I picked up this product after seeing it in a fellow beauty blogger’s yearly favorites. I wasn’t really sure what to expect but this product is PERFECT for me.
I typically wear something simple like Vaseline on my lips to work (I love the creme brûlée and rosy pink versions). Every time that I try to wear lipstick – the color comes off once I’ve had my morning cup of coffee in the car and then I arrive at work with either no product left on my lips – or messed up product on my lips (and a stained coffee mug). I do love the Revlon Matte Lip Balm in Honey and I keep this in my purse when I want to add a little color. However, when my lips are chapped – this product does not look that great applied on top because it is not moisturizing or glossy.
Enter the Dior Addict Lip Glow in Pink. This product feels amazing on the lips – very moisturizing. I applied this to half of my mouth at first and it makes both a huge difference and a subtle difference at the same time. It makes a huge difference in that it completely brings my lips to life – it adds a slight color as well as a glossy finish. It made my lips look more healthy, plump and moisturized. It makes a subtle difference in that the color is not crazy. It is one of those “high tech” lip products that reacts to your body’s chemistry and creates a unique color for each person. I find that the lip color it gives me is noticeably brighter than my natural lip color but still compliments my skin tone really well.
I didn’t even realize this when purchasing it, but this product also contains SPF 10 which is great for protecting your lips. I also love that this product isn’t sticky feeling and I can easily apply it without looking in the mirror – it’s pretty fool proof. I am super weird about drinking anything with lip products on – for some reason, the “lipstick stain” that inevitably ends up on my drinking glass GROSSES ME OUT! I know that’s weird but it does. This product leaves a less noticeable clear stain, which is much better in my opinion. I plan on buying a second one of these so that I can keep one in my vanity and one in my purse at all times! I absolutely love the pink color but would love to hear if y’all have tried any of the other shades (lilac and coral).
If you don’t have this product – you need to go out and buy it RIGHT NOW. I have no doubt this is going to be my new holy grail everyday lip product.
