Okay, a little disclaimer on this one. I love Dior. I haven’t found a product by them that I haven’t liked so far. So this review of Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Awakening Lip Balm might seem like I’m being biased for some reason. I’m not. I just love their products.
I was first introduced to Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Awakening Lip Balm by my friend, Missy, while we were out having lunch one day. Now, I’m usually skeptical of products that promise to enhance your natural lip color. These lip glosses usually either a) don’t do anything for me or b) turn a ghastly shade of ’80s pink.
However, Missy insisted this was a great product, and I had recently read about it in Glamour magazine, so I decided to give it a go. The packaging is elegant, distinctly Dior, and I decided to get the classic pink color as opposed to the coral or lilac. To be honest, I’m not entirely sure if I was aware that the coral or lilac was available when I first purchased the gloss.
To my surprise and delight, Dior Addict Lip Glow works just as it promises. I have a very pale lip color to begin with, and the gloss adds just a hint of color. It’s perfect for days where I don’t wear much makeup, or when I’m doing a smoky eye and need just a hint of color on my lips. I really envy the woman who have lovely, naturally berry-colored lips. If I don’t wear some sort of color on my lips, I tend to look sickly.
Dior Addict Lip Glow moisturizes as well, which is nice because I have a nervous habit of biting my lips. I end up in a state of perpetually chapped lips, which is not pleasant, and requires lots of moisturizing. Matte lips are usually a no-go for me. Lip scrubs are my friend. But the Lip Glow has become a staple in my purse. I carry it with me wherever I go for a quick perk-up.
Cost and Where to Buy
Dior Addict Lip Glow can be found on the Dior website for $33.00. You can also get it at Sephora for $33.00. I know it sounds like a lot for lip gloss, but I’ve had mine forever and it’s still kickin’. eBay doesn’t have it for much less, just in case that’s tempting.
I would give Dior Addict Lip Glow a 9 out of 10. I’m only deducting for price on this one, because $33.00 does seem like a lot for lip gloss. But try it, you won’t regret it. Sometimes spending a little more on cosmetics is worth it, in my experience.
