An Accidental Haul – Part 1: Dior Addict Extreme in Diablotine Extreme
A few weeks ago, I had what I call an ‘accidental haul’. If you’ve never experienced this kind of haul, let me describe it for you. It’s when you find yourself wandering around the makeup aisles, see something that catches your eye and you swear you won’t buy it. But when you swatch it, it’s game over. Swipe, swipe goes the debit card!
That is precisely what happened to me on that fateful day. I only meant to take a peek at what was new at the Dior and Chanel makeup counters. Consider it blog research. After all, it had been over six months since I visited these counters so I didn’t think it could hurt. I didn’t need any new lipsticks.
Who was I kidding?
Three lipsticks later….
At the Dior counter, my downfall was the Dior Addict Extremes. I had read about these a bit on some blogs and was intrigued. I gravitated towards a lighter pink shade but the sales associate suggested I try Diablotine Extreme. She said it would look amazing with my complexion. Why the hell not, I thought. And there you have it. Another new lipstick for mama.
Diablotine is a coral red but it’s not an in your face kind of red. It is the perfect pop of colour. I just love how it brightens my complexion. The texture of this is amazing — smooth and moisturizing. As an ‘Extreme’, it has more pigmentation than the traditional Dior Addicts, which I am also a fan of.
Priced over $30 Canadian, this is a splurge but a worthy one in my opinion.
Stay tuned for my next installment of my Accidental Haul featuring Chanel.
When was the last time you had an accidental haul?
