The Coral Addict’s Picks: Dior Aventure Addict Extreme & Rieuse Addict Fluid Stick

Dior Rieuse Addict Fluid Stick, Aventure Addict Extreme

The concept of “too much coral” probably just doesn’t exist in my book. Since I enjoy the formulas of Dior Addict Fluid Stick and Dior Addict Extreme a lot, I picked up two shades from the recent release: Dior Aventure Addict Extreme and Dior Rieuse Addict Fluid Stick. Long story short, I foresee both of them becoming shades that I reach for often!

Dior Aventure Addict Extreme 551

You know the drill with Dior Addict Extreme. It is pretty much my sweet spot among the handful of Dior lipstick formulas in existence. I like how it packs just enough pigment without being “in-your-face,” and the finish is neither too matte nor too shiny. It is something that I am comfortable with on a daily basis. If you build up on the stain, you will end up with a very vibrant lip color by the end of the day!

Aventure Addict Extreme (551) is your typical Addict Extreme. This pink-leaning coral, but not by much. In a way, it is very close to being a “true coral” if there were one. It is a bit more vibrant than my usual go-to, but still a shade that I can sport with ease even if I have minimum makeup elsewhere. It wears for 4-5 hours on me with a stain, and it feels nicely hydrating on the lips. If I build up on that stain, it becomes pretty much indestructible!

Here is how Aventure Addict Extreme swatches. Left: one pass. Right: built up.

Here is a closeup of how it looks on my lips. Do note that this is the first application, so it might seem tamer!

Aventure deserves a place in my hand bag next to Spring Ball Addict Extreme from last year!

Dior Rieuse Addict Fluid Stick (373)

I wasn’t kidding when I said Dior Addict Fluid Stick is my new lippie obsession: lo and behold, I had to grab Rieuse (373) as well!

Dior Rieuse review

If I were to sum up my original review, I appreciate the formula for being glossy, pigmented, long-wearing, as well as hydrating. I can feel a little something on my lips, but it doesn’t bother me.

Dior Rieuse (373) closeup

Rieuse is a peachy pink coral. On my skin tone, it is again a very easy-to-wear shade that I don’t have to try too hard to pair at all. Since Rieuse is a lighter shade, it wears for 5 hours on me (with multiple drinks). A meal would finish it off, and it doesn’t stain.

Are you a fan of either Dior Addict Extreme or Dior Addict Fluid Stick?

    you broke my heart at rieuse doesn’t stain </3 by building up aventure, do you mean multiple passes? or after several reapplications, the stain becomes indestructible?

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Aww sorry! It does last 4-5 hours though! I think the lighter Addict Fluid Sticks don’t stain.

      • Chia-Yi Liu

        sadly i feel like that may be the case across the board when it comes to these types of formulations. i guess i’ll have to live with the fact that i need to reapply. lazy i know!

        • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          I pretty much only reapply after a meal. If a formula holds up after drinks and snacks, we’d be all buddy buddy 😉

  • expatmuaddict

    I need to get those Clinique blushers

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha try one. Just one! It’s fun :)

  • Divya

    These are exactly the colours i’d have picked… eyes closed!
    Look lovely on you!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Divya! Glad to hear you’re a fellow coral fiend!

  • Bella

    Such a pretty coral look!! I got Rieuse after seeing the Beauty Lookbook swatches…such a marketing victim LOL! (#notsorry).

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Bella! How are you liking Rieuse?

  • Birkie Birkster

    both look amazing on you. I’m sure gonna try Rieuse as it looks so gorgeously plumping in a soft and non-optrusive manner

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Birkie! I hope you’ll like it as much as I do! It’s a great everyday shade with some character.

  • 38noodles

    They look lovely on you! I’m getting the most use out of Rieuse out of my little collection of these fluid sticks. It’s a great slap-em-on shade that is easy to pair and wear. Tried very hard to avoid both of the Addict line of lippies since I prefer the Rouge Diors, but I did pick up Aventure as well, and am loving it :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, girl! I’m glad to hear you’re getting a lot of use out of Rieuse! And yesss isn’t Aventure adorable? I’ve been wearing it for several days in a row!

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Yeah, too much coral, that is impossible :-) These both look soooooo pretty!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha exactly! Thanks, Melissa!

