Dior Addict Extreme Lasting Lipcolor Radiant Shine - Riviera and Dior Show Backstage Mascara

To wrap up my posts on Dior, I'd like to feature a post on the Dior Addict Extreme Lasting Lipcolor in Riviera [639] (3.5g, 0.12 oz; Retail, $30) and the Dior Show Backstage Mascara sample I received with my purchase.

Dior says,

Dior Addict fashion lipstick goes to the Extrême, with radiant colours, a perfect hold wet-look texture, and audacious, sophisticated Dior styles.

At the heart of this new soft, sensual texture lie 4 specialist waxes, acting in a targeted manner to correctly combine these extremes in a single formula. This veritable technical feat achieves perfect hold, comfort, and shine in an astonishingly fine film.

Dior Addict Extrême is available in 12 shades of pure radiant pigment, from nudes to the boldest shades, exploring all the facets of Dior  


A new style means a new dress code: the Dior Addict case plays on transparent, vibrant black -  black as in perfection, mystery and timelessness.

Here's a close-up of the shade as well as how the shade appears on my lips:

The Dior Show Backstage Mascara sample I received was a pleasant surprise (Retail, $25).  

Dior says,

Inspired by the runway and behind-the-scenes tricks, Diorshow Mascara gives lashes a triple-shot of glamour, leaving them luxuriously thick, lengthened and curved to the max. Its easy-to-use XXL brush is generously curved for maximum coverage, while its logo-stamped silver packaging makes it a fashion must-have for every handbag!

Here's a close-up of the mascara wand:

Here's a before and after (1 application) close-up shot:

Overall rating:  Booyah times 2! The lipstick offers some staying power and is a very smooth and satin formula.  The color is buildable.  The mascara did lengthen my lashes though I would prefer a smaller wand.

Have you tried any of the other Dior lipstick shades?  What are your thoughts on Dior mascara?
