Today in the mail I received my recent Sephora haul. Inside was Christian Dior Addict Lip Glow. I read online and saw on YouTube so many rave reviews about this product. The raves went on and on about how great they make your lips look and how the color will be your own personal color, your mother nature made color.
If there was ever a mother nature made lip color, I am not fond of mine. When you view the pictures attached to this post you will see that Dior’s Lip Glow does work. It is not a gimmick product. However, the color your body generates you may not like as in my case.
For me it looks like a sheer, pink tinted lip gloss. I own several of these colors. You can still see my naturally lined lips (which I have a love hate relationship with from time to time) through it. Side Note: ABC World News is showing a delightful chocolate cake on television and I’m now hungry. After this I think I’ll have a snack. Oh they are now playing the “World News Polka” song. I love that song. Now I want to dance and eat. If I didn’t have a complainer, under neighbor I would fill that craving as well. OK back to the Addict Lip Glow review and not the food and dance addict review... While it was on my lips I asked my mate if he liked the lip color.
“I thought it was your natural lips.”
“Um…no. I put on some stuff that is supposed to take your body’s chemistry, maybe heat or something and generate your body’s natural lip shade. Well, the color, in short, is body generated.”
“Oh. It looks like your own lip color to me but with gloss.”
Dior’s Addict Lip Glow has a faint cinnamon smell. It would only be bothersome if you are not fond of cinnamon. It is also not sticky which is great if you are not a fan of having sticky lips. Containing and SPF of 10 Lip Glow will make your lips feel wonderfully creamy. That is fantastic.
Overall, for me, the $28 is too pricey when I stack up the benefits, even more so when I can achieve a similar if not exact color with a cheaper product. In the pictures attached to this post you will see my example of Sephora’s “Rosy Glow” lip gloss that is close to the color Dior’s Lip Glow gave me. I understand I am writing about Christian Dior. I understand the legacy of the brand name. Despite not having a “wow” experience like the others I have not decided if I will keep it. The novelty I am afraid, for me will be short lived.
