Dior Bonne Ave

Dior Bonne Ave 986 Addict Extreme Lipstick ($31) is one of two limited edition shades of lipstick releasing with the Dior Mystic Metallics Collection for Fall 2013.

Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick seems to get better with age as each year it seems like the formula improves. It’s one my favorite lipstick formulas because it’s soft, glossy, and provides truly opaque color.

If you crave vampy plum shades for your Fall looks I know you’re going to adore the look of Dior Bonne Ave 986 Addict Extreme Lipstick.

Dior Bonne Ave 986 Addict Extreme Lipstick is a rich shade of berry plum. On my lips it goes a bit vampy so the shade has that perfect touch for evening looks. The formula has a soft, easy glide across lips with a hydrating, lightweight texture and a high glossy shine. The color is truly opaque and applies as such on a single swipe with pigmentation only getting even more richer and deeper when built.

Bonne Ave is the perfect companion shade to a smoky eye or a nude natural one like I did below.

The color, the formula, and the overall lipstick experience is incredible with Addict Extra Lipstick so it’s well worth the $31 price tag.

It’s only available for a limited time so best get it before it disappears.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

  • Miss D

    Lovely shade on you Muse! Also, I really like your blouse and vest(?). In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been really into your outfits lately- ha! ๐Ÿ™‚

      lol thanks Miss D ๐Ÿ˜€ <3! I typically don't dress when I do an FOTD, tend to do my makeup and proceed to dress after so you typically see me in a tshirt or something! I find it funny you even noticed and flattered ;-D

    Muse, have to agree, you’re killing me! But I think this is the color I’ve been looking for. I liked the new Berry by Miss Bobbi B you reviewed recently but I think tbis has the plum in it I was looking for, new fall lippie. My lips are very pale, so it should not look as deep as it does on you. Alwsys thank you Muse.

    • the Muse

      yay happy to hear it adele you’re most welcome I hope you love it ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi Muse, I received my order this week and I love tnis color. I ordered 2 tubes. I’m surprised how well it stays on. Yes it leaves lipstick on your coffee cup, but it does not disappear. If this is a limited edition I might have to order another one (or 2). It really is a beautiful color. I enjoy your reviews Muse. I look forward to reading each new one. I’m glad I found your site a couple months ago.
