Dior Addict Lipstick 864 Couture Swatch and Short Review

If you were following my earlier posts this week, you’ve seen my reviews and swatches of the new Dior Addict Lipstick 963 Red Carpet and 465 Singuliere. They’re quite lovely, aren’t they? Not exactly your shade? Want something that’s not completely matte? Maybe today you’ll find the color you’re looking for. Because I am in love with it, 864 Couture.

Chic pearlescent packaging. If you angle the case right, you’ll see the color changes from blue to purple with the top part close to yellow. It’s really fun to look at. I wish the camera could catch the rainbow effect.

Dior Addict Lipstick 864 COUTURE. Made in France · 75008 Paris Parfums Christian Dior

It was described as “A vibrant cherry pink, the perfection and daring of a pure creation“.

It does look like a reddish cherry color in the tube, but with shimmers! This is something different from Red Carpet and Singuliere. I’m excited.

Tissue swatch. I don’t see much shimmer, do you?

Swatch again on the back of my hand. It feels creamy and glides on smoothly, but still no shimmer.

Though moving my hand into the sunlight, ha… there it is! Now I see the beautiful pink, silver and blue particles. They’re so fine and not in large amount, that’s why it’s hard to see.

Lip swatch in natural lighting. I think my hand is more yellow toned so the color turned a bit redder (picture above) than it looks on my lips (picture below). Different skin tones will have different effects with this lipstick. I think both colors are pretty though.

Lip swatch in sunlight. The fine shimmers definitely reflect some sunlight into the camera so it looks more shiny. It’s still in the subtle category.

What I like the most about Couture is that it actually adds volume to my lips. The fine shimmers not only give me shine, it also make my lips plumped.

Please read Related Posts for more photos and reviews for more Dior Addict Lipsticks. The review below is only for this specific shade 864 Couture.

– The coverage is light to medium and the color is buildable. With one swipe, you get a subtle hint of color on the lips. But if you swipe some more, it turns to a more intense cherry pink that’s great for night time.
– It has the perfect balance of color and shine. The fine shimmers are sophisticated but not overly loaded. The finish is glossy and high sheen which adds a nice volume to the lips.
– The staying power is about 4 to 5 hours, a little longer than Singuliere but less than Red Carpet.
