Hello Pandas. Today I have something really special for you! A Dior Lip Balm!
This was a birthday present from my friend Ivy, and I have to say, she knows me well! I was so excited to get this little white bag! This is a very interesting product and I was so excited to try it out.
This is the Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Revive Balm ($31) and is a very sheer pink glossy balm housed in a gorgeous pink case. Dior says it is a "customized lip balm that enhances and embellishes the natural color of lips" This works with each person's unique chemistry to create a one of a kind flush.
It has wild mango and luffa cylindrica which are supposed to moisturize and cushion lips and make this long-lasting. It can also be used over any lip color to enhance it.
Products like this are such a treat! They are so luxurious, and even though this is a balm, it feels like so much more!
Even though you can see my camera and I, I just had to take a picture of every ounce of this packaging. So pretty.
Now, onto the product itself. Dior Lip Glow doesn't look like much, honestly. It almost looks like the jelly-ish L'Oreal balms. However, it applies like a hybrid gloss/lipstick instead of a balm and the color changing effect is immediate.
Here is one swipe of it in natural light and it doesn't look like much. I was starting to become saddened, but this is something that really only works its magic on lips.
There is a subtle shimmer to it that is much more pronounced on the swatches and not the lips. This does not wear for the "all day" claim that Dior insists upon, instead it hangs around for about 4 hours. It is sufficiently moisturizing, but I wouldn't say it will go as far as a traditional balm. The feel on the lips is slightly sticky at first, but it soon dissolves into an emollient shine. It truly is pretty, and easy!
This product made my bare lips look flawless! This is one simple swipe of the Lip Glow and it turned my more dusky pigmented lips into a pretty rose color instantly. It was so cool! My lips look hydrated and slightly plumper. This is a product that you can carry around with you and always know you will look polished but not too overdone with.
If you are a Dior fan, a fan of color-changing products, or are looking for a low-maintenance lip color, Lip Glow is for you!
Overall Quality: 9/10
Total: 43/50 = B = Pleased Panda
Honestly, the sheer expense of this for what it does hurt the overall score, but I still think it is a great product if you can afford it! Or as a treat!
Have you tried the Lip Glow?
