Dior Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm Review & Photo of the Day



I'm sure many of you are enticed by the ever talented duo on YouTube known as Pixiwoo. It appears the Chapman sisters have the midas touch and any product they categorize as 'bloody good' we run to the stores and wipe out their stock. I am no different and I gobble up every tidbit of info they throw our way. After watching their videos I discover that I have made a list and the anticipation of running to the makeup counter the next morning seems almost unbearable.

This time was not any different as I find myself a couple of days ago at Sephora's asking a beauty consultant about a new product that I wanted to have a look at, the Dior Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm. At first glance it looks like a regular lip balm except it has a hefty $32.50 price tag! After I quietly mumble a curse word under my breath I approach the lip balm to have a closer look. It has no scent, no color and no need for it to make its way in to my purse and go home with me. My, my, how things can change with a swipe of color across your lips. Lorraine, the beauty consultant told me the day she was wearing it she sold 5 tubes of this stuff. This news causes me to raise my eyebrow. After careful disinfecting I try it on and the color turns pink and then more pink withing 15 seconds. Basically, within 30 seconds I was at the cash with Dior Lip Glow in tow and a sample of the Dior Nude Foundation. I have no will power and I admit it.

My intention was not to purchase the Lip Glow because a lip balm is a lip balm is a lip balm, but not for $32.50. Nonetheless, I've worn it religiously for three days straight and I can see the product already depleting. The color is nice and when pairing it with a gloss over top, its gorgeous. This balm does not stain your lips it tints them. For staying power I rate this product a 6.5 or 7 out of 10 for endurance. This tube is going straight into my Flight Attendant uniform because up in the air its very dry and we're constantly applying lip moisturizers. You should see the stash of lip and hand products in our purses! I'm hoping to find a dupe for this product so this won't hurt my wallet.

In the meantime, I snapped a few photos of myself wearing the Dior Lip Glow on my lips and nothing else. Its actually really pretty on but at this rate it might get to the bottom of the tube within two weeks. For that reason alone, I'm not sure if I will repurchase this product. This is my intention at least for this week.

Hopefully this was helpful and thank you for stopping by.xx