  • Georgie

    I have Rieuse and I wear 2 coats of it which makes it super bright! There are so many other fluid stick I want to try too

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Georgie, oh I haven’t tried to layer any of the Fluid Sticks I own! Now I’m going to give it a go!

  • anna_sterretje

    the pink coral color is very very pretty

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Anna! You should take a good look at the collection :)

  • Lily

    Erm… I have yet to go to a Dior counter since that last comment on Dior >_< Isn't it crazy? I mean, I'd run there a few months ago. Ugh, guess I'm still not myself yet. LOL!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha it’s OK! Only the new Addict Lipsticks and Addict Extremes are limited edition, so you can take your time :)

  • SprinklesOnACupcake

    Very pretty colors, and I love the Fluid Sticks, they are so shiny!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Petra! I like how they last well and don’t migrate around despite the shiny finish :)

  • Liz

    Very pretty and summery!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Liz! Here at Mostly Sunny, coral season is ALL YEAR ROUND :p

  • fancie

    Coral is definitely your color! I love the way these look on you!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Fancie! They sit pretty well on my skin tone, so I can be a bit careless about the rest of the makeup I’m wearing 😉

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Love the Aventure Addict Extreme! Not so crazy about the fluid stick as you know lol. But they both look lovely on you Sunny!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Tracy! I’ve been wearing Aventure for several days in a row now! It’s on its way to become my next Spring Ball Addict Extreme (though admittedly it’s bolder)!

  • Larie

    I like the colors, but of course they are coral 😉

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha yeah :p Can’t pretend I don’t have a real soft spot for corals!

  • Icaria

    Huh? You like coral? 😀 I’m still on the fence about the Fluid Stick but Aventure just might follow me home, soon! :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Oh, is that news to you? :p

      I’ve been wearing Aventure for several days in a row! Not getting tired of it at all :)

  • Syirael


    I just went in and swatched all the fluid sticks yesterday! They’re here! Aside from kind of wanting 3/4 of them, I was so pleased with all the lovely corals – including this one!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Syl! Yup I read your post earlier today! Aside from the really nude/beige ones, I think I’ll get along well with the rest of them :)

  • Sofia

    I’m loving both colours!!! At the moment I only have some too bright and “dark” corals (with the exception of a lip gloss) so that means I must check out a more demure one, like these for example :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sofia, I know that problem! Naturally I love bright corals as well, but I need to pair them right and be in the mood. These? I can put them on just like that :)

  • Lena L

    Rieuse looks delicious on you!
    Probably not this very color, but I’m looking forward to get more Fluid Stick and Dior Addict lipstick. They are my current favorites! :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Lena! So glad to hear you’re a fellow Dior addict 😉

  • rachlovespenguins

    I so NEED to get to a Dior counter! Dear life, please cooperate with me here. Please. I need the pretty. Sincerely, Dior-deprived me.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha keep me posted, Rach! I hope this weekend is THE weekend! xx

  • Judith

    I don’t think you can have too much of a color you really like! I’m also a bit of a broken CD myself with all my pale milky pinks!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha oh but those look great on you!

  • Jennifer Monforton

    Such pretty shades for Summer! Both look great on you :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Jennifer! Chez Mostly Sunny, coral season is year round 😉

  • Silke

    What a great lipstick! I’m still looking for that perfect coral shade, must try this one out I think!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Silke, YES you should take a look at both of them! I hope you’ll find your perfect coral soon!

  • Nikki P.

    “Too much coral” doesn’t exist in mine either. LOL

    Great picks Sunny! :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Nikki!

      No, there is NO such thing as too much coral :p

  • Pinks (@naturelbellefemme)

    Loved the review and clear swatches. I must try these soon.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks! I hope you’ll find something to love in this collection (it’s not hard)!

  • Tiffany

    You look so pretty, Sunny! I’m still undecided as to whether or not I’ll end up trying the Addict Fluid Sticks at some point. I really want to swatch them first! Rieuse looks like a gorgeous shade.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Tiffany! Rieuse is a very “you” shade! You should look into it :)

  • fiona furtado

    Such pretty colors and you look so beautiful. I have been waiting to get my hands on dior fluid stick but they just refuse to reach India anytime soon:(

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Fiona! I hope you’ll get them soon! I wear mine often :)

      • fiona furtado

        I hope so too… And it looks nice on you
