I am a red lipstick fiend, especially in autumn and winter. I’m already looking through my lipstick collection and making sure I have one for every occasion. As I was looking, I found one that I’ve had a while but have never reviewed: the Dior Addict Lacquer in American Girl (a shade that has been discontinued!) This product is sold at Sephora and similar retailers for $37 (and if you like this shade – I think that 877 Turn Me Dior is the closest current shade to this one).
I adore the original Dior Addict lipsticks – they are comfortable to wear and last most of the day. They are longwear with minimal dryness. However, the Lacquer version of the Dior Addict lipsticks dry out the lips even less than the original. I experience zero dryness with these and I still get an all-day or almost all-day color.
There is a small drawback to this Lacquer version of lipstick: it can be a bit messy. It’s as opaque as a layer of paint. Because of this, you’ll only need one coat – but you’ll need to be very careful when applying it. Also, it’s a bit wet in terms of texture but it never dries down completely. This means it is prone to smudging, especially if you’re eating something like a sandwich where you might open your mouth very wide.
That being said, I really like this lipstick. I’ve learned that it’s best to apply just a very thin layer to keep smudging to a minimum. Also, I just really love this bright cherry red shade, so I’m bummed that they’ve discontinued this particular shade. Thankfully, I’ve got a lot left though. The one I have has a satin finish, but a few of them have glitter finishes, so that’s probably what I’ll have to try next!
Have you tried this lip lacquer or another type of lacquer? How did it compare to traditional lipstick for you? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!
Thanks for reading!
