It has only taken 48 hours for me to fall head-over-heels in love with the new Dior Fluid Stick. Whilst the promises Dior offers with the new lip hybrid seem ‘too good to be true’, this is truly a beauty innovation & unlike anything I have ever used before. The wax has been removed, and replaced with water creating mega-hold and highly pigmented shine….and it looks (and feels!) amazing on the lips.
The beautiful packaging tricks you into believing you are holding a lipstick, but the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ heart shaped lip wand signals otherwise. This little wand eliminates the need for lip liner, as it delivers precise application, saving you a couple of pennies (to put towards another)
It slicks on like a gloss, and then you feel the lip stain setting underneath. A couple of drinks and snacks later, and whilst the super glossy ‘pop’ may have disappeared only slightly, the amazing colour is still holding on. My personal best is 8 hours.
My primary concern was the ‘dry lip’ effect I have experienced with so many ‘stay put’ lip colours. My lips sacrifice a week of Sugar Lip Therapy before I can reapply *anything*, for just one wear, meaning I can’t wear anything else. The formula is moisturising, and hydrating. After melting away with Cleansing Gel & applying a little balm before bed, I’m ready for the magic all over again.
Because these are so highly pigmented, Dior really deliver ‘wow’ colours with the Fluid Stick. My favourite, and pictured, is ‘Artifice’ – a summery, coral colour. ‘Kiss Me’, a baby pink, and ‘Whisper Beige’, a soft nude, may be for those looking for everyday wear.
This is already a ‘make up essential’.
