What THEY say: A made-to-measure lip balm that beautifies and durably enhances the lips’ natural color. 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.

Sounds fancy pants 'eh?

Dior Lip Glow. What can I say. It's a favourite, one that I'll repurchase. I first found this by someone posting it on Instagram. The packaging got me first, beautiful pretty pink! I think it's a little bit retro, a lot luxe.

The lovely packaging.

One of the reasons that I really love this product is because it is so moisturising. The other, the smell! It is a bit big to pop in a pocket {but I have}.
Some say that the 'colour changing' should be left in the 80's, but I really like this. I can do a smoky eye and have this on my lips as I know that it's not going to be overpowering. It leaves a really nice sheen, not gloss like and not sticky.

I asked the lovely Anissa what she thought of Lip Glow and she reiterated exactly what I've said - Smells good, tastes good and it's a pretty colour.

So, if you want to drop ~ $50AUD on a balm, this is one that I would try.

A repurchase for both of us.


Be kind.
