First off, Plaza is truly pigmented. For such an emollient lipstick, the color is very potent and lasts quite long on the lips. I put this lipstick on this morning and by lunch, it was still very bright and didn't wear off in the middle of my lips like most lipsticks do. While I'm usually a bit weary of brighter pink lipsticks, I find Plaza very wearable for my skintone.
Plaza, swatched on my hand. It does not have shimmer although it may look like it in the picture. It is a true bright blue based pink color.
This is definitely a big winner for me. I'm very happy I purchased it even if I thought it was similar to the Dior Addict lipsticks. In my opinion, Plaza is more pigmented, and lasts longer than all my Dior Addict lipsticks. The formula is also non-drying, in my humble lips' opinion. It was very comfortable for me to wear and I find myself reaching out for it quite regularly. I'm so happy I picked this out! I'm also very tempted to try other shades from the Dior Addict Extreme line but not sure what color to pick - any suggestions from you guys? I was thinking Riviera, but after swatching it at Sephora, I wasn't too sure of the color of it - and it didn't seem as pigmented as my beloved Plaza.

... I built myself a lightbox! That's right, high quality product pictures are coming your way. Well, after I find suitable lighting. The current lights aren't cutting it unfortunately... I can't find the appropriate bulbs!
Hope your week has been swell! Mine was interspersed with shoe purchases, and therefore pretty good! :)
