New Dior Addict Lacquer Sticks: Swatches and It Shades!
It seems Dior’s new Dior Addict Lacquer Sticks are the new lip accessory to have. It’s not just the genius design of the “edgy-girly” black tubes outlined in see-through jelly pink.
The formula marries the gloss and cushy comfort of the original Dior Addict lip range with new-generation pigment technology for higher pay-off. The surprising thing for me was that these actually lasted for a decent amount of time on the lips. The level of shine does obviously wear away after a few hours of talking and drinking, but the pigments for many of the stronger shades do a pretty good job of clinging on, to the point of needing a proper makeup remover to get them off at the end of the day.
The 4 “It” Shades are lip swatched above:
877 Turn Me Dior - red-fuchsia as seen on Jennifer Lawrence
684 Diabolo - neon doll pink
924 Sauvage - prune noir
550 Tease - fleshy peach-pink
All 18 shades shown here will be pre-launched from today (23 March) exclusively at the ION Orchard Dior Backstage Boutique, and available at the rest of the counters in Singapore from 1 April.
Out of place, out of space and time, wide awake Out of papers I am, not okay I am out my mind Outer space, that’s where I been goin’ To a place where, place where nobody knows Floating at a pace where now you see me now and now you don’t
I do not feel the fear of fallin, I wanna fly If it all goes well then I will But what if I don’t?
Ill be right where I was before But I’m not alone, you said take my hand And we go (and we go), and we go (and we go) And I hope that we don’t overdose Cause we don’t (cause we don’t) No we don’t (no we don’t) Ever know when we have had enough
We all laugh together, and mine transforms into an overwhelmed smile. I look to Ryke, but I can’t do anything but nod at him—you know those moments where you’re just so full you can barely breathe? So full of feelings you only hope to meet. They crash against me like freefalling. Like cliff diving and bungee jumping. Like screaming at the top of my lungs. Like one-hundred-and-fifty miles per hour. All with Ryke Meadows.
Okay but Sherlock’s drug addiction is relatable even to a non addict such as myself because it isn’t really just fighting drug addiction, is it? It’s so much more. It’s getting out of a cycle of mistakes. It’s getting up every day and mustering up the courage to fight everything INSIDE YOU that is pulling you back. The victory lies in the journey, not the end result. That’s what he’s trying so hard to tell everyone. The journey will continue for the rest of his life, for as long as he lives, and so the victory is in waking up and fighting the things that are inside him which are preventing him from being who he wants to be. The real victory lies in fighting your inner demons every single day. And that speaks to me on another level, because that isn’t simple at all, is it? That’s what everyone is striving for, but It. Is. Tough.
