You Are Cordially Invited to the Lavish Dior Spring Ball. Dress Code: Dior Spring Ball Addict Extreme & Vernis

Dior Spring Ball Addict Extreme, Vernis FOTD

A while ago I introduced the new Dior Addict Glosses and Vernis to you, but little did I know things would only get better! In my excitement I ignored the fact that the four star shades, including Spring Ball, PrincessDélice, and Diablotine would also be available as both Addict Lipsticks and Addict Extremes! When they finally hit the shelves here about a week and a half ago, I naturally had to swatch them all (I put the swatch photo on the Facebook page). I picked up Spring Ball Addict Extreme, and now I have yet another matchy matchy lips and tips pair to show you!

Dior Spring Ball Addict Extreme, Vernis

According to Dior, the shade Spring Ball is inspired by the light and delicate radiance of Mr. Dior’s ball gowns. It is described as a soft and tender nude, but for me it’s much more than one!

Most of you might be familiar with the packaging of Dior Addict Extreme: It is identical to Dior Addict Lipsticks except for the signature navy blue color. The formula has a very faint vanilla scent, but I can’t smell it unless I really shove my nose right in front of the lipstick. It is not the sticky, gooey, and artificial type of vanilla either, so it shouldn’t be a problem.

Dior Spring Ball Addict Extreme review

Spring Ball Addict Extreme is a soft warm pink with a dash of coral on me. True to my experience with Addict Extremes, Spring Ball has a slick, smooth, lightweight formula that packs a glossy sheen and enough pigment. The coverage is almost opaque, but you will see some translucency that lingers. It is also hydrating enough to keep my lips soft and smooth till the end of the day!

What I find the most interesting about Addict Extremes is the fact that they stain a little, and with that stain you can gradually build the color up throughout the day. Being a lighter shade, Spring Ball wears a bit shorter than average compared with more vibrant Addict Extremes on me (shades like Riviera and Plaza could last 4.5 hours for me). I would put the wear time around 3.5 hours, but do note that the more times you reapply, the more strongly it stains, so at the end the color stays around for longer.

Here is how Spring Ball swatches on me. Left: one swipe. Right: built up

A couple more photos with Spring Ball on me!

Dior Spring Ball Addict Extreme FOTD

I’ve been wearing Spring Ball Vernis like nothing else exists, so I happily wore both the other day! For the rest of my face, I layered Edward Bess Cosmic Bliss and Burberry Pale Barley over Laura Mercier Sand Glow Caviar Stick Eye Colour for my eyes, and used Estee Lauder Peach Passion on my cheeks. Both the eyeshadow combo and cheek color lasted well throughout a long day!

Bottom line: I love the versatility of Dior Spring Ball Addict Extreme. While it is toned-down enough for me to wear with just my brows done, the dash of coral in there jazzes it up enough for it not to be in the nude or even my-lips-but-better category. It requires a couple of reapplications a day, but the color lasts better and becomes more vibrant with each reapplication. If you are not sure about coral, Dior Spring Ball Addict Extreme could be your first baby step. Even a coral veteran like myself could truly appreciate its easygoing beauty!

Have you checked out the new Dior Addict Glosses, Vernis, and Addict/Addict Extreme Lipsticks? Did you pick anything up?

  • http://www.qtplace.com Mattania

    Love the colors!! looks good on you :)

    • Sunny

      Thanks Mattania! I normally never go for the lightest shade in any line-up, but after swatching everything Spring Ball was the shade that really caught my eye!

  • http://kissandmakeupsbeautyblog.wordpress.com/ Kiss & Make-up

    Gorgrous! Those colors look like they were made for you.

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks! That’s a really nice compliment :)

      • http://kissandmakeupsbeautyblog.wordpress.com/ Kiss & Make-up

        I wonder when Dior is going to make something specially for me… ;-)

  • http://aucupariabrumalis.wordpress.com Claire

    ahh, spring ball :D I love the nail polish so much, such a sparkly beauty, I passed on the lipstick but the colour is beautiful as well *sigh* too many pretty things this year from dior, can’t wait for their summer collex to come :D love the last pic Sunny >.<

    • Sunny

      Thanks Claire! I know! Dior has been ON FIRE since 2012 and it’s just bad news for my wallet! The summer collection is rolling out here soon (I think one chain store already has it but I haven’t had time to check yet). Pretty sure Samba will come home with me, and I’ve been eyeing Coral Glow even though I don’t even bronze!

    Dior lipsticks always have a gorgeous packaging :)

    • Sunny

      I never used to pay attention to packaging, but since lipsticks are something you could take out in public, it’s always nice to have pretty ones ;)

  • http://www.nailsandcupcakes.com Isabelle

    Very pretty & very ‘you’, Sunny! This is probably one of those things your boyfriend asked you why you were buying extra things? Don’t listen to him though, you clearly had to get this one as it suits you well ;)

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Isabelle! He didn’t nag about this because it didn’t come in the mail. He has no idea that this girl is yet another lipstick richer haha

  • http://www.aprettybeautifullife.be Diana

    Ieeee ,those are gorgeous colors! Totally my thing. They look absolutely lovely on you, Sunny!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Diana! I’m sure Spring Ball will look great on you as well! You should give it a little swatch next time you’re in the store :)

  • http://www.bellachique.be Teri

    This will probably be my next addict extreme, it’s something I don’t have yet! Love it a lot on you and I loooove the pigmentation of it!

