Starting nice and easy for my first beauty post after my not-so-short blog vacation, with the oh-so-pretty Dior Addict Lip Glow. This is a product I bought specifically for the packaging, and just hoped that it was decent enough to justify the $41 CDN price tag.
What it is: A sheer balm that enhances your natural lip color while moisturizing and protecting lips.
What it does: Awaken and enhance the natural beauty of your lips with this unique balm. Formulated with color reviver technology, this silky lipstick reacts with the chemistry of your lips to create a special shade that will last all day. The addition of SPF 10 will keep you protected, while hydrating mango butter and loofah extract nourish for beautiful, luscious lips.

I picked it up in 001 pink, and it is the perfect ‘my lips but better’ shade. It’s also the most amazingly creamy lip balm I have ever worn. I typically have four or five different balms/glosses in my purse and I almost always reach for this one. It feels wonderful going on and my lips feel comfortable and hydrated for an hour or two. It has SPF 10 which is great, but if that’s all you are looking for there are plenty of options that are far cheaper. This, to me, is a splurge item. It’s absolutely wonderful in every way but the price. I’ll definitely buy it again one day, but it won’t be a regular item in my makeup bag.
