After many years of eyeing this lip balm on the sidelines, reading a variety of bloggers rave, disagree and everything in between, I felt like I got the best of both pros and cons before I made the decision to buy this product. The push was essentially receiving a 10% birthday gift voucher from Fresh (fragrance and cosmetics) online.
Currently, this has become a part of my favourite lip balms for Autumn and going into Winter, which I will go into detail in an upcoming post. I believed there are 2 shades available in pink and coral. According to the sephora website, it claims that it is ‘formulated with color reviver technology, this silky lipstick reacts with the chemistry of your lips to create a special shade that will last all day.’ It also consists of SPF 10, which will keep your lips protected, as I often neglect my lips from the exposure of the sun. I do not own many lip products that contain SPF anything, but it is nice to have a few that do.
I found the swatch below to be difficult to photograph, since the lipstick contains a formula that reacts to your lips, the colour will obviously be different for everyone. Whenever I wear tinted lip products the colour appears that much more opaque as my lips are highly pigmented. So in this case, the tinted pink wears off as a lovely bright pink. It also leaves my lips a nice balmy-glossy finish that is not sticky, but keeps my lips well hydrated. After one application, the lip balm lasts a few hours with food and drink, until I would need to reapply again.
The Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Glow is by far my expensive lip balm. Surely there maybe dupes for this product somewhere, but I have not found one that is remotely similar. It is not a required necessity in my makeup collection, but since I wanted to try it and see for myself, I found this lip balm to be such a beautiful product and for what it is worth, the quality is amazing, but too bad for the price tag–it made a dent in my purse.
Have you tried this lip balm? Do you know of any dupes?