    • Sunny

      Yaay excellent! So happy there are finally some new shades! I hope they’ll continue to expand the line!

  • http://icarias.blogspot.ca Icaria

    Oh nooo! I love both! Stunning on you!

    • Sunny

      Haha try these on and see how they work for you! Corals tend to be very easy to work with on my skin tone :)

  • Dominique

    It’s a lovely shade. The Dior Addict Extreme are really very good, the texture is just perfect.

    • Sunny

      Thanks, Dominique! I like how they pack more pigment, yet they remain glossy (not as glossy as Addict but still pretty glossy)!

      • Dominique

        Yes absolutely, that’s what makes them so pretty and long-wearing :) great formula. The Dior Addict are pretty too, I have few but I love them too.

  • http://bronzerbunny.com Joyce (bronzerbunny)

    OHH this looks so pretty on you! maybe this will have to be my first dior lipstick :)

    • Sunny

      Thanks Joyce! This is a shade that I think you will appreciate. I can wear it with nothing else but my brows done, and it doesn’t seem strange!

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    Pretty pretty! I don’t know which Addict Extreme to choose, so I’ve never bought one, hahahahaha. I buy them for my mum sometimes though!

    • Sunny

      Haha oh wow your mom is a LUCKY mom! I know you’re not really into corals, but check Spring Ball out. It might change your mind about them!

  • http://beautycabby.com/ lyn

    The colours are so super pretty on you! I swatched the lipstick and it didn’t quite show up on me but the nail polish is really nice.

    • Sunny

      Hey Lyn, aww I’m so sorry to hear that! None of the Addict Lipsticks in this line shows up too well on me, but the Addict Extremes are pretty pigmented. I’ve been wearing this nail polish A LOT. I am not even exaggerating. I seem to be on this auto-pilot mode whenever I have to pick a shade for my manicure, and I just reach for Spring Ball!

  • http://mylucitedreams.com Taylor

    Spring ball! Another beauty! I do love it, I’m a bit crazy for the whole collection ;-)

    • Sunny

      Haha I know! So glad Dior finally added more shades to the Addict Extreme line! I hope they’ll keep coming!

  • http://memoiselle.com/ Meryl @ Memoiselle

    Sunny the pictures you snapped are soo pretty! The color makes your face look very fresh! I’ll definitely check this one out! :D

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Meryl! Don’t you love how a good lipstick instantly adds so much life to your face? You should definitely check it out!

  • http://miaka-mylife.blogspot.com Ruby

    This is a very sweet coral shade! Love it on you :)

    • Sunny

      Thanks Ruby! You’re so sweet!

  • http://wade-ashore.blogspot.com Caise

    what a pretty shade!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Caise! I’m unashamedly in love with it!

  • http://papayapieces.wordpress.com/2013/04/21/yet-again-i-was-a-little-bit-restless/ Sofia

    I love these coral shades! Last year I was looking for a coral nail polish just like that and didnt find it, so now voila, here it is!

    • Sunny

      Oh yay, glad to hear you have found your dream coral polish! Do check this out, Sofia!

  • http://www.chloeash.com Lily (@ChloeAsh)

    Very nice! This is definitely one of my favourite shades. I’ve been wearing them quite regularly the last few days :-)

    • Sunny

      It is most probably going to become a permanent resident in my purse. I like how easy it is to wear even when I have no other makeup on my face!

  • http://myfashiontrendencies.com Chris

    You look gorgeous Sunny! I’ll have to get this.

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Chris! Do take a look at the new Addict Extremes!

  • http://beautyreductionista.blogspot.ca/ Liz

    Trying to resist Spring Ball nail polish with everything that I’ve got. You’re not making it easy! :)

    Do you have Chanel Miami Peach? If you do, do they seem similar at all to you?

    • Sunny

      Aww sorry Liz, but I personally adore this shade!

      Sorry I don’t have that one, so I can’t compare. From what I can see Spring Ball seems to contain more shimmer though!

  • http://www.bakingbeauty.net Krystle(Baking Beauty)

    Your eyes look amazing! I’m a big Laura Mercier Fan, but I’ve never tried any of the caviar sticks.

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Krystle! If you like lazy makeup you should check out the Caviar Sticks! I like eyeshadow sticks more than cream shadows if that’s even possible!

  • http://www.cuteandmundane.com Dovey

    Hi Sunny, this is TOO pretty! Both peachy colors look so beautiful and fresh on you. Love :)

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Dovey! Spring Ball is a shade I think you will appreciate for sure as well!

  • http://www.LipstickRules.com MIchelle

    Sunny I think I need this lipstick too! Looks amazing on you.

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Michelle! I can’t get over how Diablotine looks on you (and that is why we end up spending so much more LOL)!
