I really love lip gloss and have probably way too much of it. However, I always feel like my lips get dry and chapped too easily if they are left bare and unprotected. Plus, lip gloss tends to give you a more sheer coverage and doesn’t seem like as much of a commitment as full on lipstick, which is perfect for those of us that are into a lighter makeup situation. I like that lip gloss can be versatile enough for a fresh faced barely-there makeup look or a night out with smoky eyes. And while looking fabulous, it keeps your lips moisturized and healthy too. So, needless to say, I knew as soon as I saw the Dior Lip Glow that I would have to add it to my collection eventually. I feel pretty good that I held out this long until there was a vacancy in my collection.
Here’s what Dior has to say about Lip Glow:
A made-to-measure lip balm that beautifies and durably enhances the lips’ natural colour. A customised colour result : thanks to its Colour Reviver technology, Dior Addict Lip Glow reacts directly with the unique chemistry of each woman’s lips before releasing its colour ingredient. Lips seem revived from within, amazingly fresh, full and radiant. In addition, its formula enriched with wild mango and luffa cylindrica continuously protects and moisturises. A universal balm for all lips.
I would say that the Dior Addict Lip Glow is very similar to the theory behind the Dior Nail Glow, but for lips instead of your nails. It looks very sheer with a soft pink colour in the tube and sort of like the more upscale cousin of something like Chapstick. When I put it on it feels light and smooth, not at all clumpy or sticky, and it looks softly coloured – neither too bright nor too pale. It seems to really just enhance and highlight the natural colour of my lips, making them a bit more vibrant but not like I have anything on them really, just kind of shiny and healthy looking. I find the colour that it ends up being on my lips really flattering with my skin tone, especially for a fresh makeup look. Plus, it seems to keep my lips feeling very moisturized and healthy.
The other good thing is that it lasts quite some time, even with eating or drinking or lots of talking. For instance, on Saturday morning I applied some Lip Glow and then went shopping and ran some errands but still could feel and see it on my lips at least four hours later, even after drinking. I was pretty impressed because most of the time lip gloss evaporates when you drink something or just melts away after a couple of hours anyway (or maybe just one, depending). After wearing it for a couple of days, I have noticed that my lips have felt smoother and softer too.
I’m totally hooked! I am a Dior Addict. I love the Nail Glow and now I love the Lip Glow too. I love the natural, healthy, polished look and these products are perfect for that. This is the perfect lip colour/gloss for spring and summer because of its light texture, incredible shine, and natural colour. It will allow you to have that fresh look that is so right for this time of year. I’m positive that this will now have a permanent place in my collection of lip gloss. Honestly, I like it so much that I have been thinking I might get a second tube of it to keep in my purse so I won’t be without it.
I bought my Lip Glow at FeelUnique.com, however, you can find it anywhere they sell Dior cosmetics. At FeelUnique it is £22.50, which seems to be the price everywhere I looked – Boots, John Lewis, Debenhams, and Harrods – except Amazon where it was about a pound higher. So, really, wherever you buy your other cosmetics you can probably get this too, as long as they sell Dior cosmetics.
