I think I stumbled onto something in my last post. I bet I could do a whole series of "Oh, wow, I forgot I had this!" blog posts. So let's do it, shall we?
Today's post is about the Dior Addict Lip Glow, a color awakening lip balm.
I acquired this product last year when I attended a Dior makeup seminar held by makeup artist, Lauren Warner, at Macy's in Union Square. It was a fun two hour demonstration and I actually got to be one of the "models" for the class.
You weren't required to buy anything but anytime I go to some kind of a makeup event, I always feel obligated to buy *something*. Lauren used Lip Glow on me and I really liked it (and let's be honest, it's probably the most affordable item in their line-up). So I picked it up and took it home where it then got buried in my makeup stash. :-O During spring cleaning, the stash has recently been organized and I could no longer ignore this pretty product.
So how does Dior describe their "Color Awakening Lipbalm"?
A made-to-measure lip balm that beautifies and durably enhances the lips’ natural color. A customized color result : thanks to its Color Reviver technology, Dior Addict Lip Glow reacts directly with the unique chemistry of each woman’s lips before releasing its color ingredient. Lips seem revived from within, amazingly fresh, full and radiant. In addition, its SPF10 formula enriched with wild mango and luffa cylindrica continuously protects and moisturizes. A universal balm for all lips.At the basic level, it's a fancy looking lip balm. But it really does add some color to your lips. And no, it's not the bubble gum pink you would expect from the image - mine almost looks slightly coral-y. It still looks like your natural lips but *awakened* with an extra boost of color, which is perfect for me because I like to keep it simple for every day.
And how cute is the packaging??? That really might be the biggest selling point for me. It is so darling, it almost makes me feel like a princess! ;)
I mean, seriously, how cute is this???
Dior Addict Lip Glow retails for $29. Yes, a bit pricey for what is basically a lip balm but it really does "awaken" your natural lip color. And the super cute packaging is what secured the deal for me!
