Dior Addict Fluid Sticks.  I love the resulting hue when paired with 975 Minuit.

When paired with Estee Lauder 210 Impulsive (reviewed here), Dior Addict Fluid Stick 869 Vie D’Enfer added warmth to this very pale shade of pink.  The resulting hue is the perfect summer-time coral.  The addition of It Cosmetics Spicy Nude Lipliner extended the wear an impressive five and half hours (without eating) and completely eliminated the threat of bleeding lipstick.

When paired with It Cosmetics Spicy Nude Lipliner, 219 Whisper Beige takes on a deeper and more noticeable persona (on my skin tone at least).  This combo lasted five hours, with copious amounts of speaking and drinking water (with a straw).  Not bad!!

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you Dior Addict Fluid Sticks are amazing.  If you want to add shine, hydration and dimension to your lip look, then these lipstick/lipgloss hybrids are for you.  The coupling of It Cosmetics Your Lips But Better Waterproof Lipliner with Dior Addict Fluid Sticks is a combination made in makeup heaven 🙂 Guess what I’ll be reviewing next…Be well, stay safe and be happy.
