I took a chance ordering this orange...yes orange lipstick. This is my first Dior Addict lipstick and I wanted something a little different. I knew the formula was sheer and I didn't have a shade anything like this in my collection so Dior Addict Lipstick in 545 Fire was my choice. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!! I hope all the Dior Addict lipsticks have a formula just like this because it's perfect. This is what I wanted the Chanel Rouge Coco Shines to be. Sheer, light on the lips, without feeling too creamy. I can apply it without a mirror and it last fairly well considering the sheer formula. It wears off evenly and leaves a bit of a stain. I find the Rouge Coco Shines have too much of a creamy slip to them for my liking and I don't like how they wear off. I love the weightless feel of the Dior Addict in Fire. I'm also incredibly pleased with the Laura Mercier Gel lip color but more on that later ;-) The only thing that would hold me back from purchasing another Dior Addict lipstick is the ridiculous packaging. I know it is supposed to look luxurious but frankly I find it over the top, too large and just plain gaudy.

Fire is orange. There is no other way to describe it. It doesn't have any visible shimmer but has a very glossy shine. It is sheer enough to let your natural lip colour tone down the orange to a beautiful shade. I didn't have full sun when I took these so it isn't capturing just how almost neon orange this lipstick is.
