I have been using Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviving Lip Balm for many years now, and their tinted lip balm has definitely become a staple in my make-up pouch. Although Dior has added new colours along with different finishes to their line, I still enjoy the coral and berry shades the most as they look most natural for my yellow based light/medium skin tone.
The must-have universal balm from Dior Backstage, now unveiling two new finishes: Matte and Holographic, alongside the original Glow. Inspired by the expert techniques of the Dior Backstage, Lip Glow is the first color reviver balm by Dior combining the comfort of a balm with a natural flush of custom color.
Original Glow, The iconic finish
Born backstage and loved by Dior make-up artists for its custom rosy tint effect and subtle shine.
Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviving Lip Balm goes on smooth and very easily without giving too much artificial scent or flavour which I'm often put off by. It's hydrating compared to other tinted lip balms on the market, but I have to use other non-tinted lip balm first underneath the Dior one especially during the cold days. Other than in Winter, I've had no problems using it by itself throughout the day, and I haven't experienced any chapped lips.
As I've already mentioned in my posts, I have very sensitive skin, but Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviving Lip Balms has never given me any irritations including cold sores. Although they go on pretty much sheer with a hint of colour, you can actually build up the intensity by layering a few more. It still won't give that lipstick or lip stain finish, but you can achieve a pop of colour without looking too done. The staying power isn't very long as those lip balms aren't lipsticks, so you will need to reapply throughout the day just like how you would normally do with your regular lip balm.
When I want to extend the longevity of the colour though, I like to use a lipstick underneath and blot off with tissue paper, then repeat several times again before applying the tinted lip balms. I quite often do this way as I'm personally not a huge fan of using a gloss as I find it too sticky and too glossy, and Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviving Lip Balms gives just the right hydrated plumped look in a more subtle way. Whether you just stepped into make-up or are not fancy of bold lip finish in general, you will simply enjoy those Dior lip balms. Great as a gift too! :).
