This new year feels… slightly frigid, but full of hope for longer days, new beginnings, and a fresh outlook. Dior Addict Lip Glow is a sheer, lightly pigmented line which gives lips a healthy fresh sheen and a hint of color. I’m in love with the concept of showing natural beauty by highlighting rather than covering. Protection and nourishment should be at the heart of makeup, as it’s only as good as what’s underneath! I apply a couple coats of the lip glow which glides on like butter. Lips are instantly moisturized and take on a uniform pink tint which looks polished and healthy. Although the lip glow hints at spring, it’s particularly soothing right now with the bitter wind chapping lips like no other. Three finishes are available depending on what look you’re going for: dewy, holographic, and matte. The Holographic finish is new to the line, which has a subtle iridescent finish to enhance lips, and for me it has an optical plumping effect as well. The new Matte is still very comfortable but with a more velvety look. My favorite color is the divine lilac, which shows up as a subtle tone which isn’t too pink on my naturally rosy lips. I really appreciate the long-lasting effects of the glow, as I’m always on the go and don’t have time to reapply every few minutes.
The Dior Addict Lip Glow was born as a backstage staple, and is now a ubiquitous favorite in chic makeup bags for good reason. The balm-feel with a variety of colors to complement any skin tone makes it indispensable. The lip glow can be used alone or layered under a darker shade for longevity and comfort. Pictured above are my top three, pink, coral, and lilac. I highly recommend picking a couple to start using now, hopefully luring Spring in earlier!
