Dior Fall 2015 Collection Dior Addict Fluid Sticks in "Chic", "Versatile" & "Avant-Garde": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Glossy, pigmented, and beautifully packaged, the beloved Dior Addict Fluid Sticks ($42 CAD) are getting a few new shade additions this fall! To see some swatches of the new colors, click......

Packaging:
The Fluid Sticks come in gorgeous gloss tubes that mimic the style of the Dior Addict lipstick tubes. The storage compartment for the product is actually molded to look like the bullet of a real lipstick!
The doe-foot applicator is fairly chunky and wide compared to the standard doe-foot but it works surprisingly well to cover the whole lip in one swipe.

Formulation:
Dior Addict Fluid Sticks are essentially very pigmented and shiny lip glosses. These have a fairly sticky finish which isn't the most comfortable on the lips but they do last quite a bit longer compared to regular lip glosses.
The formulation is hydrating while the gloss is on the lips but I find that as soon as the shine wears off, my lips begin to feel a bit parched

499 Avant-garde: A beige-peach nude that's surprisingly flattering. It also provides a very even and opaque coverage.
748 Chic: This is a subdued chestnut red. The color screams fall and it's so rich and pigmented!
280 Versatile: This is a soft baby pink. The pink is not too sheer, but I did notice that the colors tend to puddle in the wrinkles of the lips.

Overall:
I am totally digging "Chic", I can see myself wearing it all the time when September rolls around. As I've mentioned previously, I love the coverage and color intensity of the Dior Addict Fluid Sticks but I'm not sure I love the texture. They feel a bit sticky compared to most glosses on the market these days and my lips always end up a bit dry after the shine wears off.

Availability:
Dior Fall 2015 Collection is available in stores starting August 2015.
