Your lips but better : Dior Lip Glow

I truly did not know I’d be writing about this item one day. It was a gift to myself. I’ve always been curious about Dior Lip Glow. First, the packaging, though not necessarily what I’m usually into, really grabbed my attention. It looks like a super chic beauty weapon. So one day, I felt like treating myself and thought, it’d be really cool to have the Dior Lip Glow as a fancy lip balm of choice in my bag. I was kinda picturing myself pulling it out of my bag on the train or something, and instantly improve my day basically. You know what I mean? ANYWAY. I wasn’t that into it at first…

It smells minty which I don’t like, and when I first got it, I found that it really did nothing for my lips. I did not like the quite thick texture, it would clink to the dry patches on my lips, and the shade was too pink for my liking. I believe the original shade (01 Pink) gets deeper or lighter depending on the PH of the lips. But, recently, Dior launched lots of new Lip Glow colors. It was all over the internet, and made me want to try mine again.

One morning, after doing a simple base, and a bit of pink blush, I felt like something was missing, applied two layers of Dior Lip Glow, and utterly fell in love with it. I now love the balmy texture.It gives the loveliest glow to the lips. The shade is a sheer flamboyant pink with a good lasting power. It definitely plumps up the lips as well. The only thing to keep in mind is that it leaves a light stain on the lips, so do make sure they are exfoliated and hydrated beforehand, otherwise the stain might be uneven.

My tip : I have used a cotton bud to dig into the actual lipstick tube and really use this thing up, because when the you think it’s finished, there’s actually loads left in it. It’s quite a pricy item, and it’s gorgeous so give it a go, it’ll be worth it!

I would for sure repurchase it. Honestly one of the best lip balm/tinted gloss I’ve ever tried. Have you ever tried it ? I might purchase a new one soon! They’ve also released a matte version of the Lip Glow, oh my…
