Dior Fall 2016 Skyline Collection | Dior Addict Lipsticks: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links and the products featured were provided for review.
Inspired by the iconic Eiffel Tower, the Dior Fall 2016 Skyline Collection reintroduces several shades of the beloved Dior Addict Lipsticks ($43 CAD). To see some swatches of these beautiful shades, click........
Dior Addict Lipsticks
The Dior Addicts come in a shiny silver lipstick tube. The cap is made of a double-layered plastic with a beautiful multi-colored sheen. The "Dior" logo is embedded in silver along one side of the cap and the bottoms of the lipsticks have the iconic knob design. The lipsticks are embedded with a "CD" core in a contrasting color but after one use the color distinction becomes pretty muddled.

All four Fall 2016 Dior Addict shades come from the pre-existing range, so they are not limited edition. The Dior Addict lipsticks feature a very slick and moisturizing formulation. The pigmentation can be quite sheer depending on the shade, making these more similar to tinted balms. The wear is a tad short, due to the slick and non-clingy texture.

Too Much: Soft sheer red, this shade can be built to a more pigmented red.
Urban: This is a barely-there shimmery cream nude.
Fusion: Very sheer orange-red.
Black Tie: Beautiful deep cherry red. This shade looks almost black in the tube but when applied it's quite a lovely and vampy berry-red.
