Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick Trio

Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick TrioChristian Dior has been keeping quiet about its duty-free exclusives recently, but a bit of research has revealed one of its latest offerings to the travel-retail market: the Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick Trio.

This one is tricky though, as it offers different colours based on the region the product is being sold in. Example: in  Germany’s airport shops, the set contains Dior’s moisturising lipstick formula in 536 (Lucky), 356 (Cherie Bow) and 667 (Avenue). However, on board Korean Air flights the shades change and only Lucky is in both sets – the other two shades are 336 (Saint Tropez) and 366 (Pink Icon). These variations obviously reflect local and regional best-sellers as these sets tend to go with colours that are popular where they are sold.

Prices are also slightly different, once again based on local retail prices. While the German duty-free stores sell the set for €74 (roughly $95), Korean Air prices the trio at a slightly cheaper €69 ($89). Considering these retail in the US for $30 each, the sets don’t represent much of a saving (and in the German case are actually more expensive) compared with buying the individual lipsticks. However, in the UK they are sold for £24 each (around $38 in today’s exchange rates), so you’d be pocketing quite a significant amount by getting the set.

  1. I’m so glad to see a new post on your blog! I used to travel quite a bit and indulged in quite a few duty free purchases. Your blog is so invaluable in directing me to the goodies in those shops. I did pick this up on Korean Air and these Dior Addict Extremes are lovely! I especially adore Lucky.
