I’ve been seeing little bits and pieces about Dior’s Lip Glow for a while now, and I decided that I just had to try it. I mean, how could a lip balm possibly know what exact colour to change based on my lips?
Well it does, and let me tell you, whatever this science is, is really cool. The product works adjusts to your body’s natural chemistry to create a personal shade that flatters any skintone.
As Dave Lackie mentioned, Dior really is at the forefront of cosmetics innovation, they consistently create makeup and skincare products that wow and surprise me.
My lips are naturally a medium pink colour, which makes it hard for me to pull off corals and lighter-coloured lipsticks because the darker colour of my lips show through. This made me a bit skeptical about trying the Lip Glow, but I needn’t have been worried. My lips turn a pretty peony pink which brightens my whole complexion. While the colour is bright, it looks completely natural since the formula adjusts to fit your colouring. Quite simply amazing.
This product would be especially perfect for girls who are a bit hesitant when it comes to lip colours and wearing lipsticks and glosses. This balm glides on smoothly, and can be applied without a mirror as it is very light and translucent. Plus, once the balm has faded away, the colour still remains on the lips.
To go hand in hand with the Lip Glow is Dior’s Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush, which also works with the same science to create a naturally angelic flush on any skintone. While the hot pink shade does look a bit intimidating in the pan, once on the face, it creates a beautiful, innocent young glow that makes me feel as if my skin becomes a little more porcelain. As the colour is translucent and shimmer-less, it looks completely as if it truly is your flush. The formula is ultra light, highly pigmented and lasts all day long. I only apply a tiny amount of this product to the tops of my cheekbones (near the eye), to create a vibrant, I just woke up from a 12-hour sleep, glow.
Now I just need to get my hands on the Nail Glow…
